Microsoft is the leading company when it comes to softwares, but it seems that Microsoft is having a lot of trouble when it comes to gaming consoles. We all remember the infamous plague on the Xbox 360 that is called Red Ring of Death. Users all over the world were happy to hear that new Xbox 360 Slim won’t have the same problem but they were astounded to find out that Microsoft has removed most of the red LEDs from the front of the new Xbox in order to deal with the Red Ring of Death.
Microsoft seems to have strange sense of humor but I don’t see that users are laughing. So according to the Microsoft new Xbox 360 Slim won’t have any red lights on it, but Microsoft didn’t say anything about red lights on the power brick. Believe it or not, there’s a video on a YouTube that shows disappointed user with his newly purchased Xbox 360 Slim. According to the video, Xbox 360 Slim was purchased two days ago and it has already suffered technical problems. Microsoft was right on this one, there aren’t Red Rings or red lights on the new Xbox 360, but Microsoft didn’t mention anything about the power brick.
Red Ring is caused by hardware failure and it can be fixed if you take your Xbox to the repair shop, but what to do if your power brick is giving you red light? According to the tech support, you should detach all the cables from your console and attach them again, but that didn’t work for some reason, so only solution might be to take the power brick to the repair shop or buy a new one.
I don’t know what is Microsoft doing with this one, but it seems that they have a lot of red light issues on their consoles so maybe they should stick to the software and computers. Anyhow, we’re hoping that Microsoft will fix their consoles soon before it’s too late.
