Xbox 360 Slim Red Dot (Over 1 year old)

Before anyone jumps to conclusion and tells me to replug all the crap or pull out my hard drive READ! So I bought my Xbox during November 2012 (A week after Halo 4 was released I think) and my console is months beyond its warranty so i'm paying $ now for repairs by Microsoft. The night after I shut it off my console it was fine (I had screen freezes and game restarts every once in a while before but it was never often or bad) but the next day it refused to turn on so I replugged all my cords ,cooled off the console, and dusted it off but after that it finally turned on but only to find out there was a solid red dot on the power button RDOD. I first thought it had something to do with the power brick because when I turned on the console and the brick always showed the orange light no matter what, so I borrowed my pals and put it into my console but it still refused so I knew that wasn't the problem. Im starting to think I need to repair my console but before I do spend money into repairs I want some advice for my situation. Should I repair it? (By MS or a local console repair guy) , or buy a new console if its really dead, or fix it myself. I know if I mail it in it will take MS around a month to repair and return and I read stories about it breaking after only a few days after it coming back. Please give me any helpful advice, I am desperate because Titanfall is just around the corner and I want a good solution so I can enjoy it when it comes out. PS: Anyone who has the same problem please respond because I have not seen this problem anywhere else (or at least I think) and I would like to see other people being helped out too.

Hello Apex,

First of all you shouldn't temper yourself with the xbox console. The problem you are experiencing with your console is physical and as such you should ask for repairs as soon as possible. For further information check this support link:
