Thanks for using FixYa. You've just been hit by the infamous "3 reds lights of death". Basically, your Xbox is having thermal issues and is overheating. You need to contact microsoft to have your xbox fixed. They will fix your xbox even if it is already out of warranty.

Ok i have the bottom right ring flashing red and code E 74 shows up and its been up for a few days what do i do to fix the problem?

"Red ring of death" Every 360 owners fear. It is warning you it is getting over heated. May I suggest a cooling fan for your system They are known to eventually not play at all and the ring goes round and round red then You will have to pay someone to fix it. It's only like $50 but still a pain to do. Or you can go to an auction sight online and buy the kit yourself and do it yourself. I hope this helps.

My controller and xbox wont connect

To connect the controller to your Xbox 360 console, follow these steps:
  1. Press and hold the Xbox Guide button until the controller turns on. The Xbox Guide button is the round button with the green "X" near the center of the controller.
  2. Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned on. If your Xbox 360 console is not turned on, press the power button. The power button is the large round button on your Xbox 360 console.
  3. On the Xbox 360 console, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small round button on the Xbox 360 console.
  4. On the controller, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small button on the front edge of the controller, between the left bumper button and the charging port.
  5. After the Ring of Light spins and flashes one time on the controller and on the console, the controller is connected. The quadrant on the Ring of Light that remains lit indicates the position in which the controller is connected.

Hi There,

Unfortunately it seems as though you have a Hardware fault known as "The Red Rings of Death"

The flashing red lights indicate that you have had an internal hardware failure, probably on the motherboard, which stops the console working altogether.

The only was of solving this problem is by calling the Xbox customer support team. their number can be found on

Explain to them that the Xbox has the Red rings on the console and they will probably ask you to send the Xbox to microsoft (Free of charge) for it to be repaired and returned to you.

Hope this helps !
