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.

Xbox 360. problem code E73 . playing call of duty 5 when the screen went greeen and lines went down the sreen like an atari or something. a red cirle appeared around the power button, when i turned my xbox...

the problem with e73 is that its the system telling you there is a problem with the ethernet cable reciver but there may or may not be. 90% of the ,consoles i come across have not been a problem with the ethernet reciver at all some of the more popular problem flashing this code is a result of system failure in the mother boards ability to read properly the connection between the cpu and gpu units under the heat sinks. there are a few fixes avalible for this projected e73 problem. i strongly caution you not to preform work unless you are familiar with the console and its internal parts. ------- I cannot guarantee that this will work for everyone to fix it.

Remove the A/V cord from the back of the XBox 360. Stick two sticks into the fans to prevent them from spinning. This will cause the system to overheat within five minutes. You will know its done when the first and third quadrants light up red on the system (indicating the system has overheated). Unplug the system, plug it back in and turn it on to see if it was successful. (Note: While this method does not void your warranty, if your XBox is still under warranty I suggest sending to Microsoft to fix.)

E73 error code comes up 1 red light

From a little research I have read from other posts that the e73 error is a hardware issue. Problem may be caused by a problem with the ethernet port or supporting control devices. If you system is still under warranty, I would have xbox fix it first. If you open it up and break the seals then your warranty will be compromised.

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.

I have the error E73

Even though the error code indicates it being an Ethernet problem 99% of the time It is the solder under the GPU causing the motherboard to short out and give an error. I would suggest the 3 red light fix. We can do this for you if intersted email us for estimate.
