    So after a few days of gaming paradise the RROD reappear :(

    So the dreaded 3 RROD have reappeared. Gutted. Registered the device on Xbox.com and it says the warranty expired on the 7/29/2008 8:00:00 PM.

    Clearly the warranty is well out but my gf got it for me from Ebay at Xmas 2007. What should I do next? If I send it off to microsoft how much do they usually charge for them to be repaired?

    Any help would be much appreciated

    2009 ? you mean 2006 ?

    if it was purchased xmas 2007 then just ring MS and tell them that you brought it new for xmas 2007 because the warrenty is from purchase not mfr. they will replace it for you.

    yeah I meant 2006,

    gona ring them now....

    they repaired ours for free and took 4 days, we got a brand new console. I think it was about 2.5 years old. We had to drop it off at the nearest ups courier though which wasn't too bad about 9 miles, i can't remember why though that we had to drop it off.

    just rang and the women I spoke to was terrible! Could barely understand what she was saying and when I told her about the warranty statement she just advised to go through the website to request a repair

    Just rang and had to kick up a fuss!! They were saying it made no difference and that the warranty had expired blah blah. Threatened to buy a PS3 instead with the £80 repair fee towards it and they said they'll wave it if I can prove date of purchase so have to find that paypal receipt!
