Hey guys, so I've just started playing my xbox 360 again after about a year of not playing and I've started experiencing some issues at any random time after starting to play (ranging anywhere from 2-20 minutes). I've had it since late 2009.
This is a video to show the issue I'm experiencing
These are the steps I've taken to troubleshoot the issue, unfortunately I don't have an error code to refer to.
I've tried on multiple televisions, using both HDMI cables and the original AV Cables that came with the system.
I've cleared my system's cache.
I've tried different games, all of which are working just fine on my brother's 360.
I don't have an xbox live account and can't request online assistance, nor do I think my 360 is under warranty anymore.
Hoping someone can shed some light on my situation, please and thank you.
Ok so I've contacted Microsoft and I'm shit out of luck with no warranty. And I still have no error code OR Red Rings.
So, being impatient and wanting to play some games (without annoying intterruption), while willing to do a self-inflicted repair, while spending as little money as possible.
I'm wanting to replace my 360's DVD Drive, but I'm not wanting to do it with the proper Hitatchi GDR 3120L Optical Drive because it's $40. I have an extra DVD drive and I don't care if it's not mounted inside of my 360, I don't mind having an ugly contraption.
Can this be done assuming I'm able to switch the logic chip (as I've read needs to be done) from the 360's Optical Drive, to a spare DVD drive I have available?
