I spoke with MS and even though I bought this 11/1/06 (my 2nd one after the Fall update bricked my 1st brand new one, btw) they said it was out of warranty. I guess they go by manufacture date (4/28/2006) so in order to get warranty service I have to fax my receipt so they can update the warranty status.
After finding my receipt it turns out the store has a 90 day return/exchange policy and since this equals the MS warranty, I figure may as well just return it at the store for a new one!!!
The clerk does not seem surprised when I bring in my bricked 360 asking if it had red lights and I say yes, he just seems annoyed at the console and I get my new one manufactured 5/29/06.
Hope this one goes the distance!
