My 360 gave me the 3 rings of death, but then they disappeared after I turned it off and turned it back on. Is this a sign of my 360 going to die on me again?I'm not sure if I should just call xbox to send me a box since it could break in the next few days.

That happened to my boys once.


He got the rings and quickly turned it off and turned it back on and they were gone.


About a year later, he got them again, quickly turned the xbox off but they were still there.....

^ was playing 2k9 then all of a sudden my tv went blank and looked at my 360 then bam it had the rings. I unplugged everything then plugged it back in and itwas good for a quick min then it did it again so i just turned it off. After a couple of minutes I turned it back on because I was trying to get my game outand it worked.

Well I've already had red rings, but there was one time on a very hot day I was playing COD4 and I got the 3 red rings so I shut it off and let it cool for30 mins. Right after its been working fine. Just saying that I didnt send mine in yet.

It's on its way out, how much time do you hav eon the original 3 year warranty, if its not long you may want to force it to fail. Do a google search andyou'll find what you need.

if u had it since dec i would say send it in but it's gunna take a while. When mine went and the warrenty was up i suggest to go to gamestop by a used onewith no hard drive for $170 then buy the yr warrenty from gs for $20 then everytime it breaks then swap it out for you and saves you the headache of waitinmonths for it to come in the mail
