"a period of one year (three years for conditions that cause three lights on the ring of light on the front of the Console to flash red) starting as of the date of your sales receipt for the purchase of the Console, or (ii) as applied to an Accessory, a period of 90 days starting as of the date of your sales receipt for the purchase of the Accessory"

So 1 year from the day you buy it of any damage to it.

Then 3 year warranty of the "3 red lights" (red ring of death) couple weeks ago (including me) experienced the 3 red lights, so Microsoft extended everyone's warranty for another 3 years only on the 3 red light issue.

I've only had to send in my 360 1 time and that was of the red lights, other then that no problems.

I hope this helped, also you can connect that Xbox at 1800-4my-xbox for any questions.

Thanks & Good luck!

    Also you may not want to get them "Xboxlive" just a little word of advice, there is very value language on it.

    If they haven' heard bad words yet, don't get them xboxlive.

    The 360 is all about Xboxlive though, you can download movies,themes,games,etc.. (costs money of course its done by points you buy) also make sure your causes with your credit card.

Red ring

these are a few options to repair a 360 that has red rings of death. Microsoft has a 3 year warranty covering it so that should be your first option since it will keep your warranty active.

You can also buy kits to fix it for a small price that will help keep your 360 cooler and repair any broken solder points. Let me know what route you want to go and I will get the documents that will help you get back to playing on live;-)

When did you buy your 360??there is a warranty on it for three years that microsoft will cover the shipping and repairs.

If not there are some easy fixes out there but do not open it until you know there is no warranty. Let me know in the comments and I will get you the stuff to fix the red lights.

You should only attempt to repair yourself if your warranty sticker is broken on your xbox.

When Microsoft fixes your RROD (which has a three year manufacture warranty) they give another year warranty on the repaired item.

They replace your motherboard and add heatsinks .

There are solutions on youtube, if you want to do it yourself.

These solutions will violated your 3 year warranty and involve putting an xclamp fix or sticking on some random heatsinks- that will absorb the heat from areas within the Xbox. There are some video you can download from piratebay, but I do not recommend doing this yourself.

Other options:
1)sending your xbox to microsoft for 2-3 months to be repaired.
2)buying another xbox from walmart, and swapping it with your broken one, return the broken one to the store and let them deal with warranty return, while you enjoy the new and unbroken one.

I have a 2 year warranty on my computer and i want it to get fixed,where do i take it?

Go to and sign in using your .NET Passport details, go to 'Support' and then you have to go and click on the 'Register and Repair' link. From there you will be guided through the steps of making sure the serial number on your xbox 360 is registered and, assuming your console is still in warranty, after explaining the problem ie, 3 red lights, you will be presented with the opportunity to print out an instruction sheet with details on how to pack it in a box properly for transport to Microsoft for repair. The printout will also provide you with a postage paid coupon with all the neccessary postage details so it gets to Microsoft safely. When its been fixed they will ship it back to you also at no cost, providing I think, that they were actually able to find a fault that is covered by warranty, if they don't find a problem covered under warranty I hope you have very deep pockets because by the time those bloodsuckers at Microsoft have finished with you it would possibly work out cheaper to buy a basic Xbox 360 Arcade console, anyhow, you can check the terms and conditions for warranty repairs on the Xbox website also.

3 red flashing lights

This is what is known as the red ring of death and plauges a lot of xbox 360s. It means that there is a "general hardware failure" and there isnt much you can do about it. if you have a warranty on it, return it. if not, call 18004MYXBOX. Microsoft should cover the warranty and will give you a box to send the 360 off in. The only downside is that this process is often slow but you usually get sent a new xbox back.

Salutations nofear2313,

The "Ring of Death" is a known issue with Xbox 360's and Microsoft has actually extended their manufacture’s warranty to 3 years to cover this type of problem. I would contact 1-800-4MYXBOX to see how to get the unit serviced.

Hope this helps.

Xbox controller will not sync with console

Disconnect the power cord from the 360 for a couple of minutes.

Plug it back in and turn it on. Power turn on a different controller than the one that isn't working and sync it with the 360.

Now turn on the original controller that wouldn't sync, and use the sync buttons on the 360 and controller. It should sync up and go to player 2 slot.

Everything should be good now, that's how I fixed mine.
