    15 hours to RRod

    So I bought a new 360 Arcade last night and just used my hard drive from my other box that I fixed. Sure enough this morning 15 hours after I paid for my box turns off and I got 3 red lights. When I unplugged the cords I noticed that the video cable was stuck inbetween standard and HD. I fixed that and it has worked fine since, has anyone heard of that before?

    You sure you were getting three Red Rings?

    If your video cable is unplugged you get a different warning.

    I've had that happen before when the power cord wasn't in firmly enough. I was sure I had gotten the rrod until I called xbox customer support and they helped me trouble shoot it.

    Yeah it was definately three red rings. My other xbox died a month ago so when this happened again I was about to build a bomb. I almost positive it was the video cord being inbetween settings, or atleast I hope.

    I had my 3RROD at the begining of the year. I got it fixed by XBOX. Now everytime I turn my XBOX on I fear it won't work. Don't like that feeling.

    I got it once when the disc I had in it was off centered somehow...Ejected it, made sure it was flat then it was good to go. Scary feeling for sure...
