This is my bulls#!t experience with the Xbox360, first it got one flashing red light, i called MS and they told me that i my 360 was of of warranty(no 3 year warranty for one red flashing light) so it couldn't be repaired. So i called my local game shop and ask for advice and they told me to wrap it in a towel and let it fry. So I did, but it didn't fry it started to work for about week, then i got the 3rod so i called Microsoft and the sent me my coffin. so if you get one flashing red light wrap it in a towel to get the 3rods of death so you can get it repaired.
Also i mailed my xbox360 a couple of days ago and it made it to the repair centre in canada my question is how long do i have to wait? Also i live in winnipeg
