    Ok my friend just got the rRod on his xbox and his mum bought him a new one, he says if i can fix it i can have it. The problem i have is that he hasnt given it to me yet so i dont know which lights are lit/not lit. Btw it was out of warranty by about 5 months. But he says it was either the player 1 not lit or player 2 not lit. What do these two mean?

    If there are any 3 lit that means that there is an internal problem. If you want to,when he gives it to you, you can search on google how to fix it and you should find one. But what ever you do don't do the towel trick. It might work for a little while but will just die again.

    Either way if you end up sending it in, it's most likely cheaper than buying a whole new xbox, so either way its a good deal. It's most likely player 2 that isn't lit, and to fix that yourself you'd need to open it up, which personally, I wouldn't mess around with.

    how to get your error message:

    turn on the xbox, and when the lights flash, press and hold the sync button. while doing this, press and release the disk eject button, and it will give you your number

    1 ring=1
    2 rings=2
    3 rings=3
    4 rings=0
    it is a four number error message, google it and it should help you.

    no prob and what i ment about internal problem is that the mother board or something(cant really remember because its been a while since i took mine apart) is getting to hot.

    Do the x-clap replacement. Ive fixed like 3 of my friends that way and they all still work. Make sure you get the exact parts listed otherwise things wont fit back together.
