    Xbox 360 death

    Its finally happened, the 360 has decided that it cant read xbox 360 games. No RROD so am I correct that Microsoft will charge for repair? I got it the summer after it was released so its a good age now. Would anyone know the repair costs?

    i wouldnt pay for the repair just buy a new 1 you can get them for around £100 with hdmi and some1 wil buy the old 1 of ya on fleabay...........

    At last...

    Is it an Arcade?

    I had an Arcade that just stopped reading discs but luckily as I had got it from a specialist gaming shop only three months before so they just plugged it to prove it could not play discs then gave me back my money (no Arcades left).

    you could just buy a new dvd drive for it...(you'd have to open your 360 tho..)

    OR you could stick a spoon in the 2 fans at the back and then turn it on and see how long it takes before it RROD's?

    its 60 quid all in from ms. as of 5 days ago.

    does this mean that theres absolutly no cases now where microsoft will fix the xbox free of charge?

    If it's RROD yes, anything else, no

    A few choices,, your laser has died,,
    pay MS 60 odd quid to fix it,
    Buy a new arcade and get HDMI and better designed Xbox e.g. less likely to red ring
    Pay £10 for a new laser fit it yourself and even mod it while your at it if you fancy it being able to play back ups of your owned games
    Call MS bluff say it red ringing intermittently and you want it repaired,, chances are you wont get same Xbox back so problem solved.

    The choice my friend is yours but those are your options.

    Good luck and happy gaming

    I would phone m$ too saying it is freezing and then intermittently rrod
    thay are replacing at the moment and not repairing
    problem solved

    yes, commiserations my elite died last night in the middle of fallout3 just one year old. My problem was the screen would freeze after a couple of minutes i tried it again and the same thing happened, only sooner and sooner each time i tried. Phoned microsoft, its £60 because my warranty has (only)just run out! and no red rings for me only one on the power pack.
