Red light lower right of ring E74 ERROR ON SCREEN ON XBOX.Can i fix it myself?
I've had friends with the E74 error, and unfortunately it is not covered under the same extended warranty as the red ring of death. However, if you got your Xbox in the last year or so, it should still be covered under the factory warranty, so call up Microsoft Support. Actually, call Microsoft Support anyway, sometimes the warranty information gets lost in the system.
So, providing you can't get satisfaction from their support line, I did come across two videos on youtube.com that showed different ways of "fixing" it. Just so you know, I have absolutely no ways of testing them out and have no way of determining if they will damage your Xbox further. However, if you don't have a warranty and Microsoft won't fix it, it's kinda useless anyway(my buddy used his as a target on the shooting range). The first one shows a way that shouldn't permanently damage the xbox:
But I don't know if you'll get it to work.
And the second one will definitely work, but will kill your xbox after doing it more than a few times. My friend used this trick, and kept his 360 on 24/7 until it quit on him.
These seem like the best of the "fixes" I saw. Hope one of them works for you.
