Error code: E 73, one red light

Basically, my xbox has had one red light on the bottom right corner for about two months now, and the error code is E 73. My xbox warranty is gone, and I've already had it fixed two times before this, and I don't want to spend $100 knowing that it could easily break for a fourth time. The weird thing is, when I tried turning my console on today, it actually worked! In hopes that the problem miraculously disappeared, I turned it off and on again. It doesn't work. I don't have the money or patience to get it fixed for a third time, and buying a new xbox is completely out of the question. Is there anything I can do that doesn't require me to do a lot of re-wiring (I am not very tech-savy) or pay hundreds of dollars just to fix it? Please help.

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

this is a integrated part that is shared with the motherboard and, this will require the hands of a Microsoft tech. the entire port will need to be clipped and replaced on the mother board, via solder iron. this actual port is not available for purchase. use this number below to contact Microsoft.

Hello!!! This is a serious problem you have here but nothing is imposibble, look, i think the "GURU" who answer you (no offense) really can't help you because he is a worker on this sh%& of microsoft, who aren't be able to do a good console like nintendo but this isn't the case so let's get it. I have the same problem about 2 months ago what i do is void the warranty (which doesn't work for anything) and open my console till i get it with the CPU and the GPU, then i grab my professional heat gun and set it to 500 grades centigrade, and for about 5 min reheating the area who doesn't work (is the area who contains the GPU, the XSB and the ANA) with slow motions and then change his paste (i really recommend you the famous Artic Silver) and if that doesn't work do it all again (i do it about 4 times till i reapir the console) i hope this work for you like it do for me.

P.S. don't do the things that shows in youtube it's a really waste of time!!!

Flashing red light on the bottom right of the ring and an error code 73 picture on the screen


Hi,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.
This solution will fix your problem for sure. Thank you!

Error 73 one red light bottom right hand corner


E73 is easy to fix. What you'll have to do is do the "overheating reflow solder trick" Which is basiclly heating your 360 up to be super hot, so the solder joints can flow back together. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67sbmlJ2_ek you can do it this way but... there is a better way if you google it.

When i turn the x box on it has one red light flashing in the bottom right hand corner and the error 73 message comes on


The problem has aroused due to the overheating of the console. The HANA scaler chip on the motherboard got overheated and this deals with the display on your console and that is why your Xbox is showing the e74 error.

If your Xbox 360 console is under warranty period, then without coming to the decision of self repairing you should send your console to the Microsoft service center and let them work for you. What is important on your part, you have to be patient for 5 weeks without gaming until you get back your favorite console repaired.
