Red light lower right of ring E74 ERROR ON SCREEN ON XBOX.Can i fix it myself?


I've had friends with the E74 error, and unfortunately it is not covered under the same extended warranty as the red ring of death. However, if you got your Xbox in the last year or so, it should still be covered under the factory warranty, so call up Microsoft Support. Actually, call Microsoft Support anyway, sometimes the warranty information gets lost in the system.

So, providing you can't get satisfaction from their support line, I did come across two videos on youtube.com that showed different ways of "fixing" it. Just so you know, I have absolutely no ways of testing them out and have no way of determining if they will damage your Xbox further. However, if you don't have a warranty and Microsoft won't fix it, it's kinda useless anyway(my buddy used his as a target on the shooting range). The first one shows a way that shouldn't permanently damage the xbox:

But I don't know if you'll get it to work.

And the second one will definitely work, but will kill your xbox after doing it more than a few times. My friend used this trick, and kept his 360 on 24/7 until it quit on him.

These seem like the best of the "fixes" I saw. Hope one of them works for you.

Plays games then stops when red lights start flashing


How may red lights are flashing?

1 red light normally E74 error message on screen

2 red lights overheating

3 red lights the GPU and the CPU have overheated.

4 red lights is the AV cable not plugged in properly.

You can fix the 1, 2, 3, red lights yourself or send it in for a fix

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.

My xbox 360 has error 74


The E74 malfunction is a problem believed to be associated with the system's video output cables and/or hardware scaler chip. The problem involves unusual screen patterns, the appearance of an on-screen error message, and finally a flashing red light in the lower right quadrant of the power ring. When a system suffers from the failure the on-screen message reads "E74 System Error. Contact Xbox Customer Support."

You could send it in to Microsoft of you can follow the steps as outlined in this You Tube video.

I was playing my 360 for a couple of hours....went to sleep for about 10 more hours....(360 is set to auto power off) turned it on today....i get 1 red ring (lower right corner) an messages in different...


E74 is the error code, call xbox (1800-4MY-XBOX) and inform them of this error.
If you have voided your warranty, you will have to resort to buying a new 360 or a new motherboard.

Xbox 360


What is the error code at the bottom of the screen & check for flashing red lights on the power button if 3 illuminate it the infamous RROD(Red Ring of Death-google it) which you will get a free repair for if its the bottom right quadrant flashing red then its most probably E74 or E61. E61 is a hard drive related problem so try playing without it, & E74 is the AV cable snapped inside or the GPU/CPU inside the xbox 360 has weak solders on it, I suggest MS support ASAP.

I Just dont know!!!!!!!


E74 is an AV cable error/ GPU hardware failure error. If you left your system on all night and all day there is a very good chance you overheated it. If you have a warranty i would use it If not call MS to see if there Manufacturing warranty will cover it. Just tell them that you have E74 error and then youll have to give them the S/N off the Xbox and they will let you know if it will cost you anything. You can look up this error on
