Some players have met this issue “The Ring of Death” with the 360.
But what should you do when this issue occurs?
Should you throw it and get you a new 360? or just leave it be and try another console system?
The answer is NO, as long as you haven’t done any modifications inside the xbox and “killed” the varranty you should contact the xbox support in your contry for maintenance. They will send you a box where you can put the xbox and you will also be told to whom you must deliver it too. As the ring of death are a hardware issue the maintenance and shipping will be free of charge, just remember to detach everything that can be detached before you send it as you probably will get another one.
I have encountered this issue my self so I know how this works, and it works fine. Just remember they need some time to take a look at it, but it usually don’t take longer that about one week.
