The Common problems of the Xbox 360 console
Microsoft first released the Xbox 360 in 2005, it has since grown immensely in popularity. Despite the acceptance of the XBox 360 as a quality product, and its overall delivery of promises to users, numerous operational issues have been discovered. (Any product based on intricate electronic circuitry would be expected to have this..
The Xbox 360 red ring of death is a common error that makes it virtually impossible to do anything with the console. Independent analysts of the xbox 360 red ring of death said the problem could be a result of graphics card soldering mistakes; Microsoft however has not been too forthcoming with the details of what could be causing the problem. Microsoft has tried to fix this problem, and it is no longer as common.
In addition to the “red ring of death,” another common problem experienced with the XBox 360 is an E74 error related to video problems within the console Due to the repetitive, and most common, issues with the “red ring of death” and the E74 error, Microsoft began extending warranties to three years.
A less common problem experienced by XBox 360 users is an error message labeled Open Tray. This happens when the game console is unable to read a file from a disk. (CD) or a Digital Video (DVD)The console sometimes completely loses memory of the disk it has attempted to read at which time the user has the choice to open the tray. Unlike the first two problems of Xbox 360, which are rooted in the sensitive circuitry part of the console’s core as described earlier, the open tray error is thankfully to do with the ‘local’ parts of the console responsible for CD/DVD reading, sorting out this error is as easy as cleaning the lasers which reads these devices cleaned.
You feel like tearing your hair out when you are engaged in a game and it suddenly stops on you.
Lets suppose you have an Xbox 360 that often freezes in the middle of your games and this happens quite often to you. Perhaps you would be aspiring to learn what is the root cause of the Xbox 360 freezing and what is to be done by you about the same.
If you are faced with frequent Xbox 360 freezing issues, one think to take into consideration is that such free-ups could be an ominous sign of additional serious faults with the console on the way. Undoubtedly, instances of the Xbox 360 freezing often are known as among the classic signs that an Xbox 360 red ring off death error is due to happen very soon. One of the most common Xbox 360 problems – the Xbox 360 ring of death – occurs as a result of errors in the graphics chip of the console.
Equally frustrating is the occurrence of the XBox 36 console and other parts of it freezing. (for example a hard drive.)This causes hard disk access to fail.
Handling the freezing instances in Xbox 360 is not that convenient and that is the bad news about it. If your drive crashes without warning, then you’re basically stuck; however, you can resort to cutting off the power and then rebooting to see if it clears for the moment. The same problem usually will not occur again for months.. If the problem continues for too long, you might consider taking the device to a technician for repair, or even back to the vendor that sold it to you if the warranty is still valid.
If the Xbox freezes then it is a sign of warning of the impending red ring death, you can do very little to avert this red ring death, though mostly you have to switch the Xbox off, let it cool down and switch on again like most Microsoft products, and this will sort out the matter.
