Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Ive had my xbox 360 for about a year and a half now and it has worked great until just a couple of weeks ago...when i turn my xbox on now all it shows is the bottom right ring light flashing red and E 74 appears on the screen. I looked it up and was told that it was a problem with the a/v cable, but i tried other a/v cables that belong to my friend and it still doesnt work. i figured that maybe that it was the a/v component inside the xbox i.e. the chip. i no longer have a warranty on my xbox so microsoft will not help. does anyone have any advice for me? is there a way i could acquire another chip and replace it? thanks for any help I was playing guitar hero when all these lines appeared on the screen then it said error e74.So what do I do?
No need to replace the chip.. What you have to do is replace the hardware (x clamp) on the video chip the same way it's done when an xbox gets the RROD. reheat the chip so that it connects again by letting it run for about 5-7 minutes with the fan disconnected, turn it off again, wait about 30 seconds and then turn it back on. I fix 360's with this error code at least 3 times a week.
In some cases after doing the clamp trick you will get RROD. No worries, just follow the proccess above and everything will run smoothly.
