    yes if you have to enter serial in for RMA/ Service

    it's 3 years from purchase date which is obviously some time after manufacture date.
    Does he have the original receipt?

    It might be worth a call anyway, they can only say no.

    well his mum gave it to me today as he is in hospital with swine flu so i cant ask, do you need proof of purchase date or could i just lie ? :w00t:

    Unlucky. Both on the console and your mate.

    Try registering the console online anyway and see if you can send it for repair without charge? Wouldn't hurt right?

    What you could try to do is call Microsoft and explain to them that you got the console second hand and it Red Ringed on you - I know someone who did and they extended his warranty by a year and sent UPS to pick it up to be repaired - however this could just of course been an individual circumstance.

    What you could consider is having it repaired by a third-party store - I don't know of any but I'm sure there is something like that which exists.

    Good luck.

    this is what it says on there website after ive just registered

    Although your device may be out of warranty, it may still qualify for a no-cost repair if you are experiencing Three Flashing Red Lights or the E74 error message and are within three years of the original purchase date of the console.

    **NOTE**
    If you choose ‘Yes’ above, we will confirm that a general hardware failure associated with Three Flashing Lights or the E74 error message has occurred on your console upon receipt. If this cannot be confirmed, we may return the console to you unrepaired.

    if i send it off can they then try and bill me because i dont have any proof of purchase ??

    No they would not bill you ,they would just send it back unrepaired. Send it in it's worth a try i have bought an xbox before and the man date was 6 months prior to the date i purchased it,say this was the case with you. They can only say no.
