If there is a ring of 3 red lights where the green lights normally are around the power button then you have what gamers call "red ring syndrome" which means that the harddrive for the Xbox has stopped working with the system. The only way you can get this fixed is by contacting Microsoft. They have a warranty repair thing where if this happens you can send it in and they will fix it. Its happened to alot of people's xboxs.

Xbox 360 E73 error. What do I do?


Turn on unit until the red light flashes and the error code(E 73) shows up on the screen. Next insert toothpicks in the back of the console(while unit is running) into the cooling fans, this is to suppose to overheat the console and start two red lights flashing. Turn off console when this happens(unplug all cords from console) and turn the system back on.

Xbox 1 flashing red light and e73 system error


e73 is an input/output error. Hopefully you are still under warranty. Contact Microsoft at Toll free: (800) 4MY-XBOX or (800) 469-9269. If you are outside of your warranty period, I believe they will still repair it for $99

One red light on elite


Extended MS does not cover E73, so they won't fix for free :-(

The E73 error though is the NIC error (network), so usually shows a problem with the internet connection port, but can also be a problem with the motherboard. I have fixed the E73 issue in x360 units before, but that tends to be an error that's a real pain to sort.

Even once fixed, it usually comes back, it's really unlike any other E code error in that respect. Your cheapest option is just to get an HDMI white base unit on eBay (with no cables or anything) then just swap the white case for your black one, then sell yours on for spare parts.

Hope this helps.

E73 Error


Error E73: General Hardware Error: Ethernet port... this error is caused by a problem with the Ethernet port.

This error is also caused by a cold solder joint under the Southbridge or the Ethernet chip.Can also be one of the solder joints that lead to the GPU.

check if you are getting any flashing red lights on your xbox 360 power up button, if you are not getting any flashing lights the probably you may try unplugging any Ethernet cable attached if you had tried connecting to Xbox Live and at that time you face this error, re-connect and check

If you still get this problem and you see a single flashing red light on your console, please send your console for repair to MS support if it is under warranty

My xbox 360 has shown up one red flashing light and E73


HI. This is an Ethernet port issue.

E73: General Hardware Error: Ethernet port... this error is caused by a problem with the Ethernet port. Try using a new Ethernet cord. If the error continues after the new cord is used, contact Microsoft for a repair ticket. the port will need to be replaced. (Internal connection failure)

Possible solder break

E73 error code comes up 1 red light


From a little research I have read from other posts that the e73 error is a hardware issue. Problem may be caused by a problem with the ethernet port or supporting control devices. If you system is still under warranty, I would have xbox fix it first. If you open it up and break the seals then your warranty will be compromised.

Red flashing light on bottom right on 360 elite (e73 error)


X-clamp Fix. Also make sure you have all four heat patches attached to your memory chips. If you don't have any buy some. They sell them on the net.
