I posted this on the xbox.com forums on Tuesday evening:

I rented a movie about a week ago, and sat down tonight to watch it. About 10-15 minutes in, I saw something I wanted to watch again, but when I backed it up to rewatch, my screen went black. No combination of pause, reset, anything would get it back. The only way to get it started again was to back out to the menu and hit restart. Hitting resume just left me in the same black spot. Nothing on screen, no sound. This happened

My Xbox 360 Died Part IIb

Posted 03-28-2008 at 01:23 PM by Joe Siegler (The Well of Wishes)

Well, my replacement 360 just showed up at 3DR via UPS. It still bugs me that the repair facility was 8.2 miles from 3DR HQ, and I couldn't take it there myself. Still, from the time out the door to back in my hands was 7 days, that's really not that bad, all things considering.

Anyway, the first thing I did was open it up to see if I got my same unit back. I DID NOT want my old unit back, as it's manufacture date was 2006-08-23. This was the original hardware footprint of the...

My Xbox 360 Died Part IIa

Posted 03-19-2008 at 07:21 PM by Joe Siegler (The Well of Wishes)

My coffin arrived late Wed afternoon at 3DR for me to send my dead 360 back in. What's amusing is the address on the label they sent me is about a 10, maybe 15 minute drive from 3DR HQ.

I wonder if they'll let me just drop it off. Probably not, but it sucks it's so close and I have to send it through UPS.

As you might remember, back in February of 2007, I had a problem where my original Xbox 360 died. My original Xbox 360 was bought on January 1, 2006, and lasted until February 3, 2007. At that time, I had been just out of warranty, so when it died, I was going to have to pay $129 (plus tax and shipping) to repair the thing. I've been through this story already, if you read the link above, you can check out my original nightmare....
