    1 day old xbox - FAULT already?

    Can anyone explain why on earth my one day old xbox 360 has just stopped displaying the front panel lights. Ive got no power light nor the green flashing lights. I know its not really a big problem but what if in future the box has a hardware fault and I cant identify the problem with the flashing light method?

    Is it just me or should I send it back?

    I'm confused.... What's the date of manufacture on the back?

    You should get 3 years from that date (give or take a few months) but if yours is up soon or is showing something different when you register it with xbox.com then clearly there's something fishy going on?

    Gotta say everything with the console looks legit, no signs of tampering and the original MS sticker is intact so gord knows whats going on?

    probably been sitting around for too long, send it back and ask them why you've received a console that is so old, ask them if they'll exchange it for a newer console. if not, send it to microsoft and you'll probably get a newer console back.

    Forget it...

    EDIT : Been up all night with the wife and clearly can't count... 18 months old, I'd still want a newer one or want want MS to confirm that they'll cover me till 2013. :thumbsup:
