E73 is a simple one to fix, ive done loads and they are the exactly the cause or the same as the e74 and to fix you need to strip your machine down and re-heat the solder points especially concentrating on the back end of the motherboard near the ANA chip and ethernet chip.

ive been warned not to provide guides on helping you but just to say you can find step by steps on the internet free.

I have one red ring on my xbox360 elite its on the 4rth controller port how do i fix it please tell me


Try the following resolutions in the order in which they are listed:
  1. Turn off your Xbox 360 console, disconnect and reconnect all cables, and then again turn on your console. If this step doesn't resolve the problem, try step 2.
  2. Turn off the console, and then disconnect any connected accessories, such as controllers, Xbox 360 Memory Units, and the Xbox 360 Hard Disk. With these accessories removed, restart the console to see whether the problem persists and to pinpoint whether the problem involves the console or an accessory. If this step doesn't resolve the problem, try step 3.
  3. If you continue to experience the problem, contact Xbox Customer Service.

    If the Xbox Customer Service agent cannot help you resolve the problem, you may have to return your Xbox 360 console to Microsoft for repair. For more information about how to contact Xbox Customer Support or to request repair of your Xbox 360 console, please visit the Xbox Support (http://www.xbox.com/support/) Web site.

This is usually the similar sort of problem to what causes the 3rrod (3 red rings of death) and can be fixed by trying the above or by re-heating the mainboard with a heat gun and this in turn will reseat the solder point. we also fix this error www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

Xbox 360 elite 1 red light


When you get any of these messages appearing on your screen with one red light flashing on the ROL of your Xbox 360 console that's an indicator of a hardware problem with the console connection to one of the parts connected to it as the hard drive or cables.
So, first disconnect all power and AV cables from the back of your Xbox 360 console and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket, wait for a minute then reconnect them all back and try to turn on your Xbox 360 console once more.
If that doesn't work, it seems then to be a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so turn off the console again and remove the hard drive then turn on your Xbox 360 console without the hard drive, supposed then to work fine, it might be an intermittent issue and when you reconnect the hard drive your Xbox 360 will work fine all after, or it will just work fine without the hard drive so it will be then definitely a fault with your Xbox 360 hard drive so call Xbox 360 customer support to exchange the hard drive for you.
The number for Microsoft is usually listed on the back of any game manual.

I hope I was able to fixya problem, and Happy Gaming!
