Question about Microsoft Video Game Consoles & Games
What is E 74 mean on the xbox 360 as i have a red light showing an flashing?
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.
