    for this fix you need to strip the console and take the case off, then unplug the fan and turn the 360 on, leave it for a while till it gets hot then turn off, plug fan back in and let it cool then try again. if it still does not repair it then you might have to strip the mainboard out and go over it with a heatgun. even though this error is reported to be something to do with the ethernet port i find that doing the heatgum trick has fixed the majority.

Do not ever use a heatgun on your system it will damage the mainboard and if it melts the solder under the GPU you will need to send it out to get the chips removed and reflowed which is probably more then getting a new one.

Hello my problem is in xbox 360 elite e 73 one light red


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.

Xbox 360 E73 error. What do I do?


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.

Xbox 360 error 73


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.

You probably have a general protection error. Call microsoft's tech center. They can tell you what the code means and if you need to send in the console for repairs. Since they extended the warranty on the system, most repairs should be free.
