0021 DVD Drive Time out - This Can be caused by problems with a firmware flash. This is also speculated to sometime be caused by a problem with the south bridge chip set on the motherboard.

If this continues, you will need to contact Microsoft for a mother board replacement procedure.

Start up. Button is turning green and then red and place where you put the disc it will not open


Is this is an Xbox 360 (you never specified the console, but red and green are typically Xbox light colors), then the red lights mean that something is wrong with your console and it is unable to function. The best option at this time is to take it somewhere to be repaired, or to replace the console.

If you would like to try to troubleshoot and repair it yourself, this site has instructions or reading error codes on screen and how to get the xbox to display secondary error codes if there is none displayed on screen. Other links on this page also have tutorials for possibe fixes for the Xbox 360: http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/Xbox-360-error-codes.htm

I have the 0102 code on my Xbox 360 can this be fixed and how?


The XBox error code 0102, is an error in the digital backbone or the CPU or GPU or RAM. This error is generally caused by a cold solder connection between the main board and the GPU. I would recommend calling microsoft about fixing it.

Screen reads,system error and has a trouble code of E 74 What could be the problem?


The Xbox 360 e74 error is a rather common problem on Xbox consoles, with similar roots to the now infamous red ring of death problem.
The e74 issue is actually caused by a problem with the scaler (ANA or HANA) chips located next to the graphics processor inside your Xbox 360.
It is believed that the error with the scaler video chip which causes the e74 error on your Xbox 360 is caused by overheating. This is also the cause of other errors such as the no video problem, as well as red lights in the power ring of an Xbox console.

To fix the Xbox 360 e74 code, there are a few steps you need to take-
1. Firstly, leave this article open, go to your Xbox 360 console and then remove the AV cable. Blow any dust out of it, then re-insert it snugly back into the console until a clicking is heard. Power on your console again and see if the problem has been fixed.
2. If that does not work, borrow another AV cable (get one off a friend or family member, or from your local video game rental shop) Try using this one in your Xbox 360.
3. If replacing the AV cable does not work, then you will have to repair the scaler chip and graphics processor inside your Xbox in order to fix the e74 problem. To do this, you will need an Xbox 360 repair guide, which will contain the video instruction files you need to be able to fix your console properly. You cannot fix the e74 yourself without one.
It is important to note that most Xbox repair guides focus on fixing the "red ring of death". However, the process for repairing the e74 will also be covered in the same guide as well, as it is extremely similar.

Xbox E 73 error


Hi Brett,

FYI. the 3yr extended warranty only applies for the 3RED LIGHTS and E74 issues only..if the console is already in the service center,you dont have to worry anymore,microsoft technicians will surely work hard to get it fixed. just wait 2-3weeks for the whole repair process,and you& your son will enjoy playing xbox in no time. :-)

My xbox 360 has frozen,and all it says is E74. How do I fix this?


Your machine has succumbed to the RROD RED RING OF DEATH error.

The Xbox 360 e74 is one of the many types of Xbox error codes that can affect your console at any given time. Thousands of Xbox 360 consoles worldwide are affected by these various errors, and one of the most common of them is the e74 Xbox error, which is currently affecting your console, as well as preventing you from gaming on it. Today you are going to learn what causes the Xbox e74 problem, as well as whether you can fix it yourself.

The e74 Xbox error's principal cause is overheating, due to excess heat causing damage to various components, and eventually major malfunctions in the hardware of your console. Why is this heat able to build up and cause damage that leads to the Xbox 360 e74 error? This is actually due to cramped case design and a lack of cooling devices such as fans and heat sinks. Although overheating is ususally a problem for all electronic devices, the Xbox 360 does seem to suffer particularly badly from this issue.

Although you could fix your Xbox e74 problem by sending your Xbox 360 back to Microsoft for repair, the best method you can actually employ is to fix your Xbox yourself.
Here's why-
* You will be without an Xbox 360 console for at least a couple of weeks if you send your console away for repair. Why put up with this when you can fix the Xbox 360 e74 issue yourself in a matter of hours?
* If your warranty has expired then you will have to pay to have your console repaired, and although there is a cost involved in purchasing the necessary items for Xbox repair, you will still save around $100 by carrying out the repairs yourself.

If you want to fix the Xbox e74 error yourself, then you will need to invest in a video repair guide. These come in digital download format, and can be purchased online for a reasonable price (you won't need to spend anything over $30) You really need to buy one if you want to fix your Xbox 360, as written instructions just aren't detailed enough.

To ensure that you get the best deal, purchase one that covers ALL Xbox error codes (many only offer information about the "red ring of death", so you need to carefully read the sales page to ensure that it teaches you how to fix any type of Xbox error) Look also for a money-back guarantee, free customer support and free video samples to that you can check the quality of the product.

Some have used damp towels to bring the temp down - but ultimately, the proper repair entails disassembly of the xbox - down to the processor - removing the old hard thermal paste compund, adding new thermal paste, and re-assembling.

There are MANY guides and videos you can search google for to crack open your 360 case if you are up to the challenge.
