    Also known as the RROD error, my 360 now has 3 flashing red lights on the front panel thing... Anyone have ideas on how to fix it? I might try towel fix, but it seems very stupid. I could also let it "cooldown" but idk if that will fix anything... Ideas?

    3 year warranty on RROD. Send it back to Microsoft.

    Call Microsoft, they repair them for free.

    I had this too (back in November). Tried the towel trick, but you're better of just buying a new one (if you are out of warranty). Microsoft does charge to fix the RRoD. The latest shipment has the new 65nm GPU codenamed Jasper. It greatly reduces the chance of the RRoD.

    Ok... wait, will they not give me a refurbished one if i call them? They would give me the new 65nm GPU as well, right? I don't have the money to buy a new xbox 360 right now...
