Thats the first stages of the 3 red lights ,the white lines are vertical sheering caused by the vga chip.Microsoft now give 3 years warrenty for the 3 red light error plus if you have only just had it back from Microsoft then it will have deffo got a year on it anyway.

When i turn on my xbox 360 it turns to a black screen and says i have error E73 and when i went to Xbox.com it didnt say anything about it


Turn on unit until the red light flashes and the error code(E 73) shows up on the screen. Next insert toothpicks in the back of the console(while unit is running) into the cooling fans, this is to suppose to overheat the console and start two red lights flashing. Turn off console when this happens(unplug all cords from console) and turn the system back on.

I think the video cable for my xbox is messed up. Why does it keep showing up these little circle things? Whenever I turn on my xbox it doesn't come up anything but a black screen with little circles...


NOT HD: Make sure red goes to red, white on white, and yellow on yellow, also make sure the switch that is on the xbox wire plug says TV not HD.

HD TV: Make sure red on red, white on white, yellow on yellow, blue on blue, green on green, etc. Also make sure the switch that is on the xbox wire plug says HD not TC

Black screen with white dots moving around everywhere


It is possible to open your Xbox 360 and fix the problem, which isn't recommended, but there are many tutorials, but if it is not 3 red lights then you don't have the Red Ring of Death. If the whole ring around the Xbox 360 is red then this means that either the Audio-Video cable is not connected properly, or the Xbox 360 is not detecting it. You can try cleaning the AV cable or you could try buying a new AV cable. The easiest way to decide on what you should do is go to:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/906652
That is the specific page for your problem and should give you a solution, and if it does not, then you should be able to contact Microsoft, and if it is still under manufacturer's warranty, then they should be able to fix it for free.
I hope I helped! ~Flascher

Xbox wont show on screen


Check the little switch on the av cord at the end where it goes into the xbox. If your using component most likely it needs to set to HDTV. If your using the yellow, red, and white cables then set it to TV. My tv will go all black if mine is set to HDTV when I'm using the yellow, white and red ends. I hope this helps.

Xbox 360 doesn't read the T.V


It sound like E74 Hana chip error very common, you could try fix it yourself, there are tutorials on the internet to fix the problem but you'll have to open your xbox and that would void the warranty.
the xbox sometimes doesn't show the red lights because the chip is not totally fried, so with the proper handle you could fix it.
If you do want to fix it by yourself here is a link showing how to do that.

My x box is not loading any games and only showing the green x on screen and only showing 2 red lines on front panel


The two red lights means overheating. Either let your console cool down; or vacuum the vents on the back of the xbox to get the dust out. For further assistance, call 18004MYXBOX.
Tip: Keep you xbox on a cool ventilated area.

XBOX 360 won't read discs


I had a similar problem with the 360. I had the red ring of death. You can send the console in by calling the help line for xbox.com. They will send you a box and you will have to send it back to them. It is free. No receipt needed.
