My xbox 360 has a red light flashing on the bottom right quadrant of the circle and displaying system error on screen with E74 at the bottom of the screen. Can anyone help or does it need to go in for...


This problem occurs when the Xbox 360 console experiences a hardware failure.

If your Xbox 360 is still under warranty, which lasts for three years since the purchase date for this type of problem, then the best thing you can do is request for your Xbox to be fixed by Microsoft. Even if it is expired, it still best to send it in and pay the small fee, compared to trying to fix it yourself, which will most likely cause more damage.

To send your Xbox to Microsoft, visit www.myservice.xbox.com and select "Start a repair request", then follow the on-screen instructions.

E74 problem


E74 error code on your Xbox360 basically means a 'general hardware error'. You may also be getting the infamous 'red ring of death' as shown by three red lights around the power button. The most likely cause of this error is over heating.
Microsoft has extended their one year warranty to three years for this problem. I would call Microsoft Xbox support before trying anything else. Their number is (800) 469-9269.
If you are still covered by the warranty, they will send you a box to ship your Xbox360 to them, they will either repair or replace it, and send it back to you, and they will pay for the postage! Downside is that this can take at least three weeks.

I red light e74 message on screen


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.

I have 4 red lights on xbox 360 how do i fix it?


This is known as the 'red ring of death' It is likely that you will need to send in your Xbox to Microsoft for repair. It is possible that you are still covered under warranty. Does the E74 error message appear? See here http://bit.ly/56NTkB

Alternatively Microsoft recommends trying a different set of Audio Video cables.Source http://bit.ly/6eWcLD

What is E 74?


The E74 error is the infamous 'Red Ring of Death'. The E74 is the worst one of the lot. It can only be repaired by Microsoft. It's a critical hardware error. In other words, part of the 360 internally has broken. It's likely through no fault of your own, so don't worry.

Call Microsoft's Support line, and arrange for your console to be collected. They will take it, repair it and return it. It should be back with you in a week or so.

If it is outside the year warranty, you won't have to pay for the E74 repair. Microsoft announced a year or more ago, that the E74 error was protected against free, for three years after the purchase of your console.

If your console was bought used, or it is more than three years old, you will have to pay for the repairs.

E74 error bottom right red


send your console to microsoft, i spent £50 to get my e74 repaired, and they send someone to collect it and takes about 1-2weeks well did for me, but its free now as long as your xbox isn't over 3 years old, as they proved that the e74 is linked with the red ring of death, so i wouldnt try and do your own repair as it will void its warrenty. http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/LiveIDSignIn.aspx?redirectUrl=http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/registerdevice.aspx?step=repair

1 RED LIGHT BOTTOM LEFT CORNER


This usually means something is wrong with the graphics scaler. You'll eventually have to send your xbox in to have it fixed, and I believe it is covered under a one year warrenty.
