You could try and lie. Just call and dont tell them its broken then get them to ship you another one.

Its worth a try..

If that doesnt work out try..

They will fix for cheaper then what M$ charges you.

Good luck,

When i turn my xbox 360 on one light in the bottem right corner flash red and it reads E 74 error but when i unplug the xbox from the t.v it doesnt flash red, does this mean we need a new wire

one red light means the video card is dead not the cord and unfortunately cannot be fixed and to make it worse this error is not covered by warranty, if you want it under warranty tel microsoft wen you ring that it has 3 red flashing lights (RROD) not 1 as this error is covered by warranty

E74 ON MY XBOX 360

THIS IS LINKED with the 3 red lights, or the red ring of death, so as long as its not 3 years old, Microsoft will repair it in the 3 year extended warranty, so head to and get a repair, should take about 1-2 weeks.

My xbox has 3 flashing red lights,

You have the 3 rings of death.Overheat related problem. Fixable
If no one's opened the unit it might be still covered under Microsoft's extended warranty. They took it out to 3 years.
If they wont cover it. There are folks like me out there who can fix it.

Xbox 360 is not coming on screen just red light on console

No! Check with 800 support the warranty was extended on most xbox 360 with the 3 red lights. Ours was repaired when we thought our warranty had ended.

Try using your xbox 360 console without your hardrive. If the problem continues, the tree red lights means general hardware failure. Microsoft covers those with an extended warranty and you can have it repaired for free.

There are three red lights flashing


That is affectionately know as the Red Ring of Death!

Never fear, Microsoft provided an extended warranty on this fault! On the rear of your Xbox there should be a label with a date on, this will tell you the manufacture date.

Goto Xbox Support

and follow the link on the right for the repair process.
