Turn your Xbox off for like 3 hours..... Turn it back on, if ERROR 74 shows up then you have RROD "Red Ring Of Death".... https://myservice.xbox.com/en-us/Pages/Welcome.aspx If you haven't had it for three years yet, you can send it in to Microsoft and they will fix it free of charge... Next time, try to use the Xbox less.... The more you use it the more it is prone to overheating melting a motherboard chip thus causing error 74

2 red lights is overheating, try giving it a dust out and if this does not work you will need to stop the heat build up inside.

To do this you can send it in or use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide to fix it.

If your controller is not assigned a position, and pressing the sync buttons on both the console and the controller don't fix it (i.e. they both spin for a bit, but then the console's lights turn off and the controller's return to a pulsing pattern), the the problem is actually likely to be your TV, believe it or not. The issue is HDMI -- it's a secure connection between the Xbox 360 and the TV, and if there's an issue with that connection, the Xbox won't even be able to turn on since it'll be unaware of the TV's resolution, color capabilities, etc. Try turning off the TV and then turning off the Xbox. Keep the TV off and turn the Xbox console back on. You'll see the same behavior; but now turn the TV back on and you should see the controller get assigned a position. As soon as the Xbox is aware of what it's connected to via HDMI, things start to work again.

Do you have xbox live?

If you dont theres an update required in order to play it.

Microsoft Xbox... • Answered on Jun 07, 2020

You will not be able to play the game since it is region locked since it is from Europe so you will either have to return it or you can set up an Xbox live account and say you live in Sweden bit I'm not sure if that will work or if it will be worth it because you will only beable to play that one game. Your beat thing ro do is to just return the game and buy it from a us retailer.

Unfortunately there is not. Games, DVD's, ect, are all region coded and can only be played in the region they are specified. There are some devices that allow you to change the region code 1, maybe 2 times before being permanently locked on that region. Xbox is not one of these types of devices. Hopefully the game that he bought from America is available in the UK or coming soon.

On a side note, there is one expensive option to getting his game to play, but that would require you buying and having an xbox 360 shipped to you from the US. Then he could buy games from either UK, or America and use the appropriate region coded xbox!

Its because the dvd scanner is scratched or broken

The videos may be in the wrong format. Try WMV with no DRM on it, or an AVI with no DRM. If that works, than the file format may be un-streamable or the Xbox doesn't like it because of DRM protection.

There isn't anything you cab really do without opening the xbox up.
ll DVD's have what is called a region code. this is a code that is specific to 5 regions. in North America, we are region 1, and Japan, they would be region 5. If the Xbox is purchased in North America, the DVD drive in the Xbox, is imprinted with region code 1. This mean it will only play region code 1 movies, and games.

The only thing you can do is to either mod your xbox, or replace the DVD drive with a drive from a different region, but this will make it so you can play dvds from your region.

You cannot lock the 360, all you can lock is xbox live, you can also lock game ratings so if you have a 10 year old you can do this so they cant play halo.

to lock xbox live you have to go to the system settings and then parental controls.

To listen to music files encoded in Apple's AAC audio format, your Xbox 360 console will need the AAC codec (a processing file), which is available as a free download from Xbox LIVE Marketplace.

Hope this helps.

The 360 wont play protected aac files, the kind you get from iTunes, but you can work around that if you burn the songs to mp3 using your computer, if you got them from itunes, they are protected and until apple and microsoft come to a conclusion on how to fix that, it wont let you do it, if you can change them to a format that will work with xbox, then you can play them, mp3, you can put the music on a disk and save to xbox or from computer to x box, there is also a patch that might work to if you download to your xbox.

You are not supposed to unplug the console while you are playing as there is a 5% chance that you can permanantly break it which sounds like your problem. If your xbox is under warranty then you can phone up microsoft and ask them to pick up your console and fix it 08005871102 is the number xbox helpline.
