I got one red light in the bottom corner and an error message with e74 i checked the guide for wat it was related to and it said it was my hard drive but i unplugged my hard drive and the problem is still...


  • here is info on the red ring of death that i know about and the solutions
  • 1 red light means the e74 error
  • 2 red lights means the xbox is overheating and was shutted down automatically
  • 3 red lights means hardrive error
  • 4 red lights means that something is unpluged
the problem is not in the hardrive itself, but its that the hardware scaler chip is damaged. now, microsoft is giving a full refund to people owning units with this error or so i hear. so you can rebuy a new unit payed by microsoft and your problem is solved

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.

Error 74 red flashing light in third spot, x box shut down


First thing you do is check all cables!! if that doesnt help: the good news is that the 1 red light and error E 74 show the same fault, the bad news is that you need to contact support as it looks like a hardware faliure which is normal for the xbox (here is the link to the MS troubleshoot page)

This is not the classic "red ring of death" so im not sure where you are going to stand with the 3 year warranty

1 RED LIGHT E74


You have an E-74 error, unplug everything and let it sit for about 30 mins to an hour, that should fix it.

Xbox360, i flashing red light bottom right error 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........
