E73 error dont have anything to do with your harddrive. This is what E73 is E73: General Hardware Error: Ethernet port... this error is caused by a problem with the Ethernet port.
But I would almost guarantee it is the solder under the GPU which is the common problem for all overheated xbox360 systems. Wecan fix it for you if your interested please contact us for free estimate. xbox360fixer@verizon.net

Xbox 360 won't turn on!! I was playing my xbox for all of 30 minutes, turned it off, went to turn it back on again an hour later, and nothing!! No red ring of death, no pop or spark, just nothing....


try this
I know its a little annoying but its useful trust me. The orange light usually means a problem with the power supply. This means WORST CARE SCENARIO you have to replace the power brick but you 99% dont have to get a new xbox.

Xbox 360 plays for 5 mintues and then shuts off


This i have seen before and it tells me the machines is displaying the signs of lead free solder failure (85%sure). you could strip the machine down and replacing the x-clamps at the same time do the heatgun fix if you dont have access to an IR oven.
To me it will just get worse and will definately need the x-clamps replacing AND the solder re-seating.


hope that helps in some way

Xbox E 73 error


Hi Brett,

FYI. the 3yr extended warranty only applies for the 3RED LIGHTS and E74 issues only..if the console is already in the service center,you dont have to worry anymore,microsoft technicians will surely work hard to get it fixed. just wait 2-3weeks for the whole repair process,and you& your son will enjoy playing xbox in no time. :-)

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.

My 360 has 2 red lights i can play for 5mins then the fan turns off


I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. USUALLY THE RED LIGHT IS WHAT IS CALLED THE KISS OF DEATH.

IF YOU HAVE WARRANTY ON THIS XBOX YOU MAY HAVE TO USE IT TO GET A NEW ONE.

IF YOU DON T HAVE A WARRANTY. THERES A 800 NUMBER SUPPORT THAT LOCATED ON THE BACK OF THE XBOX OR YOU MAY GOOGLE FOR THE NUMBER.

CALL THE NUMBER THEY WILL TRY TO TROUBLESHOOT THE PROBLEM. ONCE VERIFIED THAT THE MACHINE IS BAD THEY WILL REPLACE IT BY A NEW ONE.
