Red light flashing and letter and numbers (e74)

The E74 error is caused by the scaler chip at the back of the console taking too much heat. To fix it you need to stop the heat build up.

You can do this yourself using a good guide that will show you how to fix it with household items or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

My x box says system error E74

E74 should be covered by Microsoft warranty. It is related to heat and the GPU.

Call, repeat, call their support number and tell them the code. That will save you time and frustration. Have had many friends return theirs and using the online version has not been very effective.

They will ship you a box to send it in and you will be without the xbox for about 10 days total.
