Broken Xbox 360?

Filed under: Gaming News — XBL King @ 10:16 am

This isn’t so related to xbox 360 gaming but I guess people have broken xbox 360s so we should help em out.

What do you do if your xbox 360 is broken? Well there is a temporary fix you can see in this video:

Other than that here is some information:

Immediately call xbox 360 support. The xbox 360 support number is: 1-800-4MY-XBOX. They’ll set you up with a free way to ship your 360 to Microsoft and they’ll replace it free of charge. Note that you’ll have to be under warranty. This is something that a lot of people hate. The warranty isn’t very long (~1 yearish?) so hopefully you stiill have it.

ADVICE: If you can somehow get extended warranty do so!

Also, if you get the xbox 360 repaired and you are under warranty they automatically extend it by a year, so you don’t have to worry at least for a while.

When you call them they’ll ask you to ship the xbox 360 back to them so do that and you should get your new one in a bit.

OK, that should cover the broken xbox 360. Now, what about halo 3 wars? Looks damn good doesn’t it. No real updates since then, just been looking at pictures and fan info.

Maybe the next post will be about Gears of War 2 and the new gameplay mechanics.

  1. Are a lot of them dying? or is it just a few?
    I read on a few other blogs how people have had problems too.
    Wondering if it’s related to overheating or known issues…
