Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
When we turn it on red flashing lights appear can u help.
system error is the problem
Depends on how many red lights are flashing...
if you have 3 flashing red lights your machine has a hardware failure which means unfortuanatly your beloved is dead. in which case take it back to the shop and demand a new one. this is a very common problem.
if its only one red light the problem is your av/component cables are not connected correctly....good luck

hi, it sounds like a case for microsoft. but a word of advice. you can upgrade your warranty first if it has run then phone them up a week or two later to say your system has developed a fault but i didnt tell you this. ha

this might be a hardware failure. try turning it off then back, or try keeping a fan on it when you play on and if that doesn't work call 1800myxbox there you'll find step by step instructions to send it down to texas and get it fixed. if that happens three times you will recieve a brand new xbox 360 that has that problem fixed. also keep in mind to keep your hard drive before you send it to be fixed. i really hope this helps with your problem

e73 is an input/output error. Hopefully you are still under warranty. Contact Microsoft at Toll free: (800) 4MY-XBOX or (800) 469-9269. If you are outside of your warranty period, I believe they will still repair it for $99
