Re: booting up

Same here the next day after using it - it didnt turn on right away. Need to unplug the extension and let the light turn off and plug it again to make it green and started it again.
Wonder why is that thing happening again.

My son has an Xbox 360 slim 4g. I bought him a 320 g Xbox HD. When I install it and turn the system back on I get the red ring and an e68 error. When I remove it it works fine. Please help thanks.I have...

This is called the red ring of death, what I have researched try taking all the memory devices out (hard drive, any usbs, the expansion memory etc...) turn the Xbox on wait for it to boot up once booted turn it back off, make sure all connections for the memory devices are clean reconnect the memory devices to the Xbox and turn it on this should get rid of the RRod error 68.

Xbox starts up but will not boot up and the screen is blank the 4 rings do not come on but the middle green power light comes on any suggestions???

If you are using HDMI, the TV must be on and turned to the correct input before the xbox will fully power up. Also, try connecting a controller to it if that fix did not work. As a final resort, contact Microsoft by calling 1-800-4MY-XBOX.

Error Code 0020

First, my xbox would have one red light and E 74. Then when I opened it up and booted it I got three red lights and 0020. I took out the motherboard, replaced the heatsink compound and did the x-clamp fix, but I couldn't get nylon washers in the right size so i just used no washers at all. Varying the tightness of various x-clamp bolts gave me 0020, 0003, 0002, 0001, or it would boot up to the black screen and I'd get E 74 again. Other times the xbox would almost immediately overheat. Most of the time I would get 0020, though. At that point, I gave up and I just tightened up the bolts replacing the x-clamp a certain way (nothing seemed special about it) and put the motherboard back in the case without testing it. I screwed everything back together, and since the heads of the bolts were thicker than they should have been, the motherboard didn't really sit flat in the metal cage. But i just screwed the motherboard back into the cage not to tight with the 9 small silver screws, which I would imagine put some stress on the mobo. Then I pu the rest of the case on and the 6 long screws, and once I had snapped everything back together I tried booting it up. To my great surprise it booted up fine! I played some halo 3 and it has booted up fine every time (3 times) since then
Many people have got this error You need to replace the xclamp and make sure there's extra pressure (less than half a turn) on the front right corner of the GPU. You can read more about xclamp replacement here.

Xbox 360 audio video problem

has it been flashed with xtreme firmware?

check the scart cable and make sure the switch is on the right setting (tv/hd)

when it was working did you put a game in and was you asked to update? if so you could have got a bad update.

if you have a hard drive detach it and then try turning it on.

if none of these work write a reply in this section and i'll get back to you.

please rate my solution and how it helped you
