There are a number of ways to fix it. The easiest for you would be paying someone off craigslist $40 to repair it for you. Otherwise you'll have to take the xbox apart and use a kit from the internet to fix it. Takes about 45+ minutes from start to finish. Kits cost about $10 from the net.

Don't try any of the "tricks" like the towel one, etc. They are likely to damage your system further.

Best of luck!

Hi, i have problem E 74 one red light ..... would


E74 is due to an inherent engineering flaw and will continue on new consoles until Microsoft institutes a revision.


E 74, E 79, E 71 is shown on screen and a solution to fix it is by ensuring that your A/V connections on your Xbox 360 is secured. Another possible cause to the error is that there is a power surge or outage on your system.

I have two broken 360's, one that randomly freezes and one with the one red light and E 74 error. I need help fixing the scaler chip


for the one that randomly freezes. have you treid using it without the hard drive? if yes and it happens to all games then you have to send it to microsoft. if it does not freeze when the hard drive is out then it just have something to do with the memory on certain games or the gamer profile. for the one with e74, if it still has that without the hard drive then you should send it to microsoft nad you have a 3 year warranty for that,.

Xbox360, i flashing red light bottom right error message


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........

My xbox360 has a red blinking light


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. Also try this take the AV cable, plug it out and plug it in, if it still doesn't work unplug it, wipe the metal part with a soft cloth then plug it in. That might help.
