    Xbox 360 with RROD

    Its that time again....

    My 360 has finally got RROD (after 3 years of problem free service) I have tried using the X-Clamps fix which worked for about 3 weeks now I cant get rid of the 3 lights. So to cut a long story short im looking for the best way to swap my console for a new one, obviously I have all my games, hard drive and controllers so all im looking for is the console itself or to get mine repaired.

    Does anyone have any tips because so far my 2 possible options are:

    1. Local repair guys charge £45 to reflow the motherboard
    2. Amazon are selling the arcade for £115

    Dont really want to have to spend that much so maybe there are so companies who swap RROD (+Cash) for new ones or something similar?

    Please no 'you should have bought a PS3/Wii/Megadrive' or suggesting xclamp fix as ive tried that.

    yeah opened voided warrenty. date was mid 2006.

    my old premium (non-hdmi) died last week - I was toying with the arcade too but have gone for this in the end.

    It's an elite with bioshock 2 & Mass Effect 2 for £190 - I've already got buyers for the 2 games at £30 each and I can sell some bits off my old xbox - faulty xbox\psu\wireless controller

    All in should have upgraded to a 360 elite for around £100 (if you take out an amazon CC you also get £15 off and interest free credit for 12 months but I've not done this)

    I don't know what that method involves so wasn't sure if MS could tell. Do MS actually look at them if they have RROD or just chuck them on a pile and send you a new one? We are on or 3rd 360 now!

    get rid of the x-clamp fix and go back to how it was, then order ebay item 220553522784 and your sorted
