I need some help and advice please.
My 360 was 3RROD with 0102. I heatgunned top and bottom, applied AS5 and reassembled with screws and washers on the heatsinks. Back to life we came and played my backup of Tiger Woods 08, 18 holes. (2 under par)
That was last night. Tonight the 360 freezes and occasionally gives a red tartan like screen 5 minutes after gameplay begins. If i immediately restart the 360 it starts fine as if nothing was wrong. I can leave the dash sitting and nothing nasty happens. Everything is fine if I stream a divx. I tried a normal dvd movie and shortly after it starts it freezes. I've tried both a RGB scart and VGA (1024x768). Both do the same.
Conventional wisdom would be to try heatgunning again for a bit longer but the fact that the 360 seems fine unless the dvd drive is being used has me wondering if the problem lies there. Drive is a samsung.
I haven't put the 360 into the cage yet incase this is warping the board, the fans I have a talismoons running at stock voltage.
Everytime is freezes it can be started fine. Not seen a RROD in about 20 restarts.
There still is a cold joint, adjust the tightness of the screws, if this doesnt solve it give the heatgun another go and make sure that you use the timings made in my tutorial, otherwise you might end up not having it reflowed properly again...
