Ok, if you are a patient person looking for a free soultion, take duct tape, or another non flammible object and block the heating vents. Then let the xbox 360 run for a few hours. You should get the rings of death and microsoft will fix it for free.

I was playing fifa 10 on manager mode. when the math was finished the whole console froze


This could be the game might just need cleaning,make sure there's no fingerprints or dust on it.
Or it could be that your console was starting to overheat, make sure that it is well ventillated, not enclosed in a cabinet or something, I know its hard to do but try cutting down on the time you spend playing, maybe 2 hours playing half hour cooling down time,If the console is starting to suffer from overheating it will not be long before the video goes, this simple tip might stop that happening.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

Error 74


error e74 is probably the most common error. what ever you do don't overheat it. alot of people think hey lets over heat it it will fix it. well overheating it melt heatsink jell(very important for your console to run) and it will overheat its self destroying the xbox. the error code e74 is a problem with your video out put. this could be due to a bad cable. try a diffrent one a friends or some thing. or try blowing the dust out of the port. to make a better connection. if all else fails try finding someone local to fix it. maybe only $20-$50 dollars

2 red lights. Fans don't help


you have to take the x-box apart(youtube) and then take off the heat sinks clean the thermal paste apply new thermal paste remount heat sinks with type 5mm screws and m-5 washers, nylon not necessary. after remounting the heatsinks you have to overheat the system and then let it cool. the overheating process will sometimes require a heat gun since the console will not stay on long enough to get it heated properly. you sometimes don't have to do this if reapplying new thermal paste has done the trick.

Xbox 360 two red lights in left quadrant


well dust can accumilates in the wierdest ways.

try blowing the air holes with a compress air cans. or take it apart and clean the inside. dust can build up with 3 months of playing depends on your area if you have pets or smokers in the area, dust comes from all sorts.
so try keeping your XBOX360 cooled as possible and keep it cleaned.

i use a air compressor when cleaning mine i try to clean it like every 3-4 months depending on how much I play it.


So keep it clean also red lights could mean no video device connected too, so check your video / audio connector.

There are solder issues, so something to try is just leave the xbox on for an hour, turn off let cool for 5 min. If that doesn't work, it's a difficult solution to recommend but the towel trick' does work, let it over heat the 360 for about 20 min, then let it cool for 20 more min, and it now works fine, I have a inner cooler now to keep from overheating again. Also don't take apart the xbox, if this doesn't work then just send it back to microsoft

Xbox 360 scrathes my disks while inside the xbox


It sounds to me you have your 360 standing on it's side. I placed mine on it's side ONCE and because of it have a pretty scratched copy of Oblivion. Lay it horizontal, and that should rectify your issue. Let me know if this helps.
