E74 problem


E74 error code on your Xbox360 basically means a 'general hardware error'. You may also be getting the infamous 'red ring of death' as shown by three red lights around the power button. The most likely cause of this error is over heating.
Microsoft has extended their one year warranty to three years for this problem. I would call Microsoft Xbox support before trying anything else. Their number is (800) 469-9269.
If you are still covered by the warranty, they will send you a box to ship your Xbox360 to them, they will either repair or replace it, and send it back to you, and they will pay for the postage! Downside is that this can take at least three weeks.

My 360 has 3 rings the rings are red and it wont turn on


Hello,

The three red lights mean that your XBOX360 is experiencing hardware failure. This is caused by overheating of your XBOX. Contact Microsoft and have them fix the problem. They have given free extended warranty for three red light problems. If you have bought your xbox360 within 3 years, you're in luck.. They will fix your console for free...

Three red lights flashing


If this is your Xbox 360 console you are referring to, then you need a repair. If you are under your 3 year warranty from MS go to www.xbox.com/support to fill out a repair request, otherwise look for someone in your area that has experience repairing the Red Ring of Death.

My xbox360 has a red circle instead of a green circle theirfore will not work what can this be


Three flashing red lights around the Xbox 360 power button (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death"), represent an internal problem that requires service. Warning signs may include freeze-ups, graphical problems in the middle of gameplay, such as checkerboard or pinstripe patterns on the screen, and sound errors, and the console only responds to pressing the power button to turn it off.

This error code is usually caused by failure of one or more hardware components, although it can indicate that the console is not receiving enough power from the power supply, which can either be due to a faulty power supply or if the power supply cable is not fully inserted into the console.


Distinct from the General Hardware Failure is a similar-looking error warning where four red lights appear, in which case the console does not detect an AV cable is plugged in. The four lights can sometimes also be seen when power surges or very brief power outages occur while the console is running, in which the console needs to be unplugged and plugged back in again to reset the error. Two red lights appear when the system is overheated.

One flashing red light on xbox360 ( not red ring)


The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.
Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
All four lights flashing - 0
One light flashing - 1
Two Lights flashing - 2
Three lights flashing - 3

Once you get this code, go to: http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=484726
To get the reason for the code.

Red lights games wont load


Hi calleyne

Im going to take a huge guess here and say your problem resides with the xbox360 and the three red lights on the ring of light around the power button,

ok there are 2 options you can take,

one, you can call Microsoft for a repair box, the good thing about it is now they will still repair it if its out of warranty, the bad part about it is they charge $100 and it can take some time before you get another 360 from them,

two, you can open the xbox360 yourself and see whats wrong on the inside, **note that even if you do this you can still do option one** the main things you can check are the processor, heat sinks, the disk drives, and the gpu and the heat sink on top of it, i found that what was causing my first xbox360 to get the red ring was the heat sink over the processor was touching and was causing it to get super hot, but really all you should have to do is lift the heat sink off the processor and put some liquid coolant like you would on a pc and place it back, thats what i did at least.

Hope that helps ^-^

My xbox360 has three red flashings red lights?


Ok it sounds like 3 rings of death.. now this will sound crazy but it saved a few 360s that came through me...

Take 2 towels and wrap it around the 360 to make sure it can heat up (YES I AM SERIOUS) turn it on for 15 min and let it sit.. the 3 lights will blink.. after the 15min unwrap let it rest for 30 seconds then boot it up again.. somtimes thats all it needs let me know asap if it worked.. It worked on mine and saved my cod3 life!
