    The E74 error is a scaler chip error that deals with the display.

    Nearly all of these problems are caused by overheating and you can fix them yourself.

    I used the blog below to fix mine and it took about 40 mins:

If you go here, there is a way to access the technical subsystem in your xbox 360 using the connect and eject buttons and find out the specific hardware error you are having. If you can designate what the exact piece is, you can check it for damage of re-insert the loose piece(maybe touch it up with thermal glue to keep it running cool. If you get error 0102, don't bother trying to fix it because it could be an error anywhere on the xbox 360. Either trade your broken xbox 360 at Gamestop in toward a Wii or PS3 purchase or you can wait in the "mail-box line" with Microsoft to repair your box if it's still within the 3 year warranty for free. Call them and they will tell you if it is or not. Your just gonna get the same P.O.S. back anyways for it to break on you again in a year, something to keep in mind since the first time around was so fun.

My sony 51" model KP-51WS510 flahes red 6 times when turning on.


Six flashes of the Red Stand By Light means the +5V line is probably shorted on the A or B board. Could also be an overload. Replacement boards can be ordered here: http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
