System error E 74 is coming up on my xbox360


This problem occurs when the Xbox 360 console experiences a hardware failure. To verify that your console is displaying the E74 error message, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off the console.
  2. Turn on the console.
  3. Verify that your console displays the E74 error message.
If you are experiencing this problem, your Xbox 360 console must be repaired at our service center.
https://myservice.xbox.com/en-us/Pages/Welcome.aspx to start the repair process.

Microsoft covers repairs for the E74 error for a period of three (3) years from the original purchase date of the console. If you are outside the initial three-year warranty period, you can still receive console repair service from Microsoft for a fee for the E74 error.

E74 problem


E74 error code on your Xbox360 basically means a 'general hardware error'. You may also be getting the infamous 'red ring of death' as shown by three red lights around the power button. The most likely cause of this error is over heating.
Microsoft has extended their one year warranty to three years for this problem. I would call Microsoft Xbox support before trying anything else. Their number is (800) 469-9269.
If you are still covered by the warranty, they will send you a box to ship your Xbox360 to them, they will either repair or replace it, and send it back to you, and they will pay for the postage! Downside is that this can take at least three weeks.

My xbox 360 has lines and wrong colors on screen right on startup but never frezzes


This is a GPU problem more than likely the graphic processor is wearing out . If this is not fixed it can cause E74 Error and you have to buy a new 360 or get it repaired . For repairs visit TheXboxExpert.dotcom . This is my good friend and he can fix E74 so that you dont have to shell out $300-$400 for a new xbox360 . If you start seeing black spots during a game SHUT OFF THE xbox360 if left on may cause further damage .

Its got one redring


Might be E74 error, can be fixed usually via reflowing the board. could also be another error, though MOST problems can be fixed via reflowing.
there is a great 6part video guide on YouTube to view for free. 6 videos from the same fellow, each video is a few mins long, and goes over everything for you.

http://www.youtube.com/user/ohiocitysales#p/u and its free unlike some eBook site.

I actually used the same method to fix over 450 Xbox360 units with no problems at all, barring a few (but i have done nearly 500 so you expect a few problems along the way), you just need a few things though like a heat gun and some thermal paste. sounds hard, but it's very easy once you start!

Hope this helps in some way. You really should look over the videos and have a go, if the xbox is no longer under and cover and its broken anyway, you might aswell try.


Also though I should say that if your xbox360 is less then 3 years old, then it is still covered for 3 red light errors and 1red light E74 errors by Microsoft. this is because the problem is so common that they had to extend the length of cover on them two error types.

E74


e74 refers to an error with either the GPU or your av cable

first try switching out av cables if that doesnt work then send it back to microsoft for repairs

if you want to try to fix it yourself try this

Since your AV cable is good, then it definately is your Scaler chip. The only way that you can fix this is if you take your xbox360 apart and resolder the GPU to the motherboard. Now theres about 50 different tutorials out there on how to take your case apart but I found that this tutorial is the best... its straight forward and includes pictures:

http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/Xbox-360-Disassembly.htm

Okay, your xbox is apart. Next, your going to have to remove the x-clamps and GPU. Then you are going to have to resolder the GPU to the motherboard by overheating your GPU. llamma also has a really good write up on this as well. They also sell the tools that you will need, and the washers and bolts you will need.

http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/ring_of_light_x-clamp_fix.htm

Once you've resoldered your GPU, then you might want to consider installing a CPU fan on your outside case to prevent your xbox from overheating in the future. As of now, you cannot buy the new GPU heatsinks which have the heatpipe technology, so this is the best thing to do for the voided xbox's.

Xbox 360 Error E74


Error code E74 is a problem with the AV cables, try using different or new cables and the problem should be fixed for you.

There is a small chance that it can be caused by a hardware issue, such as your encoder chip. But it is safe to say it is probably the cables.

I hope that this has helped to solve your problem, good luck!

E74 on xbox360


YOU DON T NEED TO BUY A NEW ONE. CALL THE XBOX 360 SUPPORT NUMBER LOCATED IN THE BACK OF THE XBOX OR YOU CAN GOOGLE THE SUPPORT NUMBER FOR XBOX.

INFORMED THEM THAT YOU HAVE DONE EVERYTHING AND YOUR XBOX IS NOT WORKING AND YOU HAVE THE RED LIGHT.

THEY WILL REPLACE YOUR XBOX OR FIX IT FOR FREE.
