    I finally got my 360 back, and guess what: it doesn't work. Anytime I try to turn it on, middle of the power button flashes green, and the DVD drive sounds fucked up. I'm so pissed off right now [​IMG]

    That sucks, though. I don't understand why so many get problems though. I have a launch day 360 and it never fails me.

    If you sent it to Microsoft, try sending it back with a note and proof that you had already sent it in.
    If you're lucky, they'll send you it back fixed or just a whole new one. Worst case scenario, you remain the owner of a broken box.

    Ouch! Sounds like you got flash-banged instead.

    That sucks.

    In all seriousness though, it may have gotten damaged during shipping.

    It still has the warranty sticker on it so I could send it back to MS but I'm determined to be able to play backups. It's not really broken, the DVD drive is just fucked up.

    Lol i got an error, sent my xbox in and had it stay there for 3 weeks, holidays and whatever shit that was possible stopped it from coming to my house, finally when i get it, UPS or whoever the fuck broke it and it was in pieces, giving them another 2 weeks to figure out who the fuck pays for the xbox they send me a new one, but no it can't leave the xbox facility because hurricane fucker-face in Texas is stopping shipments, so after another 3 weeks i get my xbox, but on the bright side, they fucked up and didn't ask for my old one and i was able to open it up and fix it, so i have a working perfectly new xbox and a cracked/kinda beat up looking working xbox [​IMG]

    They could have swapped it with a broken Xbox (can't trust these pirates)...

    Have you checked the serial? Did they open it?

    You can remove it and put it back on. http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/topic/9881...-messing-it-up/

    I have some good news. I have found out the problem is the DVD drive connection is just loose. I might have a friend who can help me fix it, if not, I will just send it back to the guy who flashed it for me.

    Why can't you open it up yourself? Can't be too hard.

    Xbox360 fails, get a PS3. Oh, that's right, PS3 has no games. Get a Wii. Oh, that's right, Wii has tons of games but no good ones.

    Consoles fail.

    (JK, I think that they are an alright way to play videogames)
