The three "flashing red lights" have been nicknamed in these articles, as well as by the general public, as the "Red Ring of Death/Doom" ("RROD"), the "Red Light of Doom" ("RLOD") or the "Three Red Lights" ("3RL").

have a quick look around the net about it , ive seen a bit about it before i think it is ****** but if its under warranty you should be fine

Yes Kris it's ******, all xboxs now have a 1 year warranty for every other problem the 360 could occur but has a 3 year warranty for the ring of death. Either use the online service to set up a repair or ring xbox customer services and do it that way.

Unlutty mayte. :knockout:

After his xbox fell over my friends flashed with the Ring of Death, or whatever, but worked fine after fiddling with the wires in the back....

But unlucky

Think that would of been 4 lights and not 3. The 4 lights appear when the Xbox isn't connected properly.

its under a 1 year warranty, but for the ring of death its under a 3 year warranty, so it will be kris.

You wont need recepit or that either, when my ps2 broke i just gave them the serial number and they could tell if it was udner warranty (warranty had expired but they thought it was still udner warranty :p)
