The Error 74 means that your 360 is experiencing hardware failure. Only one red light should show up. You should send you 360 to Microsoft for a repair. If you are not under warranty you could fix it yourself, by doing the X clamp repair. But by opening your 360 it will void your warranty so be careful.

Hope this helps

E73 error one red ring of death bottom right


There are links that show you how to repair this issue yourself (but they are not very clear and every thing is very fragile inside the XBOX 360) or you can contact me via email at mycharminglife@gmail.com and we can discuss the issue further as I recently repaired my XBOX 360 with the same issues and it works better than when was brand new. There are additional measures that must be taken besides the x-clamp replacement which are certain heat syncs that prevent it fron sensing false over heating issues.

Xbox 360 Elite - Ring is flashing red (1/4) of the circle- E74 error coming up


I recently had the E74 system error which started with as ‘black snow’ on the screen. There is an extended 3 year warranty that covers E74 and 3 Red Lights errors only.

I looked in to fixing it myself but thought might as well let someone else graze their hands getting the case off!

Despite the horror stories of it taking forever MS seemed to have pulled their finger out and made this a very efficient process, I got mine back within a week (I live in the UK and repairs get shipped to Germany).

Here's a quick breakdown of the process:

1. Go to www.xbox.com/support and click on the relevant link relating to your problem.

2. Go through the walkthrough. If you've still no joy you can click a link to pick whether you are a US resident or not.

3. Type in serial number of the console (you don't need any receipts, I bought mine off eBay).

4. They send you a shipping label and a link to arrange UPS to come and pick up your console.

5. Bite your nails and rock manically in a corner until your console comes back (you can track the whole process at xbox.com).

I've sent back a first generation 360 and an Elite. Certainly worth considering as they will repair or replace your console!

E74 error bottom right red


send your console to microsoft, i spent £50 to get my e74 repaired, and they send someone to collect it and takes about 1-2weeks well did for me, but its free now as long as your xbox isn't over 3 years old, as they proved that the e74 is linked with the red ring of death, so i wouldnt try and do your own repair as it will void its warrenty. http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/LiveIDSignIn.aspx?redirectUrl=http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/registerdevice.aspx?step=repair

What is the error code at the bottom of the screen & check for flashing red lights on the power button if 3 illuminate it the infamous RROD(Red Ring of Death-google it) which you will get a free repair for if its the bottom right quadrant flashing red then its most probably E74 or E61. E61 is a hard drive related problem so try playing without it, & E74 is the AV cable snapped inside or the GPU/CPU inside the xbox 360 has weak solders on it, I suggest MS support ASAP.
