Yea, I phoned today. Id have to pay £60 for the repair becasue I brought it second hand a couple of years back and it was registered by the previous owner. :x

£60 for a repair is cheaper than a second hand 360. Plus it would have warranty
#5
If it is within 3 years of manufacturing date on the serial, and security labels are in tact then it should not matter that it has been registered previously, I got mine done without any problem and did not have a eciept, worth another try, just ask for it to be registered to you fis, and if need be call back a couple of days later, good luck
#6
or you could just wait a week and get yourself an elite for £259 a pro for £200 or a core/arcade for £159

yeah prices are coming down as of next week

thanks for the info guys, i thought about the repair but i didnt want to give microsoft £60 when they should be fixing it for free.

Yea i may try and phone them again, hopefully get a different person, i was told that i needed the permission of the person that registered it originally in order to get it sorted, i have no idea who that is, lol.

My mate had a problem with his 360 today and microsoft told him that they would get in contact with the previous owner for him.

I dunno why your having such a problem.
They got back in contact with my mate today and told him that the console was now registered to him and he could send it back to them for a repair.

Me neither, i thought i was getting somewhere at first, he went throught the process of re-registering the console to me (which didnt happen before) and then he said right thats done, that will be £60 for the repair :x

Well the 3 red light problem is guaranteed for 3 years as you know and no xbox is older than 3 years so they shouldnt be charging you a penny.

So what are the options if you have 3 red rings and the xbox has been flashed.
Surely you cant send that back to MS. Is repair viable or shall i just buy a new console and get that flashed.

Its 50/50, I know people who have had them fixed and also people who have been turned down.

by the way if anyone runs into this problem i did find a way round to fix for free. I phoned up again and the guy re-registered the console to myself, but still wanted to charge me the £60! I said no and then went onto the microsoft website, as the console was now registered to me it let me order the repair for free online :-D
