Wow, thanks for the thorough explanation. Microsoft really screwed themselves not taking care of these problems before releasing the 360. At least the newer models are not nearly as prone to these errors. But for the rest of us, it has kinda been really shi**y!

Hi, I recently got the 3RLOD with a secondary error code of 0020 and all I had to do to fix it was open the case, unhook the fans and turn it on. Once It started over heating (switched to the two left lights) i set it infront of a space heater about 6 inches away with the heater on high for about 15 minutes. Immediately after that I shut it down plugged the fans back in and powered it back on and the problem was solved. Played a game on it with no problems. im guessing its just a cold solder joint somewhere. Hope this helps someone. beerchug.gif

Hey guys the company I work for buys store returns and overstock merchandise to sell online. We recently bought a huge truckload that had a lot of XBOX 360’s. About 900 units or so. We been repairing the units and here is what we discovered.

Code 0020 and Code 0102 are the most likely to work with compound replacement

Code 0020 is more likely to work then code 0102

Code 0110 turns into 0022 when compound replaced buy why? (Tried on 4 units)

(Guessing) Code 0110 and 0022 is an issue with airflow in the unit.
Haven’t fixed any yet but others online fixed 0110 with airflow mod.

(Research Says) Code 0021 is a time out issue with the Drive (haven’t fixed any yet)

Anyone know what Code 0021 and Code 0103 is?

If you get any with ERROR 67, 68, 69 – tri swapping out the Hard Drive

ERROR 74 Code 1022 is a problem with the "ANA" or "HANA" chip – has anyone found a fix yet?

Information on Other Problems

* No Video Output – Make sure your switch on the AV cable is on the right setting
TV or HDTV. Sometimes this helps. We do get some with this issue where this doesn’t help. We know the cable is good. Does anyone have a fix?

* Will Not Power On. - Try without the faceplate on. Sometimes the power button is jammed in and keeps you from turning the unit on.

* Bad Tray – Tri using a needle in the CD Drive pinhole. Sometimes just doing this a couple of times will fix the door for good. Also helps with getting the disc out.

* White screen says put disc in 360 can be caused if you swap drives around from multiple units. Its possible to be fixed but looks like a pain in the but.

uhh.gif Purple screen says something about the hard drive – what is this?

uhh.gif Dashboard says “unplayable disc” or doesn’t recognize disc is in unit – no fix found yet.

uhh.gif Are there any codes that can be fixed by holding the sync button when you turn the power on? “Clear Any Failed system updates”

There could be problems with ana/hana swap because these chips are "per box". They are married with flash and flash is marriend wich CPU..

Anyway, I think it's not problem with ana/hana at all.. I had few consoles with E74/1022 codes and in EVERY boxes it had problem with GPU.. Yup, xclamp work for me, so try it first..

PS. Now, I'll search for possible fix for errors:
-0001
-0002
-0003

I have few ideas smile.gif

Going crazy here :-) 3 weeks ago my dvd player (samsung) started to give errors (open tray error codes), it wa completely out of the blue, used it without problems for 2 years. Then after a week it suddenly dissapeared. Till yesterday, cause then i received the first ROD ever sad.gif leds 1,3 and 4 where blinking red. So i tried everything, open the 360, reconnected the dvd player etc etc. Didnt help, tried for like 1 hour to let it run fine again, but no green led sad.gif the, after 2 hours it suddenly went on without an problem! but when wanted to start a game, it tried to read the dvd and it froze... I went mad LOL :-)

When i push the on button, i immediatly hear the dvd making a loud sound, so i still think its the dvd player. I tried to generate the secondary (hidden) error codes, but it didnt responded to it.

Anybody can confirm that its the dvd player? Looks like it i think?

E71: possibly a dashboard update error, Check below in the "Console Reset Codes" for instructions. If that does not work there is no other solution and the console must be sent back to MS for repair.
Hm, it's pretty clear that timing attack will work for this error.. Too bad, I haven't console with E71.. But, maybe I can get it with infectus and hex editor hehe smile.gif So need to be confirmed

I do the thermal paste over and all is well, it is kind of labor intense to remove all those screws, and the X-clamp can be a little tricky at times.

You are on your way to getting the :(leds 1,3 and 4 blinking red; it will work for couple more time and then you might get e74 error, then 3 red lights....I have seen it one too many times.

I just fixed a launch xbox that had the layer on the gpu-heatpads...
It had the error 0022 and it works now...
I did the x-clamp replacement turned it back on still 0022...
So I overheated it(fans plugged out) let it cool down for 30 minutes and after that it worked again biggrin.gif
Thanks for this tutorial
I hope this helps these who got 0022 as I didnt find a single guy who reported this to be working when I used the search function

my 360 crapped out about a month ago. Got the E74 1022 error. I tried the x-clamp fix last saturday and had it working again but it just died on me again today. Same error codes. Is there anything else I can do to bring it back to life again?

As I said before I did the x-clamp replacement and the baking trick along with it. The system worked fine for almost a week then I was playing COD4 and started getting black spots on the screen. If I switched to night vision the spots turned red.

Anyone have any info that could help me?

Thanks

How do I check to see what error code I'm getting? I know it says the sync up button but where is it located?
