Whats the weirdest thing your xbox has ever done to you (besides give you the 3 rings)?

I'm asking this because I just turned off my xbox and the cooling fans didn't turn off. I was like wait, didn't I just turn you off. I'd have to say thats the weirdest thing.. What about you guys?...or girls :p

I shut my 360 off real fast since I had to leave for something, I forget what, and the drive didn't close. -.- Come to find out the eject button doesn't work for putting games back IN but it works for the tray coming out...which is mega lame.

Um, I would be playing and shut off my system as I always do via controller and I would hear the fans and system still running while the Green Ring on the system is off. Weird...

it slapped my ass.

NO JOKE

I was sitting there, playing guitar, not even facing my 360. When all of a sudden this bird comes in and starts chirping to my song. THEN my cat freaking comes in and is like "OMGWhaddufxup!!!" and like they start chillin then this bear comes, right? It's crazy! Alright, so like he starts breakdancing. Don't even ask, it was insane. After that, this jet liner came flying and landed right in my freaking STREET! The door opens up (YES it's like a Cottage house door like WTF) and out steps obama!?!? I'm like OBAMA!! And he's like YO MOMMA!! And we start laughing (pity laugh) and then like mccain comes in with a sword, right? So they start battling to the death and like obama picks up a man hole cover and throws it at mccain's head, mccain is to quick and dodges to the side, doing this AWESOME roll resorting in him kicking the plate at a light pole, SO hard in fact that it came crashing down on top of my neighbor's house, and the CHIMNEY COVER WENT AND SMACKED OBAMA!! Well, almost! ok then like darth vader came in with the DEATH STAR!? What?! it was mad insane. Then justin timberlake was there but we all booed him away and he started to cry and soak his tears in a plate of salt.

then my xbox totally slapped my ass.

it was crazy. as you can tell I'm bored.

But my xbox actually made this weird noise one time. Like I was sitting there and turned it off to go to bed and it's all BEEeMEE almost as if it was saying play me. crazy.

Not so much now, but when I first get my 360 back from HQ in Germany after being repaired, the drive button just wouldn't respond unless you hammered it for a good 5 minutes.

I used to have to stand there and continuously press the drive button until it responded. It doesn't do it often now, but every so often the button doesn't respond first time and opens on the second attempt.

Not long before my old 360 RRoD'd, when I used to knock it off, the fans used to carry on running. I had to knock my 360 back on THEN back off for them to stop... Then eventually it RRoD'd... :(

Weirdest I've ever had is my first 360's disc drive wouldn't open out of the box without some toggling with a pin with the faceplate off.

You smoke far too much weed.

The weirdest thing my Xbox has ever done was not listen to me. I could press buttons on it and it would do the opposite. I would press off it wouldn't listen and stay off. The guide button was apparently the start. It was just mad at me or something. :eek:

Yeh, my first box just turned on whenever it wanted to, never when I was sleeping I would be on my computer (x360a obviously) and it would just turn on and start up the game (that's the reason I got a new one)

Slamming your controller on the ground while playing Geometry Wars 2 will automatically give you that moving-screen-around effect.

and mine dont rly do that much odd stuff once the controller decided that it would spazz out and only half the buttons would do what i wanted...

Before my 360 got the red rings on the odd occasion it would just turn on, funny enough every time I was thinking about playing it would just turn on and I know it was not a controller begin turned on since both that connect to it where with me.

But now its either the tray button has to be pushed 2-3 times to close it and on odd occasions the drive will close just as I'm about to put the disk in.

Mine at one point in time for about 10 minutes was randomly turning its self on. I would turn it back off then it would turn its self on again.

Here it turned out that some of the people in my dorm room were sitting on my bed, and on my bed was my GH3 controller. So they were somehow hitting the guide button to turn it on.

My fully working Xbox refused to play any DVD film untill this last update, now it works fine.
My GhettoBox (Xbox in peices) wont work while stood upright, it wont boot a game without me pressing on the top of the DVD drive, the disk tray wont open without the DVD drive case being open.

Just sitting there playing Cod4 (my fave :))

My mate came in wearing his big clumsy motorbike trousers and booted the Xbox over onto it's side, but it didn't quite fall it sort of rested on the edge of the thing that it was next to!

The room fell deadly quiet! all eyes on the box...

It sat there for about 5 seconds looking very cross and then it went

RRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGSSSSCCRATTTTTCH!!

As if to say 'Have that you barbarians!'

With a haughty dignity the box allowed me to finish the game I was in ( giving rise to some hopeful speculation that all might be ok after all) before coolly requesting that I insert a game or DVD.

With palpable disdain it spat out Cod4 still spinning in the tray and boy had it done a job on it! Deep rings were etched into the surface. Deep spiteful rings! Worse than any I have ever seen.

That was me told. :|

Yeah mine makes its normal groan scrape noise when I exit to dash etc. ( I always exit by ejecting now)

But this one was something altogether more serious.
The disk was a Write off and I had to get a new copy.

also I swear my box makes little tiny beep noises from inside. only occaisionally.

The turning on problem happens to me sometimes. I blame the Wii, it gets a message and lights up blue so the xbox says "get stuffed hes playing with me" and turns on.

But as for the "cooling fans" and such not turning off when you tell the xbox to turn off is normal if the box is doing something that it can do whilst idle eg. downloading and such. Freaked me out the first time it did it until I figured out what was going on.

when i try to use my white controller when a friend is over, the battery pack wont work, even though its fully charged. i then have to put it on the charger for about 10 minutes or so for it to work:confused:

When I sent a message to a friend, then exit the dashboard thing. The little 'message sent' thing turned tiny and stayed there. I had to turn off the console for it to go away. The thing was small, like a quarter of the message thing.

My Xbox dosen't like alway play some sounds in game. In Halo 3 it didn't play speeches in cutscene and after it until I restarted console.

Also when I finally finished GTAIV I though that Rockstar did have some money problems because they didn't put music into credits... Then I watched some video from Youtube and guess what... It had music.

Oh, it is those older XBOXes that dosen't have HDMI port in back. They sell them in Finland with bundle games (Forza 2 and Viva Pinăta).

Your Xbox is the best Xbox in the world for that. :woop:

Anyway, one afternoon last week the power went out briefly. It was just enough to wake me up from the sound of all the electronic devices and fans shutting off, and then the power kicked back on and I went right back to sleep. When I woke up that night to go to work, I noticed my Xbox was now turned on. I had no idea why that happened, because I was sure I had turned it off before going to bed, and even if I hadn't, it should have been off because the power went out.

Did you possible leave a controller charging via the USB port? I've got a plug and play kit (with the USB charger) and if I turn the console off while the controller is still pugged into the console it does the same thing to me, but not if the controller isn't plugged in.

Other than that my HD DVD player always stays on a little longer than my xbox, and the screen comes up green occasionally. Oh yeah, and every now and then I get signed out and then back in for no reason. But other than that...
