Re: I'm F***ing Jinxed!!

Ouch, exact same thing just happened to my mate, luckily you'll probably get a free fix, they send a box out to you and you'll have another xbox in about a week (im on my 3rd). Warranty has been bumped up to 3 years.

Yep, online request made to get the new box sent, I'm glad it's happened within warranty like although I thought it was 2 years.

Got a can of Red Stripe now so it seems a little better

Re: I'm F***ing Jinxed!!

Luckily I haven't had the red light problem on my 360. But then again I don't play it all that much. The kids prefer playing with the Wii and I tend to play most of my games on my PC... Stuff the PS3 over priced, over rated, and still on the shelves...
If you want real games go for a Wii and a PC...

Re: I'm F***ing Jinxed!!

I occassionally get the three red lights on my console, but it's usually due to the power cable slipping out the back ever so slightly.

There is a guide available on line, that'll tell you how to diagnose the problem using the red lights and work out if it's fatal or not.

You have to press a number of buttons which will set off a sequence of lights, creating a numbered code. That code will then tell you what the issue is.

Re: I'm F***ing Jinxed!!

Bri, sometimes these things happen, then one day two or three brilliant things will all happen at once ... the thing to do now is to wander down the garden path into your private marble and pine steam room, get the three lovely ladies in there to get you all oiled up and have a lovely relaxing massage .... i do it every time something happens to upset me .....doesnt everyone?
