Hi, last days I've been having this issue I don't even know why. Just to clarify my system is a Xbox 360 Core (Xenon, yes still alive!!) and an official HDD 60GB.
Since a few weeks ago, sometimes when I'm playing something and decided to quit to dashboard (change game, check friends, whatever) it suddently crashes and give me 1 red light (bottom right) and black screen.
I searched online and made the hidden feature to check the error that was 1013 which is equal to E71 error (means Dashboard faulty or something like that).
What doesn't make sense, is that it happens ONLY SOMETIMES, and ONLY when I quit from a game to dashboard and it's completly random. I can't recreate the error, it does it when it wants. My games are installed in the HDD and everything runs fine (loading/saving) no problems at all. Dashboard works good aswell, as said before it's a weird 'crash' and happens only sometimes and always when quiting to dashboard, not in a middle game.
I've cleared and reformated the HDD and I think it's something related to it I don't know, since if it was the dashboard or even it works or not not a mid term.
It's driving me crazy this kind of problem because I can't get a solution and don't know what's causing it. It happens let's say, 3 in each 10 times I quit from a game to dashboard.
I've searched online and all I found is related to E71/1013 but of people which's xbox doesn't even boot and gives the error when it's turned on. Mine boots ALWAYS well, no problems at all.
Sorry for my english but I don't even know where else to ask.
