The way the console is acting makes it sound like it is bricked. (The console's firmware is corrupt) Do you keep the console near a large speaker or subwoofer (The magnetism from the speakers can damage the console, and cause a "brick") It isn't possible to fix a bricked console, so I would consider buying a RROD Fix Kit and install that, because there is always the possibility that I'm wrong, and you're just experiencing a precursor to the red ring of death.

Actually it does sit next to a 12" sub for my soround sound. Crap. I didnt know about that. I had been wanting to get the MW3 console. Looks like I may have an excuse now.


Large subs/speakers can mess up electronics. If you wanna take a shot at fixing it, you could try the repair kit (Which might fix it, and save you some money)
