My son's xbox console has gone up the shoot this week! Three months out of the warrenty! typical as it happened like that last time as well!

So what do I do? pay microsoft eighty something pound to repair it? Have been offered another by a friend for £70 which has 6o whatever it is harddrive. Get someone to try to mend it for £20. Or do I Wait and get him the neW xbox 360 that's coming out, Yes I know all you gamers would like one of them! But really a few opinions would be helpful as i really no nothing abut them. Thanks in advance

Fix yourself, xclamp repair. Buy a kit off ebay for a few quid and do it yourself. If you're not confident pay the £20 for someone to do it.

If you are feeling flush then go for the new 360 model though.

I have heard of people who accidently get their towel wrapped round their xbox and low and behold a red ring appears which is covered under a 3year MS warranty

the 3 red rings gets you THREE years of warranty cover. It was extended by Microsoft a while back because of everyone complaining. It is retrospective as well, so if you've had it 2 years and 3 months and bought it new, I see no reason why it wouldn't be covered. Call Microsoft support and they should do it free :thumbsup:

If your interested I'll buy it off you as is...send us a message if your interested

I had the same phone call with Microsoft. Just complain then you get it fixed for free outside of warranty.
#10
I just register them online and see if the warranty RROD will cover it. Usually does.

Forget an xclamp fix they are useless. A reball will probably cost about £50, but should last alot longer if leaded solder balls are used

Towel trick is useless also. those sort of fixes just last days.
