Well when you go to the site, it will ask you to put in information about yourself and your xbox like serial number and stuff. Based on that serial number the website will tell you if your xbox is under warreny. If it is they will mail you a box for free with a free return label for them. It will not cost you anything to mail it. If its defective they will fix it or send a new one. MY 360 elite died on me and i did all that and it was about a month and they sent me a brand new one because they couldnt fix my old one and they gave me a free month of xbox live.

Okay here are a few ways that might fix the Xbox 360.
Turn off the Xbox 360, wait 5 minutes, plug it back in and see if the error is gone.
Unplug both the AV (audio and video) cables and the power cables from the Xbox 360 and wall. Wait a few minutes, and replug everything in and see if the error is gone.
Take your hard drive out of the Xbox 360 and start the console and see if the error is gone. If the error is gone, turn the Xbox 360 back off and replace the hard drive. Then check if the error is once again gone.
If none of the above steps worked, then your going to have to spend some
money to get your Xbox 360 back and running.
If your warranty hasn't
expired, then you can send it to Microsoft and they will fix it for
If your warranty has expired, then you can still send it to
Microsoft, but it will cost you about $150.
If you don't want to spend the 150 you can spend a little bit of money and buy a guide to replacing it yourself on Ebay and such. If you do try and do it yourself remember that once you open the Xbox 360 the warranty voids, so if you still have a warranty send it to Microsoft.
Hi, firstly is your xbox still under warranty if so i suggets you send it back to microsoft via going on to xbox,com. on xbox.com you will be able to get help on fixing it firstly, like things to try before sending it off
if its not under warranty send me a message back and il help you further
you cannot fix the "red rings of death" by yourself. you'll need to send it off to microsoft to be refurbished or replaced. if you bought yours new it should have come with a three year warranty that microsoft started issuing after the "rrod" problem became commonplace. if you no longer have a warranty you might could find a qualified tech to replace it but i doubt the cost would be worth it; considering a new "core" 360 cost $199 now...
jc take the console apart there are tutorials all over the place start with youtube
clean your drive if this does not help you might either need a new lazer or a new drive itself take it apart and check for yourself just remember if you open it your rrod warranty is kuput..so which is more important cod6
if that happens make sure all the connections in the back of your xbox 360 are connected and if it is still flashing red its probably the red ring of death and thats were three rings are flashing red so if its like that your going to have to send your xbxo 360 into microsoft
Im sorry to hear about that Markis, but they Xbox and the 360's drives are not interchangeable. For one the Xbox had this random multi pin connector, while the 360 has a SATA connector.
But dont despait just yet, IS your 360 still undre warranty? you can send it it to Microsoft and have them repair it. Just call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and send it in to them.
are you tring to play just xbox games or are they xbox 360 games because if they are just xbxo games you just need to go to the nearest gamestop and ask them to show you where you can buy a backwards comptiablity disc and the upload the software on to your xbox 360
