That means your Xbox has an internal error and most likely shows one flashing light when you turn it on. This is common in all Xbox consoles and there is no way to fix this unless you have warranty, You can contact Xbox for a replacement at 1-800-4MY-XBOX or through their website, Xbox.com/support. If you are no longer covered by warranty, you are going to have to buy a replacement console.

How do i fix an error 74 on an xbox360


The E74/E6x/E4x/E8x are famous error codes that have plagued many Xbox 360 gamers. This error codes will be displayed on your screen, each indicating different problem with your Xbox 360. It's usually defined by the single red light or 1 Red Light Error lit up at lower right quadrant on the Red Ring of Light on your Xbox 360 console.
E74: 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 using the Xbox 360 Repair Guide. Xbox 360 E74 error has reported to increasing a lot for the newer Xbox 360 version.
Hope this was helpful?

Sreen system error e 74


This problem occurs when the Xbox 360 console experiences a hardware failure. To verify that your console is displaying the E74 error message, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off the console.
  2. Turn on the console.
  3. Verify that your console displays the E74 error message.
If you are experiencing this problem, your Xbox 360 console must be repaired..... Microsoft covers repairs for the E74 error for a period of three (3) years from the original purchase date of the console. If you are outside the initial three-year warranty period, you can still receive console repair service from Microsoft for a fee for the E74 error.

I have the E 74 error how do i fix it?


Hi,

Basically, this problem is caused by overheating, which is often an issue with most high-powered electronic devices.
As heat levels rise inside your Xbox 360 the connection between the motherboard and the video scaler (HANA/ANA) chip is damaged due to the expansion and contraction of the metal connectors.
Once you have experienced the red ring of death e74 once on your Xbox 360, it will continue to happen over and over again until you fix the problem permanently.
The process of repairing the Xbox 360 red light e74 involves opening up your console, removing the hard drive and disk drive (as these get in the way when you are navigating around the narrow confines of the case) and then locating the video scaler chip.
You then remove it from its seating point and clean the connections; an eraser works well for this. It then has to be seated correctly back in its slot. Once this is done and the hard drive and disk drive are re-installed you can put the case back together.
When you turn your console on again it should be free of the e74 error.
Good Luck and have a nice day.

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........

Xbox 360 e74 error


Having the e-74 code is when the video chip on the 360 over heats and becomes un soldered your best bet is to turn the 360 on with a towel over it and wait for 3 red lights the call microsoft and tell them the 3 lights issue dont mention the 1 light or it will cost you dearly around 150$
