This is a common fault with the 360, it says that its a "general hardware failure" which could mean anything
really. In truth its the lead free solder that cracks with so much heat and as a result the Xbox 360 fails
causing the 3rrod (3 red rings of death) or e74 etc
You will need to get a 3rrod repair kit or get someone to fix it for you, there are guides available on the
If your ring up microsoft and explain your problem without shouting at them, and your xbox has not been opened at all which leads to a warranty void they will fix it for your for free.
Dont forget to rate my solution :D
Make sure the switch on the 360 A/V cable is in the right position. Also unplug everything from the unit and plug it all back in again. From the reading I've done on tech issues the 360 has a lot of temporary issues like that.
microsoft has changed the warranty on the 360,my husband has sent in his pro 3 times in 2 yrs and he bought an elite had it 2 wks and had to send it in,if you call 1-800-469-9269 someone from xbox can help you,if you do have to send it you should get one free month to xbox live,he has all times he sent it in,even got a quick charge for the haveing to send in the elite
If the person that you bought it from on E-Bay had an HD Television. Then the Xbox console is set into HD from the Display options. If your TV is not HD, then It will not display. It can also be the other way around, if His TV is standard and yours is HD. Also try looking at the RCA's(The Part that plugs into the 360) And you will see a slider. Switch the slider, then turn it on. Tell me if that works, if Not, tell me and I will tell you what to press on your 360 controller to set the other menu. Hope this helps.
