Xbox 360 problem

Has anyone ever had the screen randomly flash red/green? It's not my TV because I went back to the dashboard and it was still distorting my colors. From what I've read a red light and a $100 repair bill is soon to come.

I just started a thread this morning under "XBox 360 info" in this forum. I think you'll find it helpful...

Well this is my third 360 (RRoD) and this is a problem I have never seen. It's been going on for a few weeks so hopefully I get the RRoD. What I was saying though is that most people with this problem, from what I've read, only had 1 red portion so they had to pay for the repair.

I gotcha. Good luck with it. I can tell we're calling India or Pakistan, but at least they were nice.

Thanks. You just have to make them repeat what they're saying a few times but overall I had no problem with returning mine.

So it finally red lighted (thankfully the RRoD) so that's 3 360's that have died on me.
