Well, I think my 360 is broken. This is not my pic, but here is what I see

http//[" alt=""/img95e0415690]

There is no ring of death and it only freezes with those white lines down the screen. I dont think its overheated since I havent played all day. Any suggestions?

BTW, Im still under warranty.

Call them and send it out while its still covered, even if the problem is intermittent

You will have a new box in 1-2 weeks.

Don't forget to keep your hard drive if you want to keep your data.

so if I need to send it back, I can keep the hard drive?

when I had to send mine in they said it was no problem, just ask them when you call.

That is a heat issue, if it's under warranty, definatelt send it in. If it's not just add some decent thermal paste under the cpu and gpu heatsinks ) hope that helps. there's tons of tutorials @

Sorry to hear - we're on our 3rd 360 piece of junk and have given up - just ordered a PS3.

Rumor has it they're only tested and designed for 300 hours of playtime. Even my cousin's has died...I'm afraid that if I buy one it will, too.

Come to think of it, the vacation cabin we're renting this year has an Xbox 360....I wonder if it died on our time if they would charge us for it...

Quick update-What a mess. Just called last week. Got my box yesterday. Sent it out today for repairs. According to the xbox forums they are installing a new hardware among other things and are taking longer than usual.

Customer Support was actually good. My Rainbow Six game got stuck and it wouldnt open before I sent it out, so support told me how to open and to look it up online. Hopefully I get it before the end of the month.

I like my 360 and all, but this is a major issue. Its bound to break down.
