    Need help turning it into the RRoD, and helpful comments would rock.
    thanks


    edit:
    called 1800junkxbox and they said to let it cool till it was cool to the touch, did that, then it started flashing on powerup. I then called back and they told me to let it cool overnight. Did that same thing.

    Got the console (refurb) in january of this year. It was made in feb 08. The cost of repair is 99 bucks just on the 2 lights, I want to get 3 lights or convince them to replace it free. Any help? (I don't wanna open it up and reapply thermal paste.)

    Just send it in for three red rings, I'm sure they'll fix it up anyways.

    Just try to overheat it.

    Or pop off a RAM chip.

    Refurb as in from M$ or from someone else or a store?

    If it does not have a sticker on it then there is no way they will touch it unless you are lucky.

    To overheat it, just cover the vents with something like towels and leave it in a small confined space like a TV cabinet or entertainment cabinet. Turn it on and let it run for a long time like hours.

    Popping off a RAM chip would be quicker.

    The console won't even power up, the fans kick on...and then everything powers off but the flashing lights.

    If the warranty sticker is still on, then just call them and tell them that it has 3 RRoD. Then send it in, they won't care unless the warranty sticker is gone.

    Just send it in. They will fix it. Doesn't have to be the 3 ring. Just tell them it is, and they'll fix it.

    I'll do it online, seems simpler and I don't have to talk to anyone with horribly broken english.

    coffin is supposed to get here sometime tuesday per UPS's email.

    btw, I'll be on my 6th 360
