Xbox 360 Red ring of death


If it still under warranty, contact Microsoft for a replacement.
There is no permanent fix for the Red Ring of Death.

Xbox problems


There may be serveral problems with it,could be the power supply,ana chip or the cpu and gpu under the heat sinks in the xbox.I wrapped mine with a couple of towels and left it running for about 15 mins. then cooled it down another 15 mins.There is a way to fix it  yourself,go to youtube and watch "fix 1 red light".If your xbox is under warranty send it in,you might get a brand new one.Hope this helped.

E74 error message


I had the same problem,they say it might have to do with the power supply or the cold solders inside the xbox not connecting the chips on the board.If it's under warranty send it back.I on the other hand i cracked mine open (void warranty),so i tried the towel trick(wrapping your xbox with 2-3 towel and running it for 15 minutes then cooling down for another 10 mins)worked for me.Although i have to do this almost every other day.Good luck!!

Xbox shuts down during a game 3 red lights


hey johnny you will have to call microsoft and get it fixed there is one thing you can do in the mean time to temp fix it.

what you need is two towels just normal bathroom towels take everything out of your xbox e.g harddrive,controlers etc only things to leave in is the av cable and power supply as you wanna turn on the xbox lie a towel flat on the ground and lie the xbox on its side ontop of the towel turn the xbox on, you will see the error message and the red lights flash. wrap the towel around your xbox covering the air vents and then the 2nd towel put over the top. leave it on in the towels for about 20 mins then after that take all the towels off turn off the console and leave to cool down for 15 mins. turn the xbox on and it should restart again fine but only lasts for a couple of days then you have to do it again. wont fix it but will let u play while microsoft gets it.

hope this helps please rate me

3 flashing red light on console


uh well u got the three red lights of death it sounds like... and i also had those. while im no expert on this stuff, iv seen that u can put ur 360 sideways on a table, wrap it in towels(and i mean like 2 towels, wrap it up completely) and turn it on and leave it on for about 10-15 mins. just make sure a fire doesnt start in those 10-15 mins(believe me you dont want to call the fire company and tell them u started a fire wrapping ur game console in towels), ok then after u done waitin turn it off, unwrap it, and let it sit until it is cool, and try turning it on. it might work, its supposed to work because those three red lights mean that theres a malfunction in the 360 itself, such as wires or sumthin, and extreme heat may melt the wires and fix the problem, how i dont know but theres so many stories of ppl who have pulled it off
