Xbox 360 red ring of death cure found!!

It is caused by the gpu over heating because of the inefficient cooling fin design. It was purposly made smaller to make room for the dvd player.So what happens is the gpu gets overheated and is unseated. So this vid will so you what to do I have done this to a friends 360 and it worked great.its very easy to do. NEVER EVER USE THE TOWEL TECHNIQUE IT WILL CAUSE MORE DAMAGE.and I have a link on how to open the 360 also.

There are so many reasons why the RRoD happens. I had one and it was from a simple resister blowout that goes to the power supply on the mainboard (Motherboard). I fixed mine by installing a new resister but it keeps blowing out. The last time I fixed it I used a chopped up IC socket so I don't have to pull out my solder iron each time. I need to find a higher resistor so it doesn't blow out, at the same time i'm scared too because it might cause other things to blow/burn out.

Yeah they fix the problem with the new motherboard. I think it's last year.

Look in the back of the console the date manufactured. Maybe they refurbished yours with the new motherboard.

MS refurbed mine after I got the R.O.D.

Perfect since then. Mine had an unknown error.

I replaced the resistor that was 100kohms with a 110kohm and the system has been on for 16hours straight and no problems. I guess I found my cure

There are four motherboard models, the first two are known to have SERIOUS RROD issues. The latest two, falcon and Jasper, don't have it as often.

The Falcon unit has a smaller CPU core, from 90nm to 65nm if I remember correctly.
The Jasper has a reduction in both the CPU core and GPU core, the only unit to have both cores reduced in size, and power consumption

IMO Try to get a Jasper unit, or try to do the XClamp mod as that has been known for quite a few years now...

BTW, so far there have been no jasper units with the RROD failure reported.
