E74: AV cable error... There is a problem with the AV cable, try using a different AV cable. If the cable is known to be working then there is a 90% chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip connected directly to the AV cable) in rare cases it is the GPU.

    If the new AV cable doesn't work, you will then need to contact Microsoft for a repair ticket. the scaler chip will need to be replaced.

The colours have faded/leeched on my console. In fact, the red now shows as blue. I also have an intermittent 'E74' caption. Any suggestions???

Zoiks, E74 error is kind of like getting the red ring of death. In fact, if you have purchased your xbox within the last 3 years microsoft will warranty it for you.

From what you say of your symptoms, a likely culprit is the AV cable, the one from your console to the tv. Try replacing that. If that doesnt fix it then it will be much more involved.

My xbox 360 has a e74 and its has the error code on the tv how can i fix it please

Ah, this is a terrible error. The E74 Error, I actually got this last week. It's really sad. There are two options, here they both are in detail:

Choice #1.
Make sure that your Xbox is turn off. Hold the sync button and press the power button to power on. Continue to hold the sync button till the Xbox is completely powered on. If it gives you the same error repeat the steps. If you still having problems after about 5 times this fix won't work, sorry. Resort to Choice #2.

Choice #2.
I wish I could help more than Choice #2 but that's an only known solution. This is a last resort. Contact Xbox Customer Support for a repair or replacement service. There number is 1-800-4MY-XBOX. You can just hit 0 till you get to an agent.

Good luck and I feel your pain.

E74 error how to sort it

This is the replacement code that came with the update replacing the RROD or Red Ring of Death. You have to send it in under the 3 year extended warranty Microsoft implemented due to all the RRODs they were producing.
To confirm your console is displaying the E74 error message, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off the console.
  2. Turn on the console.
  3. Verify that your console displays the E74 error message.
If your console continues to display the E74 error message, it requires a repair. For more information about how to start the online repair process, please visit the appropriate Web site:

Black lines 1/8 of an inch apart going down my screen when playin

I had this happen a few times, then after a while it stoped working all together. In the end I was getting the E74 message code appear when I turned on my xbox 360.

You'll probley get this happen with yours soon, the E74 code means theres a problem with your visual display.

Sometimes it can be as simple as changing your HD Lead or scart lead, whatever your using. If you know someone else with a xbox try theirs.

If this doesn't work you'll have to send it off to mircosoft, it will be free if your still under warrenty, if not I think it's about £100+

Or you could go on and buy one of their DIY kits.

Hope this helps.
