    you really should avoid the towel trick and the penny fix as these will just lead to more problems. maybe a reball? it may be a little on the expensive side but its much cheaper than buying a new xbox.

    really, ok no more of them, i am currently trying to organize all the metarials for this tutorial:
    http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/topic/201540-xbox-360-oven-reflow-tutorial/

    i have finished the process, but it gives me now 3rrod, it worked oncE, when i tipped the xbox on its back and applied pressure, it turned on but only once, any idea?

    ok so more good news (i think) what happens is when i turn the console on it shows green light in the middle and the rings but after like 30 secs the green rings turn red
