I got the dreaded 3RROD in September and sent it off to be fixed by a well known store that will not be named for legal reasons. After it came back, it had been switched on about 15 times MAX! Since then and I got graphics glitches and crashes, before it eventually went to the RROD again.
I contacted the people involved and thay said it was out of the 90 day warranty and it was down to bad M$ design. Angry as I was, I said sod it!!! I will try the X-Clamp method and do it myself.
Upon opening the 360 via tutorials that I got from this site, I was shocked and stunned that there 8 screws missing from the xbox. The ones that should be on the X-Plate at the bottom of the xbox.
These pictures quite clearly show that they SHOULD be there.
So the question is.. what do these screws do. And do think they could be the cause of the overheating on the GPU. BTW the error code is 0110....
After opening the rest I took pictures of how they screwed the X-Plate back on, on the CPU.
I thoughts these had to be tightened EQUALLY??? One of them is just about hanging on 1 thread
So the question is... has this been fixed to a professional standard, or is it shoddy work that has caused this to RROD again??? Do I have a case to chase them up over this.. it cost me £112 in all for this... AND they lost my XBOX for 3 weeks!!!!
I respect your opinions... you lot seem to know what you are doing at least!!!
