Xbox-360 elite lower right hand red flashing led light code error E73


If you get the Xbox 360 1 red light message, it means that the problem is either with the DVD drive, or with the hard drive.

Fortunately, the Xbox 360 1 red light message is not something that you should worry about. In order to identify which of the two drives the Xbox 360 1 red light messages is referring to, just look the code number that the screen displays. DVD drive errors are identified with the codes E64, E65 and E66, whereas hard drive errors are identified with codes E67, E69 and E79.

Once you identify which error the Xbox 360 1 red light message is pointing to, fixing it is really easy. The guide available at Fix-xbox360.info will tell you what to do in each case, as well as what to do in case you get any of the other Xbox 360 lights messages. Check it out.

When i turn on my xbox 360 it turns to a black screen and says i have error E73 and when i went to Xbox.com it didnt say anything about it


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.

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.
