Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

I was playing saints row 2 and for at least three days my screen had black lines and black dots all over and finally i turn it on the next day and the lower right quadrant flashes red and i read the e74 error in many languages. I borrowed another a/v cable and nothing changed, i still read the e74 error message. should i just get a new xbox? to add one more thing the tray that recieves the disk is partialy broken, when you press the eject button you have to doit several times and to put the tray in you have to push it in with your hands. would this have anything to do with the e74 error?

In regards to your issue with the E74 issue this is mainly stating that there is a problem with the Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) on the XBOX 360. In most cases it is because the system got over heated.

Now if your system is less than 3 years old from the date of manufacture on the back of the XBOX 360 then I would recommend that you contact Microsoft because they extended the warranty for this issue for 3 years.

Phone numbers
Toll free: (800) 4MY-XBOX
Direct dial: (425) 635-7180

Note this issue would not have anything to do with the issue you are having with the ROM drive. On the plus side if you are still covered under the E74 error warranty you will most likely get your ROM drive replaced too.

Hope this helps

I bought saints row 2 almost a year ago. I never played another game until last week and when I put in Saints row is stuck at 5% at the loading screen after the logo. Plz help me


It is normally the disc that either is scratched, has dust on it or is dirty.

You can clean the disc with warm water if it is dirty, that won't damage it, but don't use boiling water, that would be crossing the line.

If the game is scratched, you might check your nearest GameStop, they might have this disc fixer, or whatever they call it. They have it here in Norway, so I guess they have it most places around the world. :)

My fujifilm z has a single white line across the screen it is made up of a row of dots,can I rectifiy this in anyway ?


This appears when trnasfer the images at pc? If yes, sound like a malfunctioning CCD-image sensor. Rare, but possible problem with your LCD screenviewer... in both cases (LCD or CCD) this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Samsung service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

My Xbox 360 keeps showing a black screen


1. Get 3 towels then switch your Xbox 360 on.
2. Wrap the Xbox 360 in the towels [Note - You must cover the WHOLE Xbox otherwise it won't work].
3. Leave your xbox for 25 mins in the towels.
4. When the 25 mins is over take off the towels of and let your Xbox 360 to cool for 20 minutes, enjoy fixed gaming for the next 4-7 days. Once you get a blank screen repeat this process.

[Why Overheat it?]
When overheating it you attempt to solder the dis-connected wires back to the motherboard.
I recommend getting it fixed instead.

[What does it Fix?]
This fixed the Red Ring of Death, and the Blank Screen of Death

[DANGER]
I do not take responsibility for this. This is mainly for those without warranty or money to repair.

The premise is to wrap the towel around the 360 and to let it heat up. This will weaken solder points and hopefully re-join broken connections. The problem with this method is that you have no control over what solder points are weakened and there is no way to prevent further damages caused by the heat. It is better to send a 360 in for repair with the three year warranty that MS put on the 360s, because if you try the towel method and then send it in for repairs, they will know by the solder points being misshapen and it will void your warranty forcing you to pay for the repairs.
