Wow. After almost 2 years it happened to me. Great. Got it on ebay for like $450 (at the time was a good deal) so it has no warranty. Is my only option sending it to M$ ?

i'm sure nobody gives a damn, but crap.

Well, another option, of course, is buying a whole new console instead of sending it to Microsoft. :p But sending it to Microsoft to get it fixed would be a lot cheaper than buying a new one...

Sorry to hear about it breaking. :(

How long would it take to get it to Microsoft and back and would it cost anything?

My friend's 360 took well over a month to get fixed, so don't expect it within a week or two. I'm not sure about the price though.

Ugh. Well this goes on my long list of crappy things that have happened to me since the beginning of March.

also: if i take my hard drive to a friends house would it work there on his elite?

it should.. i would assume it should lol since the Elite is just a 360 with a HDMI plug and a bigger HD (which should be interchangable).

go to your friend's house and test it and then let us know ;)

The HDD should work at your friend's house...if everything still works...you don't mind spending a little extra cash and can't wait a month and a half for MS to say it's just plain broken...you could buy a Core. Then...you'd have an extra controller, a working console and you could use your Hard Drive so the only real difference is the white DVD tray. But I say meh...collects too many finger prints for my liking anyway.

My 360 is being repaired at the moment.

I got told off customer services that it will take roughly three to four weeks for me to receive my 360 back off them.

Also, I just went out and bought an Elite for my bedroom, and yes, your 20GB hard drive will work on the Elite.

I bought a memory card, moved all my saves onto the memory card, plugged the 120GB hard drive in and transferred them over.
