An original Xbox? On the error screen there should be a number. Which is it?

2 - bootldr - Eeprom check failed

4 - bootldr - Ram check failed

5 - kernel - HDD not locked

6 - kernel - Cannot unlock HDD

7 - kernel - HDD timeout

8 - kernel - No HDD found

9 - kernel - HDD parameters (

10 - kernel - DVD timeout

Actually its almost the same as error 6/7/8.

11 - kernel - No DVD Found


12 - kernel - DVD parameters (PIO/DMA)

13 - kernel - Dashboard launch fail

14 - dashboard - Error loading dashboard

16 - dashboard - Clock cannot be set.

20 - kernel - The dashboard was attempted to load and failed

21 - anywhere -

Some of these are relatively simple to fix. Some are nightmarish. Let me know which it is and maybe I can help you.

Start up. Button is turning green and then red and place where you put the disc it will not open


Is this is an Xbox 360 (you never specified the console, but red and green are typically Xbox light colors), then the red lights mean that something is wrong with your console and it is unable to function. The best option at this time is to take it somewhere to be repaired, or to replace the console.

If you would like to try to troubleshoot and repair it yourself, this site has instructions or reading error codes on screen and how to get the xbox to display secondary error codes if there is none displayed on screen. Other links on this page also have tutorials for possibe fixes for the Xbox 360: http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/Xbox-360-error-codes.htm

Three rings are green one red on tv says error e73


Hi,

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.


Thank you

Original xbox wont start up. while trying to start up, an error screen comes on and the light blinks red and green. a long red blink, and a short green blink


if there isn't a error code showing up on the screen then chances are your system is fried. You can put in a solderless mod chip for under $40 and save the system. Or you can go to the pawnshop and buy a used one. If you need more help let me know.

Xbox Original flashing green and red


Hi there!

This is known as the Christmas lights or FRAG frequent red and green error.

Most of the time the screen is blank and if you were doing work recently such as modchipping this could be caused by solder splashes on the mobo or a shot MCPX chip. Removing the MCPX chip is impossible without very expensive equipment so if you can't find any solder splashes or you weren't soldering on the board junk the whole board.

However, since you said that your xbox is original, I would assume that you haven't done any modifications yet so chances are, the xbox can't find an AV cable connected to this unit. If you do have one, please check if your AV cable is damaged (a frayed or damaged wire). Replace your AV cables and your good to go.
Cheers!

My xbox 360 is showing green


no red lights, no previous error msgs, and video output on the box has just died. playing halo yesterday and mid-game the colours went askew (like a green overlay) with horizontal banding, backing out to the dash solved nothing so after a reboot there was simply no video. troubleshooted the tv and cables and its definately the box.
