If you have the E74 message this is because the scaler chip that deals with the display has overheated and you need to get this fixed, you can do this yourself with a good Xbox 360 Repair guide or send it in.

If you send it in it might not get back to you until after Xmas now.

Hope this helps!

I had the exact same problem. Tried another AV cable and another TV an it did the same thing. After a while it came up 'E74 Error' Only way to know for sure is to maybe try your console with a friends set of wires and see what happens.

I Have the E74 Message is there help without spending alot of money?


The E74 message relates to your AV cable. If you can swap it with a different one try that out. There is a chance that the problem is an issue with your scaler chip which is connected directly to the cable. There is also a small chance that your GPU is the problem as well. The best thing to try first though is to swap your AV cable.

One red light flashing on xbox360,code e74 showing on screen


If you have 1 red light flashing it is normally E74 or some other E error you need to stop the heat.

You can send it in and Microsoft will do it for you or you can repair it yourself using a good guide

E 74


Heres the problem
Section 4 is flashing red
- Hardware Failure
Specifically


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 changing the cable doesnt work then you will need to get it fixed by Microsoft

Check the documentation that came with your Xbox 360 for contact information.
In the US Customer Support can be reached at 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269)

If you just got it take it back, if you have had it for a little while you need to call microsoft and send it off for repair

There is high chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip near the AV cable connection) it can also be caused by a faulty AV cable so check that first. In some cases it is a problem with the GPU and may be repairable by doing the x-clamp replacement

so since you ruled out the av cable then it comes down to the scaler chip problem.

Contact microsoft and get it replaced, another thing you could do is if you have a multi-meter is use that on the output cables of the xbox it will register with some current 5w or so I think it is not 100% sure of that tho I would have to test to make sure.

But as far as a fix for the scaler chip. your best bet would be to call xbox In the US Customer Support can be reached at 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269)

That way if any warrenty on it is not void, and you can get it fixed for free and they are very prompt with their fixing.

hope that helps

E74 Message


An E74 error usually means there is a problem with the AV cable but in rare cases could also mean there is a problem with the GPU. If you can, try and use another AV cable, pick one up second hand and see how it goes.

Please rate if at all useful, thanks!
