Xbox 360 repair

Our son's 3 year old + Xbox 360 has come up with error E74 with one red light which on xbox.com advises us to take it for repair. Knowing swiss service prices : my question is anyone knows whether this will cost more than a new one ( about 279 CHF or less in UK) and if anyone knows a recommended place for such a repair. Thanks

Re: Xbox 360 repair

I know that Microsoft said they would repair the red ring problems free of charge last year. You'll have to check if that is still available.

There is also a "cure". Take out the HDD and any games, wrap the unit in a towell covering all sides, turn on and leave for 15mins.
After 15mins, let it cool down and then stick the HDD back on and try a game.
I am by no way endorsing this method. It is just one of many that can be found on the web. Try at your peril.

If you go here https://service.xbox.com/servicehome...t=en-gb&scrx=1 you can register your 360 and will be able to check if the extended warranty is available on your machine.

When did you buy it?

Re: Xbox 360 repair

The advice for repair with Microso.ft was spot on, turned out we had only owned it 2.5 years ( the production date on back showed we could not have owned it 3) . Luckily we had NOT registered it in UK so I registered here and it proved no problem to get all the details off web for a free repair and everything free ( except a good transit box) to send to Germany via UPS for repair.
Now waiting for return which is promised within 28 days.
Once returned I will try and get our 2 Xbox live subsricpions extended by 28 days for te time we have missed BUT that is for another day. Thanks
