You have a bad laser. I have had the same problem with my XBOX 360. If your system is still under warranty you can send have Microsoft fix the problem for you. If not they will charge you $99.00 US dollars to fix it but will give you a new one year warranty. But if you are like me I went online and bought a new laser from ebay for about $15.00 and install it yourself. If you need more info let me know or you can go online and get all the info you need.

Someone plugged there xbox 360 HDMI cable into the USB port in a laptop. Now they get a E74 and 1 red light lower right side . What can they do now.


If you get the Xbox 360 1 red light message, it means that the problem is either with the DVD drive, or with the hard drive.

Fortunately, the Xbox 360 1 red light message is not something that you should worry about. In order to identify which of the two drives the Xbox 360 1 red light messages is referring to, just look the code number that the screen displays. DVD drive errors are identified with the codes E64, E65 and E66, whereas hard drive errors are identified with codes E67, E69 and E79.

Once you identify which error the Xbox 360 1 red light message is pointing to, fixing it is really easy. The guide available at Fix-xbox360.info will tell you what to do in each case, as well as what to do in case you get any of the other Xbox 360 lights messages. Check it out.

My playstation 3 crashed on cod mw2 and now wont play games


first call would be to sony, this is a common sign that the blu-ray disc reade ris knackered. i know it still plays dvd's and cd's but so did mine when the reader went on it. word of warning if sony send out an engineer to take your playstation away for repair remove the hardrive as they wipe them before returning it to you, and nothing worse than losing all of your saved data and profile info.

Could be hardware or software.
This should be under warranty, so call the manufacturer.

Xbox 360 wont play the games but will play cds and dvds !!!!


Mocrosoft only entended the warranty on the "ring of death" issue which was hardware related to overheating.  They did not extend the warranty to any other issues.  DVD/CD emulators and the games emulators are handled by different software.  
You can try a factory reset of the console...

Before trying this, it's highly recommend that you remove all hard drive and memory cards. Once you've removed all hard drives and memory cards, navigate to the systems tab in the main menu and select the “Initial Setup” option. Once you select the option, it will ask you if want to run the initial setup that occurred when you first started your console. Say yes and it will do its thing. When it asks for a memory card/hard drive, just decline and it should be done. You should see the default dashboard screen as confirmation that it did, in fact, rerun initial setup.

Resetting to factory defaults / resetting parental locks
This might work only with older versions of Xbox 360 dashboard.

Press the following key combination

Left Trigger, Right Trigger, X, Y, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, Up, Left Bumper, Left Bumper, X

This should give you a dialogue asking whether or not you want to reset your system to factory default settings.

If none of this works contact Microsoft and see if the console is still under warranty.  If not they will repair it for usually 99.00
