SOURCE: x box wont start

E74 is a video error. First thing to do is check your video cables and ensure they are all seated properly. IF that does not fix the problem try changing your cables out or switching to a different type, ie: switch to HDMI or from HDMI to the AV Cable. However, I just experienced this very same problem a few weeks back and was unable to get anything to work and in the end was relegated to sending the Xbox back to Microsoft for repairs. If you are still under the original 1 year warranty it will obviously be a free repair or if you have an extended warranty from the store you bought it at they should be able to handle it for you. If not it will be $99 for Microsoft if you set the repair through their website or $119 if you call the toll free number and have a person help set up the repair.

Here is a recent article on the E74 error that shows the vast majority of the people who have had the problem got it AFTER the NXE update.

SOURCE: red light blinking system error E74

this might be a hardware failure. try turning it off then back, or try keeping a fan on it when you play on and if that doesn't work call 1800myxbox there you'll find step by step instructions to send it down to texas and get it fixed. if that happens three times you will recieve a brand new xbox 360 that has that problem fixed. also keep in mind to keep your hard drive before you send it to be fixed. i really hope this helps with your problem
-good luck

We have one red light on our x-box


That is a Hardware Error. If the unit is less than 1 year old, Contact microsoft and they will replace the unit for you. As long as it wasn't modified. But I know of any easy fix for that error.

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

1 Red Light, error E 68


E68 is an hard drive error, turn it off and remove your hard drive, try to play a game without it, if it works, turn it off again, replace the hard drive and see how you get on, if it still will not work can you try the hard drive on another xbox, this will tell you if its a problem with the hard drive or an internal problem with the box.
Vote if this helps.

Error 74 red flashing light in third spot, x box shut down


First thing you do is check all cables!! if that doesnt help: the good news is that the 1 red light and error E 74 show the same fault, the bad news is that you need to contact support as it looks like a hardware faliure which is normal for the xbox (here is the link to the MS troubleshoot page)

This is not the classic "red ring of death" so im not sure where you are going to stand with the 3 year warranty

I have a red light on x box and its coming up with error e73


If there is a ring of 3 red lights where the green lights normally are around the power button then you have what gamers call "red ring syndrome" which means that the harddrive for the Xbox has stopped working with the system. The only way you can get this fixed is by contacting Microsoft. They have a warranty repair thing where if this happens you can send it in and they will fix it. Its happened to alot of people's xboxs.

An error message comes on screen when thew xbox 360 is turned on as well as it says up the top (system error .contact xbox customer support )also three red lights flash on and off


This is either an error code or the 3 red lights of death. If it is the 3 red lights, and not an error code, you will be under the extended warranty. If it is an error code, hope u are under your origional warranty.

Red light flashing on the bottom right of power button. error is E68


Hi burnzcity,

It seems you have an issue with a Xbox 360. So, according to Microsoft, one red light flashing means you have a system error and suggest you contact Xbox Customer Support. Here is a link that should provide you some assistance.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong
