Our Falcon Xbox 360 got hit with the 3 Red Lights of Death.

Our US Falcon Xbox 360 Arcade got hit by the 3 Red Lights of Death, error code 0020

Manufacturing date: April 2, 2008

It looks like no one is safe, sad to say.


No airconditioning because it's been affecting our electric bill, however the console is in a well ventilated area.

The console is raised with rubber stoppers.

I just moved some profiles from my memory card to my HDD and then when I restarted the console it was already 3RL. I couldn't start it anymore after that.

Oh well, so much for Falcons being 3RL free....

Note: We have a second Xbox 360 from servo101 which is a replacement Asian Xbox 360 console, manufacturing date July 19, 2008. I guess we're just lucky that we have this one....but I can imagine others won't be this lucky. 3RL is extremely frustrating. I hate it and this pisses me off!

  1. wow that's a ton of crazy bad luck there, what are room temperatures (max/min) like in phillipines?
    was the console on vertical or horizontal position? did you put it in a cabinet? a small enclosure? or on the carpet? how many hours do you leave it on per session? Let's hope that all you need to repair are the x-clamps.

    mine says manufacturing date aug 2006, has gone through one ownership before, has completed 10 games (excluding xbla) and still works like a charm, I must be dreaming, or it is one of the longest ticking time-bomb I ever acquired.
