The E71 is a Dashboard Error usually and error within the Xam.xex usually caused by an update error. Try clearing failed updates by following the instructions below:

1. With the console off, press and hold the sync up button (the small white one)
2. While holding the sync button press the power button to turn on the console
3. Continue to hold the sync button until the Console has booted up completely.
4. During the boot process the console should clear any failed updates, allowing you to use it normally.

However if this does not work there is no other solution and the Xbox must be sent back to Microsoft for repair. (Replacement)

E 71 error code


Nobody is 100% sure what causes this error but it Most likely relates to dashboard and console updates. Also, the problem appears to arise from gamers incorrectly flashing their hardware or doing botched firmware hacks which then prevent the system from functioning correctly.
Have you recently updated your Xbox 360 in anyway, or have you (or anyone else) attempted some form of firmware hack or flash? If so, this is probably the cause of the e71 code on your Xbox, however, it could also be completely random. If you call microsoft they will most likely tell you to9 just reset but that is only a temporary fix and you still have the problem of annoying freezes which will get worse and worse. Fixing the Xbox e71 is quite tricky. First try these methods,
1) switch off the console. With the console switched off, press and hold the sync button (the small white button that is used to search for wireless connections). While holding the sync button, switch on the console by pressing the power button and do not release hold of the sync button until the console is fully booted up. During the booting up of the console, any failed updates will be cleared allowing the console to run normally once again and thus eliminating the xbox 360 e71 error.
Another similar way is to
2)Hold the wireless connection button on your controller down with the 360 off. It's the little white button between the shoulder buttons. It's what you used to set up your wireless controller with your 360. While still holding the button, hit the XBOX logo on the controller to turn on the XBOX. Do not let go of the white button. After it's fully started up, you can let go. this reverts you back to your last update.
Or if nothing else seems to work you could try completely resetting your Xbox 360. To do this,
3) First enter the dashboard, go to the right-most column, go and press "Initial Set Up" then follow the instructions on screen. If you cannot access this screen due to the e71 error on your Xbox 360, you can try holding the "Y" button on your controller as you switch the console on. This will enter the same process, and restore default factory settings. However, there is still a chance that this might not work.
There are guides available online for less than $30 if you cant seem to get it fixed but make sure you get one that explains all errors as most only tell about the red ring of death.
Hope this helps

Not going past xbox 360 logo screan


I have had this same problem but never could get it fixed. I loved the Xbox 360 but now its simply a door stop. I'm guessing your getting the E-71 error. There is no real way to fix this easily because it has to do with an update error, meaning some files are corrupted.

It really made me mad when I was on the phone with Xbox Customer support because all they said was you can send it in and we can fix it for 100$.

Here's some links that may help you with your problem.

My xbox got one ring with error code E79 or E71


Well, E79 and E71 are different things.

The E79 is an error code representing a Hard Drive error. It could be the HDD itself or its a connection problem with the hard drive. Try playing your 360 without it and see what happens.

E71: possibly a dashboard update error, there is no solution at present the console must be sent back to MS for repair. Try resetting your console, or Power Off, remove the HDD if you have it. Reconnect the HDD.
