    call 1800 4 MY XBOX
    provide them with a serial number and they will provide you with instructions on how to send the xbox back to them for repair/replacement

    if you've had it modded..make sure that the sticker on the front is intact

    when you send it to them, disconnect the hard drive and if you have had it modded, you will need to re-mod it

    • thanks kinetic. I will do this tonight. and no mods on it, so I'm in the clear.Point51/2

    start here:

    https://support.xbox.com/support…

    hopefully you still have a warranty

    • I'll have to check. I bought it from a good friend of mine a little over a year ago. He gave me all that paperwork with it.Point5

    you can request a repair/replacement online:

    xbox.com/support/

    they used to send you a box, but now you have to provide your own. just print the label they email you and stick it on the box. mine died for the 2nd time last week, just sent it in yesterday.

    • no need to pay for shipping or anything if it's under warrantyMilan

    I was waiting for this to happen. I have had absolutely no problem with it at all over the past year; then when I turned it on earlier this week I got slapped with that red ring of death that I had only heard about.

    It was only fitting. 8 days ago my HD failed in my iMac, so this was just the icing on the cake.

    FML.

    amazing.

    how can you put out a product that doesn't work?

    why isn't a bigger deal being made out of this?

    • My Macbook just died after 1.5 years. Gone. Why don't poeple make a big deal about it?jfletcher1/3
      if it happened 3-5 times a year i'd be more concerned, but yeah, that sucks tooscarabin2/3

    My XBOX died earlier this year. Sent it in via the links above, and was told I would wait upwards of 8 weeks. Had my XBOX back in two weeks, just in time for Resident Evil 5.

    Send it back to microsoft. While you're waiting for the box you can do the towel trick to reboot your xbox.

    Just send it into to Microsoft. It'll take 2-3 weeks to get it back but at least it'll work again...

    if bought with in last 3 years it is still under warranty

    you can do the support ticket online http://support.xbox.com/support/…

    but I had a frustrating time , so I just called the 1800 # and said I have no internet , cause they will want to send you online

    if you are under warranty by sending it in you get a 1 year warranty on the work

    mine has gotten RROD 3 times already , never paid a dime to get it fixed

    • not so easy to just get a PS3 with over 30 games for xboxBattleAxe1/2
      you can trade them in and get the ps3 for freescarabin2/2
