They were very nice to me actually.
Free postage, free new Xbox and no problems since.

Darn that red ring of death. Oh, and don't do any of the YouTube methods of saving your XBox. If they work, they only do for half an hour and if they don't, you kill your hard-drive.

Yes. I sent it off to get fixed, a year later and i now have the red ring again. Ive just bought a new xbox because the bastards wont fix it for free.

Ive had my xbox replaced four times but each time they were nice to me and sent me a new xbox so i can't complain.

Wouldn't this be in the Gaming Thread?

But yeah, my mate had Red Ring of Death, he thought leaving it in a thunderstorm would be a smart idea..

Idiot.
I think its time to pack your things lets go,
To a place where we both know,
And dont worry, I'll drive real slow,
Spend some time before we go..

yeah, i heard they just fix it with refurb parts which pretty much ensures that red ring will appear again. so buying a new one is probably your best bet...

IF your xbox 360 is made before like 2007 its pretty much inevitable that you get red rings at some point. I got 3 RROD and sent it back to them and received it in a 3 weeks so not bad

Stop playing for twenty hours straight and get a life, that will fix your problem..

I havent had RRoD yet, but my buddy had another error on his Elite after his idiot nephew played it for Fifteen Hours straight, and when it error'd and turned off, He turned it back on right after!!
