How to Fix Xbox 360 Error Codes Quickly and Easily

The vast majority of gamers find themselves dealing with a red ring of death on their Xbox at least once in their consoles lifetime. The “RROD” is certainly the most common type of problem associated with the console.

There are, however, a number of Xbox 360 Error Codes that are sometimes referred to as Fault Codes.

Although not as common, they do cause similar problems to the red ring of death. Freezing, crashing, flashing lights and basically not being able to play your Xbox the way it was intended to be played.

Many of the codes, E64 to E69 and E79 all relate to hard drive and DVD drive errors.

The most popular error codes though are E71 through to E74.

In fact, the most common error code that most Xbox users experience is the E72 code which, at this time, is an error to which not many know the cause of.

What to do if you get an Xbox 360 Error Code

If you get a hard drive or DVD drive error then you may need to look into replacing your Xbox console or send it back to Microsoft, bite the bullet and pay out $100+, then wait 4-6 weeks to get it back. Alternatively, you could source out a new hard drive and/or DVD drive from eBay and fix it yourself.

If you get an unknown error like the E72 code, for example, the first thing to do is try and perform a system reset. Here’s how:

1. Select the “system” option in the menu
2. Under the System folder, choose “memory”
3. Press Y on the game controller
4. Press X, X, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X, X
5. You should see a message that reads, “Do you want to perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage devices?”
6. Select “yes”

If, however, the error code remains after you have performed a system reset and you are out of warranty with no desire to pay Microsoft any more money – the best thing you can do is to download an Xbox 360 repair guide.
