I have a xbox 360. One morning I went to turn it on and I got RRoD.. "Error E74." This was my first time trying to take it apart and what not.. so I take it apart, brush off all the dust and residue.. and clean the chips where the old heat mats used to be.. I then re-applied thermal compound onto the chips and replaced the heat mats with 2 pennies wrapped in electrical tape. So I put my xbox back together, and fire it up. and It works. But the fans are super loud, and it will run for about two minutes and then shut off and give me 2 red rings. Any suggestions?

Get a new 360.

It's just isn't worth it trying to blow life into a old RRoD box.

If you're really keen on keeping that box then I'd suggest getting a reflow or a reball (better)
It will last for a few months (reflow) but will RRoD again.
Reball is way more expensive but it will hold far longer (if done correctly)


edit:
E74 is a scaler problem.
GPU or HANA related.

    Right now I'm re-calibrating the laser for my SCPH-1002
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    As many of the earlier models are prone to failure

    I'm so glad the boyfriend his laser still functions without any issue

    The eBay listing said that it won't read discs, but it actually does although FMV is laggy as well as CDDA. So it most definitely needs re-calibrating.

    I wish I could get things from ebay, just sit there and spend tonnes of money

    Why it took so long is because I've been on Discord throughout my life, but have met a lot of toxic people on there and was always treated a lot like shit.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    @cearp,
    Thank you so much! :)

    @DinohScene,
    I know right. I did originally have an account here on GBATemp back in 2021, hardly ever used it so I ended up deleting it.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Reason was because of Discord, was so attached to it that it affected my mental health really bad.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I'm much better and I am so happy to be with this community.
  • cearp @ cearp:
    glad to hear it mate

    discord is just a bit weird, all separate things merged into one. a discord server can't really replace an actual site like this
