    you can send it in, they will fix it cheaper than buying a new one, and try putting upgraded fans in it and you should be able to fix it

    Yeah I'm on the same one I bought in July. It still works great. However I bought one 6 months before that one which started messing up a little. It didn't matter in the end, because I bricked that one with a bad flash. I got it right the 2nd time though.

    It never ceases to amaze me how many people end up with dodgy consoles. I've had mine since launch here in Australia and never had a single problem; and the people I know who've got one have never had problems either.

    Easiest way to fix all those broken console problems. Go to Target and get a new console. Take the case off the old console and put it on the new one. Take the old console back the next day complaining of 3 red lights and demand your money back. Works everytime.

    I dont think alot of people do have problems with there xbox 360's, I havnt had any issues with my own, the case is that people only go on forums mostly when there systems die out on them or when they have problems, because of this, we only know of people complaining about the system, look at the real world, everyones enjoying the 360 with no probs!!!
    LOL ;)

    I have left mine on for days, seriously, its just a computer, nothing out of the ordinary, it can run for real long without any problems. I've left my slimline v12 on for several days too, both consoles have no problems at all. :p

    Best thing to do is just make sure its in a well ventilated area, if you do just that, you wont need additional fans or anything.

    From what I've heard, it is mainly the consoles manufactured back in 2005 that have problems.

    Even thought, I doubt it was all of them that had the same problem, only a few had these faults.
