I scract my card off and the there is 1 letter i cant figure please help me

Well the only solution I can think of is to try and guess all of the numbers or letters it could be. Sorry there isn't a better solution except for maybe calling Xbox support but they probably can't help you.

Red light flashing and letter and numbers (e74)

The E74 error is caused by the scaler chip at the back of the console taking too much heat. To fix it you need to stop the heat build up.

You can do this yourself using a good guide that will show you how to fix it with household items or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

When scratching off the grey stuff over the pin number on the back of a new xbox live subscription card, the first five characters (numbers/letters) scratched off and can't be read-- it isn't returnable to...

You may be out of luck with that. They may think you purposly scratched off the 5 numbers so you can get more time. I would open up and find a screen that tells you how much time you have and print screen it (hit print scrn), open paint, Ctrl V (Paste) and print it. Than bring your card, the picture to prove it, and your receipt and make sure when you take your screen shot it has the date in it by moving your cursor over the date in the bottom right corner.
Good Luck.

Hope this helps ^^. Please dont forget to rate, Thanks

The console thinks the disk is a movie and displays play and pause and chinese looking letters appear on the screen. It won't allow me to do anything

The problem you are facing is of a copied Xbox 360 game you are probably trying to play on a Genuine Xbox 360, these discs are read as a movie disk and it shows as "Play DVD".

When you try to play such discs, it would give you dvd media control bar on the bottom and the message in chinese letters is actually a message asking you to insert this disc in a Xbox 360, which is actually a Modded Xbox 360 that is required

Lost user manual were to get a new one xbox 360

You could probably write a letter to Microsoft. Although I am not sure where that will get you, or if they would charge you for one... Just make sure you specify the Xbox 360's model number and/or serial number. Good luck.

Red light in bottom right quadrant

Hey there sounds like you might have the red ring of death. Which is usually a hardware failure.

1. Try turning your Xbox 360 on and off.
2. Make sure all your cords and cables are firmly plugged in.
3. Once you have tried all of those trouble shooting tips, turn on your xbox and see if you get an error screen.
4. This will usually be a black screen with multiple languages on it. on the upper left or right corner a letter E followed by a number will appear.
5. If it is an E74 error, then call 1-800-4my-Xbox
6. Microsoft has extended the warranty for Xbox 350 with the E47 error

Don't worry if your warranty has expired they will extend it when you call.
