Defective Xbox 360 ?
Posted 22 November 2005 - 07:14 PM
Just bought two Xbox 360 Core Bundles from Futureshop here in Canada.
One of them always crashes while loading games, but plays DVD movies fine.
Anyone else have a defective console??

Just curious where do you live... If MS is doing house calls I'll take them up on the offer..
Hey maybe a hot little chick will knock on my door... haha

On hold with MS support for 3 hours now. EBGames didn't have any spares to swap out and said it'd be awhile before they had another shipment. Damnit. Any ideas?

I live in the middle of Missouri, but from what I gathered from talking to the support at 1 800 4MY XBOX and reading other forums, sending a repair man is the standard operating procedure. I even asked if it would be faster if I sent/took it somewhere, but since it was brand new he said they were doing house calls. Just tell them you have hardware failure and sectors 1,3, and 4 are flashing red. I don't know how far in the future the appointment will be. Fortunately, my store has a replacement so I am just going to get a new one.

I turned off the game with the contoller and now it won't start up (it goes straight to the black Error 74 screen)
Anyone have an Idea?
I have tried the following:
2. Unplugging and replugging in everything
3. Removing the hard drive and starting without it
4. Restarting with and without a game in the console
I am going to call MS but I am not hopeful this wil get it fixed

Already tried that, that only helps on E64 errors I believe.

The only way I see the price dropping is when PS3 comes out.
MS knows they are the first to market with this nextgen console..they can charge whatever they want. And guess what , people will pay it because they have to. That's the cost of staying up with technology.
All in all I think the graphics on the new 360 are mind-blowing.
Props to MS and ATI.
Anyways keep this thread going for X360 defective units only.
Also If your console has crashed and now it won't boot....
Unplug it for about 5 minutes then plug it back in and try again.
It should work.
I've seen this on my defective one.. At least it will boot again after it's been left unplugged. Mine still crashes loading the games tho.

After my conversation with MS I was told this warning (Red in Sector 1,3 and 4) indicated hardware failure.
