E74: AV cable error... There is 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) in rare cases it is the GPU.

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)


CHECK ALL LEADS ARE PLUGGED INTO XBOX AND TV PROPERLY IF NOT IT'S KNACKERED

Well they should fix it for free as only got it at xmas but just my boyfriend might go insane without it. My brother in law only bought his 3 months ago so could use his receipt anyway but just dont wanna have to send it off!

Any idea where it was purchased? Could be as easy as walking into the shop, telling them it's broken and walking off with a shiny new one :thumbsup:
