Hi guys

My xbox has just developed the 3 RROD. Now, I was given the xbox as gift in March last year but it does have a manufactures date of 2007-07-12, meaning its still within the 3 years for MS to fix?

Where does one go from here? Will MS fix or just replace?

Cheers in advance.

Standard warranty is only one year, that's why :thumbsup: But you get three years for RROD.

I haven't got a clue sorry..... I haven't owned an XBox for about 2 1/2 years, and never experienced any problems with either of mine before selling them :)

I don't know how they do it now but whenever my bros xbox used to break, they used to send him the box via courier, then they'd arrange another day for it to be collected...which is stupid in my opinion.

I think they now send the box and you quickly have to pack it infront of the courier but I'm sure they'll advise you over the phone. :thumbsup:

You dont get a box now, I sent mine back on Friday and it is on its way back after a repair/replace. Hope its a replacement as mine didn't have hdmi socket.

doesn't it give specific collection details, service request no etc when you log in on M$ site?

When mine bust last year I took it myself to UPS at Team Valley (wrapped up in carboard box & some polystyrene ) saved waiting in for a collection. Sent to Germany for repair, back within 2 weeks.

Did you send a HDMI version. If you did complain.

I've done this recently and took about 4-5 days I think.

You have to wrap the box safely up yourself.
