Error74


Says here that Error 74 is an I/O hardware error - HSIO related, could be crc error, or several things. The most probable is a problem with the scaler chip [ ANA or HANA ] chip near the AV cable connection. A faulty AV cable can also cause this so checking this first is advised. This error is covered by Microsoft's 3 year manufacturers warranty so long as no mods have been done to the X-Box.You need to contact Microsoft for a free replacement. Sometimes this can be a GPU error as well which can be fixed by replacing the "x" clamps that hold down the chips. Or a cold soldier joint located between the GPU and the main board could be the problem as well. Sometimes you can reheat the chips. If your X-Box is under warranty at all contact Microsoft first or you may not be eligible for the free replacement. Hope this helps.

Xbox360 error74 what do i do ?


This is a fatal error on the board of the unit. This is caused by the unit overheating and causing solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Microsoft and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Error74


The chip your refering to is the scaler chip but also the issue could be in your GPU which you will have to have MS replace. There are a few places you can look but im not sure if the books for fixing xbox 360s covers this issue. MS did extend there warranty to 3 years on all there xboxs due to the mass amounts of over heating issues have you contacted them yet? Let me know
