Three red lights (no error message) - two reasons for the red lights: hardware failure or power supply unit failure.

when the three red lights is showing check the light on the power supply unit. if the light is green you console is experiencing a hardware failure. you need to send the console to MS service center or if you have no MS support in your country look for someone who knows how to repair the console or go to xbox-scene.com and look for information on how to repair the console yourself.

if the light is orange, red or no light at all, there might be a problem with the power supply unit. disconnect and reconnect the power cables from the 360 and reconnect them again. if there is an inter-cooler connected at the back of the console, remove the inter-cooler and turn on the console without the inter-cooler. try also a different wall socket and if the light on the power supply is still orange, red, or no light when you turn on the console you need to replace the power supply unit.

SOURCE: xbox 360 doesnt work because of one red light and message of E73 that they dont know how to fix

E73: 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.  

You can try to find some parts online, but it looks like your Ethernet port is bad...

When did you buy your 360??there is a warranty on it for three years that microsoft will cover the shipping and repairs.

If not there are some easy fixes out there but do not open it until you know there is no warranty. Let me know in the comments and I will get you the stuff to fix the red lights.

Three red light`s on xbox 360 console how can i fix the problem


How to Fix Xbox 360 3 Red Lights
Appearance of the three blinking red lights on your Xbox 360 game console is a familiar problem and in this article I will try to offer some solutions to rectify this nagging problem.
The 3 blinking red lights point to an internal error and might be ascribed to common breakdown of hardware.
Try out this simple fix if you like:
Step one will involve removal of memory units and hard drive.
At step 2, under the system blade run the INITIAL SETUP.
At step three involves declining the insertion of memory unit or HDD prompt offer with a negative reply when the prompt creates the automatic offer.
Finally you need to sync the controller & pop in a game.
Due to the widespread occurrence of the three red light fault, Microsoft is offering a new 3 year free warranty.

3 red lights on my xbox 360 please help


Hey cozierterry,

While this may be an indicator that something is wrong with your Xbox 360, there are a couple of things that you may want to consider before seeking additional assistance.

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the light on your Xbox 360's power supply should still light up green even when the console has encountered a three red light problem. If the light on the power supply isn't green, you will want to take different actions based on what color is displayed. If this light is red, the AC adaptor may either be defective or has recently overheated. If the light is orange, you may need to double-check all cable connections are secure. If the light on the AC adaptor isn't lit, the AC adaptor may need to be replaced.

Alternatively, you may want to try turning the Xbox 360 off, then pressing the power button again roughly 10-15 seconds later. If the unit powers on normally and the three red lights disappear, the system may simply have needed to be reset.

Should the problem persist however, you may need to speak directly with Microsoft for further assistance, as three red lights often indicate a hardware failure that requires repairs. You can reach Microsoft's toll-free Xbox support hotline at 800-4MY-XBOX (800-469-9269), or you can always request service through the Xbox website:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
