Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Minutes after start up freezes and i cant figure it out.

I dont no if i need to send it to microsoft or not, i was hoping someone had the same problem and found an easy fix for it.
any game i put in loads up. but it just freezes at random times usually no more than 50 minutes into gameplay.
i didnt want to open it up because i thought i'd probly make it worse.
but i tried everything i can from the outside plug in plug out leave it off for days hold down the power button for sometime. nothings worked that i can think of.
so if anyone had this problem or knows how to fix it.
i would be very greatful if you could help me out!

thanks!

My xbox 360 did the same exact thing. Sadly, the only fix i found was send it in for repair.

Disc not spinning


You will need to have your Disc drive fixed. If you have a warranty send it to Microsoft. If you don't there are plenty of people that can fix it or replace it. I am one of those people. You can contact me if you would like me to help you, or help you find someone else who can.

Game freezes within 3 or 4 minutes after playing.


The freeze ups normally happen before the red lights of doom and they are caused by the GPU and the CPU getting too hot and the soldering snaps off so they lose connection.

If you stop the heat build up you will be fine.

You can do this yourself using a good repair guide or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

I have two broken 360's, one that randomly freezes and one with the one red light and E 74 error. I need help fixing the scaler chip


for the one that randomly freezes. have you treid using it without the hard drive? if yes and it happens to all games then you have to send it to microsoft. if it does not freeze when the hard drive is out then it just have something to do with the memory on certain games or the gamer profile. for the one with e74, if it still has that without the hard drive then you should send it to microsoft nad you have a 3 year warranty for that,.

My xbox freezes upon start up i dont know if its e75 or what but iits not the dashboard that freezs either its the screen when you immediately turn on the xbox


yeah probably just e74 or 0102 error that hasn't registered yet cause from a cracked or cold solder joint. You will either need to send it in to microsoft to get replaced, or do it yourself. Since you don't know exactly what error you have, a good fix-all is to try Team Hybrid's Ultimate X-clamp Fix from xbox-experts.com
