Error E74 - Console only - Core
#2
E74: There is high chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip near the AV cable connection) it can also be caused by a faulty AV cable so check that first. In some cases it is a problem with the GPU and may be repairable by doing the x-clamp replacement (see error 0102)

0102 Error in the "Digital Backbone" (CPU/GPU/RAM), this is usually caused by a cold solder joint between the GPU and the mainboard.
There are two theories to fixing this one deals with the "X" clamps that hold down the chips. The other involves re-Heating the chips. DO NOT attempt either of these if your console is still under warranty. If your console is still under warranty return it to the store where it was purchased or call MS to have it replaced.

Is it a premium or base? Take £25 for it? or what is the lowest?
#6
I paid 50 for it within the last 2 months. Its £10 to send.

Core console

£45 delivered?
#7
Sorry cant really se going much more, they have dropped loads in price over the last couple of months and looking on eBay the ones selling for aroun 45-60 are ones with powerblocks so around £25 would be my highest? I assume your not local to Southampton?

Yeah, damn mobile browsing. Back on my pc now anyway.

Now negotiating about the controller..

£11 delivered is ok, can't include the fan grill unfortunately, I need that for another mod.

I tried to help in the other thread :)
How much is the fan grill/ where do you get them?

£11 is deal :)
#14
BTW do you need the metal housing as well? Can include it but it might bump the postage up a bit.
#15
I got a couple from eBay for cheap, just had a quick look and they're about £3 each on there.
#16
umm not sure what you mean can you take a picture and i can tell you :oops:


Also just checking the back clip things are intact well arent they (only ask as i mangled mine as i didnt have the opening tool :roll: )

and what size are the fan grills?
#17
I mean this thing.
http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll10/baconsandwichhukd/N95370.jpg

Back clips are all fine. I have an opening tool but to be honest for the back clips I use a tool I made myself out of a CD spindle.

Fan grill needs to be 60mm.
#18
can you see how much extra will be as if it isn't much i will take it as i think the other broken i one was butchered in a past life; (if thats ok) and will decide then and i tried to use the opening tool but they are pretty **** anyway, so dont know how im going to open the whole thing when i need to but ohh well and will look for the fan grill in a minute :thumbsup:
#19
Err well it'll probably bump the postage up by another 3 quid. Are you sure the old one is butchered? They're pretty solid and hard to butcher! The only mod I know which butchers it is cutting the metal out at the back which improves the airflow (a good thing) like I've done here..

yer i was just thinking about getting the metal case so i can do that :thumbsup: though i would put circles on the plasitc case and put pc grills on it wide spaced ones so air flow still isn't restrices :) is there anyway you could get the delivery down to £13 i dont care how quick it arrives etc?


btw. im glad you got the controller.. it did end up me buying orange box (spent to much money recently lol) but oh well all fun, you haven't by any chance tried the tilt switch xbox controller mod have you? (doing that next weekend or something but instructions are like :| )


Btw if anyone does have another 360 faulty am interested.

Not really sure, it's gonna end up being quite a big heavy package when I get all of that together. I reckon postage is gonna be about 5, 6 or 7 pounds so 15 is really the lowest I can go with the metal frame included..

Havent tried any controller mods yet, might try the LED one next week.

I thought you said £14 (11 + 3)? :thumbsup:
.. or is it £15

i do have one question does the 360 still hold together are well as isnt that where half the clips are?
#25
Yeah my bad, £14.

Theres no clips on the metal frame. The only things that hold the casing together are the clips on the plastic housing and some long screws that go through the bottom part of the metal frame, up through the mainboard and some through the legs on the cd drive which screw into the top part of the case.

yer i know that much i put the same fan in my 360 :thumbsup: I meant as you cut into the plastic and if i rember that much (i might not) isnt there aload of clips there or are they not to hold the case together but more to stop people opening the case?


and i guess deal at £14 :thumbsup: if you find out postage is cheaper then you though would you do a partial refund and be really kind :-D (though i dont expect it to be cheaper)
#27
Nah none of the clips are on that part of the case which I've cut off. They're all around the power input and AV ports.

Ok deal at £14, If postage is cheaper than I think it will be I'll refund you the difference. Moving to PM.
#28
Btw you wanna do paypal or BT? I've got HSBC and Barclays.
#29
dont mind would prefer paypal as i am with Natwest, but it is upto you? also i assume you can't include the DVD drive for £20 del?

k kl u heard of this:
I have a perfectly working 360 and a 3ROD one and i wondered if the DVD drive from one would work in the other (as i plan to give the drive and xbox a window and thought i might as well use the broken console) anyway they where both hitachi but when i plugged in the 3ROD one into the working console it came up with one red light and the E74 appeared yet when i gave the Xbox its old drive back it didnt appear any ideas bad drive...?

Also to everyone else any spare xbox 360's including drives and everything really?

Yeah that's because the drives key didn't match.

If its the same make of drive, in this case hitachi you can just swap the logic boards over and it'll work. Otherwise if changing to a different drive e.g a sammy, you'd have to spoof the drive key from the original drive.

Just wondered as mine is overheating i was planning on getting this:
http://www.thegametrain.com/core-cooler-v2-twin-fans-green-p-705.html

wondeed if it was worth it or if there is a cheaper version? oh and have you sent it yet?

Thanks
#38
Sorry mate haven't posted it yet, will do tomorrow just had a bit of a crisis this week..

I did a few things to stop my console over heating. Installed talismoon fans (much better airflow), put a piece of card over the GPU heatsink taped to the air duct (improves airflow over the GPU) and took the heatsinks off and replaced the thermal paste with a much better type (Arctic silver 5). Having the hole in the side of the case and installing those fans you mentioned should improve the cooling.. But theres more you can do to help.

Oh yeah and my rear fans are running at 12v with a zalman fanmate 2 hacked up and put in between for speed control if I want it.
