    No because the error E65 just means that the DVD drive timed out, meaning it didn't respond in time when it was asked to do so.

    Seeing as your not sending it off to MS then I would suggest opening up the case and checking that all the cables from the DVD drive are in place, if they are then you could replace them as they might be faulty, however if after all that it still doesn't rectify the problem then it is either the mainboard or DVD drive, more that likely the DVD drive.

    If you have the original DVD drive key you might be able to correct this, but if you can't then the mainboard and the DVD drive would need to be replaced as the mainboard stores a unique key for the DVD drive on it and they need to match so you can't just put another DVD drive in its place.

Hey i got an x-box 360 super elite (250gb) this chritmas, and my parents really had a hard time giving it to me, today i played it like for 3 hours and turned it off, because i thought it needed a...

Try unplugging all the cables. Let it rest for a couple of minutes. Then plug everything in and see what happens.
Common problems with the xbox is overheating, RROD, corrupted video, dotted lines accross the screen.

Try contacting the store where it was bought. See if they can replace it for you. Some places have 90 days warranty.

If that doesnt work then you need to contact microsoft and fill out a repair order. I myself had 3 RRODs and they were all fixed in less than 5 days, sending it in to Microsoft.

Their site is:

Follow the instructions and if needed give them a call.

Dont feel bad, more than half of all xboxes sold have had this issue come up. I myself had it happen 3 times with two different Xboxes. 1 original and 1 elite.

Our xbox 360 elite keeps telling us to open tray drawer after inserting a disk. We tried 3 diff disks get same thing. Worked fine last pm

This is one of two problems, both involving your laser.

1: the laser is dirty, get a laser lens cleaner and run it through your xbox a few times and see if that helps. You can also get a can of compressed air and carefully spray it into the open tray slot.

2: Your laser has died, at which point your only option is to call Microsoft and ask them for a repair order. Sorry :(

1 red ring flashing dont no wot to do need help!!!I it says E74 dont no wot tht means!!!

Try restarting your console. If your console continues to display the E74 error message, it requires a repair. You can visit

or call 1-800-4MY-XBOX

Microsoft covers repairs for the E74 error for a period of three (3) years from the original purchase date of the console. If you are outside the initial three-year warranty period, you can still receive console repair service from Microsoft for a fee for the E74 error.

I have xbox360 elite modd.mfd it shows e73.

it was a bad idea modding your xbox because in order to do so they have to remove a special chip or rewire so the chip is skipped.this chip stopped your h77 turner lap from over heating which is what has happened causing it to need a new UNMODDED xbox oh and whatch that liquid it,s highly acidic

Xbox elite is turns off after about ten minutes of working fine???? and shows three red lights the screen goes black too

3 ROL is bad news. Means there is something wrong with the motherboard/cpu. Had something to do with the machine running so hot, it would create solder breaks on the cpu/mobo connection. You need to call Microsoft and get it repaired. They have a 3 year limited warranty that covers the 3 ROL and I don't believe the Elite's been out for that long so you should be good to go!

Go, here and sign in with your live id. Then create a repair order.

Hope this helps,

Not working

sorry to say but you could try new av cables, or get another xbox.. preferably an xbox 360 elite to save you from red rings.. you will have to get that fixed.. if you havent had the 360 long, you might get it fixed free from microsoft.. they can find out for you 18004myxbox. i got tired off all these red ring problems and noticed the elite version is a bit more dependable.
