    Default Grr, I'm Seeing red here

    1 red, in tghe lower right, to be specific.

    my xbox just decided to brick itself, which is great

    I was playing the new geometry wars - fine

    got bored, went on GTA. the parts on the loading screens that were supposed to be black were red and purple dotted, and in a nutshell, somewhat broken. Loaded the game and it was all blue and pink polarised crappyness.

    restarted the box, 1 red light, notice to contact customer support, error code - E74 (hardware fault)

    yay, now for my 3rd box in as many years.

    tryin to make it get 3 red lights by overheating it now...

    Unlucky mate, does this mean you have to pay for it as its not RRoD or as its hardware failiure on a repaired console you get away with it??

    E74 is usually an issue with the AV cable mate, take the cable out the back and check again, that's usually one that's easily fixed.
    I'm a bit mental.

    They say they can tell when somebody has been avoiding the RRoD buy using the towel trick, whether they can tell if someone has reversed that procedure is beyond me, I highly doubt it though.

    Good luck with that. I have been trying to force 3RRoD on mine for the last year, everytime I get it, it works fine the next day

    As Diablo says I thought E74 was an AV cable issue ... I got it ages ago when it was coming up with really freaky pictures on my screen ... turned the box off ... unplugged all the cables and plugged them back in and it was fine
    I'd rather be topless !

    its not AV i dont think, its happening with both my cables (VGA and the SD scart thing that you get with the core)

    also, it only appears in-game, the dashboard is fine, and when i bring up the guide, it is too

    right, strange things be going on...

    if i play, it mucks up, always, generally within a few seconds of gameplay, however i have now discovered that if i play for a while, it reverts back to being Ok, ok, i have to endurean hour of playing an acid trip,but it's ok in the end.

    just to give a perspective, this is what i first started getting...

    wow, that must be annoying and just a tip, kicking your xbox doesn't help it rrod, it just hurts your foot. If you find a way of forcing the rrod, please tell me

    Right, i sent off the Xbox on monday, UPS delivered it yesterday, about 3ish...

    but naturally, M$ dont think they have it, even though tracking says it was sent and signed for over 24 hours ago. according to the status report, they are:

    'Waiting for device at service center - We have processed your order and are waiting for your console to arrive at our service center.'

    God damn, I had to pay 50 for this, This incompetence is a joke.

    You'll know when they have it because once they do that status page will have an error everytime you try to view it. If my experience was anything to go by.
