Xbox 360 death

Its finally happened, the 360 has decided that it cant read xbox 360 games. No RROD so am I correct that Microsoft will charge for repair? I got it the summer after it was released so its a good age now. Would anyone know the repair costs?

Is it an Arcade?

I had an Arcade that just stopped reading discs but luckily as I had got it from a specialist gaming shop only three months before so they just plugged it to prove it could not play discs then gave me back my money (no Arcades left).

you could just buy a new dvd drive for it...(you'd have to open your 360 tho..)
#5
OR you could stick a spoon in the 2 fans at the back and then turn it on and see how long it takes before it RROD's?

If it's RROD yes, anything else, no

A few choices,, your laser has died,,
pay MS 60 odd quid to fix it,
Buy a new arcade and get HDMI and better designed Xbox e.g. less likely to red ring
Pay £10 for a new laser fit it yourself and even mod it while your at it if you fancy it being able to play back ups of your owned games
Call MS bluff say it red ringing intermittently and you want it repaired,, chances are you wont get same Xbox back so problem solved.

The choice my friend is yours but those are your options.

Good luck and happy gaming

yes, commiserations my elite died last night in the middle of fallout3 just one year old. My problem was the screen would freeze after a couple of minutes i tried it again and the same thing happened, only sooner and sooner each time i tried. Phoned microsoft, its £60 because my warranty has (only)just run out! and no red rings for me only one on the power pack.
