For the FIRST time in my life I had a console die on me. My Xbox displayed one red light in the bottom-right corner with the E74 error message. Luckily it's still under warranty, but it looks like I won't be playing Madden 10 this weekend.

Yeah, it's dead. The E74 is a common issue and is covered by the 3-year warranty.

Yes, more FSX for the next few weeks.

Amazed you made it as long as you did. I had to have gone through 3 or more myself and I baby my consoles. Anyway sorry for your loss, would try to bring you over to the darkside but I know that is futile. Guess you could always break out the Wii and let Christmas come early for the kids.

These things must be a total crap shoot.  I tried to baby my 360, but my wife will play a game or watch a movie and then go out and leave the thing running for 4 hours or more.  I come home and its been on all day.  Still chugging away.  I gotta say the thing is as loud as a jet sometimes, but it keeps going.

I'm shocked that it happened because I also baby my consoles and still own these still-working consoles:
  • Commodore VIC-20
  • NES
  • Sega Genesis
  • Playstation
  • Two PS2s
I never play my Xbox for more than 2-hours at a time and keep it well ventilated, so I thought I'd avoid any heat-related issues - guess I was wrong.

I'm so tempted to go buy the Arcade console. It seems like you're guaranteed a Jasper with those.

Some people think the new dashboard update is causing the problem with older Xbox consoles. It did happen to me the first time I played my Xbox after the update. Hmmm....

Sorry to hear, Jason.  And bad timing for you.  I'm on my second, but my launch console lasted a long time as far as these crappy pieces of engineering go.
