    i have the first xbox360 (comes with brick power supply)

    i got the red ring o' death once before, sent it into microsoft and they fixed the problem.

    about a month ago, i now have the first 3 parts of the ring lighting up red?

    anybody know of any remedies i can try at home?

    or am i SOL??

    im going to try a combination of those instructions, with an idea of my own.

    im going to keep the x clamps

    im just going to clean the cpu's, and put new thermal gel on them


    should do the trick imo

    The penny trick worked for me for a while... then the 360 broke as I expected. I have left it broken with RROD until i painted it black today.
