Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
of us suddenly when we turn on our Xbox 360 console one day we got one
red light flashes on the ROL (Ring of Light) around the Xbox 360 power
button, and we got an Error message appearing on the TV screen "System
error" also might occur with any error code like E66, E67, E68, E71, E74
or E77, all the same.
When you get any of these messages appearing on your screen with one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.
So, first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more.
If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you.
The Xbox 360 console might even keep giving you the same error code even after you remove the hard drive so it will then appear to be a fault with your Xbox 360 console not the hard drive & also in a case like this we need to contact Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the console.

First check your AV cable. Unplug it, put it back in, turn back on. If that doesn't work, long story short, call support (18004myxbox).
Error explanation below:
E-74 - 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 doing the x-clamp replacement (error 102)
102 error - Error in the "Digital Backbone" (CPU/GPU/RAM), this is usually caused by a cold solder joint between the GPU and the mainboard.
There are two theories to fixing this one deals with the "X" clamps that hold down the chips. The other involves re-Heating the chips. DO NOT attempt either of these if your console is still under warranty. If your console is still under warranty return it to the store where it was purchased or call MS to have it replaced.

Yes I know it well . There is a small circle of solder balls
under the GPU that have pulled away from the main pc board.
I had to bulild re-flow workstation for this specific problem .
The GPUis getting so hot that it warps the pc board and
pulls its connections right of the board .
Bottom line is the GPU needs to be re soldered to the pc board
and properly clamp down . over heating the GPU X clamp mod
is a temporary fix and hazardous to unit.

Its the E code at the bottom of the writing thats important, if its E74 and your console is less than 3 years old and has not been tampered with in any way:ie it has not been opened,you are covered by microsofts 3 year warranty visit www.xbox.com/support if its any other error code, re-post with the code we may be able to help.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.
