I have 2 xboxs I need repairing.

I would like to go to a shop rather than let individuals fix them.

Where would you recommend?

Errors are RROD on a Premium and E74 on an Elite

danny mate the E74 is easily fixed by opening ur xbox up and swapping the x clamp at the back of the heat sink for some bolt and washers. i used roofing bolts and hacksawed them down to 10 ml lengh. they r the only bolts u can really get hold of locally to do this. but it will void ur warranty if u still have it in warranty. which i take it u dont or u would send it off.

any reputable pc repair shop should have thermal heatsink paste in stock if they build pc for Sale and roofing bolts are available from almost any diy or builders merchant,but at this time on a sturday you are probably left with pc world and b&q or wickes lol

What? someone was actually willing to look at a phone there?
Everytime someone I know has been there it's always been a case of "sorry the guy who does phones isn't here, come back later" And when he finally does show up he doesn't do that model (no matter what phone it is).

b&q and wickes dont sell the right size washers or bolts u need. they sell evry other size but the size u need. roofing bolts r an exact fit. but they r like 10 times too long so just hacksaw them down to 10mm. nd the heatsink is good from maplin. get a silver based one. works abit better and costs about 7.99. i think the size of the bolts is something 5's can't rememba exactly but roofing bolts r an exact fit dimension wise.
