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.

95 dodge dakota what is the purple wire that runs to the computer brain for?

I don't know liter size of engine?
I did look at some wiring diagrams, saw a couple of violets with tracer color--saw a red-- saw a pink--didn't see a purple.

For the 2.5L engine I looked at, one of the violet wires was 5 volt ref.
The other violet wire for iac, I believe.

While replacing the water inlet valve it fell and pulled my wire connections loose. Now I don't know which color wire goes where. Does anyone know the order? Admiral Washing Machine Model# AAV7000AWW.

This whirlpool should be very similar.
Check the image and see if this is the arrangement.
Electrically the white is common and the other tan/red strip cold
Brown hot water for the Whirlpool.

The second image is for the AAV7000AWW where the pink wire is hot water and the Purple is cold. In both cases the white is connected together and is common.

I hope that this helps

Looks like a problem the colour balance. But to help you more, I need to know what model Fuji you have.
You are sure there is no smudge on the lens? and there is no damage to the lens?

Xbox 360 Red Ring of Death Fix Kit

The e74 is an overheat issue. It's also know as the red ring of death (rrod). It is very, very common. The link above covers the entire disassemble and re-assemble of an xbox.. That is if you chose to go that route to repair.

If you have a local Gamestop, they may be able to repair it for a fee.

Getting error code E74. What does that mean??

means the switch inside your device is off.... tear off ( unscrew ) the bottom hatch ( or top ) inside are a bunch of devices. look around for 2 small batteries hooked together with glue... lift them up and underneath is a red switch.... flick it on..... put everything back to normal ( dont gorget the batteries.... if you dont put the batteries back done exactly where they were, your xbox or ps3 or whatever may blow..) now you are ready to play!!
