Well my xbox had the misfortune of giving up on me. I placed my call in and put it in a box and sent it off to Texas. Only I was in FedEx looking for an email that didn't arrive until much later that night. The packing directions email. I'm not sure what I was thinking but I guess I figured in order to perform repairs on my console Microsoft would require the power cord, hdmi, and the kinekt for some reason so I put them in as well. Then when my email arrived later I knew I had made the dumb mistake. Now I'm wondering if I'm going to be getting what I need back in the mail and not just the box itself. .
