Is E66 the error code that displays?

You may be able to find a better answer at posting the question in the Forums section (My console Was Banned/suspended) if the xbox is trying to say you modified the console.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Had a quick look around and found this:

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

code 1002 See Error E66

E66: DVD Drive Error - Dvd drive pairing failure: 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. if drive can eject, read, and write under windows but errors on console, replacing original firmware should fix issue.

So it looks like it might be an DVD drive issue like how a few others state in this thread Here, and seems to be a common problem too with the very 1st gen Xbox.
