    This i have seen before and it tells me the machines is displaying the signs of lead free solder failure (85%sure). you could strip the machine down and replacing the x-clamps at the same time do the heatgun fix if you dont have access to an IR oven. To me it will just get worse and will definately need the x-clamps replacing AND the solder re-seating. what error code comes on screen? hope that helps in some way Linda

E68 error? If so, turn off system, take off hard drive, put hard drive back on (good and tight) and turn system back on. Repeat a few times, sometimes it takes me 3 or 4 tries.

When I turned on my system, it had system error contact xbox customer support. There is a red light flashing on the bottom right, around the power button. I don't know what to do. Please help.


Some of us suddenly when we turn on our Xbox 360 console one day we got one red light flashes on the ROL (Ring of Light) around the Xbox 360 power button, and we got an Error message appearing on the TV screen "System error" also might occur with any error code like E66, E67, E68, E71, E74 or E77, all the same.
systemerrore74.jpg
When you get any of these messages appearing on your screen with one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.

oneredlight.jpg
So, first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more.

If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you.

The Xbox 360 console might even keep giving you the same error code even after you remove the hard drive so it will then appear to be a fault with your Xbox 360 console not the hard drive & also in a case like this we need to contact Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the console.

The xbox360elite the red light flashes and e68 comes up on the screen with different language on the tv screen is also showing.


E68 means that you have a bad hard drive. Take out your hard drive and turn the unit on to confirm. Once this is done just buy a new hard drive and your good to go! Or now Microsoft just released where you can use a Flash drive :]

1 flashing red ring


The lower-right quadrant of the Ring of Light flashes red on the front of your Xbox 3602.gif console. You also receive the following error message in multiple languages on your television screen or monitor:
System Error2.gif. Contact Xbox Customer Support. This message begins with an error code in the format "Exx," where xx is a two-digit number.

The following indicator will flash on and off repeated on the front panel of your Xbox 360 console:
Collapse this imageExpand this image 1rol.gif
If one red light is flashing and you receive a different error message2.gif or error code than those that were described previously or you don’t receive an error message or code, your console may be experiencing a different issue. In this case, see "References/links."

This problem occurs when your Xbox 360 console experiences a hardware failure.

  1. Turn off your console, disconnect and reconnect all cables, and then turn on your console.
  2. If an Xbox Hard Drive2.gif is attached to your console, turn off your console, and then remove the Xbox Hard Drive. Turn on your console, and test for the error. If the error does not reoccur, turn off your console and reattach the Xbox Hard Drive. Run alternate additional tests by having the Xbox Hard Drive connected and disconnected to see whether the error occurs only when the Xbox Hard Drive is connected.

System Error. Contact Xbox Customer Support"
  3. If an Xbox Memory Unit (MU) is plugged in to your console, turn off your console, and then remove the Memory Unit. Turn on your console again, and test for the error. If the error does not reoccur, turn off your console and reinsert the MU. Run alternate tests by having the MU connected and disconnected to see whether the error occurs only when the MU is connected.
  4. If this problem continues to occur, contact Xbox Customer Service. Note If the agent cannot help you resolve this problem, you must return your console to Microsoft for repair.
