Xbox 360 rings of deaths

Well, it seems my xbox won't work anymore. I've read bits and pieces on the internet and i know that there is a 3 year warranty for the rings of deaths, however I'm not sure as to what to do, as all the information seems to be for the USA.

Also, i don't have a receipt for it, it was paid for by my ex girlfriend from the Toys'r'us deal that was going around about this time last year. Is this going to be much of a problem?

I'd really like to know what people did when they had these problems

nope as long as the seal is intact
ms will know if its under 3 year old
#2
how do i go about contacting them and arranging repairs? Where is the seal located? i couldn't find it
#3
dont the newish 360s have a date on the back of them?

Dont panic,
Go on the Xbox website, where they have the phone number.
Just give them a call - they'll get you to carry out some simple diagnostic tests, and if this doesn't work, they'll arrange to collect it and fix it for you. Dont wory if you dont have the reciept, they wont ask for it. If you have used Xbox live, there'll see that you have registered it at a set date anyrway.
It usually takes a couple of weeks to get it back, but microsoft are pretty good, and will almost certainly fix it regardless.

well all xbox 360's are still under the 3 yr warranty as the xbox 360 was only released in dec 05. as long as the 360 was bought new and you haven't tried to open it then the seal will still be intact.

no problem, had the ring of death myself earlier in the year, but was lucky that I could take it back to the shop where I got it from.

i've had games scratched by my xbox, can i request that they fix the problem that causes that too?
#11
I don't think you get your 360 back - you get another one that had been sent back and has been refurbished.... i think anyways......
#12
i might put that to the test, put a distinctive mark and see if i get my own back
