Just curious if any of you guys got any red light issues on your 360 that seemed to be isolated or if I am on the road to MS service soon. (I do have the extended warranty)
I had a few lockup issues when I first got my 360 with Burnout (no red lights) and I found info that recommended plugging your 360 into a good power source. I have had mine plugged into a UPS since then. It's on an open air shelf under my tv so I don't think overheating is involved. It's been fine with no issues until yesterday.
I was near the end of Condemned and the system shut itself off and I had three red lights. The UPS also beeped for a split sec like there was a power issue. It is supposed to have voltage regulation so who knows what happened.
It took a minute to get it restarted, but it was fine for the rest of the night. I was just curious if it may have been a power issue or just an isolated glitch...or if it is a sign of things to come.
Probably just a glitch - same thing happened to me a few weeks back. A thunderstorm knocked off the power for a split second, the UPS kicked in, and I got the three lights of doom. I shut it down and restarted, haven't had a problem since.
