Oh noes..... xbox360 3 red lights!!!

I suppose I should have expected it at some point - but just came home from work to find the kids unable to play their games!

It's an unmodded xbox (I'm not a tight ass - I pay for my games - no theft in my house!!!)

The console is literally 3 years old. Am I right in thinking the warrenty extension for this fault is 3 years?

Any links on what's the best way to go? Do they insist on a receipt? (I havent a clue where mine is - though it is filed away somewhere - and it might just be a couple of weeks past 3 years!) Haha - a time bomb huh!

phone xbox support. they will help you and should tell you if it's in warranty.

3 red rings sucks but microsoft deal with it quite well.

Cool. Did they ask for a receipt and date of purchase? Is it likely I could get away with Saying March 06? (I'm fairly sure it was bought in Early February as it was bought in time for my littluns Birthday!)

When you give the serial number it will show them how long you have had it I think. I got mine from game, and when it got the rrod took it back and they swapped it over no questions asked, didn't even want to see a reciept!

Ta.... will give them a ring (and get the kids off my back!) Takes about a month doesn't it? Do they collect / pay for postage or did I dream that bit?

They arrange collection and re-delivery and they pay all postage costs, Ours had been back twice and both times took just under 2 weeks :)

Yeh.... good news all round! Do they repair or give a new one? (ie one that is less likely to red light?) hmm - Ok - looking at Bitseys reply - they don't!

They add new heatsinks etc, repalce the mobo.

Yeh, thought that would be the case. Shame, I'd like one with HDMI! :w00t:

Is there any value on a secondhand console without HDMI? I'd have thought it would be minimal. Havent even looked at current prices or know the differences between them. This one does have a hard drive though.

i couldnt have put up with all the carp on here TBH.....I have never bought or sold here, but have seen the pettiness that goes on so I took some advice from Sy and went elsewhere

Don't give up all hope of a replacement. I bought my brother a premium 360 and sent it back when it got the RROD and got back a new console with HDMI...............however, on the flipside, when my Elite got it they repaired it.

Seems to be a bit like a lucky dip.
