    Sorry, i meant 360. It's late and im typing in the dark on non-lit keyboard. Ihave tried the reset console several times with same error. I have also uplugged/replugged all the cables without same result. Have not tried the clear cache cause it goes into error right after logo screen. Please help.

Error 71,what is that?when I load a game it loads,then screen goes black and says error 71


71 is usually cuased by a failed update that was installed or possibly a memory issue. Try these two soloutions and if they do not fix the issue, you have a hardware problem and you will need to send it in to Microsoft.

Original xbox wont start up. while trying to start up, an error screen comes on and the light blinks red and green. a long red blink, and a short green blink


if there isn't a error code showing up on the screen then chances are your system is fried. You can put in a solderless mod chip for under $40 and save the system. Or you can go to the pawnshop and buy a used one. If you need more help let me know.

E 71 error on xbox 360


Sorry timehrhart you've just copied a huge section from Xbox Scene forums without mentioning the Reset codes.

Back to the question - E71 is due to a dashboard update, most new Xbox consoles get this error due to missing a patch that was available to download when the new Xbox dashboard came about.

To fix this you have to clear all game updates and clear the console cache and update your console via Xbox Live. To do this on the old dashboard layout go to the 'System' blade and then Console / on the new dashboard go to 'My Xbox' tab and then go to the far right and choose the 'System Settings' and then Console and then go to the 'Memory' section. Press Y and enter this code - X,X, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X.

You will get a message asking if you want to clear your cache, press Yes and just wait for it to do it's thing and it should come back to the dashboard. Now you have to update your console via Xbox Live and hopefully it should fix the problem.

If this should fail then you have to send your Xbox back to Microsoft for it to be fixed. Microsoft have extended the warranty of any Xbox to 3 years if it has the E71 or Red Ring of Death error, so hopefully you should be covered.

E79 is a hard drive problem. It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it

XBOX 360 SOMETING DOES NOT SWITCH OFF AND PRESS THE POWER SWITCH


if your xbox 360 is one of the older ones or the first released xboxes then it could be the start of the 3rrod problem this type of error can occur when the motherboard starts warping and the solder joints are broken which can cause similar problems such as this. i would also try getting the very latest game you can and doing an update to see if this helps. you may also be able to download the update from www.xbox.com. burn the update to a dvd and then place the dvd inside your 360 and when asked if you want to update select yes and see if this helps.
