Amanda70448, Yes it is true that you can send the xbox away and get a brand new Xbox 360 console in exchange. Although technically it is not free as you have to pay for postage,

Here are the Telephone details,
0800 587 1102
or +44 20 7365 9792 from a mobile phone
Hearing Impaired (TTY device):
0800 587 1103


If this is of no help all i can recommend to you is to go onto 'google' and type this in "Xbox 360 contact". Then it will come up first result 'Contact us' then click on that.


Best of luck,
Ben

The power chord with the box is still available at most gaming stores. I bought used ones at GameStop about a month ago for about 30 bucks.

Also note that the newer power cable still works on older model 360's.

Hope this helps!

if you have had it within the year call sony playstation and tell them the problem and they will give you a reconditiond one within a couple of days, dont worry they are as good as new, it sounds like it is the YLOD yellow light of death, common with most consoles over 2-3 years old. call 0844 736 0595. they will be very helpfull.

You have major problems I'm afraid. You need to contact Sony about fixing it/replacing it. Just pray it's under warranty. You could equate this problem with the 360's Red Ring of Death.

Waiting on box to be send my son's Xbox in???


Before you send it off. Check to make sure it is not your power supply. If the light on the power supply (the big box whos cord plugs into the xbox) is red not green spray it with canned air and you do not need to send it in. It will function normally.

X Box 360


This exact thing is happening to not only me but to also a friend of mine. You will probably notice that the fan kicks on really high and then goes to 2 flashing red lights, this is because the 360 is overheating or thinks its overheating. My friend's 360 starts up with the fan kicked on high and then only plays for a minute or 2, followed by the 2 red lights. If its under warranty send it back to Microsoft, I took mine and my friends 360 apart and replaced the thermal paste with arctic silver, but it kind of only helped a little for mine and not at all for my friends. SEND IT BACK!!!!!!

Three red lights means your 360 is dying.
Hopefully it's still under warranty - and keep in mind that Microsoft extended the warranty for the 3 red light issue to 3 years, instead of just one. So if you bought it within the last 3 years, just call Xbox customer service at 1-800-4MY-XBOX. Be prepared to be on hold for a while. I believe you can also do this online.
They will send you a box and packing instructions, and they even pay for the shipping. Once you send it, you should get it back in about 2 weeks (or more likely a new 360).

Call Microsoft. Their customer service is extremely friendly. I just received my box back from them after repairing a four red light error code. 360's are prone to breaking down as they are sensitive to heat. Give them a buzz and wait for the empty box they will send you.
