So i was playing hd remix and the graphics were a little glitchy (3 win stars and glitchy life bars) so i restart my xbox. It boots up and i see an error saying contact xbox support error e74
I looked into it and found it could be numerous things such as the power brick, the av cable, the hard drive, and finally the gpu/cpu overheat problem we love so much
so far i tested the av cable switch it from hdmi to component and both still give me the error. the power brick is working just fine. And i also booted up my xbox without the hard drive in so it’s not that either.
My only option is to repair. Now i know i can repair it with thermal paste and nylon washers on the heatsink. But I don’t really wanna touch the inside of my xbox. On top of that i hear the repair fee is anywhere from $40 - $140 I wouldn’t mind paying but i want to know my options before i settle down and put more money into my deadbox360.
I looked this error up online and it seems to be the new ‘red rings of death’
I was just wondering has anyone else gotten this error and how much did you pay for repairs outside of warranty (if you have a story where you were still within the 1 yr warrant i’d like to hear it too! =D)
