View Full Version : Has anyone seen the "Your Xbox Needs Service Screen??

05-11-2002, 05:13 PM
What's up with this? I was playing Dead or Alive 3 Time Trial thing on the latest OXM Demo Disk and the green circle went red and a screen popped up saying that my Xbox needs servicing and that I need to call customer service. I turned it off then on and put in Halo and it seems to work fine for now.

Has anyone else seen or experienced this? I haven't done anything to my Xbox except turn it on and play a couple games, that's it. Can anyone explain this??

i think this happened with some one else before and when he called ms they told him it would cost him 157 bucks for repairing!

Hmm, well the only time the little thing turned and orangish reddish color on me was when the power cord to the outlet was un-plugged. But, I've never had a service message screen pop up like that, that's kind of weird. Sorry.

Never ran into those problems. Maybe the disk it scratched or something.

That happened to me like a month after I got it. I just turned it off, and turned it back on...it worked just dandy.

what if nothing was wrong?

and microsoft put this into every xbox console only to show up 1/100000 times of being turned on?

just to get money?
