This is the second time I'm getting this!
I got this error after applying an update. Upon restarting, the Red Ring reared it's head.
This set is actually a replacement for my first set with the Red Ring of Death. First replacement was within 3 yrs pf purchase so it was free.
I highly suspect it's already past the warranty for RROD errors.
That's what you get for being away from home and not touching your console for 6 months!
I've got too many xbox 360 games to switch to a PS3 now.
Oh well I'll contact Microsoft and see how much I've got to pay to get a replacement.
