Ring of Death 360 Elite

Just a quick one. Only just bought an Elite around 8 weeks 6 weeks ago, hardly used it and now have just got the 3 red lights on the fcuker.

What do i do ? Back to gamestation or do i contact Microsoft ?

How long does it take to get a new console or it it there and then if i'm in a shop ?

Thanks

    My mate sent his back through the post (well it was collected via courier) and it was back in the same week. Think there is info on who to call in the box somewhere mate.

    Couldn't find any papers.

    Thanks though.

    I'll give the shop a ring tomorrow and see what they say. Hopefully it's quick as i've just got a new 50" TV and wanted to see what it was like with the 360. LOL

    Mate you should get a full year's warrenty(sp) from Game Station, take it back an they should replace it.

    When I get tired and want to stop,
    I wonder what my next opponent is doing,
    I wonder if he is still working out,
    I visualise him,
    When I see him still working,
    I start pushing myself,
    When I see him quit,
    I start pushing myself harder.

    Microsoft have extended all the warantys due to this so they will replace i no problem.

    I thought the idea of the elite was the better cooling system so that would not happen.

    Another one bites the dust.

    Don't bother with Microsuck as they'll put you on indefinate hold.
    Go back to the shop, although I'm not sure what they'll say if you don't have a receipt.

    Sure i've still got the recite. Never usually throw anything like that away. If not i paid for it with my bank card, so it'll be on a statement.

    Only got the 360 for Dead Rising and Gears of War 1+2, and also heard that a new Island Zombie game is coming out soon.

    Oh and i sound dead posh when i say i own a PS3 and a 360. LOL

    hi mate,

    Just to make sure that it is a problem what is the Error code on the system? - To get the error code you need to:

    Turn on your Xbox and wait until the 3 red lights come on.

    Hold the "sync" button and keep it pressed in , then press the "Eject" button 4 times. = this will give you 4 different lights which translates into a error code

    1 light = 1
    2 lights = 2
    3 lights = 3
    4 lights = 0

    So you should have error code something like 0102 , 1022 , 0111 etc etc

    Find out what the Error Code is and then we can find out what the cause is ;)

    BTW i've repaired about 200 of these ;)

    Make sure it is the red ring of death first and not a lose cable has thats happened to me before and it was just a lose connection.
    I do hope you aint got the 3 red rings though after so little use because its normally 360's that have been battered to death that get it.

    If it the red rings take it into gamestation without the harddrive and you will get a replacement console with a new 12 month reciept.

    Just changed mine over last week

    this is what put me off buying one.... just not worth the hassle.... you'd think they'd sort the problem by now with so many reposrted problems but No

    I do it because I can,
    I can because I want to,
    I want to because you said I couldn't

    Actually they have "jasper" will be out in august, then a revamped slimline version next year, doesnt matter, they have sold more than anyone in the GTA4/ consoles sold rate.
