I'm a long time lover of the Xbox and Xbox 360, not to mention Microsoft themselves. I moved in for school last week, and updated my Xbox 360, as it was apparently time. The xbox is relatively old, the exact date I'm not sure (I traded my PS3 for it, an amazing deal for me I must add) but I'm assuming it's no longer covered by warranty, I no longer have the papers regardless.
The xbox worked for a few days quite happily, when I noticed some odd fuzziness whilst playing a game stored on my hard-drive (120GB), and just assumed the cord was loose. So I turned my xbox off, got up, ensured that the cord was in snugly on both sides and turned the xbox back on.
Upon pressing the button, A red light was shown in the bottom right hand corner of the light ring. I thought this was odd, as RROD covers three rings, not the one. Then the screen came to the error screen reading Error code E74.
Upon research it's an audio/visual error, which upset me further. I tried playing around with the cords, and decided that wasn't the issue.
Obviously I need to either have my xbox repaired or, of course, replace it.
Does anyone happen to know the cost of sending my xbox off to repair this issue? And if not, will my 120GB HDD work with the Xbox slim? Like I said, Im a new student and have very limited cash to fix my xbox... Please let me know.
