Default What causes the RRD on the Xbox 360?

My Xbox randomly has given me the RRD.
It's the older model of the 360, its white, I'm not sure what generation it is though.
Does anyone know what exactly causes it? Is it even fixable?

This should help Fix the Xbox 360's Red Ring of Death - All

If it it a red ring with the upper right quadrant unlit, it is caused by an overheating of the cpu causing the thermal paste to splatter onto the motherboard.

I remember the RROD days. What a fiasco. Thankfully the new consoles don't have any issues like that. I heard of a few people with optical drive issues on both consoles but it seems to be fairly uncommon.

As for your 360 idk if Microsoft even services them anymore. I assume they do so just give them a call and send it to their repair center. It's free and fixes the problem (or they give you a different machine)
