Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Pro System Console
I have a refurbished xbox 360 that gave me the e73 error and I used the fan jamming technique to overheat the xbox "resetting" the error, which worked a few times, but now the e73 error is back. I am very knowledgable with electronics and technical problem solving, whoever has experience with 360 repairs, i would love to get your thorough solutions on this, since there is almost nothing on the web to solve this problem. But suggestions were too
1.use the fan overheating
2. reflow the solder
3. check the southbridge/ethernet chip
Can anyone throw 2 cents in, experts on this.
Thanks in advanced!
Poop on it,that should fix it

The solder that is used on those two main chips on the motherboard are made of cheap led solder.
Doing the reflow method will help but you never really know for how long cause it depends on how long you have the xbox 360 on at one time.
The only other thing to try is to resolder and then maybe putting a cooling unit on the xbox 360 so that way even if your playing for a long time the solder has less of a chance to heat up to much and will keep the solder in place more so that the message won't come back.
