My Xbox 360 (S)lim was working perfectly this morning. I turned it off around 9am today, and when I turned it on around 12pm I got the Red Dot (NOT RING, it's a Slim) of Death. Mind you I've done some researching today and before anyone jumps to conclusions, no, I do not have a removable hard drive to take out and put back in, it's the 4gb hard drive model.
Now, looking at my power cord brick, before I boot it, its orange. Once I press the power button on the console, the brick light changes to green. I tried several different outlets in my home, and the same thing happens at each outlet - red dot on console, green light on brick. I think it's also relevant to mention that it's a solid red light, it's not blinking.
I've also made sure everything was unplugged from the console, and have been letting it sit in a well ventilated area for several hours now.
So now, unless I'm overlooking something, it looks like I'm stuck sending it in for repair. Thankfully, yes it's still under warranty. Does anyone have any other ideas on what it could be or possible solutions?
