For instance, i've personally heard of 3 people with 360s and their system pops up with 3 red lights while not letting them play. And i've heard other stories like this online. What causes this and what can be done to prevent this from happening?
 
I'm actually thinking of saving up a little more money and buying my 360 new from store. Like i said b4 the online store on ebay has good systems but i don't wanna take the chance anymore
 
Again; what can i do to keep this happening to a new system? And have any of u had problems with ur 360?


like ced said some failures are do to poor care but a lot of them are because of the faulty design.  there are people that have had their 360 since launch and had no problems but a lot of people have had multiple problems with their systems.  What causes the 360 to display 3 red lights is when the system overheats and the GPU or CPU pops off of the mother board therefore showing a complete system failure.  Theres not really a way to prevent it from happening but your best bet would be to get the newer premium 360 with HDMI, microsoft also is selling the new premiums with 2 free games for the holiday seasons. By buying that version u should less likely have problems.

Thanx...I bought a Premium Xbox 360 for $150 today from my boy's cousin. Its in perfect condition (he bought it, beat Gears of War, and has had it in his closet since).
Then i went to Gamestop and bought Call of Duty 4 and 13 months of xbox live  :-D my username on there is Tha 3o5 King (that's the letter "o" and not a zero). What's u guy's? and let me know if n e of u play call of duty online
 
And how do u hook up the hdtv part?  I have a 45 inch plasma screen and i want to get the best out of it
