Thread: 360 not registering on MS support?


Forum: Xbox 360 Forums

I registered my banned 360 to see if I could send it off to them for repair in case it breaks and I need a new one. I did that successfully. I got a 3 rrod machine from someone at work but the MS support won't let me register it and says I need to phone them. The console is not modified in any way except for x-clamp and a few cooling mods. Anyone know why I can't register it? My plan was to register the serial number with the unbanned console, swap the boards, and send it off.

    Sounds like it's been registered before mate, and if you call them and register it in your name they wont cover it under the 3 year red lights warranty as it only covers the first registered owner.
