Have you tried a different A/V cable? If you have and still get the same problem it is a 90% chance it is the scaler chip. You can try to fix it yourself but unless you are EXTREMELY good at electronic soldering I would not recommend you try to fix it yourself. If it is still under warranty send it back to xbox and they will change it for you with a new scaler chip that has a heatsink built onto it. If you are out of warranty and can not do it yourself I would take it to a game store and they usually can fix it for you for probably around 70-80 dollars (I would not pay more than that because it is about a 30-40 minute job).

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?

Every time i connect my av. chord it gives me the e74 but when its just the pwer chord it works ive bought a new av chord it has the same thing showing up


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.

The Xbox 360 has got its first ring (one quter red)and it has in bold writing E 74 do you know what this means and how to solve this?


The E74 error is a general system failure. The CPU and or GPU processor chips have come unseated due to overheating and mothrboard flex issues. The motherboard will need to be reflowed by a service technician. Good luck!
