Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Both codes you gave are different, but could be same:
E71 = A possible dashboard update error, may need sent back to MS for repair.
E79 = Hard drive error.
In both cases though it could be your hard drive causing the error. Try removing your hard drive and see if that solves the problem.

If you get the Xbox 360 1 red light message, it means that the problem is either with the DVD drive, or with the hard drive.
Fortunately, the Xbox 360 1 red light message is not something that you should worry about. In order to identify which of the two drives the Xbox 360 1 red light messages is referring to, just look the code number that the screen displays.
