Basically it comes down to this. Error 16 has to do with not finding the menu setting with which you can set the clock of the hdd. This happens to a lot of people that erase their hdd (original/upgraded) or MS dashboard files and after that they don't immediatly install the hdd but leave the xbox without power longer than 5 hours.

It's all about the hdd can't find the menu with which it can set the clock. This is mostly because the xbox hdd is empty (you removed dashboard or fux0red it via ftp). The problem arises when xbox searches for menu to set clock with, can't find it and voila: error 16. Well read on please!

So you have an error 16 huh? Don't worry "nothing" is broken!

You have an xbox hdd that is locked. And normally you can boot in original and modded mode. Retail or upgraded doesn't matter. You start playing around with xboxdash.xbe etc. using ftp programs. While doing this you "accidently" remove your MS dashboard and also your alternate dashboard (Evox, etc.) so there is no dash anymore on the xbox hdd.

You end the ftp session and after that you shut off your xbox. Normally when you would start up again it gives you an error 13/14 ( no dashboard found). No worries with a slayer Evox cd (and a hardmod), all is ok. BUT this is only WITHIN 3 hours or so.

This is because the internal clock of the xbox will only be kept alive by the capacitors for only 3 or 4 hours. So when you leave your xbox unplugged from electricity for over 5 hours after you have played with the .xbe's AND you have removed your (ms and evo-x) dash from your xbox than you are fux0red. Why do you ask?

Why can't I boot from disc?

Its as follows Xbox starts booting==> (almost 1st thing a xbox does is) searches for internal clock==> doesnt find internal clock because there hasn't been any electricity on the xbox for 5 hours so battery that kept clock alive is empty and clock is gone==> searches for the proper dashboard menu to set clock with ==> doesnt find msdashboard or evo-x dashboard menu becuz you have removed it from the hdd for whatever reasons you had==> xbox gives error 16: cannot set clock.

So what do you do about it? Two options!

1. There are some bios'es around that allow the chip to boot past the clocksetting. (do a search!). So how do you get that bios on your chip because you cant boot to a flash program or something? Well you need to have an external flasher.

It seems the m8 bios will take care for you of booting past the clocksetting. Or use the latest Xecutor bios


2. This is the more easy and newbie friendly strategy
-Get a friend with a modded xbox.
-Unlock his hdd with eeprom management from a slayer evo-x cd.
-Than, place his hdd in your xbox.
-Boot with your chip on.
-Now the xbox DOES find a dashboard when you boot in original mode and you can set the time in the msdashboard clock settings.
-Shut off xbox and remove your friends hdd
-PLace his hdd back in his xbox and lock it again
-Install your hdd
-(clock has been set) So boot up with slayer cd.
-Install normally whatever you wanna install
-lock hdd

Tip

Microsoft XBox Live and the 2Wire HomePortal


source: http://support.2wire.com (please visit!)

The Xbox Live service is compatible with all current and previously shipped versions of 2wire software. Simply connect your Xbox unit to the 2wire network and log on to the Xbox Live service.
If you are experiencing problems connecting to the XBox Live service, follow the troubleshooting procedures provided in your XBox Live documentation or XBox Live CD sleeve.
If you continue to have trouble, here are some additional troubleshooting tips:

1. Reconnect your Xbox to the 2wire Homeportal


Turn off the Xbox and unplug your 2wire HomePortal from the electrical outlet.

Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Local Ethernet port on the 2wire HomePortal.

Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox console.

Plug your 2wire back into the electrical outlet and wait for all lights to turn solid green before proceeding.

Turn on your Xbox console (without a disc in the tray).

From the Xbox Dashboard, choose Xbox Live.

In the network settings, test the connection. The connection test should pass.


2. Create custom 2wire Homeportal firewall settings

Although a custom firewall setting should not be required, manually configuring your 2wire firewall ensures that it is not preventing your connection to the Xbox Live service.

HomePortal software version 3.x

From your computer, open a browser and type: http://homeportal into the address line to access your 2wire configuration pages. Alternately, you can type: http://gateway.2wire.net

Under the list of Connected Devices you should see a device labeled "unknown device". This is the Xbox unit.
Click on "View your home network" link in the same box.
Click on "Edit firewall settings" next to the unknown device.
In the lower left-hand corner of this screen, click on "Add a new user-defined application."
Enter "Xbox Live" for the Application Name.
Select Protocol "TCP".
In the port "From:" and "To:" boxes enter 53. Do not change the other settings.
Click on Add.
Repeat these same steps for the following ports and protocols:

Port Protocol
53 UDP
88 TCP
88 UDP
3074 TCP
3074 UDP

Click on "Done" in the lower right corner.
Under "Select a Host Computer" select the "unknown device".
Under "Select the Application(s)" click on "User-defined."
Select "Xbox Live" in the box on the left and click "Add."
Click on "Done" in the lower right corner.

HomePortal software version 2.x

From your computer, open a browser and type: http://homeportal into the address line to access your 2wire configuration pages.
Click on the "HomePortal Upgrades" button and if you have an upgrade available, download the upgrade. If you do not have an upgrade available, continue to next step
Under the list of Connected Devices you should see a device labeled "unknown device". This is the Xbox unit.
Click on "Advanced" link in the same box.
In the lower, left-hand corner of this screen click on "Add an application" link. Enter "Xbox 1" for the application Name.
Select Protocol "TCP"
Leave the Protocol setting as "Other".
In the port "From:" and "To:" boxes enter 53. Do not change the other settings.
Click on DONE on the "Add Application" page.
Repeat the same steps for the following ports and protocols. You will need to create a new name for each entry:

Xbox 1 53 UDP
Xbox 2 88 TCP
Xbox 3 88 UDP
Xbox 4 3704 TCP
Xbox 5 3704 UDP

Click on DONE on the "Hosted Application" page when you are finished creating the list above.

That means you have no signal on programme number 1 and the screen aspect ratio is 16 by 9.
Select another channel or whichever one you normally use like AV to check the TV is OK.

Cant get the machine to balance service guy comes out with my dad at my house who is 70 years old and service guy tells him nothing is wrong . i leveled it out and it shakes the house and says uneven load...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW FRance @ 16:49 Sat afternoon- nothing on TV!

As the service guy says there is nothing wrong with the machine it must be that it is STILL not absolutely balanced.
Really rock it from each corner. If it rocks, even a little, from the right hand front corner then it is the foot underneath that corner which need to be adjusted downwards until it is TIGHT onto the floor then locked by the locking nut so that it cannot vibrate loose. If not this corner then the left hand side need adjusting.
The feet DO need to be very firmly on the floor- honest!

Best of luck,

I have an xbox the first one black with x on top it has just started to come up on the screen in a box saying your xbox need service can you help thanks


In the top left or right corner there will a number, eg 07, which means its a hard drive error which means the xbox is more or less stuffed as each hard drive for the original xbox is specific to the main printed circuit board.
Theres another symtom that tech's call FRAG lights. Where the lights Flash Red And Green, hence the acronym FRAG, if you are getting this symptom, theres a chance your xbox has died.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Hey Mr. Boswell,

You have discovered the problem that a large number of xbox 360 owners have discovered also and that is that they get a "system error" message on their screen or worst they get the three rings blinking on their 360. Its a very common problem with this kind of console and if you still have a warranty on your console I would seriously recommend you to contact Microsoft the maker of the xbox and explain to them your problem. They will no doubt have to take back and repair your defective xbox. visit xbox.com for support or call 1 800 469 9269. I really hope that helps

All you need to do, to correct this, is set your lens to highest F-stop number ( 16 or 22 ) and the FEE signal will disappear. Also note that you should lock this setting in ( on the side of the lens after you turned it to F 16/22) .
