Cure for 360 "Ring of Death"…cook your Xbox

The only cure for the Xbox 360’s "red ring of death" status message is to basically send in your console to Microsoft for repairs.

But a homebrew solution has come around on some internet sites and one gamer has demonstrated that it does work. Will we try it? No, but it sure was fun reading the guy’s solution. Here it is as reported by PacoDG on Xbox 360 Rally:

1– Put one towel down, put the 360 on top, add another towel on top, cover all sides/backs/etc. This is key, you have to have that Xbox covered. When you can’t see it, finger around to find the power button and turn it on. Wait 10-15 minutes. I started at 5:22am, and then started to do crap on the computer to kill time.

2– Then I got so into other stuff, I ended up turning the system off at 5:37am, so I did the full 15 minutes, no biggie. Now it was.

3– Cool down time. I waited 15 minutes before turning back on the system as recommended.
Turned back on, I got a [edited] when all I seen was green lights. I turned off the system to put back in the hard drive and throw in a game.


If you want to see how all of this works, go to YouTube. The video is pretty entertaining. The guy should consider working in the video production field.
