    So they fixed my RROD......

    So after I got the RROD last week and convinced mircrosoft to fix it even though it was out of warranty I got my xbox back today. Got to say it was a speedy turnaround seeing it went all the way to Germany.

    Did notice that the Xbox they sent back to me wasnt the one I sent, even though they replaced the facia. Think its a used one, online it says the warranty expires in Feb 2010 - I thought if they fixed it you automatically got another year's warranty?

    Glad it came back quickly, mine's being picked up before 6pm tonight, want it back before i finish work on the 18th!!!

    3 month warranty when they come back im afraid

    How did you get them to fix it for you if it's out of warrenty? Mine expires (3 years) in 2 weeks, and as I'm not a heavy gamer, I am concerned that I will one day get the dreaded RROD

    Did mine in under 7 days even tho it was out of warrenty!!!

    mine was a good 8 months out of warranty. Kicked off when they said they wanted £90 to fix it. Told them that my gf had bought it off ebay in 2007 for me and emailed them proof that she had. Also told them that I'd just renewed my gold membership and bought a load of games (which i had).

    Told them that if they expected me to pay that fee that I would rather go out and buy a PS3

    sent off my elite after my mw2 console came, the drive was failing so thought i should get it fixed even though it wont be used. received a brand new one 5 days later.

    So if they send a different one back is it likely to be newer or older?

    Presume they send like for like, ie won't send me a non HDMI one?

    the mfr date of the one i sent off was oct 2008, the one i received back was nov 2009. sent off an elite and had an elite back, they wont send you a different kind of console so no worries there and it'll probably be a newer refurb console or if you're lucky a brand new one like i got.
