Normally, the E74 error code pertains to a memory storage device connected tot he console having some errors. If the issue persists without the HDD attached, it is most likely due to a general hardware failure thus your console needs repair. Try to contact MS Xbox Support and see if your warranty is still up for a free repair or check your local technician maybe they can fix it for you.

Code e74 one red light bliking


Hi,


"E74"error code is caused by a memory storage device attached to the Xbox 360 encountering a hardware error. You can try to remove the HDD and restart the console without it, if the E74 code won't appear it means that you need a HDD replacement. But if it still does appear, there is a general hardware failure in the system and it might require servicing. You can contact Microsoft Xbox Support for it to be fixed, out of warranty console will be charged $99 dollars by the way. The warranty period is three years.


Thank you !!

It has an error e 74


E74 means a hardware malfunction, might be due to a bad memory storage deive attached to the Xbox 360 which is the hard drive (HDD). Steps to do:

• turn of the console and remove the HDD
• restart the console without HDD
• if it works without the E74 error, the HDD is bad and needs replacement
• if still having the same error even without the HDD, it's is an internal hardware failure inside the sytem already

If all else fails, please contact Microsoft Xbox Support for it ti be repaired. Hope this helps.. Cheers!

Single red flashing light and system error E74 showing on the TV


The E74 error is caused by the scaler chip at the back of the console taking too much heat. To fix it you need to stop the heat build up.

You can do this yourself using a good guide that will show you how to fix it with household items or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

My xbox 360, had the E74 error problem, with 1 red light! I fixed that, but now it starts up as a working xbox but when i put a game in it wont play it, and just says play Dvd, can u help Please!


Hello rickster32

As you have mentioned that you got a E74 error problem which you got fixed up, E74 problem is a hardware related issue so the problem you are now facing is linked to a messed up dvd rom firmware issue.

It is very much possible that post you have fixed E74 problem your dvd-rom firmware could have gone corrupt and now is not recognizing the game discs and only playing dvd's

It would be advisable to send your unit to MS support if in case it is under warranty

Red light blinking system error E74


this might be a hardware failure. try turning it off then back, or try keeping a fan on it when you play on and if that doesn't work call 1800myxbox there you'll find step by step instructions to send it down to texas and get it fixed. if that happens three times you will recieve a brand new xbox 360 that has that problem fixed. also keep in mind to keep your hard drive before you send it to be fixed. i really hope this helps with your problem
-good luck

The flashing red light comes on with message E74


you are seeing one red light on the powerbutton and E74 on the screen?

E74 can only be caused by either the HDD or the console itself,so you might wanna try using a different HDD with your console, if the issue still persists, then most probably, the console is having a hardware failure,there is a possibility that the HDD PORT is not properly woking w/c is causing the e74 error.

if thats the case, try calling xbox support hotline(1-800-4-MYXBOX) to process a repair for the console,it will be free,because Microsoft is extending the warranty of the consoles for 3yrs from the date of purchase for e74 and 3red light issues.

or you can also process a repair online,that is available at service.xbox.com,just click on "repair my console"


hope i'll help you..:-)

My Xbox 360 is broke


That is a 'general hardware failure' Double check all your connections remove the hdd if you have one and try starting the console again.

This indicates there could be an overheating issue, make sure the system is well ventilated, other than that, a return to Microsoft is possibly your only other solution
