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

    I don't know if you want to try a do a fix yourself, I came across this video on youtube http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=-jF-Sz49kw... which is quite interesting. You could try that if you want or check out some more of the vids on youtube on fixing the error.



    Or you can contact xbox support and seek some advise from them. If they cannot repair it because the warranty has expired they should still be able to guide you on fixing the problem.

    After much searching I was finally able to fix E73 on my Xbox 360.

    I cannot guarantee that this will work for everyone and personally it was a last resort for me but there don't seem to be many options to fix it.

    Remove the A/V cord from the back of the XBox 360. Stick two sticks into the fans to prevent them from spinning. This will cause the system to overheat within five minutes. You will know its done when the first and third quadrants light up red on the system (indicating the system has overheated). Unplug the system, plug it back in and turn it on to see if it was successful.



    this solution was put on by bscholar from fixya, he is actually suggesting the same as the video on youtube that I guided you to, so it might work.



    Let me know how you get on

How do i connect an x box 360 to a HD ready tv please explain simply


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.

Hi,Turn on unit until the red light flashes and the error code(E 73) shows up on the screen.

Turn off console when this happens(unplug all cords from console) and turn the system back on.
This solution will fix your problem for sure. Thank you!

What do i have to do to fix error 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

Wii help


Hello :




1:Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console.
2:

Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the TV. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

Yellow = Video Input
White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
Red = Audio Input Right

3:Once the cables are inserted and the Wii is powered on, you must find the Input Select for your TV to view the game (it is likely not going to be seen on Channel 3 or 4). Typically this is found by pressing the TV/Video button on the Television's front panel or remote control. If you have more than one input channel, keep pressing TV/Video until you see the display from the Wii.
If you do not have a TV/Video button, then the input could be labeled something different. Some other common input selects to look for on the TV or remote are: Input, Input Select, EXT, AUX, or a channel such as 00 or 99.

I hope this will help .

Which wires doi use to connect up my xbox with my


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
