Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
What causes it, and how can it get fixed?
The E74 malfunction is a problem believed to be associated with the
system's video output cables and/or hardware scaler chip. The problem
involves unusual screen patterns, the appearance of an on-screen error
message, and finally a flashing red light in the lower right quadrant
of the power ring. When a system suffers from the failure the on-screen
message reads "E74 System Error. Contact Xbox Customer Support."

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.
