Xbox-360 elite lower right hand red flashing led light code error E73

If you get the Xbox 360 1 red light message, it means that the problem is either with the DVD drive, or with the hard drive.

Fortunately, the Xbox 360 1 red light message is not something that you should worry about. In order to identify which of the two drives the Xbox 360 1 red light messages is referring to, just look the code number that the screen displays. DVD drive errors are identified with the codes E64, E65 and E66, whereas hard drive errors are identified with codes E67, E69 and E79.

Once you identify which error the Xbox 360 1 red light message is pointing to, fixing it is really easy. The guide available at will tell you what to do in each case, as well as what to do in case you get any of the other Xbox 360 lights messages. Check it out.

Xbox 360 e73 error?was showing e74 but now e73. One red light have gone through steps with a repair kit for red light but now showing e73 what is it

Often this error is indicative of a problem with your ethernet port. It's been reported that shutting-down, unplugging console, removing the hard drive, power console on, then off again, re-attaching hard drive, and powering-on again will remedy the problem. This doesn't always fix the problem. Alot of times the 360 has to be repaired by Microsoft to be rid of this particular problem. That will cost you $150 and 6-8 weeks of down-time. For $50 dollars more you can buy a new arcade system and swap your hard drive into the new one.

My xbox 360 has one red light with a message of E73

E73 is an error code meaning that the system is encountering a hardware failure. This might be due to a failing memory storage device attached to it. You can try to turn off your console and remove the hard drive and start it on without the HDD attached. If it works, you can try to format your HDD and try it again. If still does not work even the HDD was removed, then it is an internal hardware failure and you have to contact support for it to be fixed..

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.

What is this error code and how do we fix it E73?

This is an error code for an Ethernet issue. There are people who quick fix the problem on their own, but it will void your warranty, so I wouldn't recommend it. I'd contact Microsoft support and get it fixed through them. You may have the option of getting another warranty after you get it fixed.

Blue screen with error message on startup

Most likely problem is a physical problem with the hard drive, but could be plenty of other things. Best bet is to back up your information (if possible) and do a fresh windows install, if you continue to get the message after a clean windows install, your hard drive is not stable, and has a problem.
