Any idea what type of RAM the xbox 360 uses? I heard that error 0102 is a problem with the RAM. Its gotta be cheaper buying 512MB or Ram and installing it myself rather than paying the $129 repair charge.
Samsung K4J52324QC-BC14 - 512Mbit GDDR3
Doesn't look easy to replace, it's a 136pin BGA (ball grid array), unlike the ram chips on the Xbox 1.
dont be afriad to buy a 360, the reason you hear about so many consoles failing is because people who have working ones don't complain
say even you saw 30 people on here with defunk consoles, theres another 1000 whos are perfect
Exactly. I haven't had one single problem yet with my 360 (knock on wood), it runs great. All I did was put Arctic Silver 5 on the heatsinks, and put a heatsink on the southbridge.
Since I've heard about all these ram problems, I'm going to work on a way to cool all the ram chips effectively, since only 2 of the 8 have anough room around them to put a heatsink on.

error code "0102" is LITTERALLY "unknown problem" meaning the Xbox doesn't even know what's wrong
that right there means im sol .... 0102 here. happend yesterday,no warranty, 129$ for a problem that is unknown = bs. i had mine since day 1 tho. mostly played halo 2, oblivion & graw (which the problem happend on). somebody should find out what the possibilitys of defect are, and a way to repair. i would be grateful.

I think I have a solution for error 0102.
My x360 has the 3 blinking lights (error 0102). The Xbox360 was booting up and suddenly it froze, sometimes at X-logo or in dashboard. Sometimes I had also picture errors. (Vertical stripes and many rectangles) After 20-40 reboots I got it to work!
Then I opened my xbox, turned it on and touched the BGA memory chips. During this the xbox got more pixel errors and if I pressed strong enough, all pixel errors disappeared.
I thought that I have found the problem, but when I pressed on the Southbridge the same thing happened again. Sometimes more picture mistakes sometimes less. So this means, that the problem is something there.
I remembered, that I still have a Ti4600 GPU with defective BGA RAMs. It makes funny signs and symbols if I touch it. So I used my Hot-air (http://www.freepler....60/01010007.jpg) and heated up this BGA chips. Then I waited till the graphic card have a normal temperature. And you will not believe it! All runs OK, no changes when I touch the RAMs. I also played with it and tested it with benchmark, no problem any more.
And now!! I have done the same work with my xbox360. And also here, everything works in the best way!!
no freeze, no pixelerrors or horrible noise and no bootup problems.
I think MS has saved on high-quality tin-solder.
Attention!! I cannot guarantee that it will also works on your xbox360!!
If you still want trying it, be carefully and do not move or touch anything when you heat them up.

3 Lights and an error code 0021 here. Any clues as to what this is? This started after my house was hit by lighting. I swapped the power and av cable from a working console and it still gave me the 3 red lights. I swapped my harddrive over and that is still ok. I have not registered or bought an extended warrenty. I bought it the day it came out from bestbuy. Is there any hope in contacting MS to get it fixed?
personally i have no idea of what 0021 can be, i had 0020 and im pretty sure it was GPU Fried!, anyway, since you know its the console and get the 3 red lights go and call MS, even if you have not registered or bought extended warranty, they will repair it or send you a refurbished one (my refurbished works so far so good... a lot more than the other one), you just DONT TELL THEM ANYTHING ABOUT THE LIGHTING or else they will probably say its not their fault and wont repair anything.
hope to be any help
