Well, there goes my WL, lol.

I need to figure out what to do now. I have renters Insurance which covers current model replacements - I state it like that because I had my bike stolen that was valued around 599; I got on sale and it was about 4 years old. So they looked at a current model retail price and I was given like 950.

Soooo, my deductible is 250 - with the XBOX One S coming in at $299 - That is barely worth it; but I will file the claim simply for the chance that in their minds a "like for like" replacement would be the XBOX One X.

When I bought mine it was 499.99; day one release. They will ask for a receipt which will show that. So I might get lucky and get an X for $250 out of pocket.

Guess I'll be playing alot of Hearthstone this weekend or Fortnite on the PC.

    OMG, the POWER BRICK needed reset.

    I realized the power brick's fan and light weren't on and it was plugged in and would you believe the Microsoft website had a how-to reset the power brick.

    Did that, the light came back on and its working!!!!

    Resetting the power brick fixes most problems FYI.

    I just noticed it's little fan wasnt running and figured if I could replace that it'd be a heck of alot cheaper. Then I realized it's power light wasn't on. A little trouble shooting and googling and I'm 2-1 in WL haha.
