This might be the Hard Drive failure code. Remove the HDD and see if the 360 boots without. If it does start-up, turn 360 back off and reattach HDD, unplug AV cable and restart the 360, when all 4 red lights start to flash, plug AV cable back in. The 360 should reboot itself and depending on how messed up the HDD is, the 360 might read the HDD and it might not. If it does read the drive, I would get a mem card and transfer as much info. as you can to the card and then get a new HDD.

My xbox 360 has 3 red lights and is not working


Turn your Xbox off for like 3 hours..... Turn it back on, if ERROR 74 shows up then you have RROD "Red Ring Of Death".... https://myservice.xbox.com/en-us/Pages/Welcome.aspx If you haven't had it for three years yet, you can send it in to Microsoft and they will fix it free of charge... Next time, try to use the Xbox less.... The more you use it the more it is prone to overheating melting a motherboard chip thus causing error 74

E74 is due to an inherent engineering flaw and will continue on new consoles until Microsoft institutes a revision.


E 74, E 79, E 71 is shown on screen and a solution to fix it is by ensuring that your A/V connections on your Xbox 360 is secured. Another possible cause to the error is that there is a power surge or outage on your system.

1 red light e 74 code


E74 is an error related to video. It's either:
  • Bad video cable
  • Bad graphic chipset issue
Try a different video cable, unplug and plug it back in to make sure the video cable is seated properly. If it's neither of these issues, the only thing to do is to contact Microsoft's customer service and get it replaced/fixed.

360 error 74 message


The cause of E-74 with one red light Error might be overheating of your console and for avoiding such error in future you need to put your machine at an open space. Ensure that it is placed near the window or you can also make some external arrangement for cooling of console such as cooling the machine through a pedestal fan.
But as your Xbox already have E74 with one red light Problem which can be solved by only repairing it, no other alternative.
Either you can send your Xbox to Microsoft (Please note that microsoft is no longer providing extended warranty for E74 with one red lightError) and wait for 3-4 weeks. If you don't want to wait for a month, you can also fix E74 with one red light problem with the help of this DIY Video, the guide will explain step by step approach to fix the problem. Choice is yours.
