Try borrowing your friend's HDD and use it on your console and see if it still has the same problem.

Whenever I turn it on, it has a red light on the bottom right of the console. The screen says E-74 Error. I was reading how to fix it, some suggested its the A/V Cable. I tried to blow any dust off, and...


simple fix my friend mine broke today was going to play a game and message came up. simply take about 2 towels wrap your xbox up with no games or hard drive in but keep the power supply and av cable in. let it sit for about 20 mins until the bottom red light goes away and 2 red lights appear on the left side. then unwrap it and wait 10 mins turn on it should work hope this helps!

1 red light blinking& error E 74 shows up on the screen.


AV cable error... There is a problem with the AV cable, try using a different AV cable. If the cable is known to be working then there is a 90% chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip connected directly to the AV cable) in rare cases it is the GPU.

I have one red ight and the system says error 74


Is the red light in the #4 controller spot?

If it is, this error is caused by a few things, only one is fixable by you. Check your AV cord..the cord that connects to your TV.

If your AV cord is fine, then this error is covered by microsoft's 3 year warranty. Contact them BEFORE attempting to open the console up...if you have already opened it up or modded, then your warranty is void.

I got the E 74 Error message along with 1 red light


OK, this is a major Hardware failure.

E74: AV cable error... There is a problem with the AV cable, try using a different AV cable. If the cable is known to be working then there is a 90% chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip connected directly to the AV cable) in rare cases it is the GPU.


Contact Microsoft for this repair if the new AV cord doesn't fix this issue. if its still under warranty, it will be a free repair.

360 error 74 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.
