    Correction, E74 is a system error not a hardware failure. Sorry!

Your console has a general hardware failure, if your console is less than 3 years old, and has not been tampered with in any way, ie: the console has not been opened, microsoft will repair this FREE of charge,

One red light flashing on xbox360,code e74 showing on screen


If you have 1 red light flashing it is normally E74 or some other E error you need to stop the heat.

You can send it in and Microsoft will do it for you or you can repair it yourself using a good guide

I got the E74 message on my xbox this morning but i noticed that when i had my xbox on without the av composite cable in there was no lights flashing red so does anyone know weather it just is the cable...


I had the exact same problem. Tried another AV cable and another TV an it did the same thing. After a while it came up 'E74 Error' Only way to know for sure is to maybe try your console with a friends set of wires and see what happens.

Got on red light,E74


An E74 error is when the lower-right quadrant of the ring piece indicator flashes red and displays an error message in multiple languages: "E74 System Error. Contact Xbox Customer Support". The error is caused when there's a video problem with the Xbox's hardware scaler chip being damaged. As of April 14, 2009, the E74 error is now covered by the three-year extended warranty.

The flashing red light comes on with message E74


you are seeing one red light on the powerbutton and E74 on the screen?

E74 can only be caused by either the HDD or the console itself,so you might wanna try using a different HDD with your console, if the issue still persists, then most probably, the console is having a hardware failure,there is a possibility that the HDD PORT is not properly woking w/c is causing the e74 error.

if thats the case, try calling xbox support hotline(1-800-4-MYXBOX) to process a repair for the console,it will be free,because Microsoft is extending the warranty of the consoles for 3yrs from the date of purchase for e74 and 3red light issues.

or you can also process a repair online,that is available at service.xbox.com,just click on "repair my console"


hope i'll help you..:-)
