    "to play game put in xbox 360 console"

    I keep getting this error; "to play game put in xbox 360 console", couldnt find a fix on the net so thought about sending it back for repair.

    My box was manufactured on 19-12-2005 so out of its warranty apparently on the microsoft repair website, I thought they extended it by 3 years? Anyway they tried charging my card over £50 for repairs!

    Anyone know what my options are?

    The extension only covers the red ring of death as far as I understand it

    If you know your 360 really is duff you could force it to overheat (piggy in a blanket!) in the hope that it triggers the RoD. However, I'd guess that they've logged your problem along with the serial number so it might be more trouble han it's worth now.
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    Gonna be fun trying to hit the ROD!

    My friends console had the same problem on and off for quite a while and his suffered the red ring of death fairly recently. Chances are it will die naturally soon anyway I'd force an overheat to get it sent back asap.
