Hi,

his error refers to a problem with your ethernet port. From what I can find, this is a hardware issue, BUT, check all cables leading back to your router/internet connection. Hope this helps you out. This does seemm to be a fairly common issue.Brad
The cost to fix this is about $99, but if you have the 3 rings of death it may be fixed for free at MS.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

It doesnt start and all it says is go to xbox.com/support it says E73


Hi there! It sounds like you are experiencing one of the dreaded RLOD (red light of death) issues with your x-box.
E73 error code: I/O Hardware Error - Couldn't calibrate HSIO Bus from edram: this error is likely caused by a problem with the Ethernet port or supporting control devices

Your best bet would be to send your xbox into Microsoft for repair (if it is still under warranty) or take it into a local repair shop to have it fixed.
Your other option is to attempt to fix it yourself (you would need to be proficient with soldering.) Please remember that you would be doing this at your own risk and would void your warranty if you attempt it, and could potentially completely ruin your xbox if you make a mistake. If you still want to try some known "fixes" for this issue, you can find the tutorials here: http://xbox-experts.com/errorcode/E73/1021/
Hope this helps!

My xbox 360 has one red light with a message of E73


E73 is an error code meaning that the system is encountering a hardware failure. This might be due to a failing memory storage device attached to it. You can try to turn off your console and remove the hard drive and start it on without the HDD attached. If it works, you can try to format your HDD and try it again. If still does not work even the HDD was removed, then it is an internal hardware failure and you have to contact support for it to be fixed..

Got the Xbox 360 E73 error? Want to get it fixed? Fact is that this problem may be tough to fix, and that's why many people will tell you to send your console over to Microsoft and pay $150.

One red light on elite


Extended MS does not cover E73, so they won't fix for free :-(

The E73 error though is the NIC error (network), so usually shows a problem with the internet connection port, but can also be a problem with the motherboard. I have fixed the E73 issue in x360 units before, but that tends to be an error that's a real pain to sort.

Even once fixed, it usually comes back, it's really unlike any other E code error in that respect. Your cheapest option is just to get an HDMI white base unit on eBay (with no cables or anything) then just swap the white case for your black one, then sell yours on for spare parts.

Hope this helps.

How to fix e73 error code for xbox 360


i personally have fixed most e73 errors by replacing the xclamps, re heating all the solder on the mainboard and replacing the heatsink paste with new.

e73 errors when searched for on the net say its something to do with the ethernet port BUT ive found it to be the lead free solder on the mainboard around the ethernet port which is at fault not the port itself.

you need to search the net for 3rrod fix and you need to do this yourself or take it to a repair center if your unsure how to do it.

out of 50 e73 errors ive fixed around 49 doing what i mentioned above.

run a search for 3rrod guides on the net or youtube.

if you get stuck email me
