Xbox 360 e73 error?was showing e74 but now e73. One red light have gone through steps with a repair kit for red light but now showing e73 what is it


Often this error is indicative of a problem with your ethernet port. It's been reported that shutting-down, unplugging console, removing the hard drive, power console on, then off again, re-attaching hard drive, and powering-on again will remedy the problem. This doesn't always fix the problem. Alot of times the 360 has to be repaired by Microsoft to be rid of this particular problem. That will cost you $150 and 6-8 weeks of down-time. For $50 dollars more you can buy a new arcade system and swap your hard drive into the new one.

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.

Xbox 1 flashing red light and e73 system error


e73 is an input/output error. Hopefully you are still under warranty. Contact Microsoft at Toll free: (800) 4MY-XBOX or (800) 469-9269. If you are outside of your warranty period, I believe they will still repair it for $99

E73 Error


Error E73: General Hardware Error: Ethernet port... this error is caused by a problem with the Ethernet port.

This error is also caused by a cold solder joint under the Southbridge or the Ethernet chip.Can also be one of the solder joints that lead to the GPU.

check if you are getting any flashing red lights on your xbox 360 power up button, if you are not getting any flashing lights the probably you may try unplugging any Ethernet cable attached if you had tried connecting to Xbox Live and at that time you face this error, re-connect and check

If you still get this problem and you see a single flashing red light on your console, please send your console for repair to MS support if it is under warranty

HI. This is an Ethernet port issue.
