My sons xbox is 2 years old and has developed the red rings of death symptoms.

is it the 3 red lights?

If its 3 red lights or the screen displays the error code E74 then microsoft will fix it free of charge up to 3 years after the manufacture date..

On a side note and kind of thread jacking here, but what do you reckon my chances of getting my console fixed are under 3 red lights as it just flashes all 4 and doesn't turn on? is it worth a go?

go to xbox.com and get your son to login and then click on the service and repair it'll tell you if its warrenty or no, if its only 2 years old it will still be under warrenty for the three red lights

Very sure.

Check the date on the back of the console, if its under 3 years old MS will repair it free of charge or send you out a refurb.

Dont send the hard drive make sure you kep that.

If the machine is registered, just go to Xbox website, go to service and it will talk you through the process of getting it fixed.

Red ring guarantee is def 3 years.
(Microsoft know that the 360 has an underlying issue)

unfortunatly, you're past the cut off date for Xmas return!
(they have to go to germany to get fixed)

They usually do it anyway aslong as the seal is intact.

You just need to send the console itself.

warranty info doesnt matter, its a global extended 3 year from manufacture date warranty to cover the 3 red light issue. if its not registered on xbox.com register it. It will tell you its out of the 1 yr waranty but still available for the 3 year extended..

I also believe that when you are on xbox live it gets registered.

It will be 3 years from the date on the back or 3 years from date of receipt if you still have it.
