    After sniffing around further this error could actually be a close relation to the RROD (3 red lights) and as such would be a soldering issue between components such as the RAM/GPU/CPU. MS don't cover this under the RROD 3 year warranty (which is wrong!) but you might try MS support first and see if you can get it fixed with them (you might get someone who is nice :) )

From what I hear E73 is to do with the Ethernet Chip and although you can fix this yourself, you're gonna have to be good at soldering and getting hold of the relevent 'tronics... I would send it back to MS and pay the 100 buckeroos, or buy a new arcade and switch drives?

Goodluck with it though!

E73 error on xbox


It's most likely overheated.

I would try putting a moist towel on top of the console and letting it sit overnight (while its off).

One red light and a e73 error code??


There are plenty of suggested fixes on the net, but whichever one u go for, make sure its NOT the Towel trick.... this will cause more damage in the long run, altho it does solve the immediate problem. If you are tech savvy, any fault, whether it be one, two or three red lights is quite easy to fix, but involves stripping the xbox down to the motherboard, then removing the to x clamps on the reverse of the board, and lifting off the 2 heatsinks from the processors, thoroughly clean all traces of old thermal compound from the heatsinks and processors and apply new paste. then using one of the many fix kits available on ebay re-attach the heatsinks as per instruction in the kit, plug in all cables but do not connect av cable to tv. turn on xbox until such time that 2 red lights come on. this means the unit is overheating, but it needs to do this to help with the bond of the new paste to the heatsinks. once the lights have come on, just unplug the power cable directly from the back of the xbox...do Not use the button. and allow to cool for approx 30 mins. re-assemble the xbox and hey presto u should be up and running. Any probs email me directly!!!

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

One red light no image


E74: AV cable error... There is a problem with the AV cable, try using a different AV cable. If the cable is known to be working then there is a 90% chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip connected directly to the AV cable) in rare cases it is the GPU.

If you try the first one and it doesnt work im sorry but you will have to contact MS or use a replacment plan if you have one.

What is this error code and how do we fix it E73?


This is an error code for an Ethernet issue. There are people who quick fix the problem on their own, but it will void your warranty, so I wouldn't recommend it. I'd contact Microsoft support and get it fixed through them. You may have the option of getting another warranty after you get it fixed.
