Xbox repair question

Anyone have any idea how much it would cost to repair a Xbox? It's not totally dead, but I do think the lens is slightly out of alignment. It'll play some games, but not alot.

M$ charges a 100 bucks regardless of what is wrong with it.

Oohhhh... Sounds like a challenge!

I've already bought another new one. I was just curious how much it is to get the old repaired so I can make some money back.

you will have to replace the dvd drive... and the only ones you can use unless it is modded are the stock drives... and they go for about 80-120 bucks on ebay....


its cheaper to buy a new one than to fix it.... or just mod the hell out of it... you can use a standard dvd reader if you mod the bitch LOL

its wrong, but you can always go buy a new one from toys.r.us or somewhere and take the broken one back to them. ( saying that you just bought it and it doesnt work right.)
