Nah never said anything like that

Was looking on youtube on how to fix it but that can make it worse if wrong. And worse of all, warrenty has run out so its gonna cost £60 But I think I get a £3 discount (YES! £3) for being a Live member (which costs £40 a year)

It's probably the crappy plastic they use to keep it in.

Have you tried it a few times? Ages ago someone posted how to fix it.

You need to melt the chip back into place, something like that.

Wrap it in Towels for 20mins.

It never fails!

As for the warranty, when did you buy it because they have a 3 year warranty for the RROD.
