have a late 2007 falcon (elite)- bought it new last year around September probably - have had it for less than a year.

It went rrod last week

- xclamp fixed it, it worked, then got e74
- did bake trick by unplugging fan - and that fixed it for maybe 6-8 hours, then the whole screen goes all Matrix with green sh*t running down the screen. (yeah i deserved that, its actually quite a stupid thing to do when you think about it - especially since the system is on)
the next week consisted of:

open,bake,close
arrgghh
open,rebake,close
arrrhh

finally i removed the heatsinks, cleaned the chips - baked with a hairdryer over the gpu for 5 mins, gave it a perm etc. yeah, i dont have a griddle, heat guns or any such thing at all from youtube vids, this is as suburban as you can get)
--zalman thermal greased it (didnt have arctic silver on hand) and its back to working like normal again.

gave it a 16 hour marathon on star ocean - no matrix, no glitches no problem.

yet

if it fritzs again, ill just buy a jasper and a lian li case for it, cause yeh, after seeing the gpu heatsink, honestly i can't see why it didnt rrod much sooner.

i was also very dissapointed with my 360. It's a zephyr and I half expected it to red ring after some time.

I had it for almost two years. It was a microsoft refurb when I bought it and I thought it would have been fixed but I was clearly wrong.

I did the xclamp fix, it worked for two weeks. Then it ringed. Reheating got it to only work for minutes. Don't think I'll bother to fix it again I'll just get the jasper.

i'm not sure of my version, I use my 360 a lot no issues, bought it in Aug 2006 Hitatchi drive, just replaced the drive last week due to unreadable disc errors, with a drive that was manufactured in feb 2007 hitatchi.

Only problem i've had so far, thank god.

Is it live or is it Memorex?

Aahhh crap. My falcon just gave out. RIP, 04/17/2008 - 08/21/09. I'm hoping the next one I get is a jasper, but don't believe it will do much better, if not worse, than the falcon. Maybe valhalla will save us? tongue.gif

Got one on my falcon a month ago and thought wtf?. switched it off, changed the location (front of an open window) and the rod was gone, but i got no picture and no sound. after a couple of minutes i figured out that the hdmi-port had died ;( now using a vga-cable and no problems since. suggestions on how to revive my hdmi?


and there should be an option to add a vote to this poll everytime a box got a rod. i have 3 now und voted only for 1 (i think)

My Falcon has RROD'd twice.

First 'fix' was the memory chip heat sink 'penny fix'.

The one I finished yesterday was a hybrid x-clamp removal hack (through-bolted the sinks to the outer shell). I hope that lasts longer than the penny hack, which was good for about 3 weeks.

I voted Opus but I think it is actually a Jasper (or maybe a Falcon - in retrospect I probably should've checked that out before voting and posting - doh!). My g'friends son has had it just over 12mths (so warranty was out) and it stopped reading disks. After some hesitation I opened it and tweaked the laser (as seen on Youtube) and it worked a treat! But within a week got the dreaded 3RROD constantly for about 24 hours (would not boot at all - tried it numerous times). After reading up I went to check the exact code (before pulling it apart again) and it is now working fine again - wtf?!? Oh well, shouldn't complain I guess, just have to keep my fingers crossed. No doubt its only a matter of time though!

There is a 3 years warranty for the RROD. Check the Xbox website support for more informations on how to return your XBox for free to Microsoft within 3 years from date of purchase.

My Xenon RROD'd about 8 months ago. Even though I know it won't last I did the x-clamp fix and have gotten at least a few hundred hours of game play out of it so far with no problems.
