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.

Xbox-360 elite lower right hand red flashing led light code error E73


If you get the Xbox 360 1 red light message, it means that the problem is either with the DVD drive, or with the hard drive.

Fortunately, the Xbox 360 1 red light message is not something that you should worry about. In order to identify which of the two drives the Xbox 360 1 red light messages is referring to, just look the code number that the screen displays. DVD drive errors are identified with the codes E64, E65 and E66, whereas hard drive errors are identified with codes E67, E69 and E79.

Once you identify which error the Xbox 360 1 red light message is pointing to, fixing it is really easy. The guide available at Fix-xbox360.info will tell you what to do in each case, as well as what to do in case you get any of the other Xbox 360 lights messages. Check it out.

Xbox 1 flashing red light and e73 system error


e73 is an input/output error. Hopefully you are still under warranty. Contact Microsoft at Toll free: (800) 4MY-XBOX or (800) 469-9269. If you are outside of your warranty period, I believe they will still repair it for $99

The following indicator will flash on and off repeated on the front panel of your Xbox 360 console:

If one red light is flashing and you receive a different error message2.gif or error code than those that were described previously or you don’t receive an error message or code, your console may be experiencing a different issue. In this case, see "References/links."

This problem occurs when your Xbox 360 console experiences a hardware failure.

  2. If an Xbox Hard Drive2.gif is attached to your console, turn off your console, and then remove the Xbox Hard Drive. Turn on your console, and test for the error.

One flashing red light on power on circle


Hey steph 1,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, you may see one flashing red light on your Xbox console if there has been some kind of hardware failure. This failure may have occurred in the console itself or an external accessory, so it's recommended that you disconnect all accessories - including your controllers, hard drive and memory units - then restart the console to see if the problem persists. If disconnecting all of these external devices resolves the problem, then the hardware failure is with one of those accessories.

Please keep in mind that this only applies if there was no error message accompanying the flashing red light. If a numbered error message also appears, you may wish to refer to Microsoft's online support database for more information:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907536/

There you should be able to find links to pages with troubleshooting steps you can take for the most frequently encountered error messages. Additionally, remember that you can always contact Microsoft directly at their toll-free hotline for further assistance: 800-4-MY-XBOX (800-469-9269).

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Do you get an error message on your tv screen? 1 flashing red light means there is a hardware failure such as your DVD drive hard drive, dashboard error ect. Not much can be done about this issue besides having microsoft fix it.
