Xbox E74 Error!?


Ok so I traded my friend for an Xbox 360. It is the really old one and the night I got it it got the one red light with an e74 error. I took it back to him and he fixed it then 3 days later it did the same thing. He told me that the AV cable is really jacked up and you have to hold it in a certain position for it to work. I was wondering if the problem is internal or could it be the AV cable? PLEASE HELP!!

  1. Your friend is ripping you off unless you gave him a dollar for the xbox.

    The xbox is basically going out. You need about 80 dollars worth of work done on it to get it back into working condition. And I’m thinking your friend is just doing a really ghetto repair.

  2. That means there’s 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). Go to the Microsoft XBox 360 customer support and send them your claim. When I had this code I had to mail Microsoft my XBox 360 console so they can fix it (E74 error code also gives an extended 3 year warranty, so I got mine fixed for free). If it is a video card/scaler chip failure then it MUST be sent in, unless you’re qualified to fix it yourself (highly unrecommended!).
