Why would you do that, just tell it doesn't work. Wal-Mart won't go and test it. They check if everything is in it and voila.

How can people take your seriously when you are writing like that

Hmm.. I don't understand what your trying to say.. but Chos3n is right, if you use the towel trick, it will work.. for a day or two. My RRoD came back in 20 min.

EDIT: Is walmart really that.. umm.. stupid? From what I read, your saying that I can return my Ipod and get a refund for it? Because I really want to sell it. (BTW, I bought it at the Apple store in Vegas.)

Well, coz im like 35, and i bought a 360 system. And im my younger days, it was UNETHICAL to sell peices of junk like that. But times have chaged in the last 15 years. So here I am, yanking frekin stickers, or modding my 360 coz NO ONE, and I mean NO store manager will refund or exchange anymore. THey are spending all day on the pone with microshaft over broken down dvd players, or over heating issues. So, I took it in my own hands. IT is basically a really cheap CPU, MOBO, and player. Oh yea, and a crummy ATI card. So there, find out the hardware, and assess if its turned into a door stopper, or fix it yourselves, like your PC, and if your PC is anything like mine, its like 7X more expensive LooL. And I fix it no probs.

Unfortunatly, they return it every Wal-Mart in Canada only. But again, if you press you could get it saying that you are a tourist...etc . But Apple released a new policy (for Wal-Mart Only) for their iPods, they are final sales, and can only be exchanged at Apple. Again, if you press them saying no one explained you this and that policy isn't written anywhere.

If you bought it in an Apple store, it will be hard to return it... you will need to really press on them and make the store manager angry at you and he will say fine! Like I said, I saw it in front of my eyes, but will it work elsewhere? That need to be tested

"Towel trick" provides temporary fix to Xbox 360's red ring of doom? - Engadget

The blanket trick is temporary, and not permanent.

Are you really 35?


For the best fix DIY, X-Clamp is the way to go
