I wondered how long it would be before a new post was created. Anyways I agree with Dude. If you have not voided your warranty and have 3 red lights, then give MS a call and they will fix the problem for you.

Yeah, the Microsoft warranty was extended to 3 years for '3 red lights' problems, so your console should be covered - you can check by entering its serial number on xbox.com, and also use that website to order a repair. Of course, if your warranty seal is broken for any reason, then they probably won't repair it (you might get away with it, but usually they just return them if they see the seal is broken), and Microsoft do sometimes take quite a while getting them back to people.

So if your seal is broken, you're in a hurry or just fancy trying to repair it yourself, you want to try an X-Clamp replacement. Google for the method, check on xbox-scene.com, or I've written a guide that I could send you a link to. If you don't fancy doing it yourself there are people who offer repair services where you can courier your console back and forth and have them repair it.

Good thanks for asking. you? Work is hectic and college is annoying. I think I should patent 3d 'character' avatars on mobile phones (joke). Or at least pre-rendered gifs. Looks like that is where they are headed next. Seriously though, if I had motivation, I would probably try to work on software for that now to get in on it early.

Using the warrant is the easiest way to fix it, ya.
