This could be a problem with the hard drive itself or the connection to it, try removing it and turning on the console, if it works without the hard drive get a new one, if it doesn't send it back to microsoft.

Sons Xbox 360 shows code E71 what does this mean or the ring of dead...?


hi E71 error code is listed as this fault
E71: Dashboard Error - Error within Xam.xex: possibly a dashboard update error, Check below in the "Console Reset Codes" for instructions. If that does not work there is no other solution and the console must be sent back to MS for repair

try using both of these reset procedures below to solve the problem, you may lose some game data so you need to bare that in mind.
if the below methods dont work then the chances are it has over heated and you will get the dreaded red ring of death.
if you look at the display where the on button is let me know how many lights you have as this is also an error code.


Clear All Installed Game Updates and Console Cache

1. Go to the "system" blade
2. Select "memory"
3. Press Y on the HD symbol
4. Press X,X, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X
5. A message will appear saying: "Do you want to perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage devices?"
6. Select Yes

Clear Any Failed system updates that cause the console to error.

1. With the console off, press and hold the sync up button (the small white one)
2. While holding the sync button press the power button to turn on the console
3. Continue to hold the sync button until the Console has booted up completely.
4. During the boot process the console should clear any failed updates, allowing you to use it normally.

let me know how you get on ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

When i switched on i got a system error message E 79 can you help me


E79 = Hard drive Faulty or dirty connection to the motherboard. You can send it in to Microsoft and have them fix it. If you are handy enough you can fix it your self. The down fall is you will have to buy the guide to do it.
Here is where you can get the guide..

Xbox 360 displays error E 79 on the screen and flash code 1433. Can't find anything about this can anyone help?


E 79 is a hard drive failure I do believe. Will the unit start up if you remove the HD, without the error code?? Take it off before you power it up.
