This is the display chip overheating and you need to stop this to be able to play.

You can use a good guide or you can send it in and get it fixed.

Hello ray_gut21

This error is related to a hardware malfunction. As a general rule, this means that you'll have to take your console in for repair. You should have a 3 years warranty on the XBox, which covers the E74 error, otherwise you'll have to pay a fee. For more information, you'll have to contact Microsoft Xbox support directly.

Before doing so, there may be a way to avoid this. Can you tell me if there's a red light showing around the power button? If so, how many?

Hope to hear from you soon,

ajblaj

When i turn on my xbox it shows up system error and shows e 74 at the bottom. the xbox power button flashes red.


That means your Xbox has an internal error and most likely shows one flashing light when you turn it on. This is common in all Xbox consoles and there is no way to fix this unless you have warranty, You can contact Xbox for a replacement at 1-800-4MY-XBOX or through their website, Xbox.com/support. If you are no longer covered by warranty, you are going to have to buy a replacement console.

I was playing Red Dead Redemtion and the screen went out and said to go to this website and at the bottom it had a E 74


You have the E 74 error, which means that your Xbox 360 is broken. You will have to send it to Microsoft to have them fix it. Is it still under warranty?

My xbox 360 is blinking red on the lower right quadrant of the ring. the screen says system error and E 74 in big letters at the bottom


This is a general hardware failure,if your console is less than 3 years old and has not been tampered with in any way:ie the case has not been opened, it is covered by microsofts 3 year warranty,so microsoft will fixit free of charge, visit www.xbox.com/support to arrange a repair,
or if the warranty does not apply, it is basically the same fix as rrod so there are plenty of guides on this site or on youtube if you want to tackle it yourself.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

Turned on xbox 360 got a black screen saying system error and E 74 at the bottom of the screen and theres 1 red light on bottom right of power button


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.

On my xbox 360 one red light appears in the bottom right hand corner and on the screen it shows e 74 error


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.

I Just dont know!!!!!!!


E74 is an AV cable error/ GPU hardware failure error. If you left your system on all night and all day there is a very good chance you overheated it. If you have a warranty i would use it If not call MS to see if there Manufacturing warranty will cover it. Just tell them that you have E74 error and then youll have to give them the S/N off the Xbox and they will let you know if it will cost you anything. You can look up this error on
