E71 can be a result of a few things. The most common way to rid the problem is to change the output settings briefly (If your playing HD switch to SD cables or vice versa). I know that has fixed many peoples E71. If not, you may have to reformat your HDD to factory settings (Make a backup of your game saves first!)

I have an xbox 360 that pops up with the 3 red lights on the front and every now and then the e71 error. How do I fix this problem myself?


Nobody is 100% sure what causes this error but it Most likely relates to dashboard and console updates. Also, the problem appears to arise from gamers incorrectly flashing their hardware or doing botched firmware hacks which then prevent the system from functioning correctly.
Have you recently updated your Xbox 360 in anyway, or have you (or anyone else) attempted some form of firmware hack or flash? If so, this is probably the cause of the e71 code on your Xbox, however, it could also be completely random. If you call microsoft they will most likely tell you to9 just reset but that is only a temporary fix and you still have the problem of annoying freezes which will get worse and worse. Fixing the Xbox e71 is quite tricky. First try these methods,

1) switch off the console. With the console switched off, press and hold the sync button (the small white button that is used to search for wireless connections). While holding the sync button, switch on the console by pressing the power button and do not release hold of the sync button until the console is fully booted up. During the booting up of the console, any failed updates will be cleared allowing the console to run normally once again and thus eliminating the xbox 360 e71 error.

Another similar way is to
2)Hold the wireless connection button on your controller down with the 360 off. It's the little white button between the shoulder buttons. It's what you used to set up your wireless controller with your 360. While still holding the button, hit the XBOX logo on the controller to turn on the XBOX. Do not let go of the white button. After it's fully started up, you can let go. this reverts you back to your last update.

Or if nothing else seems to work you could try completely resetting your Xbox 360. To do this,

3) First enter the dashboard, go to the right-most column, go and press "Initial Set Up" then follow the instructions on screen. If you cannot access this screen due to the e71 error on your Xbox 360, you can try holding the "Y" button on your controller as you switch the console on. This will enter the same process, and restore default factory settings. However, there is still a chance that this might not work.

There are guides available online for less than $30 if you cant seem to get it fixed but make sure you get one that explains all errors as most only tell about the red ring of death.
Hope this helps

My 360 goes off and shoes #1 & #3 turn red and started blenking


Your Xbox 360 has the RLOD also known as the "Red Light of Death".

If your warranty is still valid, you can send your Xbox 360 to Microsoft & they will fix it without charge. If not, there are solutions on how to do it yourself, and if that still doesn't work out for you, take your 360 in to Best Buy and they will help you out for a fee.

Locks up and has three red flashing lights where the controler lights are.


3 red lights on the Xbox 360 is the most common error and it means "General Hardware failure. To fix this you need to stop the amount of heat that the GPU and the CPU is taking.

To do this you can use the recommended guide that has been on the market for 3 years or you can send it in.

As long as you use a good guide you will easily be able to fix the red lights of doom.
