Your in luck, because I know 'em all Smile

1 RED RING: Your console can't load the data from your Harddrive. This happens when you put your Harddrive in another Xbox, if the disc reader in your HDD isn't working properly, (YOUR HDD IS A SMALLER GAMECUBE DISC WITH A DISC READER! =0) or if the disc is damaged or dirty. Cost to get repaired is $100 online and $120 through the phone.
Common Error Code: E68.

2 RED RINGS: System is overheating. Stop playing (it will force you to stop anywho), and remove HDD so it doesn't get corrupted (can lead to 1 Red Ring).
Common Error Code: ???

3 RED RINGS: Your system is broken. You can do the Hot Towel trick, but don't tell Microsoft that, or they will void your warranty. Don't bother calling Customer Support; the first thing you hear is that if you have this error, get it repaired, no questions asked. Console usually freezes, or turns off by itself in some cases.
Common Error Code: E74

4 RED RINGS: Your AV cables are either unplugged or damaged. Most cases, it's unplugged. Plug 'em back in and boom, it's gone. If it's damaged, you have to buy a new one.
There isn't an Error Code.

No! Make sure it's not too cold. That's how ours (my friend and I) broke. We went through a snowstorm with no heat (it broke during the storm) and it was 57 degrees in his room and 50 deg downstairs. We got 3 Rings but since his has an internal memory unit, he got his fixed the next day. I got mine fixed and got 1 Ring right after that.

Farenheit. Ours were standing up on carpet, so that most likely contributed to our problem

If it was in Celsius the 360 would have RRoD'd from melting, not from cold...

There is way's to prevent the 360 from overheating,which prevent's RROD.
And it's all in the instruction manuel's if you look closely.

If anyone want's to know how to prevent it,PM me.

I have played Mass Effect 2 constantly for 2 week's in a row and my 360 didnt overheat once.

i know how to keep your 360 cool and how to prevent disk scratching and RROD.
