E73: General Hardware Error: Ethernet port... this error is caused by a problem with the Ethernet port.
Try restarting without the Ethernet cable plugged in.
Also: If you have an addon intercooler, you might try detaching this and trying again.

Red light come on xbox360 what is the problem


If you get red light around your xbox power button the you have red ring of death. This is when your Xbox has overheated. While im not all that famlier with Xbox I have read there is a 6 cent fix (cause you use 6 pennies) You would have to read up because as I sid before not great with Xbox. I'm sure microsoft would do it to but hey if you good with tools 6 cents sounds pretty cheap.
Im sorry for your loss
Good Luck and Happy Gaming-Koscoe

Red flashing light and having a code E73


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

E 74 Error


The E74 Error is a problem with your graphics chip. It's very much like the Red Ring of Death and you need a repair. MS warranties units for 3 years from the E74 and if you are still in this warranty I suggest going to www.xbox.com/support and requesting a free repair from them. If you aren't in warranty any longer I would suggest seeking a skilled professional to assist you.

One red ringon xbox360


Hi, there are about 17 error codes that go along with one red light on your 360. It ranges from a bad hard drive to a bad DVD flash chip. The most common problem is the e-74 error code which is a result of a GPU malfunction. This can be repaired by doing an x-clamp replacement on the 360. If your 360 is still under warranty, then I would suggest that you send it back to Microsoft and they will repair it for free. If it isn't then I would recommend that you take it into a repair shop to have it fixed. The benefit to taking it into a shop instead of doing it yourself is the shop will give you some sort of warranty in case it happens again.

My xbox 360 has error 74


The E74 malfunction is a problem believed to be associated with the system's video output cables and/or hardware scaler chip. The problem involves unusual screen patterns, the appearance of an on-screen error message, and finally a flashing red light in the lower right quadrant of the power ring. When a system suffers from the failure the on-screen message reads "E74 System Error. Contact Xbox Customer Support."

You could send it in to Microsoft of you can follow the steps as outlined in this You Tube video.

3 red lights on my xbox 360 please help


Hey cozierterry,

While this may be an indicator that something is wrong with your Xbox 360, there are a couple of things that you may want to consider before seeking additional assistance.

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the light on your Xbox 360's power supply should still light up green even when the console has encountered a three red light problem. If the light on the power supply isn't green, you will want to take different actions based on what color is displayed. If this light is red, the AC adaptor may either be defective or has recently overheated. If the light is orange, you may need to double-check all cable connections are secure. If the light on the AC adaptor isn't lit, the AC adaptor may need to be replaced.

Alternatively, you may want to try turning the Xbox 360 off, then pressing the power button again roughly 10-15 seconds later. If the unit powers on normally and the three red lights disappear, the system may simply have needed to be reset.

Should the problem persist however, you may need to speak directly with Microsoft for further assistance, as three red lights often indicate a hardware failure that requires repairs. You can reach Microsoft's toll-free Xbox support hotline at 800-4MY-XBOX (800-469-9269), or you can always request service through the Xbox website:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Xbox problems


There may be serveral problems with it,could be the power supply,ana chip or the cpu and gpu under the heat sinks in the xbox.I wrapped mine with a couple of towels and left it running for about 15 mins. then cooled it down another 15 mins.There is a way to fix it  yourself,go to youtube and watch "fix 1 red light".If your xbox is under warranty send it in,you might get a brand new one.Hope this helped.
