So i turn my XBOX on today and i get one red light in the bottom right corner, i've unplugged everything, taken out the HDD and tried it without and it still has the light, only thing i havent tried is swapping the AC adapter as that might be faulty. Rang xbox support and since it is out of warranty i'ma have to pay nearly £100 f**k that, anybody else ever had this E-47 problem?

my xbox got it, I tried the penny trick and the towel trick... nothing work. Though, I'm going to eventually call up MS and tell them it's a 3RL so I don't have to pay anything. f**k that.

Also, since the NXE, there's been a rise in the number of 360's with the E74

the penny trick is this



towel trick is: wrap your 360 in 2-3 towels and leave it running till it overheats. you should get 2RL, then let it cool down and see if it works. NXE is the New Xbox Experience. that stupid f**king dashboard.

why not just do an x-clamp...its better than the towel trick...besides the towel trick only causes more damage to the system...

Yesterday, I was trying to watch some movies on the 360 in my room and the screen just went black. I kept re-booting and the screen just kept going black. I googled it, and it looked like the GPU had gave out. I was heated because I would have to pay $100 to get it replaced. I was just going to be a brand new Core instead since it would have the better motherboard. Anyway, I go in my room a little earlier, and cut it on.... RROD my n*ggas. I'm hella happy. I don't have to pay these n*ggas sh*t now. It's cool too since I only used that Xbox to stream movies. I got it from my boy in exchange for fixing his f*cked up computer. n*gga gave it to me because the DVD-drive didn't work. Now I'm gettin that sh*t fixed for free n*ggas.


UPDATE: Now this raggedy sh*t wants to work! What the f*ck? Everytime I turned it on it had the RROD but now it wants to work. This sh*t needs to get it over with if it's going to take a dirt nap. Y'all n*ggas better pray that I get the RROD.

F*ckin right! I thought I was about to have to pay to get the GPU fixed. I'd rather get the red lights and have Microsoft fix this raggedy a.ss sh*t.

If you got the RROD send that s**t in anyways. When I first sent my 360 in it would get the RROD only if you had it on for like 5 minutes, it would never do it right off start-up. They still sent me another 360.

there is only one way to avoid this rrod s**t....

get a ps3

seriously though... i had so many issues on this i learned how to fix it. it LITERALLY cost 8 cents to fix. yet microsoft will charge you $100 to send it in if your s**t isnt under warranty. when i learned how to fix it i was buying a bunch of rrod 360's from craigslist for $50, fix them, turn around and resell them for $150. s**t was a cool lil hustle but i eventually got sick as f**k messing with them. luckily i can pick up this hustle anytime i want. with the money made i bought a ps3. jeah.

lol yeah there are 4 computer chips under the mother board. you put some silicone based heat sink lube (ha ha ha i said lube) on the chips and wrap 2 pennies in black tape and place it on the chip. there are 4 chips so.... 8 cents. FIXED! luckily i am not lazy to look into fixing s**t when they break... and being somewhat intelligent helps too. a lot of time people are too lazy to try and figure out how to fix s**t themselves.

found this video that explains the fix
