Found 29th May 2007
hi everyone,
please help!!

when i come to play on my 360 the first time i turn it on the console turns on but no display.
so i turn off and turn back on and still nothing! on the third atempt (3rd everytime) it comes on and seems to work fine.

every so often say once every 3 weeks i get the e74 error and one flashing red light on botom right (when console is stood up right, it on the bottom right)


looked around on the web but can't find any solutions. do i need to send it back to microsoft for repair? don't like the idea cos i've heard that you get a 2nd hand one back!

any help would be great

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.

i saw that on a website but don't have a spare cable to try and don't wanna go spending more cash when i don't have too

Is there anyone you know who has a xbox 360 that you could borrow a cable from just to test it.

Other than that it looks like its a repair job.

no ufortunatly i'm a loaner
nah they've all got george forman ps3's.
but tempted to get one from play, as some people say they give a better pic anyway

if it does turn out to be the cable i have a couple i could sort you out (sold the 360)

standard av (official) - £4 inc
standard av + vga (3rd party) - £10 inc

but of course i'd make sure it is that before buying another one . if it does work in the end and stays on, chances are its something inside the console

Joytech XBox 360 Digital AV RGB SCART Cable

Andy, where do you live, maybe someone on the forum could pop round to your house with an av cable.
