    n8live -

    16 - dashboard - Clock cannot be set.

    This means that the xbox cannot find the menu option in the default dashboard you have set(if it soft/hardmodded) to set the time.

    This happens when people first get there xbox modded and mess with files in the xbox and now have no dashboard, but before it could tell you there was no dash you left the xbox off too long(about 5 hours unpluged), the time settings reset and the xbox cant find its dash to ask you to set a time.

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.

Dear Sirs On my sons tv screen the message comes up 'system error' contact xbox support. A red light flashes at the bottom right hand corner. I was adviced over the phone that there is a problem and...

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 for support or call 1 800 469 9269. I really hope that helps

Disc Tray.

From what I no when the 360's light indicated flashes yellow it means it's overheated, try letting cool down.  I have had so many problems with my 360 and the cdrom drive is number 1.  When my drive started making all that noise i almost started to cry.  What i did was called the Xbox Helpdesk and they fixed the problem right away.  Call the Xbox Helpdesk at this number: 1-800-469-9269 (This munber will get you through faster).  if you ahve any more questions just let me know....
