First thing you do is check all cables!! if that doesnt help: the good news is that the 1 red light and error E 74 show the same fault, the bad news is that you need to contact support as it looks like a hardware faliure which is normal for the xbox (here is the link to the MS troubleshoot page)

This is not the classic "red ring of death" so im not sure where you are going to stand with the 3 year warranty

E 74 displayed on sceen when xbox is switched on. 1 red light flashing. Please help


This is caused by overheating.

MS warranties any red lights for 3 years, if it's outside the warranty you can send it in to a third part repair place or to MS (although MS is expensive).

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........
