So i take it that 1 red light in the lower right is a huge problem or what?


1 red light in the lower corner is the E74 error.

Sometimes you will not see E74 but it is the display chip that is overheating.

You need to stop the heat build up and you can send it in for repair or you can use a good Xbox 360 Repair Guide.

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?

Xbox 360 lower left red light error e74


For the e74 error you have to send in your console because this can not be fixed legally with in contract. If your warranty is over i would recommend contacting Microsoft. Best of luck buddy! (i had this problem too)

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..:-)

1 red light flashing


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...........
