hi all,

my sons 360 has died again, well he has no picture, tried all the trouble shooting tips online etc, so i thought its best just to replace (ms wont repair, and had loads of issues etc) then getting a warranty , bit of advice tho please cos i know nowt...

can i just replace with a basic console and use existing hard drive? will arcade do? what bout memory, will it be a prob or is this on the HD?

how much is a good price for new? as im confused by varying prices?

also having trouble finding one not in a bundle?? help lol

thank you all xx

Hi there,
You can use your hard drive no problem. All your data is saved on there. Here http://www.xbox360-offers.co.uk/default.asp?view=byprice#xbox360_consoles Is a site that lists the best prices:thumbsup:

Lou to be honest if you buy the elite deal at the mo you'll prob have the best saving.
£199.99 with 2 games tiger woods 10 and fight night 4

Games are worth £50 quid easily and then you can also sell the elites 120GB hard drive.

If you sold the hard drive and 2 games on fs/ft section that you should be looking at about £90 50 for games 40 for hard drive.

thank you guys, having a look now for a good deal, yup just wanna do it the cheapest way using their HD, may sell it for spares, will see :) rep left

You would only need an arcade, you get a wireless controller, and a memory card, (built in one if latest type of motherboard inside), then you can just wire it all up, plug in your current HDD and away you go

I have a HDMI console spare, flashed with iX 1.6, but im not allowed to sell on here.. so cant help you im affraid..
#10
did you buy the console brand new, within the last 5 years (scotland) or 6 years (england & wales)?
just remember the sale of goods act covers you, just make sure you have proof of purchase.

remember to contact the retailer you purchased it from about the problem, they may want a fee to look at it (but may work out cheaper than buying a whole new console), or you can contact consumer advice if your still not happy. (as i have done) :thumbsup:

no, was a gift from his dad who bought from ebay :roll:

this is the reason im insisting its replaced new - then its covered
#12
Any game you or your son installed to hard drive from disc will need installing again .. like cod4 cod5 etc as it will not play from the hard drive on a new 360 whilst using the old hard rive from previous console

Also some xbox 360 XBLA games will stop working and revert back to being TRIAL games Sonic the hedgehog is one of these I forget the others the only way to get it working from your new hard drive will be to run the DRM license tool from M$ but you can only do that once a year.

Good to teach them the value of money, my 14 year old was desperate for an itouch but no way was i gonna buy him one so he saved his paperround and pocket money and bought it himself. He is actually looking after it better too!

thank you Gari, even at that price, its the cheapest i think, not sure i'll risk the codes with L rep, thank you!!
[helper]#22
I'm not really up to date with the prices on consoles but it was the cheapest I could find. If its the cheapest you've got nothing to lose by using the codes - the worst that can happen is that you pay £119 - good luck.

Pleasure to be of help :)

Don't forget cashback - Topcashback give you 8% for Very (formerly Littlewoods Direct) so do Quidco

If you don't use the codes(never had a problem myself), you can always phone them for confirmation.

They sent out a £10 one (ZQ606) as way of apology for introducing P&P charges, and then scrapping them.
