The E73 error is caused by the scaler chip at the back of the console taking too much heat. To fix it you need to stop the heat build up.

You can do this yourself using a good guide that will show you how to fix it with household items or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

Got the Xbox 360 E73 error? Want to get it fixed? Fact is that this problem may be tough to fix, and that's why many people will tell you to send your console over to Microsoft and pay $150. But is it really worth your $150? Is there maybe another way to get it fixed? The Xbox 360 E73 error may be tough to fix, but this doesn't mean that you can't repair it by yourself.
3 ways to fix the Xbox 360 E73 error
1. Restart your console.
2. Unplug all AV cables, and also unplug the power cord from the wall socket. Once that's done, plug them all back in correctly, and put your console back on.

Xbox 360 E73 error. What do I do?


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.

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.
