    Sending Xbox back to MS for repair: What happens if...

    they decide they arent going to do a free repair?

    I have my broken box that flashed e73 errors, periodically 3 red lights, now 4 lights and completely dead. I was thinking about sending it to MS to see if i can get it fixed (its still with the 3 yr extended waranty)

    So what happens if they say no to a free repair, do they just send it back?

    they will fix it as long as it is not tampered with

    just keep saying intermittent 3 red lights

    they will ask for the serial number and it will flag up as banned if it has been flashed. If it's not flashed they will repair it so long as it's 3rrod.
    They did with mine, anyway.

    it is not banned just broken :P

    If they don't want to fix it they just send it back, I've never seen any reports of them trying to contact u to see if u want to pay..

    Should have no problems then. Like someone said, tell them its 3RROD, they more than likely just swap it out for another one.

    Seeing as the place in Germany they send all repairs shuts down for two weeks December they will be back at work knee deep in faulty xbox. if you send it back any time up until the middle of Jan I would expect them to just give it a quick once over and send out a refurb.
