I repaired my Xbox Thursday night and gave it an extensive workout over the weekend to test my work. About $3.50 worth of materials and a hairdryer was all I needed. I could probably make a little cash on the side by fixing 360s.

I’ve been having the worst luck with electronics lately. Last night I started a new game of Marvel Ulitmate Alliance 2 and halfway through the first level the screen started to go haywire. I rebooted my 360 and got the dreaded E 74 error message. Unfortunately, my 360 is out of warranty. If I want to send it to Microsoft to get it fixed, it’ll cost me $100. I might as well just buy a new 360 Arcade now that they’re $200. But before I do that, I’m going to attempt to fix this thing myself.
