AV cable error... There is a problem with the AV cable, try using a different AV cable.If the cable is to be known as working then there is a 90% chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip connected directly to the AV cable) in rare cases it it the GPU.

Good Luck

How do i fix an error 74 on an xbox360


The E74/E6x/E4x/E8x are famous error codes that have plagued many Xbox 360 gamers. This error codes will be displayed on your screen, each indicating different problem with your Xbox 360. It's usually defined by the single red light or 1 Red Light Error lit up at lower right quadrant on the Red Ring of Light on your Xbox 360 console.
E74: There is high chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip near the AV cable connection) it can also be caused by a faulty AV cable so check that first. In some cases it is a problem with the GPU and may be repairable by using the Xbox 360 Repair Guide. Xbox 360 E74 error has reported to increasing a lot for the newer Xbox 360 version.
Hope this was helpful?

If you have 1 red light flashing it is normally E74 or some other E error you need to stop the heat.

You can send it in and Microsoft will do it for you or you can repair it yourself using a good guide

One red light and e74 error code has come up on our xbox360 do we have to send it back to Microsoft or can we sort it ourselves?


The Error E74 can be caused by a faulty graphic chip near the AV adaptor on the back of the console but the E74 error can also be caused by a faulty AV cable.
I would recommend checking the AV cable this can be done by trying yours on a different Xbox 360 or trying someone else’s on your Xbox 360. I would also try unplugging and then replugging the AV cable. If still no luck then give Xbox support a ring. However they will only offer you a FREE repair if you have had your console for less than a year. If you have had it for longer than a year then they may try to charge you a set price.


Hope this helps

If you just got it take it back, if you have had it for a little while you need to call microsoft and send it off for repair
