    Xbox Live Xbox 360 Repair - Error Codes - Flashing Red Lights, Red Rings, RROD

    Plagued by multiple inquiries about what to do with a malfunctioning Xbox 360, I aim to document & post everything there is to know about Xbox 360 red lights & error codes.

    [Flashing Red Lights]

    [Four (4) flashing red lights]

    / \
    \ /

    -Cause : Problem with the AV Cable

    -Common Solutions :

    • Check AV cable is correctly connected to console & TV
    • Unplug / Replug AV cable
    • Clean AV cable with a clean/dry cloth
    • Try another AV cable


    [Three (3) flashing red lights]

    / \
    \ /

    -Cause : Console or Power Supply hardware failure
    -Common Solutions :

    • Check power supply light
      • If Green, unplug/replug power supply all power supply connections & go to next step
      • If Red/Orange/No Light, unplug/replug all power supply connections
        • If still red/orange/off, replace the power supply unit (PSU)
    • Restart Console
    • Unplug/replug all connections/cables
    • Remove accessories (hard drive, controllers, adapters, etc.)


    [Two (2) flashing red lights]

    / \
    \ /

    -Cause : Console overheating / not cooling down properly

    -Common Solutions :

    • Ensure area around console is well ventilated
    • Unblock ventilation openings on console/power supply
    • Don't place console/power supply on soft surface
      • Carpet, bed, or sofa
    • Don't place console/power supply near heat sources
      • Radiator, stove, or amplifier
    • Place console/power supply on hard dust/debris free surface
    • Allow the console/power supply to cool for several hours



    [One (1) flashing red light]

    / \
    \ /

    -Cause : Hardware failure

    -Common Solutions :
    • Check for error messages on screen
      • If an error message is displayed go to next step
      • If no message appears :
        • Unplug/replug all power supply connections
        • Unplug/replug memory unit (if applicable)
        • Remove accessories (hard drive, controllers, adapters, etc.)
          • Get the latest update for your console
    • If NOT error E74
      • Unplug/replug all power supply connections
      • Unplug/replug memory unit (if applicable)
      • Remove accessories (hard drive, controllers, adapters, etc.)
        • Get the latest update for your console
    • If error E74
      • Check AV cable is correctly connected to console & TV
      • Unplug / Replug AV cable
      • Clean AV cable with a clean/dry cloth
      • Try another AV cable



    [Error Codes : E## Displayed on screen]

    • E64: DVD Drive error - Timeout, Wrong firmware, w/o firmware chip, bad SATA cable
    • E65: DVD Drive error - Timeout, Wrong firmware, w/o firmware chip, tray not fully closed, DMA not configured
    • E66: DVD Drive error - Pairing failure, Model/firmware version doesn't match what is expected by dashboard.
    • E67: Hard Drive error - Timeout, internal/connection problem
    • E68: Hard Drive Error - Eprom/internal/connection problem, DMA not configured
    • E69: Hard Drive Error - internal/connection problem, security sector read failed
    • E70: Hard Drive Error - Hard drive not found
    • E71: Dashboard Error - Xam.xex / NAND flash
    • E72: Dashboard Error - Xam.xex / NAND flash
    • E73: Hardware Error - Ethernet port I/O / HSIO BUS
    • E74: Hardware Error - AV cable / scaler chip problem, ANA/HANA chip, GPU
    • E75: Hardware Error - Ethernet port/vendor, DVD drive connection
    • E76: Hardware Error - Ethernet reset/controller chip failure
    • E77: Hardware Error - read/write reg failure, RAM chip failure, heat sink/resistor failure
    • E78: Dashboard Error - AsicID check failure
    • E79: Hard Drive/Dashboard Error - internal/connection problem, xam.xex, file structure corrupt
    • E80: Dashboard Error - NAND Flash Wrong LDV version, No R3T6 resistor



    [Secondary Error Codes]

    A "hidden" error code can be found by following these steps :

    • Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait until the red lights are flashing
    • Press and hold the sync button
      • while holding the sync button press the eject button
      • The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (see below)
    • Release the eject button and press it again
      • The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code
    • Release the eject button and press it again
      • The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code
    • Release the eject button and press it again
      • The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code
    • Release the eject button and press it again.
      • The LEDs will go back to the red flashing lights


    You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash


    [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
