Error E06 occurs on Xbox 360


You see the following error message and code when you use your Xbox 360 console:

System Error: Contact Xbox Customer Support

Error code E06

This means there may be a problem with the console.


Try the following steps:

  • Xbox 360 S console
    1. Disconnect and then and reconnect all accessories.
    2. Remove the hard drive.
    3. Remove any USB flash drives. Here's how:
      1. Turn off your Xbox 360 console.
      2. Unplug any USB flash drives attached to your console.
      3. Turn on the console.

      If this step resolves the problem, reattach the USB flash drive to make sure that the error occurs only when the flash drive is connected. If this is true, use another USB flash drive.

    4. Roll back the current software updates on your console, and then apply new ones. Here's how:
      1. Press the Guide button on your controller.
