Sorry to say but you could try new av cables, or get another xbox.. preferably an xbox 360 elite to save you from red rings.. you will have to get that fixed.. if you havent had the 360 long, you might get it fixed free from microsoft.. they can find out for you 18004myxbox. i got tired off all these red ring problems and noticed the elite version is a bit more dependable.

Code e74 one red light bliking


Hi,


"E74"error code is caused by a memory storage device attached to the Xbox 360 encountering a hardware error. You can try to remove the HDD and restart the console without it, if the E74 code won't appear it means that you need a HDD replacement. But if it still does appear, there is a general hardware failure in the system and it might require servicing. You can contact Microsoft Xbox Support for it to be fixed, out of warranty console will be charged $99 dollars by the way. The warranty period is three years.


Thank you !!

My xbox 360 has error 74


The E74 malfunction is a problem believed to be associated with the system's video output cables and/or hardware scaler chip. The problem involves unusual screen patterns, the appearance of an on-screen error message, and finally a flashing red light in the lower right quadrant of the power ring. When a system suffers from the failure the on-screen message reads "E74 System Error. Contact Xbox Customer Support."

You could send it in to Microsoft of you can follow the steps as outlined in this You Tube video.

Xbox 360 1 red light


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

I would advise you call customer support
They are very helpfull and if your XBOX 360 is under warranty they will offer a pre-paid postal service to pick your XBOX 360 up , and will diagnose the problem .

If your based in the uk , the number is : 0800 587 1102

I hope this helps everyone
