You probably have a general protection error. Call microsoft's tech center. They can tell you what the code means and if you need to send in the console for repairs. Since they extended the warranty on the system, most repairs should be free.

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!

I have a problem with my x-box 360 and the red eye. It plays no more games and i purchase it in 2007. what can i do?


Do you have 1 or 3 red lights? Microsoft have a 3 year warranty form the original purchase date for the 3red light error and also for the 1 red light error (E74) so if its under 3 full years old and has one of them two errors, and has not been opened then have it sent to Microsoft to be fixed free of charge
You need to have the motherboard fixed, do to this you need to take the xbox360 apart then reflow the board.

Otherwise there is a great 6part video guide on YouTube to view for free. 6 videos from the same fellow, each video is a few mins long, and goes over everything for you.

http://www.youtube.com/user/ohiocitysales#p/u and its free unlike some eBook site.

I actually used the same method to fix over 450 Xbox360 units with no problems at all, barring a few (but i have done nearly 500 so you expect a few problems along the way), you just need a few things though like a heat gun and some thermal paste. sounds hard, but it's very easy once you start!

Hope this helps in some way.

When i turn the x box on it has one red light flashing in the bottom right hand corner and the error 73 message comes on


The problem has aroused due to the overheating of the console. The HANA scaler chip on the motherboard got overheated and this deals with the display on your console and that is why your Xbox is showing the e74 error.

If your Xbox 360 console is under warranty period, then without coming to the decision of self repairing you should send your console to the Microsoft service center and let them work for you. What is important on your part, you have to be patient for 5 weeks without gaming until you get back your favorite console repaired.

Fixing 1 red light (E74) error is not a problem at all, so long as you have quality resources. Read the repair guide by clicking the link below, and you will know how to fix the Xbox 360's 1 red light error. This quality step by step instructions guide found here will help you crack the 1 red light error with ease, which will ensure you can start enjoying gaming rather easily.

Xbox360, i flashing red light bottom right error message


The cause of E-74 with one red light Error might be overheating of your console and for avoiding such error in future you need to put your machine at an open space. Ensure that it is placed near the window or you can also make some external arrangement for cooling of console such as cooling the machine through a pedestal fan.
But as your Xbox already have E74 with one red light Problem which can be solved by only repairing it, no other alternative.
Either you can send your Xbox to Microsoft (Please note that microsoft is no longer providing extended warranty for E74 with one red lightError) and wait for 3-4 weeks. If you don't want to wait for a month, you can also fix E74 with one red light problem with the help of this DIY Video, the guide will explain step by step approach to fix the problem. Choice is yours........

Error e 73


Do not ever use a heatgun on your system it will damage the mainboard and if it melts the solder under the GPU you will need to send it out to get the chips removed and reflowed which is probably more then getting a new one.
