This is known as the E74 error. This is caused when the unit overheats causing solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

If the unit is not under warranty go to www.wiredextreme.com. We are a console repair company based in Texas, and we can get your console up and running again. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty that covers everything on the console, not just what we repaired. We also offer extended warranties up to 4 years at additional cost. The cost of repair is $60 and includes round trip shipping. If you have any other questions/concerns feel free to email support@wiredextreme.com or call toll free 1-888-389-3038.

A quarter of the red ring of death shows up when i turn on my xbox. What do i do


2 red lights means the console is overheating, you can try and leave the console alone and see if that cools it down, sometimes that works. If it doesnt you need to get it fixed, I used the Xbox360 repair guide and fixed my son's xbox, no problem, or you can send it in...good luck

My sons xbox shows 1 red light


One thing that people say you can do is leave it under towels for about 15 minutes. Then when you take the towels of it should have overheated and it will show 2 lights. Then if you turn it off, and put it by a window or someplace cool, it should cool down and be fine. This is a risky move though. It may become to overheated. And if when you take the towels of it blinks 1 light then 2 lights, that means it did overheat but it has the same problem so when you let it cool of it will still have 1 light.

A red ring is around my xbox start up button


How may lights are showing up?

3 red light is GPU and the CPU overheating,

2 red lights is general overheating

1 red light is E74 and 4 red lights is the av cable.

For the 1, 2, 3, red lights you will need to get it fixed you can either send it in to do this or repair it yourself

My xbox has three red flashing lights, how can I get it working again?


My sons Xbox had the 3 red lights! It depends what colour of light is showing on your power pack the colour indicates what the problem is! The light will either be red,amber or green, my sons light was amber and that was due to a faulty power pack, Microsoft were very obliging and replaced the power pack free of charge,it arrived in 3 working days! Here is a link that will take you through the different lights and how to fix the problem!

All four lights in the ring are red and flashing, the power light is green and not flashing.


the 4 red rings means that the av cable on your xbox cant be be detected, try to unplug it from the xbox and plug it back in. if that doesnt work if you have another xbox try hooking it up to that one, to see if you might have a bad cable. or try cleaning the metal part of the cable with a dry cloth. if nothing works i would do 1 of 2 things. 1. get a new av cable for the xbox, or 2 trying and get a replacement from microsoft.

Xbox 360 not working


Call 1-800-4MY-XBOX if you see red rings around the power light.  If you just bought it 7 months ago, it is still under warranty.  Do not use one of the custom shops who say they will fix the red ring errors as this will void your warranty with Microsoft.
