Default warranty question (xbox 360)

Haha..i bought my xbox360 the day it was released from Costco... well..finally as of last night i got the RROD watching netflix.

Do you think Costco would take a return? i still have the receipt.

Also..do you guys know what the policy is on the XBOX360 warranty?

RROD is covered for 3 years, while other defects are covered for 1 year.

I was told it was easy to fix RROD, you just need to open up your 360, buy an new heatsink online, replace the thermal paste and heatsink, and it should work again and you wouldn't have to worry about the RROD again.

Teny, no. This doesnt work, you need a hot-air rework station. I used to fix them. But its my personal xbox and i don't want to risk breaking it more.

its a problem with the BGA and the motherboard. BGA desolders points and the mobo warps. Causing the RROD.

I thought the RROD was caused mainly by overheating.

You could wrap it in a towel? or try that oven trick that worked on that one graphics card that was posted here back then.

According to squidoo, there's about 6 reasons why the 360 will RROD. So unless you are willing to open up your 360, you probably won't know what's wrong.
