Hi,

The most important thing you can do for your xbox is to keep it completely clean of dust at all times, and make sure that it is in the open rather than in a closed cabinet so it stays cool. Heat is the most likely thing to damage the console over time, and an Xbox will get extremely hot in an enclosed environment.

Clean your game discs regularly, also. This will keep the lens of the disc drive clean and free of dust, so you will be less likely to have read problems due to dust in the future.

If you keep the console cool and clean, you are more likely to get more years of safe use out of it.

While playing xbox360 the picture goes in and out


Thats the first place to look, If you are using the component cable with the HDTV TV switch, try flipping it back and forth.

if that corrects the problem great, but, it might be an idea to replace the cord at some point in the future

If it doesnt, i suspect you have another issue coming, if its under three years old, before it happens invest in the extended warranty

3 red lights on xbox360 and screen problems


Hi there!

The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console. The main thing that causes the 3 red lights to start flashing is because of overheating and as the motherboard within the console takes more heat it actually warps and bends until the solders become loose.

Once this happens you will receive the 3 red lights. Even before you get the 3 red lights you may have noticed your games freezing and this is caused in the same way, by overheating. As the chips take more heat they shut off to prevent lasting damage, although they can only do this a number of times until you get the Xbox 360 3 Red Lights.

To fix the problem you need to stop the level of heat the motherboard takes and you can do this in a number of ways, but it will involve opening up your Xbox and working on it. In addition, you could always send your Xbox back to Microsoft as they are offering free repair for this error, you will just need to wait 3-4 weeks that’s all.

Cheers!

THREE RINGS


I'm sorry to hear that this is the fourth time this has happened, but you have just been unlucky. Like everyone else who has experienced the Red Ring of Death, your system is too damaged for you to fix. You will have to contact Microsoft and have it replaced. You can either call 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269) or go to their support page (posted at the bottom) and click 'repair console.' Again, terribly sorry this has happened to you and hope that it doesn't happen again.

When i turn my xbox on it say on the screen e74 an one red light is on


e74 refers to an error with either the GPU or your av cable

first try switching out av cables if that doesnt work then send it back to microsoft for repairs

if you want to try to fix it yourself try this

Since your AV cable is good, then it definately is your Scaler chip. The only way that you can fix this is if you take your xbox360 apart and resolder the GPU to the motherboard. Now theres about 50 different tutorials out there on how to take your case apart but I found that this tutorial is the best... its straight forward and includes pictures:

http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/Xbox-360-Disassembly.htm

Okay, your xbox is apart. Next, your going to have to remove the x-clamps and GPU. Then you are going to have to resolder the GPU to the motherboard by overheating your GPU. llamma also has a really good write up on this as well. They also sell the tools that you will need, and the washers and bolts you will need.

http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/ring_of_light_x-clamp_fix.htm

Once you've resoldered your GPU, then you might want to consider installing a CPU fan on your outside case to prevent your xbox from overheating in the future. As of now, you cannot buy the new GPU heatsinks which have the heatpipe technology, so this is the best thing to do for the voided xbox's.

Xbox360 live + need for speed carbon


why this is happening is because your hard drive may have a corrupted file inside that game but your not screwed i have a solution :) while it is a crappy process you have to call the support center 1-800-4myxbox and tell them exactly whats happening they should tell you to go to the dashboard then system hard drive and you type a button code much liek a cheat which will let them observe your consoles memory code as you play so when you turn it on and it freezes they see what code is making freeze and delete it. i had to do this but when it froze again my console got the three red lights lets hope this doesnt happen to you. i have some things to try at hom though try unplugging your ethernet cable and all other cords then re-plugging them back in. if that doesnt work try re-setting your network connection, unplug modem and router for 3 minutes then re-plug in and let sit for another 3 minutes if this doesnt work call xbox support.
