Hey regza,

The "E73" message may indicate that a general hardware error has occurred involving the Xbox 360's ethernet port. Unfortunately, Microsoft does not appear to have released a FAQ regarding every potential Xbox error code so far, so there really isn't a way to determine if this is a simple wiring issue or actual hardware failure without contacting Microsoft directly. As such, I would strongly recommend giving Microsoft a call at 800-4MY-XBOX (800-469-9269) for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

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.
3. Take out the hard drive, and put your console on. If the troubleshooting error has been gone, put your console off, and get the hard drive in again. Than put your console back on.
If these tips didn't fix your Xbox 360 E73 error, you will have to open up your console, and fix the problem from within. You can do this by 2 ways. You either send it over to Microsoft, or you will actually repair the troubleshooter by yourself with a repair guide.
hope this helps

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.
