aight so guess my sh*t s diein (hope it was just a one time thing).But my sh*t is modded so ihave 2 options...

1.Pay microsoft to fix it

2.Swap serials and take the broken one back to wamart


my questions is....if i send to microsoft how much to fix it and will they reflash my drive or wil it stil be modded?

and how do i go about swaping serial number?Do i just swap the cases or what?

try fixing it yourself first. I heard Msoft wont even touch it even if you do pay the 160 if it's been modded.

From what I've heard microsoft wont touch any consoles that have been tampered with. Check out the xbox-scene forums for different ways to fix it. The cheapest and best one you can do is the x-clamp fix but it only lasts a couple months on average. There is a so called permanent fix which involves changing the solder that holds the gpu and cpu to the motherboard, It's called reballing. The problem with reballing is its pretty hard to find people that still do it because most sites that did it where shut down already. Good luck

NO NO NO NO NO!

Just send that sh*t in as is. I sent my modded sh*t in as is about 3 months back and they sent me a refurb ASAP. I just completely removed the Microsoft sticker.

The only downside is that refurb died on me when I got GTA IV and as we speak I'm mailing out the refurb system today.

But NO don't do sh*t but totally remove the sticker if you haven't already done so and input the info on the online support page and if that's down (it was 3 days ago when I called) call MS say you have the red rings and they'll ship you a box.

Oh and the new system they send you won't be modded but it won't be banned either (I sent in a modded banned console and got back one that wasn't banned or modded). Gotta love it.

Hey the worst that could happen is they ship your joint back so it's worth a try either way but I'm living proof.

my sh*t just died while playing cod4 and got the 3 red lights after i turned it off and back on.called ms but since my 360 was registered by my homie i got it from they wont fix it..sad part about it is my homie is doing 15 yrs..so im stuck with this peice of sh*t....anybody know any soloutions
Yo I see no one answered your question. My suggestion is get your locked up homeboys info address, email, xbox.com user and pass, etc. and logon to xbox.com and setup a repair order. When you get on there though change all the info to your current address and such. If you can't setup the repair online change all the address info to your place regardless. Then call up MS as your friend and setup a repair. And confirm the address is the one you changed it to.

i might of already posted this but im bored,so sorry if i already did but,my xbox 360 hasnt RROD yet but from what people have been tellin me i think its on its way to RROD cuz it freezes constantly on certain games(mass effect and GTA IV are the ones its been doin it on but thats basically all i play).ive talked to a bunch of people who had mass effect and they said there's was fine so im guessin somethins wrong with my xbox 360



just wonderin if there's anyway i can fix it cuz ive already tried contacting microsoft but there customer support sucks and they basically said there's nothin they can do unless it RROD's which its not doing.although if i think about it the warrenty is already expired so i doubt even if it RROD there's probably nothin they can do anyway right

eather way there's no point in playin it cuz it freezes up constantly

Look up the x-clamp replacement method. Parts are less than $15, and labor is easy. Basically, you take the x-clamps off the bottom, and replace them with machine screws and washers. You'll also replace the thermal paste with arctic silver paste. I'd also recommend doing the "penny" fix as well (use 2 per RAM, not 3).
