Your LSU graphics sub-processing unit has failed. Trade it in to Gamestop for $20 and put it towards the purchase of a Wii or PS3.

E 74

The E74 error seems to be related to video problems. It's occasionally caused by a faulty AV cord, but more often than not, the solder on the ANA/HANA (in HDMI models) scaling chip has come loose.
Before the error, the system usually starts showing graphical problems like lines across the screen or snow. It's accompanied by one red light in the lower right-hand quadrant.

To fix it, unplug everything that's connected to your xbox and leave it sitting there cordless for 5-30 minutes. Then plug everything back in and play, it should be fine now. You'll have to do this every other time you turn it on however. Another solution is:

Wrap pennies in electrical tape and weigh the ANA/HANA down.

How do i fix an error 74 on an xbox360

The E74/E6x/E4x/E8x are famous error codes that have plagued many Xbox 360 gamers. This error codes will be displayed on your screen, each indicating different problem with your Xbox 360. It's usually defined by the single red light or 1 Red Light Error lit up at lower right quadrant on the Red Ring of Light on your Xbox 360 console.
E74: There is high chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip near the AV cable connection) it can also be caused by a faulty AV cable so check that first. In some cases it is a problem with the GPU and may be repairable by using the Xbox 360 Repair Guide. Xbox 360 E74 error has reported to increasing a lot for the newer Xbox 360 version.
Hope this was helpful?

Red ring around on off button

Each quadrant on the set of flashing red lights indicates a different issue. If all of the lights but the first section are flashing, this means a general hardware failure has occurred. There is little to be done other than trying to unhook and reattach your cables. This problem is a sure sign a visit to the repair center is in your console's future. If the problem is indicated in the second quadrant of the system, it is merely overheating. As too many hours of GRAW will do that to a unit, the proposed cure here is to unplug the unit from the power supply, let it sit to cool down, and perhaps begin scouting for a better location to store your precious investment.

A problem indicated in the third quadrant of the Xbox 360 ring of light is diagnosed as a hardware failure. Once again, try re-inserting all of your cords and cables, but this problem should definitely be dealt with by the repair center. If all four lights are flashing on the front of your console, this is perhaps the easiest problem to fix. This is an issue with the AV cable not being properly inserted into the back of the console. The cure? Just make sure the cord "clicks" once it has been inserted into the unit. If that doesn't work, of course call the repair center, but the four lights are the easiest of the problems to rectify.

Red light in bottom right quadrant

Hey there sounds like you might have the red ring of death. Which is usually a hardware failure.

1. Try turning your Xbox 360 on and off.
2. Make sure all your cords and cables are firmly plugged in.
3. Once you have tried all of those trouble shooting tips, turn on your xbox and see if you get an error screen.
4. This will usually be a black screen with multiple languages on it. on the upper left or right corner a letter E followed by a number will appear.
5. If it is an E74 error, then call 1-800-4my-Xbox
6. Microsoft has extended the warranty for Xbox 350 with the E47 error

Don't worry if your warranty has expired they will extend it when you call.

Hey cosmosis08, this error specifically means a bad A/V cable. Try using a different HDMI cable :)

If you have a snapped AV cable/HDMI cable then try getting anonther one from your local gaming store. If you have had the E74 error then contact MS support for assistance. Its not covered under the free 3 year warranty but if your xbox is less than a year old it can be repaired for free or replaced. Your hard drive will stay with you though. The bottom right quadrant should illuminate red, I have this problem with one of my xbox 360s & it is worse than RROD. If it isn't the AV cable its the GPU or CPU broken

Xbox 360

What is the error code at the bottom of the screen & check for flashing red lights on the power button if 3 illuminate it the infamous RROD(Red Ring of Death-google it) which you will get a free repair for if its the bottom right quadrant flashing red then its most probably E74 or E61. E61 is a hard drive related problem so try playing without it, & E74 is the AV cable snapped inside or the GPU/CPU inside the xbox 360 has weak solders on it, I suggest MS support ASAP.

No picture or sound on the tv

where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!
