Xbox 360 Warranty Extended…

If the Red Ring of Death (or RROD) was bad enough, reports flew around about an increase in the number of E74 errors. The E74 error is related to video problems, which can be caused by either a faulty AV connector or the more often loosened ANA/HANA scaling chip. When the E74 error occurs, the console will display ‘E74’ on the screen and can be associated with the 3 flashing red lights error on the Xbox console.

In wake of this, Microsoft have extended the Xbox 360 warranty, originally designated general hardware failure, to cover the E74 error and allow repair of the console when this error occurs. Microsoft will also refund customers for an out of warranty repair as it now classed as a general hardware failure.
