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)

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!
Hope this helps, good luck!

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

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 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
