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

That's sort of the great thing about the 360.. if you get any error, fry it, force the RROD, then get it repaired free. :D. Okay, that's not a good thing that it breaks this much, but still, it's nice to be able to get it fixed free.

I live in Ottawa, Ontario. I got my RROD a month ago, and 6 days after I made my call, I got my Xbox back. That includes waiting for the Coffin. So the wait wasn't that long, at least not here. I was expecting 6 weeks since I live in Canada, but nope, just 6 days.

Maybe the other two lights broke in the ring, and that gave you 1 light oh and mine has been gone for like 8 days now

I'm fairly certain the repair centre is in Mississauga, ON right next to TO so that might be a bit of a wait out in Winnipeg.
