try registering it online on xbox.com, once registered it will tell you how long the warranty is for

Yeah, i thought you get your old warranty, but if you paid for the repair they give you 12 months.
#7
I originally had 4 months left. They have extended it......but only up to 6 months.

Put the serial no. in on the website to register a new devive and it should tell you whats left on the warranty.

D'oh too slow.:roll:

If it's a brand new machine, rather than replacing it, then you should get a brand new warranty with it, no? Thats how it works elsewhere.

it tells you on the back of the xbox when it was manufactured so it would be 3 years from manufacture date......wouldnt it?

Don't think so. If that was the case they could end up replacing something forever.
If an item is guaranteed for say 2 years, most places will repair/replace it until the 2 years is up. After that you'll be on your own. There are exceptions like the 360 scenario where they have extended it to 3 years due to the rrod problem, although I'm certain that they don't renew the warranty with each new replacement console.

That's the whole point of a warranty! If it breaks inside the warranty time then it will be fixed for free under the warranty. If they have to replace the unit then you should get a new warranty as well.

I got a Samsung fridge/freezer replaced under warranty a few weeks ago, and got a brand new warranty with it (because it was a new fridge/freezer.) Why should you not get a new warranty on a new piece of kit?

as ive said its 3 years from the manufacture date on the rear of the console.......

You're wrong. So if this new one fails in 2 years they'll replace it, and then if that fails 2 years later they'll replace that and so on, so that in effect he'll have had a 360 under warranty for 6 years?
Dream on.

If you had standard warranty left they add 3 months on to it.
If you were out of warranty you have 3 months now etc
