I just recently had the red ring of death and i was able to fix it by removing the X clip and directly bolted the heat sink by using screws. The red lights are gone. Now when i turn on my xbox only the center green light turns on. It's not flashing its just a solid light. I dont have the audio video cable and i dont have any controllers connected and no HD. So what do you guys think? Did i fix it? Can anyone try turning on their xbox 360 with out the controller, HD, A/V cable and tell me what happens?
Thanks in advance.
After you take the 360 apart to fix the 3 red rings u need to reset the system by wrapping a 3 to 4 towels around the system to make it over heat. This in a way resets the system. If you tried to hook it straight up to the net without the towel trick good chance Microsoft will ban the xbox from live.
