Call Microsoft, they fix them free regardless of warranty.

Suggest you read the following first to see if it is covered by MS.

MS had an exemption in place for these for a while, not sure if it still applies but certainly when my out-of-warranty original 360 needed work on an RROD last year they took care of it.

Usually it's just the power supply so they send a new one out, if not then you have to send your console to them and they send it back good as new - with another 12 months warranty too :)

It doesn't matter.  Just call/email Xbox support and they'll sort it for you. Either you didn't read what I said or just skimmed but it was EXEMPT from warranty.

They extended the warranty to 3 years for rrod and e74 errors. But as far as I know that has finished now as it's not ment to happen on the later consoles.

I am a electronics repair tech and I bought my xbox with rrod before the extended warranty came in.

Send me a pm or email alexleov@gmail.com if you would like me to fit it.
