Re: Warranty

Unless it was an extended warranty, you are not suppose to get anything back from the company, but you must keep the original bill of sale to prove when you purchased the unit in case you need service while it is still under the warranty.

The mic boom on my PX21 headset is too loose and will not stay in position any more. I have only owned the headset for about 3 months, but I didn't use it for the first month and it started about 1 month...

Well, if you don't want to send in the headset for warranty repair, your solutions are rather limited. With that in mind, any solutions will probably be sub-par, compared to getting a new headset.
Anyways, you could try to MacGyver it a little bit. I've had this problem before, and it was solved nicely by a little bit of glue from a hot-glue gun. The only problem is that if you ever need to move it, you have to re-glue it.
Alternatively, some thin metal wiring could be wrapped around the mic and the headband and used to support it.
Honestly, your best bet is the warranty service. Sorry about that. Try the hot-glue though, worked great for me.
Good luck!

The Xbox power button is flashing a red colour around it when turned on

You have what is commonly known as the "Red Ring of Death" There are a few different types of rings (denoted by which actual quadrants of the ring are lit), the most common one can TRULY only be fixed by an experienced tech. You should eject any discs, turn it off, eject the hard drive, take out any other storage devices, unplug all cables from the unit, and mail it to Microsoft for repair. Hopefully it is still under warranty. I got a refurbished unit sent back to me just a week after I sent my own off to them when this happened to me a couple years ago, I had a custom face plate on mine so I had to remove that as well when I sent it in because I was not guaranteed to get my actual unit back.

Describe your Hi, ive got E74 1 light, ive gotten it checked out by a guy locally, i was there, and everythings fine, gpu's perfect, and ive tried 2 different AV cords and an HDMI cable and it turns on...

if the unit was purchased less than three years ago you can still get it covered under warranty as addressed on microsoft by clicking here. this is actually a serious problem and effects a few consoles, much like the RROD if it is not under warranty you can try doing this and i stress the not. Make sure of this by calling microsoft before attempting this. if you do not want to do the overheat fix i suggest either A. find a company that fixes xbox's and provides a real reflow. Not a heatgun and a fan. But a actual infrared reflow station. or B. Send it to microsoft and pay the money to get it repaired. or C. sell it on your local craigslist or to someone that repairs them locally and use the money to buy a new xbox 360 slim or a used xbox 360 that is working but then someone might have already done the overheat trick and it may not have much life left.

i have done this before and after he 2nd time i sent it to a company to reflow the xbox for 30 dollars. An i havent had a problem since. remember what is done in the video is only if your not covered under the extended warranty or e74

Red tint on xbox 360 display

From what i understand, any strange video problem is typically a telltale sign that a red ring of death is in the near future. In past consoles I've repaired, people have complained about "tinting", "lines", etc etc.... if your console is still under warranty, I would suggest sending it back to them. Or you can find someone like myself who does repairs.

Hi there. it sounds like the blue ray drive has failed on your ps3.I take it that sony repaired your old one or sent out a reconditioned unit? If it is still under warranty get them to replace it again and insist on a 12 month warranty. i am on my 3rd unit now and because its a 40 gig model which they dont make anymore i am having to do with yet another reconditioned unit. hope this helps.

Xbox 360 help

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.

Black chip on the of 'em fell out.

All xbox 360 are given a warranty for the 3 rings of death. If you call microsoft and tell them that your xbox 360 continues to get the rings of death, they will mail you a box, take your console, repair it, install the latest hardware, test it, and mail it back to you for free.

Your Xbox is under warranty, I would call Microsoft and have them fix it. You don't want to open it up or do anything to void your warranty in case you get the red rings of death.
