>your second xbox 360 just RROD
People shove them in tight spaces with no air circulation like idiots and cry when it's blows up. Mine died after 5 years only because I played 18 hours a day for a whole summer.
The innards actually overheat and merely, causing this problem. Future models of 360 solved this problem.
PS3 had a similar problem with original models. The thermal paste was not applied properly, which is what causes the ylod if the paste stops working.
Xbone really took drastic measures to ensure it could not possible happen. Huge airflow inside, tons of vents, massive internal fan, external power brick. Better safe then sorry, plus the system is superlatively whisper quite, unlike the 360 when losing from discs.
I've never owned an xbox or cared to look it up, why did Microsoft implement a mechanism to tell you when your machine is going to fail? Shouldn't that have been a huge red flag towards the engineering of the product? So instead of making it able to cool off more efficiently, they just slap a red ring on it and say, "welp, gonna fail someday."
>tfw putting my consoles in my TV stands shelf behind glass doors to keep them from getting caked in dust after 24 hours
>Still don't know what I'm going to do about airflow
It can't be as easy as putting a tiny fan back there could it?
well it's standard procedure. Perhaps the RROD is indicative of a general failure to operate, and it's just that an overlooked issue with overheating ended up being what always causes it.
They are all on a ticking time bomb, however tree applying the thermal paste will all but fix it for many many years to come.
It was helpful to tell externally what the problem was, there were different color codes so one might literally tell you that the video cables are just not plugged in right. Better then sending out to get fixed.
Make sure the back of that shelf is completely open, and not just one that has a small hole for the cables. Also keep away from wall, and surea small fan would help.
MS rushed to market. It was an oversight I believe. It absolutely paid off for them though, well worth the risk.
Bet your mom has plenty of fans inside her though.
My 360 redringed a few days before halo 3 came out. REeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeedddddEeeeeEeEe
>bought a 360 for dirt cheap in 2006
>it just werks after 10 years
Learn how to take better care of your shit, faggots.

>have a 360 that works flawlessly, absolutely no problems
>just plug my chatpad into the controller one day and the 360 essentially gets a BSOD when I try to type
>send it in for replacement
>get back a scratched up piece of shit that's louder and gets hotter
though I guess at this point that refurb lasted longer than my first so whatever
This. Have a 360 which I used a lot for about 4 or 5 years, only slightly annoying thing was that it really was notably louder than any other console I had, but every game always ran, I never had any sort of crash and never that RROD bullshit either. Loud, but reliable, all in all, was a really sweet console.
first 360 i had was modded to played burned games so i got banned off live on that console after a couple weeks then the console started to red ring so i got an elite and it still stands 7 years later
>buy a cheap 360 arcade in 2009
>flash it soon after
>have a friend I met on GTA IV's MP and play with him almost all the time since then
>play online all day on self-burnt discs including playing games before their actual release
>nothing ever broke
>not banned, never even flagged
feels bretty gud desu, gonna be switching to mustard race this year though
