Well i was playing my xbox ealier tonight and it froze. I turned it back on and the screen goes blue and stops after a little bit. I then let it sit there for 2 hours and try it again, loads a game again, i go get a drink and some chips, come back and its a black screen. I turn it off and turn it back on and bam, Red lights of doom.

Gonna try this, hope it works-->http://www.x-clamp-fix.com/catalog/product_info.php?info=p5_X-Clamp-Fix-DIY-Kit.html

I think this will work because sometimes it will start up again, and others it has 3 rings. So im almost positive that its the solder is lose.

If you receive graphical errors or crashes then the "Hot Air Gun Trick" is needed instead of the "Baking Trick". Because the Temperature is higher and the solder balls will bake much better then.

This is a quote from the site. Since my xbox screen either goes black or the screen color turns weird and freezes should i do the baking or hot air gun trick?

my buddy was in the same boat man, he opened his 360 to change the color of the ring lights from green to blue and it worked fine....4 months later, gets the red ring of death.....get this...i took it to wal mart for him, with no reciept. told the lady at the returns desk that the eject button wasnt working right and that the disk tray kept getting stuck. the lady took the 360 out of the box, glanced at it to see that there was no apparent physical damage. she put it back in the box and told me that since i didnt have my receipt that i couldnt get my money back but i could exchange it. so i said that was i what i wanted anyway. she sent me to the electronics dept to pick out a new one and BAM...in less than 15 min my friend had a new 360....wish i woulda known that worked before i sent mine back to MS haha....make sure its a super center tho b/c the small ones tend to get pissy about bringing stuff back like that....it should work tho man....im 90% sure that it will...just be smooth about it Cool

I was playing crackdown when it happened, then i switched to gears then it went red ring.

Wes, only games i have for x-link is halo 1, halo 2, rainbow six 3, and star wars battlefront.

Ill try to get a new box if the x-clamp fix doesn't work.
