Just had my 360 die on me today with the 3 red lights (all except the top right) which as I understand it is a general hardware failure. The manufactueres date for this console is 10-11-2006 so is out of the 12 month warranty from Game where it was bought. This is actually my 3rd console that has died on me. First had the 4 red lights, Game swapped no problem, 2nd console had the drive fail on me and again they swapped no problem but this was within 12months of purchase. Anybody know whether micro$oft are repairing consoles after the 12months without charge as I thought I heard a few months back that they had extended the warranty (this might have been just for the 4 red lights error-not sure).
Failing that, what are my options?
Would I be best off selling the console on here or ebay and getting a new one, paying micro$oft to repair (however much that will be) or is there anybody on here that can fix this problem?- Have seen a couple of sellers on ebay claiming to be able to fix it without a problem but does say they will refund you if they cant fix it-only worry is then that I'd be stuck with a console which I assume micro$oft wouldnt touch as it had been opened?
Any help/suggestions much appreciated
