    It is what is normally refered to as the circle of death. The lights around the power on switch. They were normally green. But now it is red only in the lower right hand corner around the power switch. Thanks.

    I have the same problem, with the red in the lower right of the circle. I contacted Microsoft and they said they would only fix it free of charge if the whole circle was red? What does it matter if the system wont work? Anybody have any luck on a replacement for no charge, since there was a three year warranty when I bought it in November of 2007?

    u have to sent it to microsoft and get a new 1

    u get the ring of death from the following reasons,

    1) the heat shrinks in the xbox have melted or warped.

    2) the main board has warped or burnt

    3) it way to hot and over heated.

    what u can do,

    send it to microsoft and get a new 1, call them, throw it in the trash after smashing it with a baseball bat and get something else.

    ok i have found the problem.

    thank XBOX-SCENE for the error codes,

    E74: There is high chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip near the AV cable connection) it can also be caused by a faulty AV cable so check that first. In some cases it is a problem with the GPU and may be repairable by doing the x-clamp replacement.

    then i will get back to u on what the error is and how u can fix it.

Take the Jag down and get a look at it and get it inspected. Cars tend to spring up on people like this. The light goes off, you check, you think it is fine. But later, it just so happens that it isn't.

I have VIBE bluetooth keyboard for iPad mini ( VE 1089) and can't find ON switch

yes the red charge light will only stay lit for just a little bit... then turn it on by pressing down above the words written "charge". You should be pressing and holding down on a dial with three semi circles above it (as szuravic stated). Press and hold down until you get the bluetooth and power button lit on blue. Then go to your settings and bluetooth.... "bluetooth keyboard" should pop up. Click on it and then it will ask you to enter a 4 digit code on your keyboard followed by the return key. Soon after you should be "connected". If you are fully charged (first time plugged in should be 12 hours.. then after 4 hours) then you can unplug. Hope that's helpful!!
