Usually with one red light an error code or "E code" will be displayed on the TV screen. The most common is E74 a GPU/HANA chip related ( graphics problem). These errors are a little tougher to fix then 3 Red Rings. First I'd check to see if you are still covered under the warranty here.
If you are not covered by warranty and don't feel like giving MS more of your money we can repair your Xbox for you. Our website is here.
If you'd like to repair it yourself check out this site.
Keep in mind you will need to reball the solder joints to fix one red light in most cases... X-clamp replacement will not suffice. Let me know if you have any more questions.

SOURCE: e73 error one red ring of death bottom right

There are links that show you how to repair this issue yourself (but they are not very clear and every thing is very fragile inside the XBOX 360) or you can contact me via email at mycharminglife@gmail.com and we can discuss the issue further as I recently repaired my XBOX 360 with the same issues and it works better than when was brand new. There are additional measures that must be taken besides the x-clamp replacement which are certain heat syncs that prevent it fron sensing false over heating issues.

Flashing red light on the bottom right of the ring and an error code 73 picture on the screen


Hi,Turn on unit until the red light flashes and the error code(E 73) shows up on the screen. Next insert toothpicks in the back of the console(while unit is running) into the cooling fans, this is to suppose to overheat the console and start two red lights flashing. Turn off console when this happens(unplug all cords from console) and turn the system back on.
This solution will fix your problem for sure. Thank you!

1 redlight flashes clearly red at bottom right hand side of the power ring,and 2 other dim red lights are flashing,only the 1 in the bottom right is bright though.it happened 2weeks ago but i tryed it...


Do you get an error message on your tv screen? 1 flashing red light means there is a hardware failure such as your DVD drive hard drive, dashboard error ect. Not much can be done about this issue besides having microsoft fix it.
