    I sent my XBOX 360 for repair 3 weeks ago and I get it back today.

    :mad: UNREPAIRED.


    MS said that the warranty doesnt cover mine... that's fucked up because IT HAS 3 FLASHING RED LIGHTS!!!

    Then i get it back with a notice saying mine falls under "EXCLUSIONS FROM LIMITED WARRANTY"...

    1) Used with products not sold or licensed by MS (NOPE, never have)
    2) Used for commercial purposes (NOPE)
    3) Modified or tampered with (WTF NO)
    4) Damaged by acts of god, power surge, misuse, abuse, negligence, accident, wear and tear (WTF... if they're going to say it's wear and tear, then what the fuck is the 3 flashing lights???"
    5) Etc. etc.


    Basically, I didn't violate any of them except what...wear and fucking tear? :ugh2:



    FUCK YOU MICROSOFT.

    Go buy another one and this time, get an in-store warranty. Make sure you swap it IN the store and not do any bullshit mailing when you ask about the warranty.

    maybe try contacting their customer support to see why you are not covered. Make sure you speak to the manager and not those 3rd world country kids.

    Also make sure you tell them you are a loyal customer and spend lots of money on games but are considering never buying a microsoft product again because you have been lied to about the 3 red rings policy.

    The funny thing about this, If I've sent all kinds of fucked up boxes to microsoft, not expecting them to send back repaired ones. They sent me back new repaired shit, both times.

    One box was blatantly opened with no sticker, the other was put in the trunk of a car and left there for a week had rrod beforehand and the case started to deform from the heat building in the trunk. Yeah they sent me new shit both times.

    This. It should be obvious too. Be polite, yet firm. Bitching to us doesn't help you much. Good luck.

    Just do what needs to be done, and get some whisper quiet PS3 goodness.

    And don't listen to that fag Sangster, he's the last one to take advice from.

    It is a legitimate legal term.
    It means that if it is killed dead in a tornado or a flood or somesuch Microsoft doesn't have to honor it.
