Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

No ring lights on xbox360

About a year ago, I got the red rings of death. I turned it into xbox and they fixed it free of charge.

I turned my xbox on yesterday and the ring around the power button does not light up and no picture or sound show up on the tv. I spent about an hour talking to someone who could barely speak english just to have them tell me that I'd have to pay $120.00 to have it repaired.

I have a theory. I believe when you get the red rings of death and send it in for repairs, xbox then sends you a xbox with the red light, if it craps out again, they can charge you for the repairs instead of fixing it for free.

Someone on a message board said to just send it in as a red ring of death problem and they'll send out a new one without checking the faulty one; they just take down the serial number...
we'll see.

If I can't get this resolved free of charge, I'm switching to a ps3.
