Tried the eraser fix on the memeory chips and no luck. My memory chips did NOT have the rubber tape on as stated would be there. Used double stick gummy tape and a red "pink pearl" eraser and no success - after all that!Refuse to try the "towel trick". Any other ideas or things to look at? Please help.

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.
<span>Take two bare ends of a Q-tip stick them in the fan slots (make sure hard drive is out / memory unit(s) or games) . Then wait till your xbox 360 turns off or has 2 flashing red lights. Then wait 30 minutes for it to cool down. Then put hard drive/ memory unit(s) back in then turn on xbox 360 then it will work. (This will not be a permanent fix) and there you go </span><br /><br /><span> Good luck,</span><br /><br /><span> Damian128</span>
e73 is a simple one to fix, ive done loads and they are the exactly the cause or the same as the e74 and to fix you need to strip your machine down and re-heat the solder points especially concentrating on the back end of the motherboard near the ANA chip and ethernet chip.
ive been warned not to provide guides on helping you but just to say you can find step by steps on the internet free.
Im guessing due to needing batteries that your Guitar is the Wireless type ?!
Have you correctly Synchronised your Xbox 360 with the Guitar controller ?
to do this, Turn on the Xbox and Guitar press the round "sync" button on the bottom of the guitar, next to its Ethernet port, and also press the small round sync button on the Xbox 360 (located to the left of the memory slots on the front face) at the same time, the rings of light on both the Xbox and the guitar will Turn in a clockwise motion letting you know they are synching, after that the Xbox will assign the guitar to a controller slot. then it should work.
If this doesn't work then im afraid your guitar may have a faulty wireless chip, which would require you to get a replacement.
This problem is typically caused by a hardware failure. Turn off your Xbox 360 console, disconnect and then reconnect all cables. Turn your Xbox 360 console on again. If an Xbox hard disk is attached to your Xbox 360 console, turn off your Xbox 360 console, and then remove the hard disk. Turn on your Xbox 360 console, and then test for the error message. If you don't see the error message, turn off your Xbox 360 console, and then reattach the hard disk. Alternate testing with the hard disk attached and removed to see whether the error message occurs only when the hard disk is attached.
If an Xbox Memory Unit (MU) is plugged in to your Xbox 360 console, turn off your Xbox 360 console, and then remove the memory unit. Turn on your Xbox 360 console, and then test for the error message. If you don't see the error message, turn off your Xbox 360 console, and then reinsert the memory unit. Alternate testing with the memory unit inserted and removed to see whether the error message occurs only when the memory unit is inserted.
If you continue to experience this problem, contact Xbox Customer Support. For more information about how to contact Xbox Customer Support, please visit the Xbox Support (http://www.xbox.com/support/) Web site.
I suggest using three copper pennies per Ram chip. Use a slight
amount of reusable adhesive to stick the pennies together and then to
adhere to the ram chips. Also use pennies made before 1983, they're %100 Copper and make better heat sinks. Note: If problems persist, remove the black screws on
the bottom of 360, but keep the silver screws.
i dont think its a maor ailure beacause if it was a maor failure then your xbox 360 can"t work .
