    You have to reflow the soldering, at this point. Otherwise, it won't start working again [​IMG]

    Since you probably don't have an expensive Hot Air soldering station or a BGA reflowing oven, just use an heat gun, like this:

    You can find many tutorials on doing this on the internets googling "heatgun 360 fix" [​IMG]

    My xbox had the e74 that couldn't be fixed with the x-clamp. Went to Ace Hardware, bought a $25 heat gun and reflowed my xbox 360.

    Best $25 every spent

    you fixed e74 ? ... i didn't think that was actually possible.

    I had the same issue as the op, only diff is after my x-clamp fix, like literally 2 weeks later the damn thing died of e74... end of story

    Reflowing actually fixes E74... for a bit of time. It'll die again, eventually.

    Thanks for confirming that for me, since i recently got rid of of a few e74 360's, thought they were a complete loss, guess they actually were anyway.
