What does it mean when theres one red bar flashing on my xbox and the code it gave me was E 74?


firstly if you get the 3 red lights then microsoft reapair your console for free so long as you purchased it no more than 3 years before you send it back for repair. The 3 red lights are a sign of overheating, got so hot that the solder balls on the cpu or gpu chip melted, and due to the fact the the 360 motherboard is able to flex a little, when the 360 was turned off and cooled down these solder balls solidified again, however they solidified in the wrong place or in two halfs etc. and so the 360 shows the 3 red lights to indicate this fault.

I have code error 74


Code E74 1 red light flashing and error message on screen right? It is the scaler chip, it happens because the scaler chip starts overheating. If you stop the heat build up on the chips then you should be fine.

You can send your Xbox 360 back in for repair or fix it yourself with a good Xbox 360 Repair guide

ERROR 74 on xbox 360


It's a AV cable error. Try the switch on your cable. Move the switch while the console is on then turn it off and back on again. If this doesn't work then do the xclamp fix. This fix is not just for the 3 red rings.

Xbox360, i flashing red light bottom right error message


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........
