You can buy the RROD off eBay for about £8 and that will fix your error. I have used the same kit for this error.

How do I repair the E74 error on the xbox 360


E74 - This error is caused by a cold solder joint under the GPU, (H)ANA-chip or in between. Mostly it is one of the outer solder balls on the side facing the (H)ANA chip so a shim increases the chanced of success quite a bit. Can also be a component that is missing or damaged so look for missing parts near the GPU and the (H)ANA chip. Xbox 360 Error Codes Explained and How to Fix Them

What does error code e74 mean for the x-box 360


The e74 Xbox error's principal cause is overheating, due to excess heat causing damage to various components, and eventually major malfunctions in the hardware of your console. Why is this heat able to build up and cause damage that leads to the Xbox 360 e74 error? This is actually due to cramped case design and a lack of cooling devices such as fans and heat sinks. Although overheating is ususally a problem for all electronic devices, the Xbox 360 does seem to suffer particularly badly from this issue. unless you have a bit of technical knowledge than the best thing would be to A) fix your Xbox e74 problem by sending your Xbox 360 back to Microsoft for repair or B) buy a new one. there is no easy way to permentaly fix it without taking your xbox apart and the "towel trick" which is where you wrap your xbox in a towell power on until it overheats and shutsdown is only a temporary fix and will cause major damage to your xbox in the long run. fixing yourself consists of stabilizing the heat shields by removing the old brackets and replacing them with new heat paste and bolts so the best thing if you are dedicated to doing it yourself would be to probably buy a manual online. you shouldnt need to pay anything over $30 and make sure you get a full manual because alot of them only deal with the "red ring of death" (which is three red rings)
hope this helps

Screen reads,system error and has a trouble code of E 74 What could be the problem?


The Xbox 360 e74 error is a rather common problem on Xbox consoles, with similar roots to the now infamous red ring of death problem.
The e74 issue is actually caused by a problem with the scaler (ANA or HANA) chips located next to the graphics processor inside your Xbox 360.
It is believed that the error with the scaler video chip which causes the e74 error on your Xbox 360 is caused by overheating. This is also the cause of other errors such as the no video problem, as well as red lights in the power ring of an Xbox console.

To fix the Xbox 360 e74 code, there are a few steps you need to take-
1. Firstly, leave this article open, go to your Xbox 360 console and then remove the AV cable. Blow any dust out of it, then re-insert it snugly back into the console until a clicking is heard. Power on your console again and see if the problem has been fixed.
2. If that does not work, borrow another AV cable (get one off a friend or family member, or from your local video game rental shop) Try using this one in your Xbox 360.
3. If replacing the AV cable does not work, then you will have to repair the scaler chip and graphics processor inside your Xbox in order to fix the e74 problem. To do this, you will need an Xbox 360 repair guide, which will contain the video instruction files you need to be able to fix your console properly. You cannot fix the e74 yourself without one.
It is important to note that most Xbox repair guides focus on fixing the "red ring of death". However, the process for repairing the e74 will also be covered in the same guide as well, as it is extremely similar.

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.

Xbox 360 e74 system error


E74 is NOT caused by a bad AV cable, it is NOT caused by the ANA/HANA scaler chip. It is the solder points on the GPU that have cracked. You must use a heat gun and do the XCLAMP to fix it. Shops normally charge $75-100 to fix that.
