I recently bought a premodded 360 which was apparently fixed with a reflow station.
Anyway, I had this strange problem with the graphics going crazy (in-game
, back at dashboard
(easier to see)) the first time I played it. I turned it off and then waited 30 minutes and tried again, and I didn't have the problem anymore for a while. Recently it started again much more often (I usually have to restart 3 or 4 times before it finally doesn't happen).
The interesting thing is that it only happened during the first 20 minutes or so of playing. If I made it past 30 minutes, it wouldn't happen no matter how long I played, which doesn't seem to be consistent with a heat problem to me.
And now while I was typing this, I got E74.
Considering these details, does anyone have any advice for the best way to proceed trying to get it fixed? It really sucks to shell out for a console (not to mention the hundreds of dollars of yet-untouched perepherials) and then only get to play for a week.
For what it's worth, I have the drive key for my modded BenQ drive, and two other broken 360s I got off friends who were trashing them, one of which gives 4 red rings (not 3) and one of which shows E74.
