i heard it from a friend saying that the red rings of doom is caused by the heat sink being improperly moved away from the motherboard or something of the like and then you have a limited amount of time to get it fixed...its pretty much a ticking time bomb...but hey, microsoft is rich and therefore, get a new one but keep your hard drive (HDD)

TELL YOUR FRIEND TO CHECK THE LEADS THAT GO IN TO THE 360 (sorry for caps it was important). My friend got the RRoD. But thre are different problems why the rings turn red. If a cable has sliped out or isnt in properly, your 360 will display a red ring. THI IS VITAL, go and check! NOW! If all the cables are snuggly in place, search google. if not....

Didn't microsoft just extend the warrenty on rrod problems to 3 years? Anybody with the problem should look it up. You'd need to send your 360 away for repair/replacement but its better than just letting it be broken.
