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 light Error) 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.

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.
If you just got it take it back, if you have had it for a little while you need to call microsoft and send it off for repair

Got on red light,E74


An E74 error is when the lower-right quadrant of the ring piece indicator flashes red and displays an error message in multiple languages: "E74 System Error. Contact Xbox Customer Support". The error is caused when there's a video problem with the Xbox's hardware scaler chip being damaged. As of April 14, 2009, the E74 error is now covered by the three-year extended warranty.

One red light flashing error code E74


Is it still under warranty?
Call the company and get an online tech. I had to send mine back...  It took a week to receive a box from the company and about 6 weeks to get it back. I forgot about it! It takes a while, but works well!

E74 one blinking relight


Ok. You have a serious problem that you CAN NOT fix, but DO NOT FEAR! Microsoft has come out and said that if you have red lights that flash, more commonly known as "Red Rings of Death", they will send you another system. So all you need to do, is contact Microsoft and tell them your problem. The e74 error should say in screen "Hardware malfuction" because I had the same thing before. So don't worry about it and just talk to Microsoft. Good luck!

P.S. If you bought it from somewhere popular like Walmart somewhat recently, they will also take it back for you because that is what I did. Mine got the e74 error within the first month and I just sent it back to Walmart and got a 100% refund!
