Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

E80 CODE WITH ONE RED LIGHT ON XBOX 360

My son has had his 360 since Oct 2007. A few weeks ago, he got one red light in the lower right quadrant and an E80 error. Everything I can find on the internet relates this issue to updating to the NXE. I also find postings mentioning the R6T3 resistor. The resistor has not been removed at any time and no downgrading has occurred on this box. The 360 was bought brand new, no refurb. I have contacted Microsoft but it is like talking to a wall.

Can anyone help?

    how do i get to the settings and all that if i cant leave the error screen, i been workin on this problem for almost 3 hours. this is bs. this is not a problem with the resistor, its a problem with a virus that comes with the NXE update. SO if no one can find a way to fix this, i say throw out your xbox and get a playstation. i stand by xbox cause it is a cool console but it has far to many problems that MS refuse's to aknowledge. playstation plays good, has a 7% failure rate and while xbox has 1 graphic processor(GPU) the ps3 has 8 GPU's. its so strong that they dont have to release a new console for another 15 years and they are currently working on Virtual Reality.

    Make sure your A/V (or component) cables and power cable are connected properly. Take your hard drive off and turn the system on, then if it's fine turn it off, replace the HDD, and turn it on again.

    if that dont work try this


    --==Console Reset Codes==--
    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.


    So i tried all of this bs and o0o guess what i cant get the e80 error off the the effin screen

It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.
If that doesn't work try this link http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/927749-xbox-360/67807343

Well your disc is officially garbage because it's scratched beyond repair. Don't bother trying to fix your game disc. Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your game to them. They will give you good money for it.
