Find someone in your local area that can adjust the laser power level on the DVD drive. This is a temporary solution. A better solution is to buy a new drive off of ebay that is the same one that you have and change the PCB boards so you have the same PCB board in the new case with everything else. To see what drive you have, take the face plate off of the console. Look at the front of the DVD drive and there is a small hole on the lower right hand side of the drive. Look at the two wires inside the hole. Red and Black are a Samsung drive, White are a Lite-on drive, yellow are a Benq and a black plug is a hitichi.
This is very easy and only requires minimal soldering.
the problem here is the type of xbox u have the xbox arcade has a 25-30gb hard drive if i am not mistaken while the premiuim holds 60gb your best option is to buy a 60gb hard drive transfer everything over to that one the buy a premiuim xbox for 20-30 more then a arcade for almost double the space
If it isn't highlighted / selectable that means either the cable you are using or the TV you are connected to is not capable of displaying anything above 480p. You will either need to use a different type of video cable, or a different TV, or both.
try this. unplug everything (power cord, av cables, wireless adapter, controllers) and take off the hard drive. dont plug anything in for about 1-2 minutes. when the time is up, put the hard drive on first then plug everything else in.
I am not 100% sure, but you may need to connect to xbox live or the internet and update it. I don't personally own an xbox 360, but I have heard my friends talking about this and how to fix it. Not a guarunteed solution, but you may consider it.
Some game are compatible with the new xbox 360. They are called backwards compatible and you do need to flash upgrade the OS on the new xbox 360 system.
You need to go to the xbox website and go to support and download the flash update then burn it to disk and put it on the xbox to update the software. Again not all old games are compatible with the new xbox system. If your buying used games like I do make sure it says bc next to the title before buying them.
Here is the link to the upgrade
to start off,what type of cable are you using??
since you've already tried using 2diff TVs,basically its with the console
try using a different AV CABLES, if it still doesnt work,try calling xbox support hotline for possible replacement of your cable or for processing a repair for the xbox if necessary..
since you just bought your console,try going back to the store where you bought it and have it replaced, because for the repalcement of the cable if you call xbox support,it will take 8-12business days for toureceive it and 2-3weeks for the turn around time of the repair for the xbox.
E74: AV cable error... There is a problem with the AV cable, try using a different AV cable. If the cable is known to be 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 is the GPU.
Take it back if its brand new and have it replaced,
