I had the same problem,they say it might have to do with the power supply or the cold solders inside the xbox not connecting the chips on the board.If it's under warranty send it back.I on the other hand i cracked mine open (void warranty),so i tried the towel trick(wrapping your xbox with 2-3 towel and running it for 15 minutes then cooling down for another 10 mins)worked for me.Although i have to do this almost every other day.Good luck!!

My xbox crashes, then one red light on the bottom right hand corner of the controller port and it flashes


E74: AV cable error... There is a problem with the AV cable, try using a different AV cable. If the cable is known to be working then there is a 90% chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip connected directly to the AV cable) in rare cases it is the GPU.

ERROR 74 on xbox 360


It's a AV cable error. Try the switch on your cable. Move the switch while the console is on then turn it off and back on again. If this doesn't work then do the xclamp fix. This fix is not just for the 3 red rings.

Red flashing lights


This issue may occur for one of the following reasons: • The audio-visual (AV) cable is not connected correctly or is not plugged in to your Xbox 360 console. • The console is not detecting the cable.This issue does not occur if the AV cable is plugged incorrectly into a television, a stereo, or a VCR.

Note This issue occurs only on Xbox 360 consoles that do not have a High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) AV port.

this is a scaler chip problem, a problem with the av cables, or a GPU issue. try borrowing someones av cables, if not, you can try baking the system.

E 74


E74 is an error with your AV cable and or your GPU / Scaler chip. If you can swap out your AV cable to see if that works if not you will have to contact MS, as there is no quick fix for this error if your cables dont work. Hope this helps.
