E74 indicates hardware failure of some sort. It could be that when you pull the av cable you are solving the current issue (maybe its the av slot thats broken), but either way you should contact microsoft as its going have to be sent in for repair.

E74 code


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.

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 doing the x-clamp replacement

Xbox 360 e74 system error


E74 is NOT caused by a bad AV cable, it is NOT caused by the ANA/HANA scaler chip. It is the solder points on the GPU that have cracked. You must use a heat gun and do the XCLAMP to fix it. Shops normally charge $75-100 to fix that.

E74 Message


An E74 error usually means there is a problem with the AV cable but in rare cases could also mean there is a problem with the GPU. If you can, try and use another AV cable, pick one up second hand and see how it goes.

E74 error


E74 for XBOX 360 is a hardware failure.  Unplug all controllers, hard drives, memory card(s).  Unplug and reseat the power cable and the A/V  cable.  Check the power supply to see that color led lights up when you turn the console on.  If it is red or orange it is an issue with the power supply (either overheating or too much/too little power.  If you are plugging the power supply into a cheap surge protector plug it directly into the wall.  If none of these suggestions work then you need to contact Microsoft.
