    I have an Xbox 360 elite and recently got the E74 error.
    I checked the AV cables and that wasnt the problem so I called Xbox support and they told me that it would cost $99 to send it in and get it repaired. I thought about it and do you all think that it is really worth it???? Couldn't I just get an Arcade system for $200 and sell the Elite, cables, power brick, and extra controller from the arcade system and make the money back? What would you do?

    Its the HANA chip on your 360. My box has gone through the same thing. The way to temp fix it is to put pressure on the chip to keep the connnections solid, but it will still eventually not work anymore. Your gonna have to send it in. Force RROD and get it fixed for free :biggrin:

    Yeah pull a Forrrest easy quick fix and put a bunch of books on top of your opened xbox with your physics book on top because you are so cool like that.

    The question was should I just buy an Arcade system for $200 instead of paying the $99 to fix it. And selling the old system and parts to make the money back

    I would do the 99 to fix it, but you run the risk of getting a lite on drive.

    So after reading I think my best option is what Forrest already said, Force RRoD on my system. What is the easiest way to do this? Also if I already called in for repairs saying I had E74, but decided to cancel the repairs do they keep that on record. Like if I call in tomorrow and say I have RRoD would they be suspicious?

    It's a problem with your ethernet port failing.

    I believe you have to send it in is the only way to fix it.

    I got the same error a couple weeks ago. I have a second xbox though, so that's what I've been using, but I need to get it fixed so I can keep one at my moms and one at my dads.
