my buddy was asking me what would happen if he took his xbox 360 with the red ring of death, bought a new xbox, swapped the internals and then returned the xbox.

If the store opened the xbox and turned it on and noticed the RRoD what would be the consequences??

After he asked me that i got curious, and just remembering now i decided to ask you guys

These nouns are often used with a form of "to be" rather than "to have," e.g., "he is pwnage" rather than "he has pwnage". Either is a more emphatic way of expressing the simpler "he pwns,"

Or just send it to Microsoft?


i think the warranty must be over, otherwise it didnt make sense that he would ask me that

how would you benafit?

all i can see is you swapping a rrod xbox internals into a good xbox and send one to xbox for them to just fix it for free :S

Edit: if you get the RROD then its always free

I'm no legal expert (I hardly know Norwegian law, much less law from other countries. But I guess they would ring him up, if they could, and probably ask him why he didn't just return it since it's probably covered by the warranty.

They would know they usually put something (special tape reading "warranty void if removed" as a way to know if you have messed with the insides.

for the oither guy asking wheres the benefit this is how

he has RRoD xbox,
he buys a new working xboix,
he swaps the internals, returning the garbage one for $$
keeps the good xbox

I thought this was the case too^ my friends warranty must have run out but he got his replaced a few months back.

If its not true then me buying an Xbox from Woolworths might have not been the best idea oops

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when the store talks to Microsoft about it they'll notice the internal keys and serial numbers don't quite line up and then you'll be screwed.

They went and told the sexton, and

For any red ring of death related problems, the warrenty got extended to 3 years.
Hes probably still covered.
just give me a fender and let me rip
