SOURCE: e74 and 4 red ring Xbox 360

the a/v card is faulty, there is a chip called " ana or hana " and that goes bad.
the best solution is either to send it to microsoft " they will charge you around $ 100 - $ 150.- " to fix it, or to find the chip and replace it.
there is hope though try another a/v cabel, borrow one or something, your cable may be damaged. if the new cable doesn't work then " 100 % sure is the chip " is very common problem.
i have one with that issues and bought another 360 " broken " and i am going to try to switch a/v cards.

SOURCE: i need help xbox 360 black screen

OK, I think I can slove your problem.

There is a slide setting thing on your av cord that gives you the option of using TV or HDTV (look near the end of the cord that slides into the XBOX 360), You will see two choices for settings on the cord "TV" or "HDTV".
Just make sure that you have it on the correct setting. I had the smae problem. My XBOX 360 is not hooked up to HDTV, so for me it should stay on TV. But somehow when I took out the cord I accidently slide it to HDTV.

I simply slide it back to the "TV" Setting and in about 30 seconds it worked perfectly.

I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: xbox 360 has one red light on and shows error e 74

4 red light is a defective A/V cable.
E74 ,E69, no picture , white lines..... the list goes on
99.99% of the problem is the G.P.U. over and de-solder itself
from the main P.C. board. The solution is to have a repair shop
re-soldered (re-flowe) the G.P.U. back to the board and your
problems become a distant memory . That's the truth .

I hope that help a little

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?

Hi, i have problem E 74 one red light ..... would


E74 is due to an inherent engineering flaw and will continue on new consoles until Microsoft institutes a revision.


E 74, E 79, E 71 is shown on screen and a solution to fix it is by ensuring that your A/V connections on your Xbox 360 is secured. Another possible cause to the error is that there is a power surge or outage on your system.

Turned on xbox 360 got a black screen saying system error and E 74 at the bottom of the screen and theres 1 red light on bottom right of power button


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.
