yeah, red ring of death. microsoft fixed it once, about a year or so ago. it started acting up last october, and got worse over the course of a month.
sent it to one of my friends' friend. guy seemed like he knew what he was doing. he purchased the same machine thingie (stop me if i get too technical) that ms uses to fix 'em, and it was unfixable.
i don't want to buy a used one, since so many got banned.
i'll pick up a new jasper series soon, i'm kinda draggin my feet til i move. i'll get a new xbox and a nice over-sized lcd to waste a few months.

Yea that's the only thing about these consoles, they often end up breaking sooner or later. I got a refurbished one online about two years ago, and got another RROD. Had some guy replace the heat sinks and it's been working fine since, I'm sure it'll be a matter of time before I'll have to pay another visit. Damn you Microsoft!

the new jasper series is supposedly better. a faster board, that doesn't use as much power. that and a better (more efficient) cooling fan.
also, i've heard a few different reasons for the failures.
first is that ms used standoffs that were a cunt-hair too long, so the board flexed. when playing for a long time with poor circulation, the solder grew brittle, and the flexing caused the solder to "run", losing contact.
a similar theme posits that ms tried to use an environmentally safe solder, and was unaware it had a slightly higher 'melt', or 'set' point, and the solder never really set.
either way, the new jasper series is said to have addressed all these issues, so i'll get a brand new toy soon.

You know you are addicted to MW2 when you use sayings like "You noob tubing bastard" and "you team killing fucktard" in real life towards your friends or the assholes on the road.- from my wife.

I'm selling a 20g xbox with a controller and a few games for $150. It's a few years old but isn't banned and works fine.

first off, lol at me. i just this second realized that your avatar does NOT say BACON SQUADRON.

although that might be my new motorcycle gang's name.

i might be interested in your xbox, if you give me some kinda return option. i'd hate to save fifty bucks, and end up with a dead console in a month. not that you're gonna burn me, but the xbox has a rep for dying for a reason....

my 50" plasma, purchased 10 days before MW2 came out, took a shit on me.

I cried. I was supposed to get a call from Samsung today.

That's a tough one. What is a fair return time? Doesn't help me pay bills if I have to hang onto the $ for 3 months...

They are known as failures and I forgot that they are only $200 now. Maybe I'll donate it to a church or something, I'd hate for it to die on someone and cause problems.

thats the thing. you got any little relatives? a niece or nephew? most kids have two or three consoles nowadays, maybe a neighbor kid or something?
and i wouldn't expect you to hold the cash forever, but it sounds like you know where i'm coming from.
the arcade versions are 2 bills, with a couple games and some other add-on crap to get them to move off the shelves.

Try Craigslist or eBay, that way if it does croak for some reason, you won't feel guilty about it. $150 sounds like a reasonable price since you're including games as well.

i stated that i'd find a 40-42" with all the goodies for less than 550, and i'm very close. i saw a 42" with fast refresh, good contrast, and 1080p for 599, free shipping.
