Hi there! It sounds like you are experiencing one of the dreaded RLOD (red light of death) issues with your x-box.
E73 error code: I/O Hardware Error - Couldn't calibrate HSIO Bus from edram: this error is likely caused by a problem with the Ethernet port or supporting control devices

Your best bet would be to send your xbox into Microsoft for repair (if it is still under warranty) or take it into a local repair shop to have it fixed.
Your other option is to attempt to fix it yourself (you would need to be proficient with soldering.) Please remember that you would be doing this at your own risk and would void your warranty if you attempt it, and could potentially completely ruin your xbox if you make a mistake. If you still want to try some known "fixes" for this issue, you can find the tutorials here: http://xbox-experts.com/errorcode/E73/1021/
Hope this helps!

Got the Xbox 360 E73 error? Want to get it fixed? Fact is that this problem may be tough to fix, and that's why many people will tell you to send your console over to Microsoft and pay $150. But is it really worth your $150? Is there maybe another way to get it fixed? The Xbox 360 E73 error may be tough to fix, but this doesn't mean that you can't repair it by yourself.
3 ways to fix the Xbox 360 E73 error
1. Restart your console.
2. Unplug all AV cables, and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket. Once that's done, plug them all back in correctly, and put your console back on.
3. Take out the hard drive, and put your console on. If the troubleshooting error has been gone, put your console off, and get the hard drive in again. Than put your console back on.

E73 xbox


When turning on the Xbox 360, a red light would be flashing at the fouth section of the Ring of Light. You should then recieve a ghost screen indicating an error E 73.
You recieve a screen error E 73 and section 4 of the RoL flashing red. This type of error was caused by a General Hardware Error relating to the Ethernet Port not functioning correctly or became faulty and unable to operate even with or without an Ethernet Cable connected to this port. The secondary code would be identified as 1021 for faulty ethernet port. I believe that there is no fix at the moment. If you encounter this error, I would suggest call 1-800-4MY-XBOX or visit www.xbox.com/support
The specific type of hardware error can be determined by these hidden codes:
0001, 0002, 0003, 0010, 0011, 0012, 0013, 0020, 0021,0022, 0023, 0030, 0031, 0032, 0033, 0100, 0101, 0102, 0103, 0110, 0200, 0203, 1000,1001, 1002, 1003, 1010, 1011, 1012, 1013, 1020, 1021, 1022, 1023, 1030, 1031,1032, 1033, 1100, 1444 and up

  • Note: There is known to be a temporary fix for this problem but is not recommended if the device still has available warranty on it. Doing so will avoid it's warranty, thus for you will pay $100 if sent for repair.
The Sticks Method:
  • Requirements: Xbox 360 (Power Cable and Composite/Component/HDMI Cable), two sticks (Like toothpicks, swabs)
1.) Turn off your Xbox 360 and unplug everthing.
2.) Get two sticks (Something like toothpicks or something that could fit in the back of the Xbox 360.
3.) Insert each stick to jam the two fans at the back of the Xbox 360 to prevent it from spinning.
4.) Plug back cables (Power and Cable connecting to TV; the RRoD will not appear unless the cable to the TV is connected).
5.) When RRoD appears (One Red Light), wait for about 10 to 15 minutes or maybe less for the Xbox 360 to overheat.
6.) At this point, you should get two red lights (Resembles Overheating Error) so remove the two sticks so that the fans will spin in an increased speed. After a few seconds, the Xbox 360 will turn off to cool down (RRoD will still appear).
7.) Unplug only the cable connected to the TV. You can unplug the power cord if you want to. Then let it cool for about 30 minutes or so (Feel the Xbox 360 if it's cool or still warm)
8.) Replug all wires and turn your Xbox 360 on.
The Xbox 360 should now be able to boot to your Xbox Dashboard. I don't know how this fix works but it's only temporary. Note that doing this continually would cause it to now work even if you try to redo this fix again and again. Doing so would make other hardware components to fail permanently such as the GPU for example.

If this first temporary fix did not work, do the second method: The Towel Trick. You can find the tutorials in Youtube. Again, this is not recommended if you have warranty left and never do this continually. Your Xbox 360 would completely and permanently fail after that. if it doesnt help after all this....I suggest sending it to Microsoft for repairs

Cannot get a connection from wireless internet to game-


E71: possibly a dashboard update error, Check below in the "Console Reset Codes" for instructions. If that does not work there is no other solution and the console must be sent back to MS for repair.
:
The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.

One light flashing - 1
Two Lights flashing - 2
Three lights flashing - 3

How do isolve error 73 code 1021?


E73: General Hardware Error: Ethernet port... this error is caused by a problem with the Ethernet port
1021 (not yet known)
info from http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/Xbox-360-error-codes.htm
I have read on some forums that this is caused when the motherboard is not seated correctly so the ports are not exactly where they should be. Some have opened up the console and resat the motherbaord.

However, I do not recommend this as your warranty will automatically be void if you attempt to repair it yourself. If you have still got any warranty left on your console you need to contact xbox support about getting your console repaired, they will not charge you. http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/support/ go here for contact details.

I hope this helps
