I'd appreciate any help on the matter...basically I bought a 20gb version off a mate a few months back...just now I've got the dreaded ring of death.

My question is; what is microsoft's repair policy - ie the console is a few yrs old and I have none of the paperwork to prove ownership? Do I have a leg to stand on...I believe it's one of the first versions where this was common.

Any help would be appreciated - I just can't bare the thought of having to spend time with the relatives this xmas :(

I thought as this problem was identified as a manufacturing fault your system was covered regardless of the purchase date.

They extended the warranty for the red ring of death to 3 years. Any other fault is covered for 1 year. But as mentioned previously, either ring up the xbox helpline or register your console online. They'll be able to tell you if you can get it fixed for free. You won't need proof of purchase either. :thumbsup:

If it doesnt work for you, just get your mate to send it off. If its the 3rrod then it should still be covered, unless your mate bought it when it first came out.
#10
should still be covered even if he had it when it first came out ,, hasnt it been out for just over 2 years now???
#11
pretty sure the 360 hasnt been out for 3 years yet so all of 'em are still under the 3 rrod 3 year warranty,
I think?
#12
cheers guys! really appreciate the advice, will put up any new info if i get any from them
nikkit72 - a freephone number?!?! Awesome!
#13
360 came out in 2005. Its been 3 years.
#14
had mine for 3 years and no RRoD yet
#15
Christmas day, Red ring of death, can you believe it!?

No real warnings unlike the last time it screwed up. Ive had it for over 18 months, what are the chances that Currys will replace it for a second time? I still have the receipt etc.
