Xbox360 is ferked =[

Recommended Posts

Was in the midst of a game of Fifa 09, when the game cut out and the ring of lights around the power button all flashed red.

 

Now the console won't turn on; it'll just flash red.

 

What the fuck is wrong with it? I'd only been on it for 5 minutes. :D

How many lights?

 

If its 3 its fucked.

 

3 :D

 

Best thing about that is is that it should be covered under the manufacturers warranty and you'll get it fixed for free.

 

(I think)

It's just MS's way of telling you to buy a new one. :D

should be under your warranty

common problem, kid bro's died after a month

his replacement didn't even last a day.

 

 

shoddly made, it's something to do with the cheap circuit boards and solder they used to make them, when it gets too hot some of the solder melts/cracks and you lose connections

 

one of the ways people had been fixing them was wrapping them in towels and turning them on (i shit you not) to overheat them and try get the joins to repair..

I'm linking this thread and all the ones on NO about it next time someone asks whether they should get a PS3 or an Xbox.

 

They should get a Wii.

What is TVersity?

 

Free app that allows you to use your PC as a media server. You install it on your computer and it pops up on your PS3 menu and you can access media files on you computer and play them through your TV. So downloaded TV shows/movies/music etc.

Nice.

 

So basically a wireless external hard drive? (or using your computer as such)

 

I think I'll give that a shot.

 

Frees up some room on the PS3 hard drive I suppose - I only have the 40 gig one.

Sorted - That is awesome :(

 

Just previewed music/video/picture and it works no problem.

 

Can you have two at the same time because I might set the laptop up as well?

Awesome it is able to take sopcast -

 

Get a 700 kb/s stream (with 54 mb p/s wireless) on and you basically have high quality football on your television.

 

Just tried it with a poor stream and it worked fine - audio too. :(
