The E74 error is caused by the scaler chip overheating and if you stop the heat build up on the chips you will be fine. To do this you can send it back or repair it yourself

The E74 error on the Xbox 360 can be caused by a faulty AV cable if you can try another AV cable and see if that fixes the problem.
If not then there is a high possibility that there is a scaler chip problem.

The E74 error is covered in the 3Year warranty from Microsoft for a free repair otherwise you may have to pay for the repair as long as you haven’t modded your console.

If your console has been modded then this error can sometimes be fixed using the X-clamp replacement.

1 red light e 74 code


E74 is an error related to video. It's either:
  • Bad video cable
  • Bad graphic chipset issue
Try a different video cable, unplug and plug it back in to make sure the video cable is seated properly. If it's neither of these issues, the only thing to do is to contact Microsoft's customer service and get it replaced/fixed.

E74 then e71 error code after updating desktop. tried hdd on another xbox and it plays ok


Hi, one code actually causes the other in this case. The e-74 is a GPU malfunction and the GPU is actually what runs the dashboard. So when you updated and got the e-74 code it caused the e-71 to come up because you were updating the dashboard. The only way to repair this problem is with an x-clamp replacement,it is a fairly inexpensive repair to have done.
