First check your AV cable. Unplug it, put it back in, turn back on. If that doesn't work, long story short, call support (18004myxbox).

Error explanation below:

E-74 - 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 (error 102)

102 error - Error in the "Digital Backbone" (CPU/GPU/RAM), this is usually caused by a cold solder joint between the GPU and the mainboard.
There are two theories to fixing this one deals with the "X" clamps that hold down the chips. The other involves re-Heating the chips. DO NOT attempt either of these if your console is still under warranty. If your console is still under warranty return it to the store where it was purchased or call MS to have it replaced.

If your xbox is still under warranty, call 1-800-4my-xbox to have it serviced. It is a problem realted to the video card inside the xbox. This error is covered by microsoft for three years from the inital purchase date of the xbox. If you are out of warranty you may want to attempt a repair yourself. Instructions can be found on many sites, such as www.buzzle.com/articles/how-to-fix-e74-error-properly.html

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.
