Sometimes Elite 3/4 Red Ring. Problem?
 
Sometimes when I turn on my 360 Elite I get 3/4 red 1/4 green ring. Is that normal?

I saw some multi language "system error" message. I restarted and all went well. Should I be concerned. The thing is only 6 months old.

Call MS for a RMA, looks like you have a loose chip or something.

Seriously? You've seen red rings before? I just want to know if this is normal.

I got pretty scared when I saw those red rings.

I'll only RMA it if it fails or if it's close to warranty expiration.

Check the secondary Error Code per the instructions in the section below

THINGS TO TRY

1. Try restarting the console.
2. If restarting the console does not resolve the behavior, follow these steps:
* Turn the console off.
* Unplug all the power and AV cables from the console.
* Unplug the power cord from the wall socket.
* Firmly reconnect all the cables.
* Turn on the console.
3. If these steps do not resolve the behavior, turn the console off, remove the hard drive, and then turn on the console. If the 3x Red LED error light is no longer displayed, turn the console off, re-attach the hard drive, and then turn on the console.
4. Also examine the lights on the power supply. When you turn on the console, the power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the RoL flash red.

If they're flashing it's not normal. If not, then it's probably fine.
