To fix the error is rather an easy task. The reason for the error may be the AV cable. First of all, unplug the AV cable and blow out the gathered dust that built up in the connections. Now hook it back and turn the console on. Now see whether it worked or not. If the error still persists, then replace the AV cable with another new one. Start the console with the replaced AV cable and see the difference. If your problem is solved, then you are lucky not to move to the further repair. However, if the problem of e74 does not go away, then you have to take the further steps of repair.
The first repair is Microsoft’s repair. Yes, if your console is within warranty period, then send your console to Microsoft, for they will repair the console for your sake free of cost. What you need is to keep patience for a month until the console is sent back repaired.

Obviously, if your warranty is expired and you are not interested to be patient for a month without gaming, then self repair is the best option for you to fix the e74 error. The need is to refer a DIY (Do It Yourself) guide, with which you can fix the error by your own.
