Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Error E68. Ive recently had an E68 problem on my Xbox 360 Elite. Ive called xbox support, which I might add was no help. I was basically told to purchase a new harddrive . ( 150$ a pop) What Im wondering is will this happen again? My xbox is only a year old and Ive only played maybe 10 games. I really dont want to spend the money if this happens again. I especially dont want to have to buy a whole new console. (400$) Do you think it wise to buy the 120gb hardrive only to have it happen again? If indeed it will.

Gives me an error E 68 what is that? New xbox is only 10 months old.


The e68 error on your Xbox 360 is caused by a hard drive/HDD problem, much like all of the problems in the "e6x" family of error codes on the Xbox 360 platform. It can be caused by an internal connection error with the hard drive, a general failure of the hard drive, or overheating of the hard drive. Basically, there is quite a large range of things that can cause the Xbox 360 e68 problem, which can make troubleshooting the issue slightly difficult.

The e68 error on your Xbox 360 is caused by a hard drive/HDD problem. It can be caused by an internal connection error with the hard drive, a general failure of the hard drive, or overheating of the hard drive. Basically, there is quite a large range of things that can cause the Xbox 360 e68 problem, which can make troubleshooting the issue slightly difficult.

To fix the e68 code on your Xbox 360 is to remove the internal hard drive and try playing your console without it. If it then works, then you can be sure that you can permanently fix the problem. If not, then you will have more serious issues on your console that will need to be checked over by Microsoft, as the e68 is generally believed to be related only to your console's hard drive/HDD.

Hope this helps.

The xbox360elite the red light flashes and e68 comes up on the screen with different language on the tv screen is also showing.


E68 means that you have a bad hard drive. Take out your hard drive and turn the unit on to confirm. Once this is done just buy a new hard drive and your good to go! Or now Microsoft just released where you can use a Flash drive :]

Xbox error e68, 1010


E68: Hard Drive Error... It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it, This can also be caused by a Hard Drive Eprom Error. Some also believe this might be caused by a problem with the fans. This error will normally require you to send the unit in for repair, due to the fact that, this is a basic internal connection breakdown.(cold solder break).The only know remedy to this issue, if you are not considering sending it in, is to locate all the solder breaks on the main board and hard drive connections bay,a nd re-solder all the bad connections you can find. Check the fans for there operational value as well.
