How likely is it to find someone in my city who can fix it cheaply versus sending it off to Microsoft? There are nerds all over who can do this shit, right? And I have another of the old ones that has something different wrong with it, perhaps they can take it and put them together and make it work.

1st one died (rrod)
2nd one was stolen
currently on my 3rd although the DVD drive and the RF sensor (ring of light part) both shit the bed but I fixed them myself.

my launch worked great up until 7 months ago
tried to fix it with some new thermal paste, didn't work
ended up buying one off an OTer for 100 bucks

yeah but all those fixes are temporary. It will eventually fail, could be weeks or months but it will.

Goddamn them. I don't know why it pisses me off so much, I honestly don't even play that often but my husband does and I was really looking forward to getting a Kinect. Now I have to buy a whole fucking new system because there's no way we're going without. FUCK being addicted to a shitty product.

My roommate's launch console gave up a little over a year ago. It never RRODed, but generally sucked and started freezing all the time. I bought a 120gb elite to replace it. Havn't had any problems with it.

I recently got the "open tray" error. But I found a place that will replace the drive for $60 with a 90 day warranty. :bowdown:

on my second one. had the first one for ~3 years, it e74'd over the holidays, haven't bothered getting it fixed.
E74 is a hard drive error. I just bought a used hd from game stop and it fixed the problem.

That was after my xbox bounced off of the concrete from a ~3 foot fall. Never had a problem with it after that. Sold it to a friend and it's still going strong. It's 3 years old now.

e74 is not hard drive related. You're thinking of e68.
