E 74 Error


The E74 Error is a problem with your graphics chip. It's very much like the Red Ring of Death and you need a repair. MS warranties units for 3 years from the E74 and if you are still in this warranty I suggest going to www.xbox.com/support and requesting a free repair from them. If you aren't in warranty any longer I would suggest seeking a skilled professional to assist you.

Red ring on console


As you didn’t state how many red lights are on your Xbox i will post all the Red ring of death errors.
All sections red (4 Red Lights) = Could not detect the AV cable. Check all of the cables at the back of the console.
3 Red lights (Sections 1, 3, 4) = General hardware failure. Contact Microsoft Support.
2 Red lights (Sections 1, 3) = Overheating. Make sure that your console is in a well-ventilated area with a good air flow and try again.
1 red light (Section 4)= Hardware failure. This is usually combined with an error code on screen. Contact Xbox support.

Error 74 red flashing light in third spot, x box shut down


First thing you do is check all cables!! if that doesnt help: the good news is that the 1 red light and error E 74 show the same fault, the bad news is that you need to contact support as it looks like a hardware faliure which is normal for the xbox (here is the link to the MS troubleshoot page)
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941377?sd=xbox
This is not the classic "red ring of death" so im not sure where you are going to stand with the 3 year warranty

My xbox 360 has error 74


The E74 malfunction is a problem believed to be associated with the system's video output cables and/or hardware scaler chip. The problem involves unusual screen patterns, the appearance of an on-screen error message, and finally a flashing red light in the lower right quadrant of the power ring. When a system suffers from the failure the on-screen message reads "E74 System Error. Contact Xbox Customer Support."

You could send it in to Microsoft of you can follow the steps as outlined in this You Tube video.

One flashing light not the whole ring


Make sure that all the cables are plugged in nice and tight so that none of them are loose then turn your console back on and it should work

E74


The E-74 error is also due to overheating and the RROD fix also cures this fault, hope that helps :)

Error 74


E74 is an error that has two possibilities one is that your AV cable has gone bad. Swap it out and see if that fixs the issue.

If that doesnt work then you need to contact MS, your GPU / Scaler chip has gone bad and MS needs to replace it. There is no fix for this like there is for the red ring error. hope this helps
