So, I traded my Wii for an xbox 360 about 6 months ago. The guy had the xclamps removed (and others i guess modded to play burned games) and wasn't supposed to red ring. Well, for awhile its been doing the red ring and sadly I've resorted to the towel trick after getting sick of opening the xbox and trying to fix it with xclamp fixes etc. (i dont have a heatgun :[). The towel trick works, for about 2 days to a week. so one day I got sick of it (the error code was 0102) and cleaned off old arctic silver and put new AS. Tried firing it up and it got the 3 red lights flashing and then went to 2 red lights flashing and turned off, except for the 2 dreaded red lights (its like M$ is laughing at you.) Well i removed 1 washer from screw (had 1 metal and 1 nylon) and just left the nylon ones on, also smoothed out arctic silver. still same thing. The Error code is now 0120
Towel trick is a no no. Buying a used xbox that has a xclamp fix is a definite NO NO unless you paid 20 dollars for it. Anyways the towel trick trashed your box, now go buy yourself a nice new arcade and don't ever do the towel trick again.
