RCOD Signup Sheet

Wow...

Can I have all your games? :s1003:

Edit: That does suck, by the way. I didn't mean to downplay your experience. It's kind of shitty that Micro$oft has their thumbs up their ass when it comes to acknowledging that they seem to have a reliability issue. Maybe something will work itself out.

Add me to the list. Last night when I went to put in Halo 2 for the TTL challenge, I got that checkerboard screen....and I knew it was coming. Sure enough, when I tried to turn it back on - RCOD.

But M$ was actually pretty helpful. Maybe it's because I paid for a 2-yr warranty (which my records indicate in March 08, but the guy told me ended in Dec 08), but he said I'd be getting a box in 3-4 business days and should have a total turnaround time of 8-10 business days. Knowing that's not the case, I asked for a new system instead of a repaired one, but I guess I'll see what I get.

Hopefully I won't have to pay for a new warranty, but since my launch box has lasted 1 1/2 years I can't complain too much....

I just hope I don't miss the entire Halo 3 beta. I did have Wed & Thurs off so I can play all day.

Add me to the list... I guess after Mayhem I am now # 79?

Mine froze one night watching a DVD. It has frozen every now and again when I woudl play games and a quick power down and power on would work fine for days or weeks.

This time on the second or third freeze I got RCOD!

Amazingly, I turned it off and did somethign for a few minutes and when I turned it on again... it worked fine and we finished the movie for 2 full hours.

It only took till playing a game a night or two later and 'freeze, power off. power on, and RCOD AGAIN'.... This time it never fully recovered. A few times it would go green, but would freeze when the XBOX logo flashed up.

Now it is RCOD ALL THE TIME....

Make me # 80 !!!

Mine died on me last thursday, and I overnighted it myself to cut down on the repair time. I'm like Mayhem I hope I don't miss to much of the Halo 3 beta. Heck even Forza comes out next week, so I hope to get it back soon.

This sucks. stupid red lights.

This is my second one to go bad on me.

I know this thread is ancient, but I was hoping we could get an update on the total number of failures from folks.

I have had failure number two. I am waiting on the third XBox to get back to me. I am using a "spare" until the old one gets back.

Hopefully I'll have a functioning unit by the time Halo 3 comes out and I'll see you guys on line.

This might be a stupid question, but here goes:

When you send your xbox off to be repaired, is your warranty still from the date of original purchase, or do you get a new warranty when Microsoft repairs the xbox?
