e74 error code on xbox...

I cant find on the stupid f*cking Xbox site if Microsoft is warrantying this like they did RROD, anyone know? BTW, they refuse to let you talk to anyone on the phone, just recorded BS. I requested a repair online and they are sending me a shipping label, but I need to know if they are charging me $100 for repairs. BTW, my 1yr warranty ran out in May, how convenient huh?

E74: I/O Hardware Error - HSIO related, could be crc error, or many things: There is high chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip near the AV cable connection) it can also be caused by a faulty AV cable so check that first. Microsoft covers this error under their 3-year warranty, this is availble to anyone who hasn't modified their console. contact MS to get a free replacement console before attempting to fix this yourself. Failing that this error In some cases it is a problem with the GPU and may be repairable by doing the x-clamp replacement (see error 0102)

Thanks G. I'm not too brilliant with electronics, so I'm afraid to open it up and then not being able to have MS fix it.

Heres a update if anyone is interested. I got on Xbox's support site and had them send me a UPS shipping label. I went to the UPS store and paid them $4 to box it and send it out. Two weeks later, the Xbox was sent back to my house, no charge and with a new warranty. Big thumbs up to Microsoft.
