Try a different video cable first if possible but mostly not the case.
The problem is with the GUP. Best way to fix it is to use a heatgun and an Xbox360 repair kit. Follow the link below to read more about fixing E74 issue or get the repair kit.

My xbox 360, had the E74 error problem, with 1 red light! I fixed that, but now it starts up as a working xbox but when i put a game in it wont play it, and just says play Dvd, can u help Please!


Hello rickster32

As you have mentioned that you got a E74 error problem which you got fixed up, E74 problem is a hardware related issue so the problem you are now facing is linked to a messed up dvd rom firmware issue.

It is very much possible that post you have fixed E74 problem your dvd-rom firmware could have gone corrupt and now is not recognizing the game discs and only playing dvd's

It would be advisable to send your unit to MS support if in case it is under warranty

How do i fix the x box 360 3 red rings of death


The Xbox 360 e74 error is a rather common problem on Xbox consoles, with similar roots to the now infamous red ring of death problem.
The e74 issue is actually caused by a problem with the scaler (ANA or HANA) chips located next to the graphics processor inside your Xbox 360.
It is believed that the error with the scaler video chip which causes the e74 error on your Xbox 360 is caused by overheating. This is also the cause of other errors such as the no video problem, as well as red lights in the power ring of an Xbox console.

To fix the Xbox 360 e74 code, there are a few steps you need to take-
1. Firstly, leave this article open, go to your Xbox 360 console and then remove the AV cable. Blow any dust out of it, then re-insert it snugly back into the console until a clicking is heard. Power on your console again and see if the problem has been fixed.
2. If that does not work, borrow another AV cable (get one off a friend or family member, or from your local video game rental shop) Try using this one in your Xbox 360.
3. If replacing the AV cable does not work, then you will have to repair the scaler chip and graphics processor inside your Xbox in order to fix the e74 problem. To do this, you will need an Xbox 360 repair guide, which will contain the video instruction files you need to be able to fix your console properly. You cannot fix the e74 yourself without one.
It is important to note that most Xbox repair guides focus on fixing the "red ring of death". However, the process for repairing the e74 will also be covered in the same guide as well, as it is extremely similar.

Our xbox 360 just started having lines in the backgound of the games, (example - the sky background in tiger woods 2010 has vertical lines running through it). This problems just started today.


This is the begining of a video problem. You will soon see a E74 ERROR soon with one red light in the lower right. Any fix for this will be temporary. Some time it can be fixed with the X-Clamp fix. How to do it is all over the net.

Xbox 360 e74 system error


E74 is NOT caused by a bad AV cable, it is NOT caused by the ANA/HANA scaler chip. It is the solder points on the GPU that have cracked. You must use a heat gun and do the XCLAMP to fix it. Shops normally charge $75-100 to fix that.
