I am working on my first slim right now. It came to me with the E71
error. I researched it on this site, and looks like it is usually caused by a failed dashboard update. I found that the console will power up correctly, and I get green lights with the traditional welcome screen, but it throws a red light and E71
error message before making it to the dashboard.
So far, I have tried holding the sync button down while powering on the console to try to purge any failed updates. That did not work for me.
I would really appreciate any advice on what steps to take next. The console does show signs of being opened previously, but it still has the x clamp, and so far, I have not seen any signs of any hardware having been changed, removed etc.
I could really use some guidance on this one. Thanks very much in advance for any advice.
