The error 0010 is Southbridge related, this is the silver chip with the Xbox 360 logo.
0000 is also Southbridge related so this pretty much confirms that this is the part that is causing the problems.

In order to fix it first do the X-Clamp replacement, you can find a detailed tutorial here:

If this doesnt work continue with the Southbridge X-Clamp Fix which can be found here

If all else fails your last chance is to reflow the mainboard to restore the cold joints under the chip which will be causing these issues, how to do this is explained here

Last but not least some general information on the two error codes: 0000 and 0010

I hope this helps.

Kind Regards,

it sounds like your a/v cable has been crimped at some point so that when you play for a long time the heat in the cable causes a weak electrical arc, you may need a new one.

Go to your Internet Connection Settings, then Disable the Media Server thing and it should work, hopefully. I did it and I think it's working now, because I'm downloading the new 2.76 Update.

Cant play two players on fifa 09

Freezing playing offline two players or even one player.

First I thought the problem was related to the fifa09 DVD, and therefore I got a new one. That didn’t help. Then I got at new PSP3, and it didn’t make a difference. However, I found the solution:

Unfortunately I did two things at the same, so it’s not possible to say, what made the difference.

1. Dot not choose your local language (in my case Danish), but chose English (the next time you start fifa09 it can run with your local language)

2. Delete your saved data concerning fifa09
