well if you have RROD on the first day, take it back to the place/guy you bought it from.....

otherwise, look into RROD fixes which should give you a working xbox for anywhere between a month and 6 months and it only costs about $6 for the parts to do it. There's a million threads on this so i'm not going to re-state how to do it.

or if you're lucky, It hasnt been opened and is less than 3 years old, then MS will take it

EDIT: bit it looks like the guy did a poor RROD fix on it and just booted up to check if it was working, then put it up for sale.

I've fixed a few xboxes and tested them for a few hours before deeming them "fixed" .............only to have the same people come back to me 3-4 months later saying they broke again.

RRoD is covered for three years by Microsoft.

Where di you get it from?

ALWAYS test electronics first when buying used.

I bought my 360 used at two months later I got a E74 error which is basically the same thing as a RRoD and Microsoft covered it.

nope , FW mods will get you banned but this is just simply applying a stress to the hardware to re-connect some loose connections, hardly something MS can detect

Did you buy it of an independent person? or from a shop used..?

Im always wary about buying from people sadly nobody is honest these days i say try get your money back very unlikely even if you fix it its going to be a reliable system best just to buy one straight out and be done with it obviously if he does'nt give your money back then a fix is worth the try but again not reliable i would have taken it back seconds after if i saw that
