E 74 2 red light


Xbox360 is like any electronic devise that uses the BGA packages, they fail one day. there are too many BGA packages on a xbox360 motherboard but the one that always gets hot the most is the GPU chip so it is the one that mostly fails , Any trace on a electronic motherboard has two ends , a bad connection can happen on one of those two ends and for xbox that triggers an error dose that indicate the trace that has the bad connection , if that trace is going from the GPU chip toward the CPU it will trigger a CPU error code even if the bad connection happened on the GPU end of the trace and so on. so the E74 error code is indicating a bad connection on the GPU - AS you see in the attached pictures - and the only way to really and permanently fix it is by reballing the GPU chip , any other fix you hear about like x-clamp fix or towel fix ..etc are nothing more than Mickey mouse repairs that won't last if they work at all, Reballing Xbox GPU is a very advanced procedure that can not be done at home, it requires very high end equipment , high skills and a lot of hands on, one place I would recommend for that procedure is www.ps3specialist.com 5eccc8a7-1dec-40fd-8024-57c86348aad5.jpg f5d919d6-5b21-4925-9de9-cba997f3a300.jpg 87624e84-d783-4bab-b192-b96dccccdfce.jpg 7ae7e858-1161-4b3f-8890-7814879afd8b.jpg 37cbaca6-74f0-4083-acd5-11785e9ca001.jpg 9d36228c-e604-41d9-81c9-8992e47f6261.jpg Xbox360 Reballing repair service phat consoles

XBOX360 FLASHING RED


To fix the flashing red lights what you will need to do is stop the heat getting to the GPU and the CPU and to do this you can use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide or of course you can send it in.

I bought an xbox360 and i get the RED lights flashing on it and as soon as you turn it on the lights cme on. so it does'ent work what should i do?


Nearly all of the lights are caused by overheating - you may have the 3 red lights which is caused by the GPU and the CPU overheating or 2 red lights where the console will feel hot.

Then you can get freeze ups and disc reading problems as well.

How many red lights are showing on the power button?

You can fix all of these errors from home using a good repair guide or send it in.

One red light flashing e 74


e74 or rrod error means that there is an hardware issue.
What you need to do is a very simple and cheap repair.
look on ebay for x clamp repair kits, these are just a few bucks and most sellers include a good guide in how to do the mod/fix.
what causes the rrod or e74 error is the X shape clamp on the underside or the mother board bending and mis-shaping causing the ball soldering on the gpu/cpu slightly melting and forming hairline cracks in the solder.
The x-clamp kit will apply more pressure to the gpu/cpu and a little trick of disconnecting the fans and turning on the xbox and allowing it to overheat will re melt the solder ball joints to fill the hairline cracks.
Depending on which chip is the issue you may also need a 2000 watt heat gun instead of using the over heating method (the gpu chip).
Replacing the heat pads on the heat sink with thermal paste which comes with the kit will keep the gpu/cpu cooler and you wont have this issue again.
Please make sure you buy the kit which comes with heat treated nylon washers as the steel spring washes fail!.
The repair takes around 1-2 hours
I hope this helps in fixing you xbox.

Xbox360 error code


Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
  • All four lights flashing - 0
  • One light flashing - 1
  • Two Lights flashing - 2
  • Three lights flashing - 3

0001 power supply problem
0002 Network Interface problem
0003 Power problem could be the PSU could be the GPU/CPU, somehow the console isn't getting clean power from the power supply.
0010 over heating
0011 over heating - If you are receiving this error after disassembling your console make sure to all 8 of the heatsync screws are tightened securely to the board/heatsink holes.
0012 over heating
0013 over heating
0020 (Not yet known, possibly overheating)
0021 DVD Drive Time out - Can be caused by problems with a firmware flash. This is also speculated to sometime be caused by a problem with the southbridge chipset on the motherboard.
0022 GPU Error / GPU Overheating
0023 (not yet known)
...
0101 (not yet known)
0102 unknown error

Xbox 360 3 red red lights


1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269) If you did not open your box an break the microsoft seal. They fix for free. If not you can replace the x-clamp on the motherboard for the GPU. You see the xbox360s motherboard warps because it runs so hot and the cheap x-clamps used to hold down the heat sinks are not strong enough to keep the board straight. When the board warps it losens the solder around the GPU causing the 3ROD. Just google the xbox360 x-clamp mod to find out how to get it done. If you fix yourself it will cost you like $3.00 for parts at Lowes!
