My XBox 360 finally succumbed to the hot summer weather and suffered the dreaded Red Ring of Death, or simply put, a complete effing hardware failure.
Having more than just tinkered around inside PC boxes for many years, and believing my beloved Box of X was out of warranty, I opened the bugger up to see if I just needed to push summat back into a socket somewhere. Twas not to be. It wasn’t an easy job getting into the thing, even with the help of various wesites that gave me ample instruction, and in the end there was nothing I could fix. However in doing so I broke the void if broken seal. I didn’t particularly care at the time but…
I since found out that Microsoft in their infinite wisdom had upped the warranty period for this fault to 18 months. B##tards! Like it was front page news. NOT. Why they didn’t just do a recall is beyond me.
Anyway, does anyone in flob.com land know of anywhere I can get my warranty voided XBox fixed?
Or, do I accept that I now have a very stylish brick?!?!?!
