E74 for XBOX 360 is a hardware failure.  Unplug all controllers, hard drives, memory card(s).  Unplug and reseat the power cable and the A/V  cable.  Check the power supply to see that color led lights up when you turn the console on.  If it is red or orange it is an issue with the power supply (either overheating or too much/too little power.  If you are plugging the power supply into a cheap surge protector plug it directly into the wall.  If none of these suggestions work then you need to contact Microsoft.

Screen reads,system error and has a trouble code of E 74 What could be the problem?


The Xbox 360 e74 error is a rather common problem on Xbox consoles, with similar roots to the now infamous red ring of death problem.
The e74 issue is actually caused by a problem with the scaler (ANA or HANA) chips located next to the graphics processor inside your Xbox 360.
It is believed that the error with the scaler video chip which causes the e74 error on your Xbox 360 is caused by overheating. This is also the cause of other errors such as the no video problem, as well as red lights in the power ring of an Xbox console.

To fix the Xbox 360 e74 code, there are a few steps you need to take-
1. Firstly, leave this article open, go to your Xbox 360 console and then remove the AV cable. Blow any dust out of it, then re-insert it snugly back into the console until a clicking is heard. Power on your console again and see if the problem has been fixed.
2. If that does not work, borrow another AV cable (get one off a friend or family member, or from your local video game rental shop) Try using this one in your Xbox 360.
3. If replacing the AV cable does not work, then you will have to repair the scaler chip and graphics processor inside your Xbox in order to fix the e74 problem. To do this, you will need an Xbox 360 repair guide, which will contain the video instruction files you need to be able to fix your console properly. You cannot fix the e74 yourself without one.
It is important to note that most Xbox repair guides focus on fixing the "red ring of death". However, the process for repairing the e74 will also be covered in the same guide as well, as it is extremely similar.

E74 code


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.

HI, this is a 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.

if the AV cord is good, the scaler or HANA chips will have to be replaced by a qualified Microsoft tech.

Please rate and god bless:)

Try the cable swap if that works then great buy yourself a new cable and bam your set if that doesnt work then you need to contact MS or use a replacement plan. cuz your GPU is fried.
