I got it when it was thunder when a flash hitted our house or something. My power connector was unplugged but the internetwire was plugged in the Xbox 360. So probably it´s a Network card wrong...

Im going to call my shop tomorrow and hopeful i´m going to get a new one on warranty :)

    The shop i bought my 360 in is going to send my 360 to Microsoft. He said that it´s when a lightning hits your house and when in hits your house, the network chip is getting overloaded with power and gets broken.

    If you got the code E76, the best is to send it to microsoft

    Send it to microsoft.

    It´s probably that a lightning hitted your house when it was thunder. System error E76 is a network chip error.

E76 is a network error code. NOT related to overheating. The "network card" is/has failing/failed

We got the E 76 error after a thunderstorm as well! Lightning no doubt was the cause. Right when the a huge lighting bolt flashes, the console froze. And when restarted, it gave the E 76 error. But the console runs as normal after like 5 restarts, it just says, does not recognize your network hardware and won't connect online.

E76 is actually been reported as a problem with the ethernet chip. I'm afraid I dont know how to fix it

My xbox 360 says error 76 and dont know what to do.


Error code 76 is a problem with the Ethernet controller chip problems or something else involving the Ethernet chip. If your Xbox is still under warranty send it in and get it repaired. If your warranty has ended then there is nothing stopping you from replacing it yourself. If you search around there should be some step by step guides to show you how. If the xbox is working fine otherwise...just let it go and play on.

Everytime i turn my xbox360 on its flashing red like it the red ring of death


1 Red Light

Your system indicates this error when only the bottom right part of the ring is flashing. When you have 1 red light on the Xbox 360, it is usually associated with an error code you see on the screen, such as the Xbox 360 error code E74.

Searching for this error code online or in the Microsoft support site will give you the description and solution. Usually the problem lies on the DVD drive whether it is the wrong firmware or lacks a chip.

It may also be a hard drive error which can be resolved by taking it out and putting it back in or it can be a voltage error which usually occurs if you have added accessories to it. It is best to research the error code so you know exactly what to do.

2 Red Lights

One of the most common is when two red lights are flashing. No need to panic if you see only see the Xbox 360 2 red lights. Its sole meaning is that the console is too hot and needs to cool down. Power down the system and try again in a few minutes or if possible after an hour or two.

After giving the system some rest and playing in a much cooler environment, you should be back to your gaming in better performance. If the problem persists however, you may need to have it serviced to have the cooling issue fixed.

3 Red Lights

If you see three flashing lights, you are experiencing the infamous Xbox three red lights problem that many other gamers are frustrated with. You may also know it as the Red Ring of Death.

At one point 1 out of every 3 Xbox 360 owners experienced this problem. This is the one error that you do not want to get. This highlights that there is a serious Xbox 360 hardware problem.

Your options are to send your console back to Microsoft for repair or to fix it yourself. Be prepared to spend a nice amount of money ($140 or so) if you are sending your system to Microsoft and you no longer have the Xbox 360 warranty.

If you want to try to fix the problem yourself then you can see reviews of guides that we recommend to show you step by step how to perform the repair.

4 Red Lights

If you have to get any flashing lights on your Xbox 360, pray that this is the one. If the entire ring flashes, it is a minor problem that indicates that the AV cable isn't connected properly or in rare instances, the cable is damaged. Make sure everything is properly connected and replace it if It still doesn't work.

I have the error 73 showing on my screen. how can


E73: General Hardware Error: Ethernet port... this error is caused by a problem with the Ethernet port. Try this troubleshooting. Remove the A/V cord from the back of the XBox 360. Stick two sticks into the fans to prevent them from spinning. This will cause the system to overheat within five minutes. You will know its done when the first and third quadrants light up red on the system (indicating the system has overheated). Unplug the system, plug it back in and turn it on to see if it was successful. (Note: While this method does not void your warranty, if your XBox is still under warranty I suggest sending to Microsoft to fix.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Just try searching RROD in google and you'll find exactly wat you need to fix this problem, best of all most can be downloaded for free and u will only need a set of small screw drivers and torx bits and the repair kit from ebay will cost you between £2 and £3.

Sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your XBOX 360.

Please let me know the error code that you are seeing on the screen so I can tell you want you need to do to get your XBOX 360 fixed.

Note if have had your system less then 1 year I would recommend that you contact Microsoft to see if you can get it fixed under warranty.

What's wrong with my Xbox....


You have an system error which needs to be sent into microsoft to fix. There is other solutions though, try going to your local video game store, or computer repair shop. Since the Xbox 360 is just a computer they might be able to fix it. In my city there is a few gaming shops that service 360's for a reasonable price. You could also do a google search for servicing a Xbox 360 and try fixing it yourself. Hope this helped you with your problem.
