    Ok...I bought my 360 about 6 months ago on a local classifieds site so I don't have a receipt or anything. It's been great, but just yesterday I got the three red lights and it's not working at all. So am I screwed or will they let me return it to be fixed for free with the new warranty extension on all boxes?

    Oh and this is my unmodded box that I go on live with...in case that matters.

    What would you all recommend?

    well, if the warranty sticker is intact, then contact Microsoft, explain your situation and ask for a reference # if they say that they'll repair it, that way they'll stick to their word.

    if the warranty sticker isn't intact, I would recommend the x clamp modification. google it, it's all over the place ;)

    Thanks guys, I actually ended up needing to call, but won't in the future. The guy had it registered in his name before, luckily I still had his contact info and we were able to transfer the registration to me. Repair is now pending.

    that's exactly what my friend did, they still sent it back... that's weird. maybe he should try again before we x clamp mod it...
