Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

XBOX 360 My son bid on an Xbox 360 (on Ebay) without our permission. He did not research it and did not notice it said, "AS IS". It arrived yesterday and doesn't work. He is crushed, he was so excited for it to come so he could play and he bought with his hard earned money. If I understand correctly it has 3 red lights and an E74 code. No games work. Any idea what this means?

    We weren't sure how to do that fix and my son had already called Microsoft. They sent us a box and we are sending it to them to fix. But thanks anyways!!

E74: There is high chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip near the AV cable connection) it can also be caused by a faulty AV cable so check that first. In some cases it is a problem with the GPU and may be repairable by doing the x-clamp replacement (see error 0102)

This is called the red ring of death, what I have researched try taking all the memory devices out (hard drive, any usbs, the expansion memory etc...) turn the Xbox on wait for it to boot up once booted turn it back off, make sure all connections for the memory devices are clean reconnect the memory devices to the Xbox and turn it on this should get rid of the RRod error 68.

Hi my son can't get on xbox live with fifa 10


unfortunately, after doing some research, i have determined that unless the problem is that you don't have xbox live gold, in which case you wouldn't be able to play online period, your son needs to make a new gamer profile. It should work afterwards. I need more details as to exactly what happens before i give you a definitive answer, though.

Hi Mom, the bad news is your sons X-box is in need of an x-clamp replacement. It happens when the x-box gets too hot and causes the clamps to warp. The good news is that it is a fairly common problem and is usually relatively inexpensive to fix. I would recommend finding a game store who repairs these in your area.

My xbox has three red flashing lights, how can I get it working again?


My sons Xbox had the 3 red lights! It depends what colour of light is showing on your power pack the colour indicates what the problem is! The light will either be red,amber or green, my sons light was amber and that was due to a faulty power pack, Microsoft were very obliging and replaced the power pack free of charge,it arrived in 3 working days! Here is a link that will take you through the different lights and how to fix the problem!

If your son has a laptop/PC that is near to his 360 you can just use the Ethernet cable supplied and plug it into the Xbox and Laptop/PC and that will work

Alright, lets fix this!
 Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow.
Usually when the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange it's on standby so there is no problem with your Xbox 360 console but the power supply can't supply it with power !

First you have to try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for a minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cords at all.
If it's still doing the same it will be definitely a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply.
So, in this case please contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill the Xbox 360 power supply.

Xbox 360 power supply light is red.
There is something wrong with the Xbox 360 power supply connection so try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cord at all.

If it's still red that would be for sure a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply .
So, then contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill your Xbox 360 power supply .



You can also find replacement power cords many places online. See if you can get your hands on another cord and try that to see if its the current power cord.
Hope this helps you out! Please don't forget to rate :)

Xbox 360 red ring of death


The sellers of these guides are just greedy people trying to make a quick buck. Repairing a 360 console is not for a total novice at all....to even open the case requires a certain tool, research and patience. In the wrong hands it's easy to cause perm damage to the 360 motherboard. Repairers like myself prefer to work on unopened consoles and to be able to conduct repairs properly, without having to inform the owner that because of careless tampering they will need a new 360.
Also I have been doing repairs on ebay for ~6months and I am still fine tuning and improving my repair methods, Be aware that 3 red rings is merely the error reporting mechanism as there are ~12 secondary (actual) errors that can cause the feared red rings of death.

Send it to a repairer who has experience and can prove customer satisfaction and your console will be in good hands. If you are in Aus look me up on Ebay - 1badgringo
