How do i fix an error 74 on an xbox360


The E74/E6x/E4x/E8x are famous error codes that have plagued many Xbox 360 gamers. This error codes will be displayed on your screen, each indicating different problem with your Xbox 360. It's usually defined by the single red light or 1 Red Light Error lit up at lower right quadrant on the Red Ring of Light on your Xbox 360 console.
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 using the Xbox 360 Repair Guide. Xbox 360 E74 error has reported to increasing a lot for the newer Xbox 360 version.
Hope this was helpful?

The E74 error happens as the scaler chip that deals with all the display, you will need to stop the heat build up, you can do this yourself or you can send it in for repair.

Got on red light,E74


An E74 error is when the lower-right quadrant of the ring piece indicator flashes red and displays an error message in multiple languages: "E74 System Error. Contact Xbox Customer Support". The error is caused when there's a video problem with the Xbox's hardware scaler chip being damaged. As of April 14, 2009, the E74 error is now covered by the three-year extended warranty.

If everytime you turn on your XBOX 360 and it displays this message it could mean a hardware failure :

E74 Means : 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

I would advise you call customer support
They are very helpfull and if your XBOX 360 is under warranty they will offer a pre-paid postal service to pick your XBOX 360 up , and will diagnose the problem .

If your based in the uk , the number is : 0800 587 1102

I hope this helps everyone
