That my friend is an AV issue that lies between the HANA chip and the GPU. It can be either of the two. Personally, I flux and re-flow both chips by hot air and then x-clamp mod the heatsink. Be careful with this method, because damage can be caused to the chips when temperatures get too high. There are several online tutorials for this. On the other hand the X-clamp might work alone, but since that is more of a temp fix alone I would go the other route with hot air or get someone to fix it for you. I hope this helps.

Hi, i have problem E 74 one red light ..... would


E74 is due to an inherent engineering flaw and will continue on new consoles until Microsoft institutes a revision.


E 74, E 79, E 71 is shown on screen and a solution to fix it is by ensuring that your A/V connections on your Xbox 360 is secured. Another possible cause to the error is that there is a power surge or outage on your system.

Original xbox wont start up. while trying to start up, an error screen comes on and the light blinks red and green. a long red blink, and a short green blink


if there isn't a error code showing up on the screen then chances are your system is fried. You can put in a solderless mod chip for under $40 and save the system. Or you can go to the pawnshop and buy a used one. If you need more help let me know.

Red light blinking system error E74


this might be a hardware failure. try turning it off then back, or try keeping a fan on it when you play on and if that doesn't work call 1800myxbox there you'll find step by step instructions to send it down to texas and get it fixed. if that happens three times you will recieve a brand new xbox 360 that has that problem fixed. also keep in mind to keep your hard drive before you send it to be fixed. i really hope this helps with your problem

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.

My xbox360 has a red blinking light


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. Also try this take the AV cable, plug it out and plug it in, if it still doesn't work unplug it, wipe the metal part with a soft cloth then plug it in. That might help.
