The E86 error code is a hard drive error, remove your harddrive and try powering up. If it works without it, try reformating the xbox 360 harddrive.
THIS WILL DELETE EVERYTHING:
Settings > System Info and press Y, Up (left stick), Down (left stick), X, A.


If that does not work you may need to purchase a new harddrive, you can get them online, or in most stores.

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!

Where light is for controller port four its flashind red and xbox will noy work?


hi, this is what that code is telling you, also do you have a code on the screen when switched on let me know if you do if you dont ill tell you at the end of this post how to get an error code so i can tell you exactly what the problems is.

Section 4 is flashing red
- Hardware Failure
/ \
\ /

The Specific Type of hardware failure can be determined by the error code displayed on the screen.
If the screen is blank or you would like additional information follow the instructions for determining the secondary error code in the section below


here is how to get the secondary code for me.
The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code

* Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 1 red lights are flashing.
* Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
* The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code ( so 1 red light may be lit so write this down).
* Release the eject button and press it again.( it will then change the red lights and maybe 2 will be lit up write this down also)
* The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
* Release the eject button and press it again.
* The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
* Release the eject button and press it again.
* The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
* Release the eject button and press it again.
* The LEDs will go back to the 1 red flashing lights.

so what you need to do is this, when the 1 red light comes on hold down the little white sync button and keep holding it down all the time, now whilst your holding that little white button down on the front of xbox press the eject button but keep holding the white button down now write how many lights are lit up and this is the 1st number in the code, so keep holding the white button down dont let go of this white button then press and let go of the eject button again and write how many lights are lit up whilst still holding the white button down, now do this 4 times all together and you will end up with something like this written down
4402

once you have this four digit code send me a message back with the code then i can tell you exactly what the problem is and what you can do to try and solve the problem

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

A red light keeps flashing and the screen says error when it comes on


If you have a red light flashing then you have one of the following: 1 red light e74, 2 red lights - overheating, 3 red lights GPU and the CPU, or 4 red lights you need to plug the av cable in.

For the 1, 2 , 3 red lights you can send it in to get it fixed or reapair it yourself with a good guide

One flashing red light.


usually with 1 red light errors, there will also be an error that shows on the screen like e73, e74, e75, etc. You will need to first get your secondary error code.

then enter either the e-code from the screen or the secondary error code into the repair guide

Console light it red and flashing


flashing red light usually means the display cable isnt working, otherwise it would give you an error code.
Have you tried a new display cable (thing that goes between console and tv). I'd give that a go.
