I thought I was one of the lucky ones, but yesterday around 3:50 p.m. I was playing a Xbox original download game, Indigo Prophecy, when all of a sudden the game froze. Well, that happens all the time to my 360 but this time when I tried to restart the console these weird looking red eyes started staring at me. It was really freaky, cause it was sort of blinking and one of the eyes was missing. It had like a dead eye or something. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Tried to get help from M$ about this evil console but none of the methods worked. So I guess I have to ship it in to them. Thought I had to pay $100(which I dont have right now), but the order said $0.00 for repair. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I had a long reign, but after 1 year, 2 months, and 12 days, it finally happened. Just wanted to share a lil something since the forum is dead. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Don't feel too bad. I got the three RROD after buying my console in April after launch because it was a launch model.(proof they held them back to create more demand)

It happened right after Christmas that year. Then I sent it in, and I got a "new" one that had a broken sound card, so I had to send that one in to get fixed.http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Lol its ok guys. Strange though that the game, Indigo Prophecy, I beaten it earlier before "it" happened and the game had a bad ending. Its like the only game I know that was supposed to end in a bad way.

I better get this system back quick, I just went and bought Hitman: Blood Money.

One of the weirdest games I ever played. I played the demo of it a long time ago for the Xbox and thought it was going to be just some investigation game. I was supposed to get it, but it got lost away in memories. Now that I played and beaten it...the game changes so much when you play through, it starts to get very strange and very abnormal things start to happen.

Nothing good actually happens.

And sorry about your xbox,you could always try some trick that fixs it for people temporaily(sp),you wrap the towels around it and turn it on for a certain amount of time,i heard it only gives you a few hours of gameplay before you have to do it again.

@ SC she meant to spell it that way i think.

How long do you have to wait for them to get the box to you? No 360 for 4 days straight now is killing me because its just sitting there and not going to fix itself.

12-11-2007, 01:17 PM
I didnt get mine back for like 2-3 weeks once they called me and told me they got it,i had to send mine all the way too texas,i live in ohio.

Is texas the only repair center they have?

SilentAce07
12-11-2007, 03:32 PM
I do believe so.

The farther you are away from Texas, the longer it takes, is what I hear. But average timespan would be about 3-4 weeks from the time you call in the problem.

I havent been able to even send it in yet...do I have to wait a week or so for them to get the box to me?

If my 360 goes out, I shall revive it, ive already takin it apart 3 times, put some pads in the disc drive to keep it from scratching discs, was thinkin of puttin some Artic Silver on the heatsink to make sure itll never overheat. Bottom line is im gonna make mine work until calling for a medic just wont do. Ill never surrender it over to MS.

They wont even fix it if you send it to them now, they will tell you that you tampered with the system and what I hear is that they wont fix it for you if you did. But I actually got my question answered. Seems it will take 10-15 days for my repair order to go through.

That really did piss me off. This better be the only time I have to ship it to them.

Mine died as well.

However, you're lucky you got three red rings. I got one red light, which is a GPU failure. This isn't covered on their "free fix" policy, so I had to fork over $100 for the fix.

I'm still waiting for my box to come.

This is a really sucky time for it to break, being Christmas break and all.

12-16-2007, 08:08 PM
Its a really bad feeling, I know. Both of you wont have you're system back before x-mas, maybe in January. I have already spent more than a week without xbox and it sucks...badly. I just was able to send it in this past friday.

It took 3 days to get my box, not including weekends. Wish I lived closer to Texas...

CriminalOrigins
12-17-2007, 03:52 PM
Yeah I know there's no way its coming by Christmas....I ordered my box Wednesday, here it is Monday. No box.

The only good thing about paying the $100 is that you get a one year warranty extension.

LoL Naw, I showed it respect! Because I still have an XBox, and because I thought the 360 would be insulted, I rarely used it for original XBox games. And, since I only have a few 360 games, I just didn't use it that much.

I still love it though. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
