E73: I/O Hardware Error - Couldn't calibrate HSIO Bus from edram: this error is likely caused by a problem with the Ethernet port or supporting control devices

try unplugging everything from the console let it sit for a bit and then plug in power and AV cable and see if it will work again also make sure you remove your hard drive before doing this as well with the machine off.

also if you have a usb wifi adaptor plugged in remove it. you may have to plug it into one of the front ones after to try and see if that will work for you as well. Most of the time a usb port on the back will get fried.

if non of this does not work then I would suggest checking the warrenty on the machine and contacting xbox for a RMA

if it is out of warrenty you can take it to any Play N Trade Video game store to have it fixed as well.

hope this helps and good luck.

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 1 flashing red light and e73 system error


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

E73 Error


Error E73: General Hardware Error: Ethernet port... this error is caused by a problem with the Ethernet port.

This error is also caused by a cold solder joint under the Southbridge or the Ethernet chip.Can also be one of the solder joints that lead to the GPU.

check if you are getting any flashing red lights on your xbox 360 power up button, if you are not getting any flashing lights the probably you may try unplugging any Ethernet cable attached if you had tried connecting to Xbox Live and at that time you face this error, re-connect and check

If you still get this problem and you see a single flashing red light on your console, please send your console for repair to MS support if it is under warranty

My xbox360 has a red circle instead of a green circle theirfore will not work what can this be


Three flashing red lights around the Xbox 360 power button (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death"), represent an internal problem that requires service. Warning signs may include freeze-ups, graphical problems in the middle of gameplay, such as checkerboard or pinstripe patterns on the screen, and sound errors, and the console only responds to pressing the power button to turn it off.

This error code is usually caused by failure of one or more hardware components, although it can indicate that the console is not receiving enough power from the power supply, which can either be due to a faulty power supply or if the power supply cable is not fully inserted into the console.


Distinct from the General Hardware Failure is a similar-looking error warning where four red lights appear, in which case the console does not detect an AV cable is plugged in. The four lights can sometimes also be seen when power surges or very brief power outages occur while the console is running, in which the console needs to be unplugged and plugged back in again to reset the error. Two red lights appear when the system is overheated.

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.
