    Xbox 360 Error codes

    If there is a problem with the Xbox360 The LEDs in the ring of light will flash in a particular pattern. The pattern itself leads some insight to the problem. Certain patterns will lead to numbered error codes which will provide further insight to the problem. The numbered error codes are described below their corresponding LED code.

    The Specific Type of hardware failure can be determined by the error code displayed on the screen.

    If the screen is blank or you would like additional information follow the instructions for determining the secondary error code in the section below

    • E45: Unknown (possibly dashboard update related)
    • E64: DVD Drive Error.... DVD Timeout, Wrong firmware, dvd is without f/w chip, etc.
    • E65: DVD Drive Error.... DVD Timeout, Wrong firmware, dvd is without f/w chip, etc. This can also be caused by the tray not being fully closed on boot.
    • E66: DVD Drive Error: DVD model, or version does not match that of the version expected by the dashboard. OR the firmware version on the drive is older then the firmware version expected by the dashboard. Make sure the DVD drive is of the same version originally included with the console and that it is using either the original firmware included with the console or newer.
    • E67: Hard Drive Error... It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it
    • E68: Voltage Error... This error means that the Xbox 360 has insufficent power to function properly. This can be caused by an error in the hard drive or the fans that make them suck up too much power, it can also be caused if you have unnecessary accessories attached to the console like an external fan unit. Attempt to remove unnecessary accessories first, and then necessary components such as the hard drive and USB devices. If you have any case mods you may want to investigate those as well.
    • E69: Hard Drive Error... It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it
    • 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.
    • E72: Error with the NAND flash
    • E73: General Hardware Error: Ethernet port... this error is caused by a problem with the Ethernet port.
    • E74: There is high chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip near the AV cable connection) it can also be caused by a faulty AV cable so check that first. In some cases it is a problem with the GPU and may be repairable by doing the x-clamp replacement (see error 0102)
    • E76: This error deals with the Ethernet port's controller chip, a dead chip may not cause the error but removing the Ethernet controller chip does, it may also be caused by other Ethernet related problems.
    • E79: Hard Drive Error... It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it.

    According to tmbinc: E79 is the error code if xam.xex could not be started, i.e. probably a file system corruption.
    E80: Wrong LDV version in NAND Flash. This is in new dashboard. You have the update but haven't R3T6 resistor. You can:
    Downgrade to old dashboard, solder back the resistor and then update your xbox
    If you have CPU Key, get current NAND Flash image and fix LDV (just add 1 up to latest kernel). (See error 1100)

    Re: Xbox 360 Error codes

    SECONDARY ERROR CODES
    The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code

    • Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
    • Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
    • The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
    • Release the eject button and press it again.
    • The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
    • Release the eject button and press it again.
    • The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
    • Release the eject button and press it again.
    • The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
    • Release the eject button and press it again.
    • The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.


    You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.

    Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:

    • All four lights flashing - 0
    • One light flashing - 1
    • Two Lights flashing - 2
    • Three lights flashing - 3


    • 0001 power supply problem
    • 0002 Network Interface problem (might be fixed by loosening the x-clamps)
    • 0003 Power problem could be the PSU could be the GPU/CPU, somehow the console isn't getting clean power from the power supply.
    • 0010 There is a problem with the Southbridge Chip usually dealing with how it connects to the mainboard (cold solder joint/bridged solder joints)
    • 0011 CPU over heating - If you are receiving this error after disassembling your console make sure to all 8 of the heatsinc screws are tightened securely to the board/heatsink holes.
    • 0012 GPU over heating -ensure your x-clamps are installed properly.
    • 0013 RAM over heating
    • 0020 GPU Malfunction, similar to error 0102
    • 0021 This can be caused by two completely different things either:
    • A. DVD Drive Time out - Can be caused by problems with a firmware flash. This is also speculated to sometime be caused by a problem with the southbridge chipset on the motherboard based on how it connects to the DVD drive.
    • B. GPU error, generally caused by a poor connection to the mainboard (cold solder joints/bridged solder joints) See error 102 for more information
    • 0022 CPU error, generally caused by a poor connection to the mainboard (cold solder joints/bridged solder joints). This can also be triggered by an error with the TSOP.
    • 0023 (not yet known)
    • 0030 Problem with temperature control
    • 0031 could be caused by a short between the heatsink and surrounding capacitors
    • 0032 (not yet known)
    • 0033 (not yet known)
    • 0100 Likely a cold solder join in GPU or Ram chips (see error 0102)
    • 0101 (not yet known)
    • 0102 Error in the "Digital Backbone" (CPU/GPU/RAM), this is usually caused by a cold solder joint between the GPU and the mainboard.
      There are two theories to fixing this one deals with the "X" clamps that hold down the chips. The other involves re-Heating the chips. DO NOT attempt either of these if your console is still under warranty. If your console is still under warranty return it to the store where it was purchased or call MS to have it replaced.
    • 0103 GPU Error this is usually caused by bridged solder points where the GPU connects to the mainboard. see error 0102 for more detailed information
    • 0110 Ram error, this is caused by a cold or bridged solder joint on one of the Ram chips.
    • ...
    • 0200 (not yet known)
    • ...
    • 0203 over heating GPU possibly due to lack of thermal compound.
    • ...
    • 1000 Kernel can't be launched/signature in NAND Flash chip is broken! It could be possible after bad update. This might also be caused by a bad SATA cable.
    • 1001 DVD Drive Error, either incorrect firmware or DVD Time out.
    • 1002 DVD Drive Error, likely a firmware error, drive can eject, read, and write under windows but errors on console, replacing original firmware should fix issue.
    • 1003 Hard Drive Error... It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it
    • 1010 Hard Drive Error, Can be caused buy a corrupt or missing eProm. See also E68 above
    • 1011 (not yet known)
    • 1012 (not yet known)
    • 1013 (not yet known) possibly a dashboard update error
    • 1020 (not yet known)
    • 1021 (not yet known)
    • 1022 There is high chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip near the AV cable connection) it can also be caused by a faulty AV cable so check that first. In some cases it is a problem with the GPU and may be repairable by doing the x-clamp replacement (see error 0102)
    • 1023 DVD drive not connected, connect DVD drive to boot
    • 1030 This error deals with the Ethernet port's controller chip, a dead chip may not cause the error but removing the Ethernet controller chip does, it may also be caused by other Ethernet related problems.
    • 1031 This error is for power problems with the RAM chips. It might be cause by a short between the heat sink and resistors or by more serious problems with the RAM. [more info]
    • 1032 (not yet known)
    • 1033 it could be cpu/gpu related or it could be psu related, not much info is known for sure.
    • 1100 Wrong LDV version in NAND Flash. This is in new dashboard. You have the update but haven't R3T6 resistor.

    You can:
    Downgrade to old dashboard, solder back the resistor and then update your xbox
    If you have CPU Key, get current NAND Flash image and fix LDV (just add 1 up to latest kernel). (see error E80)
    ...
    1444 and up There is no "4" in the error codes four lights is a "0" go back and check your code again.
