E74 360 errors now covered with RROD style warranty

Major Nelson has announced that Microsoft will be changing their 3-year warranty service to also cover Xbox 360 that suffer “E74” error messages. The warranty used to only cover Xbox 360’s that were hit with the dreaded Red Ring of Death up until now.

The team is aware that a very small percentage of our Xbox 360 customers have reported receiving an error that displays E74 on their screen and after investigating the issue, we have determined that the E74 error message can indicate the general hardware failure that is associated with three flashing red lights error on the console,” says the Major.

As such, we will be covering any repairs due to the E74 error message under the three year warranty we announced related to the three flashing lights error, as well as reimbursing any customers that have already paid for an E74 related repair.
