Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

My xbox 360 has the third player light flashing red.

I have had my xbox 360 for under a year and it already has the third player light flashing red. On the screen it says E 74. I was playing it about ten minutes before i turned it on again and got the fashing light.
Ive been told that the problem is that it overheats, or its the a/v cable or its the hard drive. But it was cold and i tried 3 of my friends a/v cables and started the xbox up w/o the hard drive in. none of this helped. I dont know what to do from here, help would be greatly appreciated!!

You should still be under warranty, follow the above url, and get a repair request in, it should be no charge.

E 74 displayed on sceen when xbox is switched on. 1 red light flashing. Please help


This is caused by overheating.

MS warranties any red lights for 3 years, if it's outside the warranty you can send it in to a third part repair place or to MS (although MS is expensive).

3 red lights box under 3 years old


RED LIGHT OF DEATH!
The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 motherboard or power supply.You can test power supply with a voltmeter from power supply wires to the connections on the motherboard. If no power or low power, the supply is bad. If there is plenty of power, then motherboard could have bad capacitor or chipset on it causing the problems. You can test those with an ohmmeter to see which component is not the same.

When i turn my xbox 360 on one light in the bottem right corner flash red and it reads E 74 error but when i unplug the xbox from the t.v it doesnt flash red, does this mean we need a new wire


one red light means the video card is dead not the cord and unfortunately cannot be fixed and to make it worse this error is not covered by warranty, if you want it under warranty tel microsoft wen you ring that it has 3 red flashing lights (RROD) not 1 as this error is covered by warranty

Well when I turn on my xbox 360 the third part flashes red.


hello.
CAUSE The three flashing red lights may indicate that your Xbox 360 console has experienced a hardware failure. Please read the letter that discusses warranty changes for three flashing red light hardware failures. 

MORE INFORMATION 

If you suspect that you are experiencing this issue, you can submit a console-repair request online. However, before you submit your request, we ask that you first try the following two steps to verify that you are indeed experiencing this issue: 

1. When you turn on the console, examine the light on the power supply. The power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the Ring of Light flash red. If the power supply light is not green, please follow the steps that are listed in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles: 

906101 Xbox 360: The power supply light is red 906102 Xbox 360: The power supply light is orange 906103 Xbox 360: The power supply light is not illuminated 

2. Turn off the console. Wait 10 seconds, and then turn on the console again to see whether the symptom occurs again. If your console continues to display the three flashing red lights, your console may have to be repaired. For information about how to start the repair process online, please visit http://www.xbox.com/support, and then click Console Repair in the upper-right section of the Web page. 

Note: The online console repair service is currently not available in all countries or regions. 

If you would rather contact Xbox Customer Support directly, please visit http://www.xbox.com/support/contact for information about how to do this.
