E74 is a display problem basically how to GPU(graphics) is connected to the CPU(Computer) the only way i know of fixing it is to reball the motherboard , but if i were you i would just try sticking a couple of cotton buds into the back of the xbox 360 where the fans spin and stop them from spinning while it is turned on, make sure you have the video lead plugged in as well, after a while you will have two flashing lights on it instead of one when that happens turn off the xbox and let it cool down for 10 minutes then try to turn it on it should work. Thats a temporary fix and no guarantee that will fix it for good

Officially, Microsoft calls E74 a "general hardware failure" although it seems to be a video error. In some cases, the cause is reported to be a bad video cable while others blame the HANA video scaler chip. We will be covering a wide range of relatively quick fixes for the E74 error on your Xbox 360. The cause of the E74 error and solutions to it are discussed in the guide.

This will help. Your best bet is to send in the console to Microsoft to get it repaired.

My Xbox 360 has a similar E74 error. It can mean a lot of different things, but it's usually a hard drive issue. If you're lucky, that's what it will be for you too. Follow these steps for a possible fix:

  1. With everything plugged in and ready to go, remove the video cable from your Xbox 360.
  2. Turn your Xbox 360 on. It should start flashing red lights indicating that there's a video problem.
  3. Count slowly to 10. After 10 seconds, plug the video cable back in.
  4. Cross your fingers.
If this works, all you should have to do is follow this process every single time you turn your 360 on. It's a bummer, but it happens when parts age. If this doesn't work, try removing your hard drive completely (assuming you can). If that's all that will fix it, you'll need a new Xbox 360 hard drive... this could however still be covered by warranty if you're lucky!

E74 problem


E74 error code on your Xbox360 basically means a 'general hardware error'. You may also be getting the infamous 'red ring of death' as shown by three red lights around the power button. The most likely cause of this error is over heating.
Microsoft has extended their one year warranty to three years for this problem. I would call Microsoft Xbox support before trying anything else. Their number is (800) 469-9269.
If you are still covered by the warranty, they will send you a box to ship your Xbox360 to them, they will either repair or replace it, and send it back to you, and they will pay for the postage! Downside is that this can take at least three weeks.

This is a GPU problem more than likely the graphic processor is wearing out . If this is not fixed it can cause E74 Error and you have to buy a new 360 or get it repaired . For repairs visit TheXboxExpert.dotcom . This is my good friend and he can fix E74 so that you dont have to shell out $300-$400 for a new xbox360 .

An E74 error is something only MS can fix, fortunately they recently added E74s to the list of 3 year warranty problems. So you'll have to call their hotline and order a fix for it.

Error code E74 on xbox 360


E74: AV cable error... There is a problem with the AV cable, try using a different AV cable. If the cable is known to be working then there is a 90% chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip connected directly to the AV cable) in rare cases it is the GPU
