    my ex gave me a used xbox360 halo 3 edition for my birthday last year, i got the 3 rings of death this morning. i called microsoft and gave them the serial numner and everything and they told me since it was a used console the warranty has been voided at trade in. I called up gamestop and they told me bummer. it was in the middle of one of the best modern warfare 2 matches i had ever played. it felt alot like caddyshack when the old guy's playing golf in the middle of the storm. and I can't just switch consoles and return it because this console is custom green. I can't just go out and fork out 200 dollars either because i gotta pay tuition for school. fucking xbox.

    Did you tell them it was used or did they see it that way in their computer?

    Use the online tool to see if you can process the repair that way without talking to anyone:
    http://support.xbox.com/support/en/...ort/en/us/nxe/registerdevice.aspx?step=repair

    If all that fails, its pretty easy of a fix to do yourself. Find guides online for the heatgun trick and replace the stupid x-clamp design with some screws and you are good to go.

    Mine died too yesterday. Made it 4 glorious years 2 of which I've had a broken disc tray that forces me to bitch slap it when closing the tray. Now it freezes before even getting to the menu. No red rings though, my xbox isn't a bitch. Good thing it happened now because I know what I'm getting for Christmas.

    yeah, i ain't got shit to lose! besides if i got a new console i would lose all my licenses for all my dlc so i might as well give it a try. can anyone post a good link to a repair video? i'm not trying to jump the gun with any google recommendation I need to find something that's proven to work. I do have a soft spot for this halo 3 version of my box and i would be sad if it didn't stand on top of my bookshelf

    yea, you have nothing to lose.

    theres tons of 3ring repair videos on youtube,
    ive repaired one using the parts from lowes/home depot

    like 3-4 dollars worth of screws, nuts, and washers..
    worked like a champ after
    then ive done the old towel trick, sometimes its relieves it for good, sometimes not.

    Same here. Came home on the start of my weekend to find out the 360 was dead.

    My condolences :(

    how do I do license transfers?

    my current xbox has 20 gigs i figured i might as well fork out and buy an elite since 20 gigs ain't shit and paying 150 for a harddrive is out of the question, plus another controller would be nice. I also want to fix my current one so i can put it downstairs so the fam can watch netflix.

    You can upgrade the hard drive. THere's a youtube video for that too (and it's a pretty comprehensive guide). I've got a 120GB drive that I upgraded and it works fine.
