The Xbox 360 "Ring of Death" (video)

We've all heard of Microsoft's blue screen of death, now it seems there is an infamous red ring of death!

Watch the video:

Xbox 360s failing just outside of the warranty causes annoyance!

I've had 4 lights on the ring of death before, but that was the hard drive playing up, i removed it and the box worked again put it back in a few days later and all was well again. (yes i tried putting it back in imediatly after i got the box back working to no joy)

It makes you wonder if some of these issues are just simple fixes, and people are being charged £80 for a 5 minute repair job.

£80 is quite cheap though, i used to work for a company (on work experience placement so they paid me nothing) that charged £800 for a hardware 'upgrade' which consisted of unsoldering a write protect resisitor hooking it upto a pc, flashing it with new software which changed the name it displayed on boot up, and then soldered in a new resistor.

Was about 5 maybe 10mins work.

They charge for their "knowledge" more than the work involved. I was told that many times when I complained about how Geek Squad, when I worked there, rips people a new one when they take their computers in for work.
