I cant help but laugh about this. See my warranty for my 360 expired yesterday, and I was telling everyone of my friends that I knew something would happen a day after your warranty has expired..You know 90% of the time it will happen with any electrical appliance. So there I was playing Team DM on CoD4 and I die and freeze up. Switch off the console..BOOM RRoD. LMAO. I couldnt stop laughing. Luckily, there is an extended guarantee for things like this so I am not getting charged. But now there will be jack to do for about 3 weeks ha. So my Xbox has broke twice now..the first time was a few months back with a disc tray error. I still <3 you though Xbox :D

Working on getting my third 360 around here.

Kinda lame but, eh. You learn to accept it.

But I swear... if I get E74 again... I'm going to do this to it:

I always fall back on the idea that you can MAKE your Xbox have 3 Red Rings, even if something else broke. The only way you can get screwed is if the problem is with the cables, since you dont ship those in. Has worked for me once already and ended up getting a free hardrive out of it.

Thanks man, I'm quite happy with the repair length. Last time, it didnt even take the 3 weeks they had told me..but that was a different fault. Just hoping it wont be away for like 5 weeks or something. Best of luck on getting yours back too..hopefully in working order ;)

Ps, Day loving that video lol..makes you happy! ;P

Good post Daywalker , clicked play and then read through the posts, isn't it great how x-boxers stick together in crisis.

Personally i think your taking it very well and have a good nature to just shrug it off.
