    So me and brother bought a new 360 around three weeks ago because the other one wasn't working, and we've been playing it no problem since we bought the console. But yesterday I come home and the red light of doom shows up, any ideas on what the problem could be?

    Um, first thing to check is the video cables. It'll give you the rrod if the video cable isn't plugged into the back properly. Only three weeks ago? Did someone drop I maybe? I've never heard of that happening so fast.

    No one as dropped the console, and I myself was surprised and pretty mad that the red light came on after only having it for three weeks. I’ll check the cables when I go home tonight once again, I really hope that’s the case because I don’t want to send it to get it fixed.

    I have had my xbox red ring error 3 times. One time they gave me a new xbox and within 2 weeks I got the error again.

    It is not unheard of. Take it to the store before the 30 day return policy expires.

    If not go to and file a repair. It is quite simple these days.
