RRoD - Own Repair Gone Wrong?

Hi All,

I've got the RRoD on my 360. It is out of warranty, but there is  local company that can fix it for me, however if it were to break again or the fix not work... ccan I still send it to Microsoft to fix, or will they not touch it?

Thanks!

If you get an outside company to fix and they are able to fix it you risk getting the console banned. I don't think MS will mess with it once it has been opened up by someone other than them.

Although I doubt it would get banned for just fixing an RRoD, if someone does remove a warranty seal, Microsoft will not service your console in the future because it has been opened by someone other than them.

I agree that it probably wouldn't but it's still considered tampering by MS so you do risk that when opening or having someone else open up the console.

No they won't. As others have said once the warranty stickers come off they won't. To open and repair they have to come off so MS would know.

I would only let Microsoft repair the console. you also get an extended warranty when Microsoft fixes it. Here is also a red ring of death troubleshooting guide.
