This is a typical error with the 360 on the older models. It is covered for three years by microsoft for three years. Call 800-4my-xbox for Microsoft Customer Service. For anything longer there is a charge of $100 or so.

The E74 is a GPU failure in most cases.

It starts to flicker while you play


This sounds like the lead free solder is failing and will eventually go to 3rrod or e74

3rrod or e74 are common faults with the 360, it says that its a "general
hardware failure" which could mean anything really. In truth its the lead
free solder that cracks with so much heat and as a result the Xbox 360
fails causing the 3rrod (3 red rings of death).

You will need to get a 3rrod repair kit or get someone to fix it for you,
there are guides available on the internet. I'm in the middle of
producing one right now that I will make available free of charge for all
fixya members.

Going to a screen that say e74


This is a common problem lately with Xbox 360 machines. Contact Microsoft, they will be able to help you. Do note that MS has extended the warranty of all Xbox 360 machines to 3 years from date of purchase for RRoD and e74 errors. So if you bought your system less than 3 years ago, this will cost you NOTHING.

E74 xbox 360


It is a General Hardware failure. Is your Xbox still under warranty? Go to the Xbox website and check there troubleshooting section first, if that doesnt fix your unit, start a service ticket with them and send it in.

Error e74


Try using a new AV lead as that could be at fault.
check the pins inside the AV plug and socket on the back of the xbox 360 console to make sure there are no bent pins.
if all that fails the video controller chip on the PCB will need to be resoldered or replaced, i think microsoft can fix this under their 3 year extended guarantee.
