    It's a general hardware failure.

    Do you have any intercooler units or wireless adapters hooked into it? If so, unhook them and try again.

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.


Thank you

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.

XBOX 360 Error Codes


There are several error codes you can get with an XBOX 360, the first step to resolving any problem is finding the root cause. The fault codes are primarily shows on the "ring" on the front of your console (this is the ring split into 4 segments that shows when controllers are connected and what player position they are).

  • 1 SEGMENT FLASHING RED - Thisindicates a displayable error code, the specific error code will bebeing displayed on the TV you have it connected too.
  • 2 SEGMENTS FLASHING RED - The console has overheated.
  • 3 SEGMENTS FLASHING RED - This is the somewhat infamous RROD (Red Ring Of Death).
  • 4 SEGMENTS FLASHING RED - AV cable not detected.

If you have 1 segment flashing red indicating a displayable specific error code then you can identify the fault from the list below.

  • E45 - Update Error.
  • E64, E65, E66 - DVD Drive Error.
  • E67, E68, E69, E79 -Hard Drive Error.
  • E71 - Update Error.
  • E72 - Unknown.
  • E73 - General Hardware Error.
  • E74 -AV cable error.
  • E76 - Unknown.
This is a basic overview of all the fault codes for the XBOX 360, for more in depth information on the faults and how to repair them please see my other tips!

Thanks!

My xbox 360 say error E73, how much?


I charge 80.00 to re-flow the G.P.U C.P.U
and reclamp the I.C. a way that will not warp the P.C-
Board . That seem to be a fair price for that type of
repair .

My system says E 73 how can i fix this problem


The E73 is a generic hardware error, not a specific problem like the three red rings (RRoD) are.

You can attempt the same fixes as the RRoD, such as taking the unit apart and resoldering connectors and the like.

This website will point you in the right direction. I do suggest that you read up thoroughly on this site, as it has great information, but I strongly disagree with the conclusion that it is related to the ethernet port. I wouldn't go poking around there.

The solutions should be similar, however.

One flashing red light.


usually with 1 red light errors, there will also be an error that shows on the screen like e73, e74, e75, etc. You will need to first get your secondary error code.

then enter either the e-code from the screen or the secondary error code into the repair guide

E73: General Hardware Error: Ethernet port... this error is caused by a problem with the Ethernet
port
It is actually the solder under the GPU which is giving the error code.
Is it covered under warranty from Microsoft? If not we can fix this for you.We are listed on this site for repair service.

I have a red light on x box and its coming up with error e73


If there is a ring of 3 red lights where the green lights normally are around the power button then you have what gamers call "red ring syndrome" which means that the harddrive for the Xbox has stopped working with the system. The only way you can get this fixed is by contacting Microsoft. They have a warranty repair thing where if this happens you can send it in and they will fix it. Its happened to alot of people's xboxs.
