E 74 Error


The E74 Error is a problem with your graphics chip. It's very much like the Red Ring of Death and you need a repair. MS warranties units for 3 years from the E74 and if you are still in this warranty I suggest going to www.xbox.com/support and requesting a free repair from them. If you aren't in warranty any longer I would suggest seeking a skilled professional to assist you.

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.

E74 notice. 1 red light on ring....game looked grainy while playing b4 e74 notice appeared


If it is under warranty (E74 is covered for 3 years) contact Microsoft. If not consider finding a reputable person to fix it for you. It is a rather easy permanent fix (no towel tricks, or fan tricks, they only further harm the console in the long run) but it does require some know how.

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

Good luck

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.

Got on red light,E74


An E74 error is when the lower-right quadrant of the ring piece indicator flashes red and displays an error message in multiple languages: "E74 System Error. Contact Xbox Customer Support". The error is caused when there's a video problem with the Xbox's hardware scaler chip being damaged. As of April 14, 2009, the E74 error is now covered by the three-year extended warranty.

Scratched Xbox 360 motherboard


Hi,

Usually if a motherboard has been scored or damaged.
( tracks or resistors/capacitors dislodged et,c )
The board is in the Bin. ( scrap ) unless the damage can be repaired. The RROD Or red-ring of death. Is usually due to the x-clamps fitted to the console initially, by the manufacturer.
Replacing the x-clamps, with a kit ( bolts/washers thermal Compound ) And 4 x heatpads recommended. Can cure the RROD. And in my own experience the 1 red light And E74 error.

Bottom line, if the boards scratched. it,s in the Bin.

Mike @ Compurepair.
