    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.

One flashing red light on xbox360 ( not red ring)


The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.
Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
All four lights flashing - 0
One light flashing - 1
Two Lights flashing - 2
Three lights flashing - 3

Once you get this code, go to: http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=484726
To get the reason for the code.
