Red lights of doom. Just as Gears 2 and Fallout 3 are out. Fucking typical.
you used to be cool
This happened to me about a week after getting Halo 3. The towel trick (check youtube for info) does work but you have to keep re-doing it every day or so -- which is annoying.
MS were pretty good at getting it fixed though. Go to the web site and you can print of a mailing label. Box it up, call the courier to arrange a collection and off it goes. Mine was back in about a week and has been fine ever since (touches wood (ahem)).
due to the dash update or something. but i'll sort it out next week, shouldn't be a problem. just at a rubbish time yknow. we tried the towel method and it worked last night so i might do it this weekend to get more hours of fallout in before the big void
the towel trick worked..but as he says ^ it needs to be done often...we sent ours off to MS and within a week got another one back in full working order...
get a 120gb HDD after the update hits. You can install games to it to reduce the AIRPLANE-TAKING-OFF volume of the thing.
