For instance, if an XBox was left on daily for weeks on end and was only about a year old, would this cause an issue with the system being able to read discs??- Jimmy D

Yes it would do as the system would overheat. Wat i recomend is taking it into a games store/ fixer man and get them to check if your LED disk reader light is working fine. ( It could be dusty or just need a clean). Hope it helps =]

Issue with xbox one controller : New xbox one controller (day one edition) left analog stick misaligned . Xbox one has not made a year yet from its release , can i return the controller for repair or


It sounds like the same bugs in the system that the old Xbox, and the 360 had to deal with. They use to tell you not to press a button while the game loaded, or the game will think that the button is at (0). I would contact Microsoft and ask them what you should do directly. This issue could be cause for opening a recall on the controllers. Good luck.

My xbox is making rings around the games. It is less then a year old, what can I do?


If it created rings around a single game disk, it's likely a faulty disk; return it and get a replacement or refund. If the xbox left rings on several disks, then its a hardware issue and theres no quick fix.
However, if the xbox really is that young and causing such problems, contact xbox customer support and they'll sort it out. My xbox broke outright twice, and both times I got it collected,repaired and returned within a fortnight, free of charge.

3 red light flashes. left top. left bottom and right bottom. Problem occurs when power is turned on. Read manual and contacted you.


You've got the three red rings.
They light up when there is a general hardware failure in your Xbox.
If your xbox is under 3 years old, contact Microsoft and they'll service it.
If it's over 3 years old, wrap it in a towel, turn it on and let it run.
This is a simple, yet effective temporary fix.

E74

In regards to your issue with the E74 issue this is mainly stating that there is a problem with the Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) on the XBOX 360. In most cases it is because the system got over heated.

Now if your system is less than 3 years old from the date of manufacture on the back of the XBOX 360 then I would recommend that you contact Microsoft because they extended the warranty for this issue for 3 years.

Games and demos would freeze after about 10-30 min (or sometimes in less time) of gameplay. Now the Xbox 360 turns on but nothing but a blank tv screen and everybody's favorite red ring of death. What...


Go on xbox.com, and it is one of the first FAQ's. It will direct you to fill out your info and MS will send you an empty box and a UPS label. Follow their directions, and you should have a new box in a couple of weeks for free.

READING SYSTEM ERROR E 74.


THIS IS LINKED with the £ red lights, or the red ring of death, so as long as its not 3 years old, Microsoft will repair it in the 3 year extended warranty, so head to xbox.com/support and get a repair, should take about 1-2 weeks.

Xbox 360 console will not power up ,the power pack indicates that it is in standby mode,still nothing happens when I try to turn on the console.


Hi :)

The best thing to do when you experience ANY console related problems is to immediately contact the manufacturer.

1800 XBOX? or something. you know what im talking about.

EVEN IF you DO NOT have warranty left there is a high probability that your system is covered by some recall because of a manufacturing flaw.

I had my Xbox for like 3 years when i called and they asked for the Model # on the underside of the machine? or back. they will tell you how to find it. from that number they can determine if there is a recall on your model (ROFL @ "recall" as they dont recall them just replace the ones that actually call in). I would say 50% of the time you get a free refurbished one and you keep your old HDD.

If they determine they are @fault then they will send you a pre paid shipping box with instructions for packaging (ie Keep; HDD, Controllers, Power Supply, and Componet Inputs)

Ship it off and in 2 weeks youll have a "refurbished" xbox

NOTE if they determine when the machine arrives that the damage is USER END then they will charge a small amount. (this the best option considering it comes with a new limited warranty)

:) GL

NOTE Canadian residents have a higher success rate because of environmental conditions that cause machines to deteriorate faster

Old Tapes work new ones don't


I'm having this exact same issue and according to the DELL tech it is common. What I had to do is keep using the tapes until they started passing. I bought 2 brand new cleaning tapes and ran two cleaning jobs before it would pass. My daily tapes are passing, and after several retrys my weekly tapes are passing. Since my Monthly tapes occur so infrequently, I'm just taking one of the Daily tapes out of the rotation and using a Monthly tape until it passes. It's either this or buy a new tape drive.
