This can be caused by the unit overheating. Once the unit overheats it causes solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Microsoft and see if the unit is still under warranty.

The colours have faded/leeched on my console. In fact, the red now shows as blue. I also have an intermittent 'E74' caption. Any suggestions???


Zoiks, E74 error is kind of like getting the red ring of death. In fact, if you have purchased your xbox within the last 3 years microsoft will warranty it for you.

From what you say of your symptoms, a likely culprit is the AV cable, the one from your console to the tv. Try replacing that. If that doesnt fix it then it will be much more involved.

How do i fix the x box 360 3 red rings of death


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.

Got on red light,E74


An E74 error is when the lower-right quadrant of the ring piece indicator flashes red and displays an error message in multiple languages: "E74 System Error. Contact Xbox Customer Support". The error is caused when there's a video problem with the Xbox's hardware scaler chip being damaged. As of April 14, 2009, the E74 error is now covered by the three-year extended warranty.

One flashing light not the whole ring


Make sure that all the cables are plugged in nice and tight so that none of them are loose then turn your console back on and it should work
