how long is the warranty on the 360? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
My roommate got a 360 that was RRODing for $20 from a pothead on our floor freshman year. With no receipt, no nothing, he sent it to MS and got one in the mail. Of course, he doesn't own any games, because he's a packrat and just takes stuff for no reason (like the 3 Netburst Xeon-based servers sitting, doing nothing..., but I digress) so he steals my Wired 360 controller (for GRID and Geometry Wars and the like) and Halo 3 from someone else so he can embarrass himself by losing on Normal on the first level...

Long story short, tell them is was a Red Ring, and get a functioning system. Repeat 4 or 5 times so you can play the almighty GOW2 and Halo 3, because it's totally worth all the hassle...

standard waranty is 1 year from date of receipt, and 3 red rings is either lifetime warranty and repair, or 3 years from receipt. im not sure bout the 3 red rings tho, they said that they wud fix all 360s up until 2007, which would have been 3 years since the xbox was released. However i think there saying now that 360s shudnt get 3 red rings, so maybe they stopped the 3 year deal? i still think they fix 3 red rings regardless...

In my experience, you don't even actually have to have a legitimate RROD for them to replace/fix it. As long as you tell the people on the phone. Nevertheless, you might want to force a RROD.

Do the towel trick. Guaranteed RROD. Then you have officially extended your warranty.
