Xbox 360 problem

I have an xbox 360 and i had opened it. when i opened it, the warrenty sticker was cut as well. but the 360 warrenty was out of date anyway. so my question is if i sent it to microsoft for the rrod. will they over look the fact i took it apart?

    but i had sent it in before with the rrod and the seal was broken then and they fixed it. so hopefully they will fix it for free.

Most likely not.

The normal warranty on an Xbox is 1 year.

Due to the number of consoles with the rrod issue, Microsoft extended the warranty for the rrod specific problem to 3 years .

If you're within the 3 year windows but the tamper seal is broken, you can expect to have to pay for the repair.

The xbox 360 wont read or play any disc what kind of problem is this associated with how can i possibly fix it if anything is it the cd dive and if so could i just replace the CD drive?

you can open your xbox if your warrenty is allready up
open your cd drive and tighten a screw that controls where the lens slides as it probably slides too far look it up on youtube for more info

Re: Blinking green light/won't detect disk drive

If you still have a warrenty sticker call up Microsoft and tell them that your Xbox 360 has overheated, and tell them your serial code. They will tell you if your warrenty is expired, if it's not they will ask you where you live then pick up your Xbox 360 and fix it for free. If your warrenty has expired try this. Power off the Xbox 360 and when it is off press the eject button, it might open they tray. Or try opening your Xbox 360 and remove the disk drives cables from the disk drive and the motherboard and put it back together, you should never try the towel trick really, although it works it can also give your Xbox 360 3 red lights then you have to buy X-clamps and theormo paste, just do the X-clamps and theormo paste when you get one red light. I have had two Xbox 360's, when I did the towel trick it burnt the GPU, the other one a little componante came loose, sorry for my spelling. Hope this helps =D
