How do you fix xbox 360 e 74 any assistants would be a lot of help

There are two ways to fix this error.

First Take it to a shop that is able to re-flow the G.P.U.
with out damaging the P.C. board. And then securely
clamp the heat sink down . Im not sure if Microsoft does this.

Second Take the unit apart , remove the G.P.U.s Xclamp
replace with nylon washers and 4 8-32-3/8 long screws
lightly and evenly torque all 4 screws. Place half the
fan over the large heat sink and turn the unit on.

affter 5 min the fan should be at full speed and in
anouther 3-5 min you should get two reds . Unplug
and reassemble . The unit should be working.

If you have any questions just comment and ill respond.

Switch on xbox withing 5 seconds a red ligh appears bottom right but if you turn the xbox on ots side the red light slips to the bottom right no sinal to television

This is the video chipset failing, couse: heat problem, the main board expands by the generated heat then cousing the solderings of the video schipset to brea, get the xbox to a repairs man.

Two red lights on xbox 360

hey Cmull
i had this problem before because my xbox 360 was old, but this fix is only if ur out of warranty because it involves you openning up your xbox 360. It also isnt the case if your xbox 360 isnt very old, it probably means ur fans are finished. Well, back to the solution you take apart your xbox 360, just do a google search on how to dissasemble your xbox 360 if you already dont know how to do so. Just take off all the covers until you see this
then just get and air compressor or something to blow all of the dust out. i did it for mine and it never happened ever again. Enjoy.

Video output on wrong setting and cant see screen

for PS3, hold the power button for at least 5 seconds or until you hear a second beep.

for Xbox 360,
Turn the console on.
Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller.
Note Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller is the controller where the upper-left quadrant light is on.
As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time. This causes the Xbox Dashboard to reset the display settings to the default settings and then automatically restarts the console. So it's OK when the Xbox 360 console restarts.
