Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
The screen keeps showing "system error.contact customer support" in multiple languages and at the bottom of the screen it keeps showing E74; there's 1 flashing light at the lower right part of the power ring. E-mailed Xbox support, told me to disconnect everything off the console including hardrive; did, still useless(the only thing I do to get it to work is power it up multiple times hoping it works).Worried because I live outside Microsoft's repair coverage zone & it'll take weeks(maybe months) to send it somewhere to be repaired. wondering wether I should a repair kit. (know nothing about computer hardware).
The cause of E-74 with one red light Error might be overheating of your console and for
avoiding such error in future you need to put your machine at an open
space. Ensure that it is placed near the window or you can also make
some external arrangement for cooling of console such as cooling the
machine through a pedestal fan.
But as your Xbox already have E74 with one red light Problem which can be solved by only repairing it, no other alternative.
Either you can send your Xbox to Microsoft (Please note that microsoft is no longer providing extended warranty for E74 with one red lightError) and wait for 3-4 weeks. If you don't want to wait for a month, you can also fix E74 with one red light problem with the help of this DIY Video, the guide will explain step by step approach to fix the problem. Choice is yours.

I had this same problem, if you have a receipt with warranty for it just take it back to the store it was purchased from and they should replace it.
