Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
When I turn on my Xbox 360 a red light blinks and the screen says E 74 error.
The cause of the E74 Error might be overheating of your console and for avoiding such error messages 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 the console such as cooling the machine through a pedestal fan etc. But as your Xbox already have E74 Problem, You can either send your Xbox to Microsoft for repair ( just for your information Microsoft is no longer providing Extended warranty for E74 Problem), Microsoft generally takes 3-4 weeks to fix the problem. If you can't wait for a month (I know most XBox gamers can not wait without their favourite Gaming device), You can also fix E74 Problem yourself and that too within an hour without any technical knowledge. I would suggest you to check out the DIY Xbox Fix Guide for more information.

Here's your problem
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.
hope that helps

E74 is due to an inherent
engineering flaw and will continue on new consoles until Microsoft institutes a
E 74, E 79, E 71 is shown
on screen and a solution to fix it is by ensuring that your A/V connections on
your Xbox 360 is secured. Another possible cause to the error is that there is
a power surge or outage on your system.
