    try using new component cable. Or removing the hard drive and turn the 360 on.

    Only a matter of time before you get the 3ROL error. Get ready to deal with the new Microsoft 3 year Warrenty program.

    yeah i got this before my box died, i also got some nice coloured squares too. Freezing seems to be the first sign of bad times ahead.

    Whatever you do... DO NOT SEND IT TO MICROSOFT! I have sent in 10 consoles already... I am now in contact with my State Attorney General and the Better Business Burro! I am going to get my problem resolved once in for all!

    well i've thought of sending it to M$ coz now they extend the warranty to 3 yrs, all i hv to do is put the fw back to the orginal one and send it back to M$.

    Any suggestions.

    cheers

    As long as you have the sticker M$ shouldnt put a fuss up about the firmware! Just remember I have sent 10 consoles to Microsoft and none have been 'fully' functional if functional at all...
