hmmm....what to do?

Post by LMR DarthMario on Fri 8 Apr 2011 - 2:19

...my 360 Elite is all but RRoD. i had been doing a couple races in the Event List with my ISCC prepped R8 LMS (GT3 Invitational), then switched my tv over to watch The Big Bang Theory, after the show ended, i switched my tv back to see my xbox froze while waiting to start the next race. i thought nothing of it, so i turned it off and back on, and to my luck, its not getting past the Xbox360 start animation (cannot get to the dashboard; tried with & w/o the hdd attached a couple times too). im torn wether to call for a 'coffin' or just pick up a 250GB Slim model and do the liscence transfer. if anyone has done the liscence transfer, does the older console need to be in working condition?

When mine RRODed, I sent it to M$ who fixed it for free and for the 3 weeks that it was gone, I bought a used 360 from gamestop that I sold to a friend once I got my original one back.

I could just call for the coffin, but from previous experience, I may miss more than the Mugello ISCC race while I'm up in boston. My original xbox360 rrod'ed the Sunday before the Motegi DLC came out for FM2. I didn't get it back til xmas weekend.

My new 250GB Slim console does that from time to time. It freezes on the intro animation and just sits there and has done for about half an hour before. I just have to switch it on and off for ages and try taking the hard drive out etc etc and eventually it startes working again but its mega slow to load things and it sometimes crashes. Then the next day it works perfectly. It's so annoying.

I think it a hard drive issue. I simply can't install games ot the HDD anymore as when I am playing anything off the HDD it freezes and crashes and I am displayed an error message that reads "Cannot read data from disc drive" or something like that. The disc isn't even being used! Stupid microsoft garbage. I'm on my 5th Xbox.

If it is an HDD problem I may have to reformat, but I will lose most of my data. I have my Forza stuff transfered to my USB drive so it's safe, but I can't fit all my date onto a stick.

I tried turning it on this morning, letting it sit overnight, and it turned on with no problem. Didn't try throwing fm3 into the tray, but was able to sign in. Hmm.... when I get home tonight from work/gym, I'll try it again.

Yeah, thats like mines. Last time home I could barely sign in and took ages to do anything. I ended up just not playing the Xbox because of the hassel of simply turning it on. Since I got back yesterday its been completely normal.

I guess I may need a new HDD instead of a whole new console?

welp. that answers that question. just now trying to get one full lap in at the Old Mulsanne, it locked up. turned it off and back on, and ta-da! RRoD. turned it off again, detached the Hdd and removed the FM3 disc, and the RR comes back. maybe it wasnt the harddrive, or maybe a combination of both....

edit: just did the online repair request, and its not going to cost me a dime, so thats something. i hope the 'coffin' arrives and i can ship it out before i head up to boston.

Never a good sign when it starts to crash, my first 360 kept crashing...turned it off and it rrod. Then I got my elite and I've not had rrod yet (Touch wood) but it went back to M$ with a disc drive problem.

Send them a nasty email, I had a huge go at them in an email about how useless they are and they don't care for the customers, it's all about money etc and within 5mins of me sending it I got a call from M$. UPS turned up on my doorstep the next morning...RAPEDO! Console sent to Germany I think it was, had it back in just over a week I think it was.
