Default Does anyone do xbox 360 repairs?

The box crapped out on me for the 2nd time in under 2 years. No overheating and no faulty power cord, however, the drive won't turn the games. I'm in the middle of a game and the drive starts chewing itself up, plastic gears went or something got jammed, I have no idea. Anyone good with xboxes or know someone who can help? Xbox service couldn't do a thing because it's out of warranty. Thanks.

They did. And even if it's out of warranty for whatever reason, pick up the phone and call MS. They really do a decent job of working with you.

Of course, if you've modded it, you're screwed no matter what.

They only extended it to 3 years if it was the 3 rings of death...

Call 1-800-4MY-XBOX, ask for Max...

Purchased it in may 2006 and I spent an hour on the phone with a supervisor telling me that I was out of warranty..... when I asked about my service records they showed NOTHING. I've already sent it in once and it was the 3 rings of death. No extended warranty for me.

This Max guy.... joke or serious? ^^

Serious...But you don't have to ask for him, And they HAVE TO EXTEND THE WARRANTY FOR THE RINGS OF DEATH!

Got mine fixed in about a month, I had another one so it didn't bother me too much, but at least you should never have to worry again.

Well, the rings of death isn't my current problem obviously. It doesn't help that they have no record of me ever having sent my console in. I appreciate the advice guys, looks like I'm calling em back....

Meh putting a new drive in it will be about $70... Just go to costco and buy one. Put your broken one in the box and return.

1. They dont check serials
2. They write it off
3. It will get sent back to MS
4. You are happy
5. Profit?????

Nah. For all they know you purchased your original at costco and its under their policy. Just make sure and swap hard drives so you keep all your saved games

Ninja Edit: *cough* A friend of mine has swapped over 20

Dude it would be retarded for them to pursue anything. You could just say it broke and you sold it on ebay/craigslist/yardsale/traded for crack/traded for prostitution/et-mother effing-c
