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?
this might be a hardware failure. try turning it off then back, or try keeping a fan on it when you play on and if that doesn't work call 1800myxbox there you'll find step by step instructions to send it down to texas and get it fixed. if that happens three times you will recieve a brand new xbox 360 that has that problem fixed. also keep in mind to keep your hard drive before you send it to be fixed. i really hope this helps with your problem -good luck
you are seeing one red light on the powerbutton and E74 on the screen?
E74 can only be caused by either the HDD or the console itself,so you might wanna try using a different HDD with your console, if the issue still persists, then most probably, the console is having a hardware failure,there is a possibility that the HDD PORT is not properly woking w/c is causing the e74 error.
if thats the case, try calling xbox support hotline(1-800-4-MYXBOX) to process a repair for the console,it will be free,because Microsoft is extending the warranty of the consoles for 3yrs from the date of purchase for e74 and 3red light issues.
or you can also process a repair online,that is available at service.xbox.com,just click on "repair my console"
Having the e-74 code is when the video chip on the 360 over heats and becomes un soldered your best bet is to turn the 360 on with a towel over it and wait for 3 red lights the call microsoft and tell them the 3 lights issue dont mention the 1 light or it will cost you dearly around 150$
Is it still under warranty?
Call the company and get an online tech.
I had to send mine back...
It took a week to receive a box from the company and about 6 weeks to get it back.
I forgot about it!
It takes a while, but works well!
If everytime you turn on your XBOX 360 and it displays this message it could mean a hardware failure :
E74 Means : 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 doing the x-clamp replacement
