Ok. You have a serious problem that you CAN NOT fix, but DO NOT FEAR! Microsoft has come out and said that if you have red lights that flash, more commonly known as "Red Rings of Death", they will send you another system. So all you need to do, is contact Microsoft and tell them your problem. The e74 error should say in screen "Hardware malfuction" because I had the same thing before. So don't worry about it and just talk to Microsoft. Good luck!

P.S. If you bought it from somewhere popular like Walmart somewhat recently, they will also take it back for you because that is what I did. Mine got the e74 error within the first month and I just sent it back to Walmart and got a 100% refund!

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?

E74 problem


E74 error code on your Xbox360 basically means a 'general hardware error'. You may also be getting the infamous 'red ring of death' as shown by three red lights around the power button. The most likely cause of this error is over heating.
Microsoft has extended their one year warranty to three years for this problem. I would call Microsoft Xbox support before trying anything else. Their number is (800) 469-9269.
If you are still covered by the warranty, they will send you a box to ship your Xbox360 to them, they will either repair or replace it, and send it back to you, and they will pay for the postage! Downside is that this can take at least three weeks.

E74 on screen


This error should also be accompanied with a red light in the #4 controller at the ring around the power button.

There are a few reasons for this code to trigger, the only fixable one by you is the AV cord. Check it to make sure it is all fine and connected properly. I would also try borrowing a friends to test out.

If this is a no-go, the error is covered by Microsoft's 3 year warranty. Call them to get a replacement if you have not modded or opened your console up.

Xbox360, i flashing red light bottom right error message


The cause of E-74 with one red light Error might be overheating of your console and for avoiding such error in future you need to put your machine at an open space. Ensure that it is placed near the window or you can also make some external arrangement for cooling of console such as cooling the machine through a pedestal fan.
But as your Xbox already have E74 with one red light Problem which can be solved by only repairing it, no other alternative.
Either you can send your Xbox to Microsoft (Please note that microsoft is no longer providing extended warranty for E74 with one red lightError) and wait for 3-4 weeks. If you don't want to wait for a month, you can also fix E74 with one red light problem with the help of this DIY Video, the guide will explain step by step approach to fix the problem. Choice is yours........
