rrodXbox 360 owners seem to be facing a new round of the Red Ring of Death (RRoD).

If you haven’t heard of the RRoD before, consider yourself lucky.  It seems to be a phenomenon that mainly strikes the earlier generations of the console where three of the four green lights around the power button turn red, indicating an unrecoverable error has occurred.  The only option once this happens is to send the console back to Microsoft for repairs, and this can run you as much as $100 if you are out of warranty.

Earlier this week Microsoft sent out a firmware update to consoles that you were reuired to download before you could get to whatever game you were looking to play.  According to Mike Ferro of Gamer.BLORGE.com, reports are coming in that this is causing a whole new round of RRoD failures.  The problem had been diminishing more and more as of late, but the rate of reports seems to indicate that owners of the popular console still aren’t completely free of the issue.

If you are unfortunate enough to encounter this issue, you need to contact Xbox Support as soon as possible, and then be prepared to be without your console for several weeks while it ships to them, gets fixed and ships back to you.
