After my triumphant victory over the red ring of death last month, I had been feeling pretty good about my ability to fix broken tech. Not only had I mended my old CD player but I’d now brought an Xbox back from the grave.
Buoyant from these successes, I then went about taking my washing machine apart in order to replace the perished door seal. I was invincible!
Sadly, my geek-pride was about to take a bashing. My Xbox promptly died again. Red ring of death and everything. Try as I might, I couldn’t resurrect it again. I was beaten.
However, not to be completely thrown by my apparent failure, I used this as an opportunity to buy a shiny new Xbox 360 Slim. Every cloud has a silver lining I guess.
I’m still waiting to find out if the washing machine repair fares any better…
