Re: 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.

Hi, Yamaha audio-video receivers are equipped with a variety of connecting jacks for hooking up different types of electronic equipment. Component AV cables are typically used for hooking up the receiver to a cable TV box. Component cables can also be used to connect the Yamaha receiver to an HDTV, although a High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) cable offers a simpler connection if the receiver is equipped with HDMI (all HDTV sets are equipped with the distinctive, six-sided HDMI jack). The connections should take less than five minutes.
Things You'll Need:
* 2 sets component AV cables * HDMI cable
Check the back of the Yamaha receiver to determine if HDMI is available. The six-sided jack contains 19 holes set in three rows. If the receiver is equipped with an HDMI Out port, use an HDMI cable to connect to the TV by inserting the plug straight into the jack with the wider end turned upward.
Insert the red, green and blue plugs on a set of component AV cables into the Video Out jacks on the cable TV box, matching the plug colors to the jacks.
Connect the plugs on the other end to a set of Video In jacks on the back of the Yamaha receiver. Make a note of which jacks are used for the connection. Each set of jacks is labeled on the receiver.
Insert the audio plugs on the component cables into the Audio Out jacks on the cable box, using the white plug for the left channel and the red plug for the right.
Attach the plugs on the other end to the Audio In jacks on the Yamaha receiver.
Use a second set of component AV cables to connect from the AV Out jacks on the Yamaha to the AV In jacks on the HDTV only if an HDMI cable was not used.
Every xbox comes with the HD av cords. However they are not only the standard red, white, and yellow. But they also come with green, blue, and red av cords. These are the HD cords.Your HD tv should have green, blue, and red outlets on the back of the tv. It also has a another red and white outlet under it. So you have to take the HD cords and plug them into the appropriate outlets and then take the red and white cords from the other set of avs and plug them in right under those cords so you will have sound when you turn your xbox on. On my tv the red and white outlet is right under the HD outlet. But your tv may be different. And make sure that the "box" on the cord that reads either TV or HDTV is flicked toward HDTV.
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
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
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
In order to connect your Laptop with Xbox 360, you will have to use the ethernet cable that came along with the Xbox 360,
For connecting the Xbox 360 to TV you would be having a HD AV cable if you have a Xbox 360 Pro model, you would have to insert one part of this cable with 3 colored wires red,blue and green to your composite video port behind your tv with similar color coding, and on the Xbox 360 HD AV cable you have an option to choose either TV or HD video output based on your TV make, also this cable has two more wires red and white meant for audio connectivity which would go to audio port behind TV with same color code ports
If you have got a normal AV cable with Xbox 360 then it would be a a wire with one single yellow colored wire for video and two wires Red and White for audio
Error 7 is a power related problem. This is what u need to do.
Remove back cover.
Plug in power when tv goes into error protection, check power supply and see how many times the led flashes. Right below the flashing green led there is a list 1-13 of error codes and what they mean. Your problem will probably be an error 7or 8 VSET or VSCAN . Which ever error code it gives you VA VSET or VSCAN or whatever it indicates look at the cable connectors to the power supply unplug that connector and the TV will stay on. And there will be your problem.
