Hello Ya Boy P,

According to Xbox Support, one red light means you have a system error and suggest that you contact Microsoft Customer Support for further assistance. Here is a link that should help you out.

The hard drive do come with the Xbox 360 depending on with version you purchase. If you purchased the premium version or the elite version, the hard drive will come with the Xbox 360. Otherwise you can purchase a hard drive for the Xbox 360. I hope this information helps.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong

We have an error 68


Error 68 usually means that there is a hard drive failure.
  1. Try taking off the hard drive and starting the xbox.
  2. If the gray screen still comes up then it's a hardware failure in the xbox.
  3. You have 2 options, send it into microsoft or buy a new hard drive.

One red ring, erra 68.


What you need to do is try using the console without the hard drive or with a different hard drive, one red ring means a hardware failure, and the error code e68 is in relation to the hard drive. If using the console with a different hard drive, or none at all doesnt work, ensure that the fans are working as they often also cause the e68 error and a single flashing red light.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Red ring of death


i called microsoft, and they said that E 68 with one red flashing light means your hard drive is screwed up. Your 360 will work fine, but when u plug your hard drive in it wont work and youll get the E 68 error message. Call XBOX customer support, and they'll tell you to send it to them and they'll repair it for free. In the meanwhile, buy a memory card and keep playing. Your game saves and other stuff will be lost though. The hard drive takes 3-4 weeks to be repaired.


And no, you do not have to send the Hard drive with a reciept. When you call, they will give a reference number and you must include with the hard drive. They will explain everything when you call them.
