7 - kernel - HDD timeout

Most of the times, the IDE cable is not properly connected when you see this error. Please reattach the ide cable. Not only to the harddisk drive but also to the dvd drive. ALso try to reconnect the ide cable to the motherboard.

Press pretty hard so it goes all the way in. Make sure it is seated straight and proper in the drives and the motherboard. If you still have an error 7. Try another ide cable. If that won't work try another harddisk. If there is still no go, try to set the jumpers on the rearside of the harddisk drive. Set it to master or cable select.
If that doesn't work, it probably means your hard drive is shot. There are ways to replace it, you can learn how to do it here:

or here:

It will involve opening your Xbox, building a small device out of about $5 in parts from Radio Shack, using that device to read your eeprom.bin file, and then finally using a program called XboxHDM to create a new hard drive (a WD Caviar works well).
But you can find a used Xbox for around $50, if all that seems like too much trouble.

I have an xbox the first one black with x on top it has just started to come up on the screen in a box saying your xbox need service can you help thanks


In the top left or right corner there will a number, eg 07, which means its a hard drive error which means the xbox is more or less stuffed as each hard drive for the original xbox is specific to the main printed circuit board.
Theres another symtom that tech's call FRAG lights. Where the lights Flash Red And Green, hence the acronym FRAG, if you are getting this symptom, theres a chance your xbox has died.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

I soldered ana chip & tightened gpu chip. after switching on the set green light appeared for 5/6 sec. changing to 2 red lights. 2nd time only red lights came . Now it's not turning on.


1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your Xbox 360 console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot. 2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. For more information about ventilation, see the "More Information" section. 3. If the two lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support. For more information about how to contact Xbox Customer Support, please visit the Xbox Support (http://www.xbox.com/support/) Web site.
