Try toothpaste, it's only worked once for me but it's worth a try.

Gamestop on 228 is usually pretty quiet on Black Fridays. At least in the past... Wink

Good point, stay off 19.... Thats where you lose the time, and get frustrated. Let me know about the toothpaste though.

This works.

Take it to a local shop or walmart and ask to have the disc surface cleaned.

Depends what is wrong with it, do you have a friend that has the same model of xbox so you can download your games to it from there xbox using your harddrive ?

Grab a hard drive from a laptop and stick it in the xbox and save everything to it. I didnt know laptop HDs worked but they do and it plugs right in.

Camaro, you want nothing to do with my box... Its Actually RRoD, but has been running with a towel around it for about 2 months... Lol..

Isn't this a brand new xbox for you? Didnt you just have some kind of issue going on?

Changed hard drives... That was it. I knew you were having some sort of issues with something... Before this one.

6 years?! I have had about 8 xbox's in that time.. I dont even play thaaaaaat much, but about once a year I RRoD and they send me a replacement. I believe I will be getting a new model for Xmas (Hopefully Wifey gets the hints... lol)

only other issue ive had was it overheated a few times cuz it was on a tight shelf with no vent.

i got it christmas day 6 years ago and the christmas after it RROD'd that was the only time it happened, i got it fixed under warrenty as well. still dont understand how this lasts 6yrs, but i have a original PS2 (one of the first that came out) and its been dropped from ~6ft a few times, spilled water on it and left running for days at a time and it plays like new, my lil brother still uses it

PS2's are indestructible for sure. Mine lasted me through college and you can only imagine what happened to it...

@ one point, I think was used to hold a window open because it wouldnt stay open... countless spitoons/beers spilled on it, few bowls, some cig burns... ahhh college...

It still works.
