Sometimes the easiest way is the fastest way. The signal reset button (the little one to the left of the power button) is also the unofficial reset button for the Xbox 360. With the Xbox turn off, press this button and keep pressing it while you press the power button. Do not release the reset button until you see the system booting up normally. Of course, if there is a permanent or a more serious damage to the system, it won’t work or the error will be recurrent until it is solved. Resetting just clears the error from memory.

Error code 73 is a general hardware error - ethernet port.
Here is a link to a web site that I have found fairly informative. http://www.xbox360-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=2099

On may 2, 2009 i turned my xbox on to see the one red ring. I searched and searched until i just decided to do the towel trick. And it worked. NO MORE RED LIGHT!!! I kept 3 towels wrapped around for twenty minutes and then let it cool down. After 20 minutes i was back to playing GTA 4

Dont send your xbox in just jam the fans in the back with tooth picks pr something that will fit and let the xbox over heat then unplug the xbox from the back then plug back in and wait a minute then turn on again. if it stays red after you do this then just re do it. your xbox would be fix for a little bit and when it goes red again do it again

It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.
If that doesn't work try this link http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/927749-xbox-360/67807343
