    Is the E74 error on the screen? If yes then it needs to be serviced either by Microsoft if under warranty or you can choose.

    Thanks

My xbox 360 console is having a problem. when i turned it on this morning it said there was an error. ONe light was flashing and it was red. my friend was talking to me about this before and he said it was...


The single red light is not the "ring of death" error. The "ring of death" error would give you 3 red lights. The single red light could mean many different things. Are you getting any kind of error code on the screen when you turn the xbox on? My suggestion would be to unplug everything from the power, remove the hard drive and wait a few minutes. After, plug the power back in (leave the hard drive out) and attempt to power it back on and see if the error reoccurs. If you get an error, check for error messages on the screen and post them here. Unfortunately with most Xbox errors you will need to send it to Microsoft for repair. How old is the Xbox?

Turn the console on, displays the xbox screen then screen goes off and a red light starts flashing on console, says system error


is this a single red light? if so, it is a E code error. if there are 2, it is a overheating problem. if its 3, it is a general system error which could be a number of things which you need to figure out the secondary error code to narrow down the problem.
to find the secondary error code:
1. after the red lights start flashing, hold down the "controller sync" button.
2. push the "eject" button 4 times and count the amount of red lights that flash. the red lights will begin to flash rapidly. secondary error codes are only 4 numbers. 1 light = 1, 2 lights = 2, 3 lights = 3 and 4 lights = 4.
after you get the code go to this website, and on the right hand side of the screen under "Xbox Repair Guide" select your PRIMARY error code (1,2,3 or 4 slow flashing red lights). then it will ask you to enter your SECONDARY error code, which is the one you discovered in the steps above.
this will give you a very narrowed down idea of what is wrong with your console, and will give us "questions answerers" a better idea on how to help ya out!

Updated system last night and this morning when i powered it on, it came on and worked fine for about 3 mins then it shut off with a flashing red light... now it wont start up at all...


Oh man thanks SONY, right?

Well you should try a video reset first and if that doesn't work then pull the hard drive out and try booting the console with no drive.

For the video reset: While the PS3 is off (solid red led) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

Let me know what happens.

X box360 flashing red light


Where is the flashing light? If it is at the 3rd position (bottom right) only, then the screen should say E68 error. If this is true, turn off the system, take off the harddrive, put the harddrive back on and turn the system back on. This happens to mine frequently. If its 3 of the lights, then you are out of luck my friend. Red Ring of Death...

Two left red lights


The two red lights is usually over heating. Make sure it has good ventilation and that the fan is working in the back. Let it cool down for a couple hours and try it again
