I turned on my XBOX 360 tonight and was met with a blank screen and 3 red lights around the power button. I found a web page that describes what to do to fix it. I was a little skeptical about picking up the console and smacking it though. I noticed a comment on that page talking about hard drive “stiction” and remembered my days as a PC tech “fixing” old IBM PS/2 machines by removing the hard drive and smacking it with the palm of my hand. So, I removed the hard drive from the console and tried powering it up. It worked fine. So I smacked the drive a couple of times and reattached it to the console. I powered it up again it it worked fine. I hope this is a one time deal!
