    I've not got a xbox but i've heard about the red ring of death. Doing some googling will bring up a couple of answers for you, but i think off the top of my head it's a 'back to microsoft' job

    Damn RROD, just sent my sick Xbox off in the last hour?? Apparently it should be returned in 2-3 weeks, before Xmas eve then? Not holding out much hope!!

    My adapter went crazy once, didn't wanna play ball, left it, expecting to have to get it replaced, tried it the next day and it worked! No problems since.

    Is it still within it's years waranty??
