Re: error code 0102

Do the eraser trick then let it flash the rrod for 15-20 mins let it cool for a further 20 mins. the only thing different i did was to take the x clamp off the gpu, scrape the thermal putty off not all of it, just enough to cover the chips with then spread it evenly on the top of them with my finger put the x clamp back on put it back together with the erasers in and hey presto works like a dream. i had error code 0102

Xbox 360 Console: error code 0102 for x box 360...

0102 unknown error
  • though it's most likely GPU related literally means the console does not know what is wrong. possibly a short or cold solder joint somewhere. So far there is 1 major theory for what causes most of these errors is that the Ram, CPU, or GPU are not soldered properly to the mother board due either to poor manufacturing or excessive heat up and cool down cycles that stress, weaken and eventually break the soldered connection.
    There are two theories to fixing this one deals with the "X" clamps that hold down the chips. The other involves re-Heating the chips. DO NOT attempt either of these if your console is still under warranty. If your console is still under warranty return it to the store where it was purchased or call MS to have it replaced. I have also heard of limited success by simply switching the AV cable from "HDTV" mode to "TV" mode.

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.

How to fix e73 error code for xbox 360

i personally have fixed most e73 errors by replacing the xclamps, re heating all the solder on the mainboard and replacing the heatsink paste with new.

e73 errors when searched for on the net say its something to do with the ethernet port BUT ive found it to be the lead free solder on the mainboard around the ethernet port which is at fault not the port itself.

you need to search the net for 3rrod fix and you need to do this yourself or take it to a repair center if your unsure how to do it.

out of 50 e73 errors ive fixed around 49 doing what i mentioned above.

run a search for 3rrod guides on the net or youtube.

if you get stuck email me

Error code 0102

Error code 0102 is still unknown The xclamp mod is a possible fix for this error there is also a possability that the error is caused by a bad soldering join on your cpu, gpu or your ram. I would check all those parts with a magnifiying glass to make sure that there are no cracks in the solder. Another way to possibly fix this is to turn off your HD format on the AV cables this might work.
