    i have the exact same problem but way worse. the screen is fuzzy in the game and some games (gta IV) the colour is terrible, i can barely even see anything except red spots. plus the shadeng is super pixely. i have a bad feeling it is the GPU. you claimed that you had a solution, could you share that with me?

    Loads with a wierd red dot screen followed by "Fuzz" that looks like snow (though very annoying) on the Halo 3 map Avalanche.

From the description you stated it sounds like the following error code

E74: AV cable error... There is a problem with the AV cable, try using a different AV cable. If the cable is known to be working then there is a 90% chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip connected directly to the AV cable) in rare cases it is the GPU.

  1. Try restarting the console.
  2. If restarting the console does not resolve the behavior, follow these steps:
    • Turn the console off.
    • Unplug all the power and AV cables from the console.
    • Unplug the power cord from the wall socket.
    • Firmly reconnect all the cables.
    • Turn on the console.
  3. Also examine the lights on the power supply. When you turn on the console, the power supply light should illuminate green
try that and if nothing works I have more to follow.

1 ring in right hand corner of four rings is red

If the red light on the bottom right of the light cluster? If so, that means there is a hardware failure. Are any error codes displayed on the screen (should be an E followed by a two-digit number)? If so that can further help me determine what the problem is.

Flashing red light on the bottom right of the ring and an error code 73 picture on the screen

Hi,Turn on unit until the red light flashes and the error code(E 73) shows up on the screen. Next insert toothpicks in the back of the console(while unit is running) into the cooling fans, this is to suppose to overheat the console and start two red lights flashing. Turn off console when this happens(unplug all cords from console) and turn the system back on.
This solution will fix your problem for sure. Thank you!

One red part on the ring, bottom right, what can be done?

Usually with one red light an error code or "E code" will be displayed on the TV screen. The most common is E74 a GPU/HANA chip related ( graphics problem). These errors are a little tougher to fix then 3 Red Rings. First I'd check to see if you are still covered under the warranty here.
If you are not covered by warranty and don't feel like giving MS more of your money we can repair your Xbox for you. Our website is here.
If you'd like to repair it yourself check out this site.
Keep in mind you will need to reball the solder joints to fix one red light in most cases... X-clamp replacement will not suffice. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Xbox nxe freezes when playing, no red lites just freezes and screen gets fuzzy

Make sure your game isn't dirty.  You might be on the verge of the red ring of death.  See if Microsoft will replace this thing under warranty.

Red flashing light on bottom right on 360 elite (e73 error)

X-clamp Fix. Also make sure you have all four heat patches attached to your memory chips. If you don't have any buy some. They sell them on the net.

360 not working

That means that its overheating! Microsoft has offered an extended warenty on these types of situations, call them and they should service the issue for you. in the mean time, try removing anything from the sides of the 360 and make sure that it has lots of room to breath. also take a cloth and wipe off all the dust from the unit, as that can help quite a bit.

Games freeze and the screen goes fuzzy after ten minutes

If your system is under warranty, I would try and get it RMA'd. If not there are plenty of services out there that offer xbox 360 repair for 50-70 dollars. I have used this one before when my system got the red ring of death.

Fast turn around and my xbox360 has been working like a champ for over a year now.

1 redlight flashes clearly red at bottom right hand side of the power ring,and 2 other dim red lights are flashing,only the 1 in the bottom right is bright happened 2weeks ago but i tryed it...

Do you get an error message on your tv screen? 1 flashing red light means there is a hardware failure such as your DVD drive hard drive, dashboard error ect. Not much can be done about this issue besides having microsoft fix it.
