Default Attention Victims of the Red Ring of Death!

Anyone else here get the RROD on their Xbox360 and called for repairs? Im asking because I asked for my repair, and they said they'd send me a box to put my 360 in, and send back to Microsoft. But man its been over a week already!!! Oh BTW, I'm in Hawaii. Did it take this long for anyone else???

yea, 360 sucks.

You can call in for a tracking number. I also believe your reference number can also be used to track the box on ups/fedex.

That shyt can take 3-6 weeks. It's usually quicker, but from Hawaii? You never know.


I sent my PS3 in and the whole process took about 2 weeks.

I sent my PS2 in back in the days, and it took almost 6 weeks. I'm still bitter.

I completely forget about this forum. It should be higher.

Considering the number of consoles afflicted with this problem, 3 weeks isn't exactly a long time. Even if they aren't repairing your console and they're just sending you another one, they still are likely to want to verify that you really have the issue in question, so you're still going to be on a wait.

Like I said, 3 weeks turnaround is amazing when you think about it, and by now, you guys should be aware of this when you buy the xbox. This isn't exactly news at this point.

yea, it depends where youre sending from. Im in toronto, i sent mine and it took only 3 days because apparently there is a Microsoft place in mississauga (just outside T.O.) that does repairs. But the box to send it in shouldve have come already, it should come within first couple days, its just a local courier who gives you the box, not microsoft

ps. youll probably get a free gold membership for one month of Xbox Live Gold. Everyone i know who got the ROD got it as well, including one guy who got 3 months cuz he was an absolute pest

Thats where mine went and t.o. is only 2 hours from me, but the problem that it took so long was that they sent it to the wrong address and, when i finnaly got the box it had my correct address the whole time ...
