I got my 360 back a few days ago. It now works no 3lod anymore, but there is still a problem which I had before sending it. It needs to be plugged in for a couple minutes before I can actually power it up. Does it sound like it could be a capicitor or something, and do you think it could get worse?

Did they send you a different system??
I have sent 6 back in the last 2 months and all are different systems than I sent in...
If so, then the problem is most likely your power supply. Use a friends power brick to verify. If needed they have good used one power supplies on ebay for about 35-40$$ shipping included.
Well it's not the power supply or power brick. I've tried this ps on another console as well as a different ps on my personal console. I think it's the same console, I thought I wrote or recorded the serial number somewhere but I can't remember now. Anyway, like I said it still works and it's only an issue if the ps is unplugged for any length of time. I'm just concerned that if it is a capacitor or something, other parts might be working harder. But I do get an extra year on my warranty once it's been fixed is my understanding correct? Is that for any failure, or just the 3 rlod again?
Oh and I have another console I did the xclamp on but I would like to add extra cooling and what not, could someone direct me to the thread for fan mods or fan shroud mods...etc Thanks.

They never stated any extra warranty on my units. There is still the 3 years 3rrod. I know people that got theirs back and dick read errors 4 months later and M$ would not fix it for free.
After X-clamp At least do the Fan Hood Mod.

If you don't want to do electrical stuff, get a "The Cooler" fan and lay your system flat (horizontal). It has a on/off button and after cooling is as important as gameplay cooling! Eject the disc after game play and leave the system on for 10 minute to lower temp to standby. Then leave cooler fan of for 15 minute after system shut down. Fast temp change cause the stress cracks in solder. The cooler and standby cooling should be done on your M$ repaired system also.
