Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Says here that Error 74 is an I/O hardware error - HSIO related, could be crc error, or several things. The most probable is a problem with the scaler chip [ ANA or HANA ] chip near the AV cable connection. A faulty AV cable can also cause this so checking this first is advised. This error is covered by Microsoft's 3 year manufacturers warranty so long as no mods have been done to the X-Box.You need to contact Microsoft for a free replacement. Sometimes this can be a GPU error as well which can be fixed by replacing the "x" clamps that hold down the chips. Or a cold soldier joint located between the GPU and the main board could be the problem as well. Sometimes you can reheat the chips. If your X-Box is under warranty at all contact Microsoft first or you may not be eligible for the free replacement. Hope this helps.
