Issues[]

Red Ring of Death[]

Rrod

The three flashing red rings means a general hardware error.

A few weeks after the console's release, reports were going around about the green ring on the console turning red during an error. The main problem was that the first original consoles tended to get the error. The red ring usually covers one part, a quarter, half or all the green ring.

The one red ring shows an E74 error, and a screen of death would come up. Two rings show that the console is overheating, three rings show a general cable error, and four rings show no detection of an A4 cable. Many started upgrading their consoles to try and avoid the error, as Microsoft said that they are not paying for any damages the error might have caused the console. The console was made much more famous by this report.

Disk scratching[]

There were reports of disks getting scratched by the Xbox 360 itself. Microsoft's answer to the problem is that moving the Xbox 360 will end up scratching the disk.

Startup[]

The original startup was a grey ball with a rounded X in it zoomed in close up. The grey ball then spins around, before zooming out with the Xbox 360 logo below it.

The newest startup was the grey ball spinning around while green stripes bounce into it. The ball then turns around to form the Xbox 360 logo.
