    My xbox360 has just developed a case of 3 red lights. This ever happened to anyone else? Any ideas what I have to do now?

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.... it sounds like a hardware fault which will require it to be sent off for repair.
    There will be a page in the manual that tells you what the lights mean. Hopefully I am wrong...

    Here another:

    Might be worth sending it back to Microshite! Or just get a PS3 instead! :p

    I trained for 5 years as a broadcast engineer (then ended up as a sysadmin for a while like you Paulo!). That was one of the tricks I picked up along the way. The posh phrase for it is the 'slap test' :lol: :lol:

    Register for repair on the xbox website, it'll also tell you if you have warranty.

    My Xbox just came back from Microsoft in Frankfurt and it was very quick and a great service.

    Ring of death.

    I've had this twice on the same machine, first time repaired by MS, cost me £80, then they refunded this a few months later.

    Second time, i chucked the machine away, and bought a PS3, totally superior in all ways. Couldn't justify spending £80 on a 3 year old console when you can buy a new core 360 for around £160 new with 2 years warranty, the PS3 was £200. ;)
