Yes, you can get your Xbox 360 replaced since your 2 year plan is not up. Depending on where you bought it from, you should be able to take it back to the store where you got it and they can replace it for you. I did that with mine at Best Buy. Otherwise you can ship it back to Microsoft and they can ship you back a new one. the directions to do that are on
As for getting an Elite with your plan, I'm not sure whether you can do that. It's probably up to the store you bought it from, but i have no idea.
hope this helped!

Bought a 360 arcade in December and it wont read alot of new games. We think it is burning the disk instead of reading them. It also was showing a red ring of death two weeks after our purchase. We bought...


Because the Xbox is new (less that a year old) Microsoft will repair this problem for free whether the red ring has 1,2 or 3 flashing red lights.

You will also need to tell them about the laser not reading properly.

They will no doubt send you a replacement Xbox as they are well aware of these issues and have even extended their warranty to 3 years with the 3 light red ring of death.

You may however have to wait something in the region of 6 weeks for the Xbox to be returned.

If you need anymore advice please post back.

Xbox 360 is on , but no Picture/Sound

THE TOWEL ONLY HEATS IT UP MORE AND THE 2 X CLAMPS INSIDE WILL VIBRATE ONLY 2 MAKE THE MAIN XBOX CHIP 2 COME OUT OF ITS PLACE.... SO THIS IS WHAT U DO!!! First Get a Screw driver and take out the covers of the xbox and ull see a metal sheeting. Then take out all the screws from the metal board. then take out the other things (take out the fan last) Then If its the graphics chip thats broken then u need a new one but if its out of place, replace it and put the xbox bak 2gether. The  the prob shud not happen again. This is what happened 2 me only last week. it shud only take 30 mins 2 fix.
But the other prob could be the cord cause the cord might be old faulty or broken cause my friend had dat prob.

**** XBOX 360

there is a common occurrence of total failure in Xbox 360 the 'red ring of death', where three of the red lights on the console flash, and the console locks up. there is a recall and repair for the failure that extends to 3 years from purchase, many xbox 360 have been repaired more than once under this plan, my son's has.
MS will not repair the xbox if it has been opened they will suggest that the failure is caused by any modification, take photographs of the console before placing it in the shipper MS will send you for the repair, they will damage it, you will need proof
do not attempt repair yourself,
