Xbox 360 Repairs

If you're looking for information on how to repair your Xbox 360 yourself, you've come to the right place.

Forum rumours are ripe on the internet that there has been a spike in Xbox 360 returns, both valid and not so much.

This has lead to an increase in the return time for repaired Xbox 360s. I've heard that the turnaround time for Xbox 360 repairs has skyrocketed to as long as eight weeks.

Before the manufacturers were offering the extended 3 year warranty they were charging $140 for Xbox 360 Repairs.

They put out a story that to do Xbox 360 Repairs was something difficult, their way of controlling the masses I guess. Their reasoning was something along these lines...

If we convince people that Xbox 360 Repairs are beyond their own DIY ability then they'll all have to pay us to fix their consoles.

The truth of the matter though, is that the Xbox 360 Repairs you need can be done in the comfort of your own home.

A couple of class action suits later and they brought out an extended 3 year warranty on all new Xbox 360s.

Unfortunately, the extended warranty doesn't extend to everybody.

If you bought your Xbox 360 second hand, they won't fix it for you. They won't fix your xbox 360 if you have opened the xbox up. There are a lot of ways to void your warranty, choose your poison.

If your warranty isn't valid anymore, your best bet is to actually take your Xbox 360 Repairs into your own hands.

Red Ring of Death RRoD

The RRoD or Red Ring of Death as it is commonly known has proven to be an issue for at least one in three xbox 360 owners.

It's becoming more and more noticeable these days as games that really start to push the Xbox 360's hardware to it's limits have come out.

The two games that seem to bring on the dreaded Red Ring of Death the most are Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4. It is so common for these games to cause the RRoD that there is even a class action suit being taken out against the manufacturers for supplying hardware that is not appropriate for playing the games they say it should.

The Red Rings of Death according to the manufacturers was an error prevalent in the first release consoles. Customers who bought the later released premium packs with larger hard drives and High Definition connections have not had to put up with the Red Ring of Death as much.

Microsoft has extended the usual one year warranty to three years, and the RRoD blunder has forced them to set aside $1,000,000,000. Yes that's right, a BILLION dollars just to fix and replace all the faulty xbox 360s out there.

That has to make the Red Ring of Death the most expensive ring on the planet.

Taking advantage of the extended warranty has it's inconveniences though. You must have proof of purchase, be the original purchaser, have purchased your xbox 360 from a licenced dealer, not voided the warranty already by modifying your xbox or opening it.

So hard luck to anybody that heard about the overheating problems who installed additional cooling devices to their xbox. The manufacturer will not fix your Xbox.

Hard luck to anybody that opened up their brand new xbox 360 to personalize it by changing the case, your Xbox will not be fixed for free.

Hard luck to anybody who puchased an Xbox 360 secondhand or otherwise from Ebay or off a friend who overspent his allowance and couldn't afford bus money to get to school. The dead xbox is your problem, not the manufacturers.

Fixing your xbox through the manufacturer can take weeks, and that's a lot of precious gaming time down the tube.

The manufacturer has tried to convince everyone that the Red Ring of Death could be caused by any number of reasons, because initially before the extended warranty was issued you as a customer had to fork out $140+ to fix it..

This has backfired on them and cost them years of revenue.

The truth of the matter though, is that the Red Ring of Death can be fixed in under an hour, and you can do it yourself with just a few household tools that you probably already have.
