My xbox goes to the e71 error after 30 mins of gametime when i exit through dashboard. whats wrong?


after 30 mins or more of gametime, i exit through the dashboard on my xbox 250gb slim, the e71 error screen comes up and i really don’t know what to do. it feels like tried everything. I’ve tried unplugging all the wires and hard drive and putting it all back. I’ve given the hard drive a good shake. and I’ve cleared all my memory off of it. none of the above has helped. And I don’t feel like sending it in to Microsoft because I don’t want to spend the money. This really stresses me out!. Please help me out. it will be much appreciated. Thank you!

  1. It’s probably a dashboard error. Try this:

    1. Turn the console off.

    2. Press and hold the sync up button.

    3. While holding the sync button press the power button to turn on the console.

    4. Continue to hold the sync button until the Console has booted up completely.

    During the boot process the console should clear any failed updates, allowing you to use it normally.
