I woke up this morning to be greeted by the dreaded sight of a red light. Playing Eternal Sonata the night before, I had no problems and not even a hint of any hardware problems. Yet today, i’m faced with the challenge of trying tinker with this myself, or perhaps sending it off for repairs.
I’ve tried taking all of the cables, accessories and hard drive off and then reconnecting them. I also left the console unconnected on a fairly cool kitchen work surface just to see if it was perhaps temporarily overheating. All to no avail. Is there anything else (safe, not modding) that I can try before I get on the phone to Microsoft support?
