Thanks for providing us with such detailed information.

The actual problem with your Xbox could be a variety of things depending on which error code is displayed on the screen.

If it's the infamous E74 error message then you can get it repaired for free by Microsoft as long as the console is within it's 3 year warrantly period. Otherwise there's a fee.

If it's not the E74 error, you can only claim free repairs if the console is within the single year warranty it comes with.

If you're feeling confident you can try fix it yourself using one of the many guides found on the internet. I would post a link but I don't know which error you're recieving.

If it sayse74 on the screen this is the reason:-
the problem is the hanna chip it controls the graphics and when the board heats up and cools down over and over again(while playing games) the chip losses connection to the board and you lose the graphics it can be repaired but is not cheap. in my opinion get a cheap xbox console from ebay

Depending on the error your xbox may be repairable maybe not. If you still have your warranty (3 years from when you purchased your xbox) then send it back to microsoft, otherwise re post with the error.

This has never happend before while playing online my screen went all different colors and lines i could no longer see the game but was still in it i then turned off the xbox and turned back on within...


If your xbox is still under warranty, call 1-800-4my-xbox to have it serviced. It is a problem realted to the video card inside the xbox. This error is covered by microsoft for three years from the inital purchase date of the xbox. If you are out of warranty you may want to attempt a repair yourself. Instructions can be found on many sites, such as www.buzzle.com/articles/how-to-fix-e74-error-properly.html

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 turning on the xbox the screen turns pink


OK did you ever try to hack your system did you open the inside of it did you drop or smash it or leave it in extreme temps if not it might be the result of poor cable connection,first turn off your Xbox 360 and check out the cables that are connected to the system. Remove them and re-connect them firmly. Now switch on your Xbox 360 again. There is a good possibility that you will find the fuzzy purple screen gone. If you still find a fuzzy purple screen then this might be a bit more complicated problem that your system is experiencing. Usually system overheating is one of the major reasons that cause various Xbox 360 errors

System error 1 light code E 68


error 68 means that the xbox has insufficient power to operate. make sure it is directly plugged into the wall. try removing accessories on your xbox like intercoolers and USB devices.

An error message comes on screen when thew xbox 360 is turned on as well as it says up the top (system error .contact xbox customer support )also three red lights flash on and off


This is either an error code or the 3 red lights of death. If it is the 3 red lights, and not an error code, you will be under the extended warranty. If it is an error code, hope u are under your origional warranty.
