You can buy an optional extended warranty from Microsoft to cover the console for an additional two years. It's your choice to buy or not buy the warranty.

Bumping, thumping, throwing the controller-- this has ALL happened 'by accident' in a heated game at my house. ;) Not to mention my little guy thinking a butter knife in the loading tray is a 'great' idea for opening a device he doesn't understand!

As Ice said, you can purchase the extended warranty, or send in the xbox to be fixed. Last thing we want is any violations for 'home brew' fixing!

Think of it this way: Once you purchase ANYTHING, it becomes your personal property-- and your responsibility. Certain things will be fixed within a reasonable ammount of time due to manufacturer error-- but it's been quite some time since the red rings of death have appeared on our gamer radar. From the telephone to the TVs we stare at every day, electronics have gotten better and better to keep us on our toes-- and money flying out of our wallets!

As gamers we march on. (Or in some cases, Jetpack). Good luck.

Microsoft won't fix it for free because it is your property, not theirs even though they made it. Xbox's are made cheaply and they break often, often hardware failures are a problem with the soldering on the motherboards or around the CPU's and heat sync's. I don't recommend fixing it yourself because Microsoft will not fix it if it has been tampered with, your best bet is to pay the $50 and get an extended warranty.
