Sure it was 3 Red Rings and not 4 or 2? Which both do not the require the 360 to be shipped just something on the users part.

So I just got my Xbox back 2 weeks ago after having the red rings of death and two days ago I got 1 red ring. I turned off my xbox and restarted it and it was cool..But I have noticed my xbox acting a little weird. I think if this xbox fu*ks up i'm going to get the Elite and call it a day.

Well I just sent off my xbox for the very first time no less than 20 mins ago.
Then I come back home and I read the instructions again, and it said to

Record the tracking number from the return label and obtain a receipt from the shipper.

Will I be ok even though I forgot to do that?

I'll give it a shot should we get the red lights. Worth a shot vs trashing it.

Sigh...Come back soon. MS better give me back my original console and not some other bs.
man i got my 360 like in 06 NEW, after like 1 year i got the red rings
i sent it back and i got some stupid letter that said they had to REPLACE IT
cuz it was unfixable, AND MUTHAfu*kERS SENT ME A REFURBISHED ONE
and less than a year later (i hardly even play the 360) i get them again
i sent it like 3 weeks go and i got my 360 today AND I GET SOME 360 THATS ALL MARKED UP BANGED up
SO I WENT FROM SENDIng in my brand new 360, to getting a refurbished (i knew it cuz they fu*king told me the serial was a refurbished console) and now to getting anoooother refurbed thats not even the one i sent in (but i called and the guy said it was the same one)
But its not cuz this one had marks n sh*t ...they had got my system like one day, and by the next they shipped me another one ...so i told him like cmon now ...

and NOW im pissed cuz this one i got is all banged up
Anyone that has dealt with this before or a similar situation got any tips Cuz i mean sh*t i either want another console or a new one or something man
or get some kinda gift certificate to buy one cuz really this is bullsh*t

ANy Suggestions on what i can do? is it too late to get a new one ? (the supervisor said they dont send out new xboxes)

anyone got any tips/suggestions on what might be the easiest way to get a 360 Elite either through microsoft (even though i have the regular one)
or any other method maybe getting credit somewhere and paying the difference or something
(i have no receipts of my original purchase)

I can't believe ppl are still dealing with Microsoft's bullsh*t. Get a PS3 and stop supporting a company that doesn't give a sh*t about it's consumers.
i agreed with you up until you said M$ doesnt gcare about its consumers...i dont think they would've extended the warranty on the main issue out so long if they didnt care about their consumers...

but i agree with the cat above about the refurbed boxes...i just received my 4th 360 in the mail a couple of days ago...none them lasted more than a year...1st one lasted 11months...2nd one 10months...3rd a few weeks(not RROD but a USB issue) so i'm just waiting on the day i can send this one back...although i've already found something wrong with it...one of the green LEDs doesnt light up...let's say for instance i have the box laying down horizontally...and i have 2 controllers connected...the LED for the 2nd player will not light up...not a real big issue...but still an issue none the less...

for real tho, doesnt it just get you pissed to go from a NEW 360 you payed for with your hard earned money to used pieces of sh*t that always have something wrong with em

long story short....

I went out and bought Quake Wars today and came home and it kept freezing during the training mission figured it might have been a defective game so I tried to play GTA to make sure another game was working alright and then that started freezing too...

I went to the store returned both of them (she was cool about exchanging GTA late) came home and GTA stillf freezing right away . Quake wars seems to be working alright right now so far.

Tried to play halo was straight, army of two worked straight, now idk wtf to do should I just call microsoft and send my sh*t in for a repair? the store rep said that the first sign of your lazer failing is when certain games dont work anymroe on it.

beantown my sh*t did the same thing before it red ringed. But it only took an hour to get the rings. GTA froze. NBA 2K8 froze. After about 6 or 7 freezes the next time I restarted the console I got the rings.

Call MS and see if they'll let you send it in for the laser or what not, but it could be the rings developing. Just keep an eye on it or bi*ch to MS until they ship you a coffin box.
