Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

System error evey time I start up

Hi Guys, about a week and a half ago I bought a 360 and ever since I bought it I have been having trouble. It seems that every time I turn on the console it gives me the message "System Error Contact Customer Support" In like 15 different languages. At the same time the bottom right red light flashes, and it has done this since day 1 (The first time I turned it on it gave the three lights of doom, but has not since). If I reset the console and turn it back on it works fine from then on, but having to turn it on and off once before I play is getting annoying and I'm beginning to think there may be something more serious I should look into. Anyone else had any experience with a problem similar to this? I bought it from costco so i can just take it back, but I already put a new skin on it and don't really want to do that if i can avoid it...

If you have the warranty then return it back if not, then try wrapping it in a towel and leaving it on. It should reset itself and you will be able to play it again. It is overheating and this is a way to get it to reset itself.

Trouble Starting

This is an old 2 stroke, so chances are that the exhaust needs to be decarboned.
A good indicator would be that it got progressively more and more difficult to start with time.

Further, it would be a god idea to check the compression.

Also, you have not mentioned whether or not you have checked the auto lube system. This ensures that there is 2 stroke oil mixing with the fuel

You will be asked if you want to perform maintenance on your hard drive and delete all yes I hope this helps
