I was just about ready to send in my Xbox in for repairs when I decided to turn the Xbox on and leave it on for 20 minutes. As expected, the RRoD appeared and the Xbox title didn’t pop up – nothing different than usual. Then I waited 20 minutes to let it warm up, turned it off, and somehow wasn’t surprised to see the Xbox start up normally again. To make sure it wasn’t a fluke, I tried it the day after and it worked as long as I made sure I let it warm up first (otherwise I got a RRoD like usual or at least a freeze). So try it – but I’d recommend cleaning out the vents first. Also, don’t put it on the table vertically as it could make the components slide off the motherboard.
