Turn Off That XBox Now!!!

Looks like I needed a cord so I signed up.

Why couldn't they recognize they had a problem with their crappy Thomson drives & offer a replacement on those?

 

At the end of the signup I noticed they said something like "In the meantime, just be sure to turn off the xbox when not in use" so I imagine it happened when left on for extended periods.

Which reminds me: In the setting section of the xbox, you can set the auto-shut off, which is supposed to shut it off automatically after 2 hours of non-use. But I have never gotten it to work. Does "non-use" mean without a disk in the drive?'

Well this seals the deal about returning my "spare" xbox (Dec 2000) and getting a new one. My hompson drive on the spare is very picky with games. The trade in credit at EB is still pretty good (99 bucks).

 

This sounds like a great idea for your situation. If you have another Xnox you might as well get what you can for the spare one while it still has that value. Especailly considering the Xbox 2 is coming out this year, if you can live with one, go for it.

I will give props to MS for how they handled this. Even though I heard about the recall here I did get an email saying I had a xbox with defective cord. (I guess I registered my xbox, but don't remember doing it. lol)

I even got an email today saying my new cord has shipped.

 

Now if they would just send me a replacement DVD drive....... *holds breath.:thud

Just got home. Two packages from microsoft as i ordered one for my xbox and one for my brothers. One has a regular replacement power cord in a envelope. The other one is a small box which has another protection cable but its different. It has a big box on the end and has a test plug which you can test if the line is good. Whats the difference?
