E74 on screen


This error should also be accompanied with a red light in the #4 controller at the ring around the power button.

There are a few reasons for this code to trigger, the only fixable one by you is the AV cord. Check it to make sure it is all fine and connected properly. I would also try borrowing a friends to test out.

If this is a no-go, the error is covered by Microsoft's 3 year warranty. Call them to get a replacement if you have not modded or opened your console up.

Overtime and much use the Xbox 360does not cool properly and begins to overheat. The Ring of Death isyour system warning you that the Xbox has become too hot and locks up.With time the problem only becomes worse to the point that if not fixedwhen first noticed can crash your Xbox 360.

The first thing that you can try is to unplug the AV cable and blowout any dust that may be built up in the connections. Then try hookingit back up and turning it on.If you are still facing the errorthan try getting a new AV cable, or you can borrow one from a friend sothat you don't buy a new cable if this is not the solution either. Onceyou have the new AV cable, plug it in, fire up your Xbox 360

If this didnt fix the error i have found a good clip for fixing xbox360 with e 74 system message <url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0katvvV3ric>Here<</url> it is.
