Hi Elizabeth 101,

Regrettably Best Buy™ stores do not actually process repairs on video game hardware.

If you are under your manufature's warranty through Microsoft you could contact 800-4MY-XBOX (800-469-9269) and they should be able to assist you.

Cordially,
Jon
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Is the E 74 error fixable and What does it mean?


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

How to fix the 3 red rings of death on the xbox 360


I tried to follow some video tutorials from youtube but none of them worked. So I realised I'd have to spend some money on real tutorials and tools. I was a little sceptical but I bought it any way and it worked just fine.
Eventually you'll have to spend some money on it. I recommend you get your hands on this set, you'll get your guides and tolls and it's all you need to fix it at home.

My xbox 360 has frozen,and all it says is E74. How do I fix this?


Your machine has succumbed to the RROD RED RING OF DEATH error.

The Xbox 360 e74 is one of the many types of Xbox error codes that can affect your console at any given time. Thousands of Xbox 360 consoles worldwide are affected by these various errors, and one of the most common of them is the e74 Xbox error, which is currently affecting your console, as well as preventing you from gaming on it. Today you are going to learn what causes the Xbox e74 problem, as well as whether you can fix it yourself.

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.

Although you could fix your Xbox e74 problem by sending your Xbox 360 back to Microsoft for repair, the best method you can actually employ is to fix your Xbox yourself.
Here's why-
* You will be without an Xbox 360 console for at least a couple of weeks if you send your console away for repair. Why put up with this when you can fix the Xbox 360 e74 issue yourself in a matter of hours?
* If your warranty has expired then you will have to pay to have your console repaired, and although there is a cost involved in purchasing the necessary items for Xbox repair, you will still save around $100 by carrying out the repairs yourself.

If you want to fix the Xbox e74 error yourself, then you will need to invest in a video repair guide. These come in digital download format, and can be purchased online for a reasonable price (you won't need to spend anything over $30) You really need to buy one if you want to fix your Xbox 360, as written instructions just aren't detailed enough.

To ensure that you get the best deal, purchase one that covers ALL Xbox error codes (many only offer information about the "red ring of death", so you need to carefully read the sales page to ensure that it teaches you how to fix any type of Xbox error) Look also for a money-back guarantee, free customer support and free video samples to that you can check the quality of the product.

Some have used damp towels to bring the temp down - but ultimately, the proper repair entails disassembly of the xbox - down to the processor - removing the old hard thermal paste compund, adding new thermal paste, and re-assembling.

There are MANY guides and videos you can search google for to crack open your 360 case if you are up to the challenge.
