Error 68 means that the xbox has insufficient power to operate. make sure it is directly plugged into the wall. try removing accessories on your xbox like intercoolers and USB devices.

Ps vita Lego Mega Pack


C1-2858-3 is a "Bad Plug-In" Error (which is a programming files the game uses to be able to display correctly on your PSV) You have to disable one of them because obviously it is not working correctly. This is how. (Reset your Vita first) then:

1.click on your game
2.now start your game, but while it is loading in the initial game loading screen hold R (Right Trigger)
3.this will bring up your recovery screen (text only).
4. go to "Plug-Ins" section, click on it, find the plug-in that is "enabled" and disable it by clicking on it.
5.now go back out all the way, and re-start your game. it should work now.

We have an error 68


Error 68 usually means that there is a hard drive failure.
  1. Try taking off the hard drive and starting the xbox.
  2. If the gray screen still comes up then it's a hardware failure in the xbox.
  3. You have 2 options, send it into microsoft or buy a new hard drive.

Turn the console on, displays the xbox screen then screen goes off and a red light starts flashing on console, says system error


is this a single red light? if so, it is a E code error. if there are 2, it is a overheating problem. if its 3, it is a general system error which could be a number of things which you need to figure out the secondary error code to narrow down the problem.
to find the secondary error code:
1. after the red lights start flashing, hold down the "controller sync" button.
2. push the "eject" button 4 times and count the amount of red lights that flash. the red lights will begin to flash rapidly. secondary error codes are only 4 numbers. 1 light = 1, 2 lights = 2, 3 lights = 3 and 4 lights = 4.
after you get the code go to this website, and on the right hand side of the screen under "Xbox Repair Guide" select your PRIMARY error code (1,2,3 or 4 slow flashing red lights). then it will ask you to enter your SECONDARY error code, which is the one you discovered in the steps above.
this will give you a very narrowed down idea of what is wrong with your console, and will give us "questions answerers" a better idea on how to help ya out!

The hard-drive in your Xbox may have some bad sectors. What were you doing when you received the error?

Problem code E 68 red light comes on the 360 tv screen goes black.


This could be an hard drive error, try taking it off and playing a game without it, if this works try playing with it on again, or it could be an eeprom error, this is caused by not enough power getting to the console, if you have any extra fans or plug and play, remove them and have another try.
Thumbs up if this helps.

1 Red Light, error E 68


E68 is an hard drive error, turn it off and remove your hard drive, try to play a game without it, if it works, turn it off again, replace the hard drive and see how you get on, if it still will not work can you try the hard drive on another xbox, this will tell you if its a problem with the hard drive or an internal problem with the box.
Vote if this helps.

Playstation 2 Disc Read Error


After extensive research on this subject and working on several Playstation II systems. I found out the reason your system will play only blue disks and not silver is a alignment problem with the laser. It could be tilted or set to high or low. The quickest solution is to call Sony and get a new laser with the shuttle. If i am not mistaken it cost 50.00 and just go to the playstation site select support and it will explain in full detail how to take your system apart and replace the laser and shuttle.
