    So, have encountered the Red Ring of Death with my 360. This happened about 6 months ago for the first time, at which point I posted and MacRumorUser helpfully pointed out that sometimes the hard drive can come loose. Indeed, I jiggled it a tad, and things worked fine, and all was well again... until this morning.

    I can't imagine anything that I _did_ to the 360 causing this. I left for the night, came back and the end. I've owned it since December of 2006, so I worry this puts it out of warranty. The 360 is itself a bit dusty, and it has been very warm and humid in my apartment recently (just due to weather and lack of a/c), but I don't think that that's the culprit.

    Ideas/possible courses of action?

    I think they extended the warranty to 3 years so you are probably still covered. Sorry, seem's like I'm the only 360 owner around here who has yet to experience the full RROD horror :eek:

    I've owned my 360 since (about) November of 2006 and no RROD as of yet. Terribly unlucky for you OP.

    Call up MS and have 'em ship out a box. Or you could do the x clamp fix and void the remainder of your warranty.
