I was hoping for your sake it wasn't a launch model, i have a launch premium console but as you already know, mine died in March last year, then again a few days after it came back.

As for your options, i'd also sway towards option 2, maybe search out a cheap Arcade model if you're thinking of buying a new console.

Send it to Microsoft because if they cant fix it they will send you a new console
Can't wait for Shenmue 3



I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.

little update for you all,

I tried the self-fix route (twice) but couldnt solve the problem, it might have only taken you two hours Neato but I'm not great with my hands... ;)

So I finally conceded and bought a new console, got an elite bundle from an independant shop, I'm not patient enough to wait for the 250GB HDD bundles!  Probably trade in most of the accessories and games that came with it!  But i'm back and thats the main thing.

cheers for the advice people.

Sorry to hear the fix didn't work, but glad to hear you're back in the game.

I know some local entrepeneurs that actually buy broken 360's and repair/resell them for profit.  I don't know if you have anything like that in your area, but it may be worth a shot to recoup some of your expenses.

I've listed my knackered box on ebay, someone will pick it up for spares.  Also a mate of mine is gonna buy the TORX drivers I bought at face value and by the time I trade in the games/pads/camera that came with new box I'm not too out of pocket...

...plus I have a shiny new toy... ;D
