I got one red light in the bottom corner and an error message with e74 i checked the guide for wat it was related to and it said it was my hard drive but i unplugged my hard drive and the problem is still...

  • here is info on the red ring of death that i know about and the solutions
  • 1 red light means the e74 error
  • 2 red lights means the xbox is overheating and was shutted down automatically
  • 3 red lights means hardrive error
  • 4 red lights means that something is unpluged
the problem is not in the hardrive itself, but its that the hardware scaler chip is damaged. now, microsoft is giving a full refund to people owning units with this error or so i hear. so you can rebuy a new unit payed by microsoft and your problem is solved

1 red light

1 red light means general hardware failureand it is pretty much the same as 3 red lights but it is has a slightly different problem. if you are under warranty send it of to microsoft. they will repair it for free. if not buy a new warranty for 60 dollars.

Red Lights, Sounds and scratching discs

Allright the four red lights is an over heating error that MS could have taken care of. When you moved the system from being layed down to standing up if the CD was still moving you probably scratched and or broke your game inside the system. This is not covered under there warranty you will probably be stuck with a bill from MS for around 140$. sorry I hope this helps.
