So I started up my 360 today, was gonna go online after not having done so for quite some time, check on new demos and such, and I get the one red flashing light and the E 73 error message.  The xbox support site pretty much ignored that error number, and online most are saying its some sort of hardware failure.  Is there anything I can do besides sending it in to get repaired? (because my warranty is void and such.)  If not, I am more than likely just going to buy an arcade unit and stick my harddrive from this one onto that andsell my old one for spare parts.

Thanks.

Stuff your Xbox in a blanket and stick it in a drawer, then leave it running till it melts down.

If you're still under your RROD warranty tell the rep that you have that and send it in.

Sadly im not since I had to fix my RROD myself due to buying it used offa ebay and hence no warranty, so I just forked over the 168 and bought a refurbed one from gamestop.  90 day guarantee and then 1 year warranty, and I asked the guys about whats covered and whats not and it assuaged my fears.  Plus I was able to get a more updated model with HDMI and whatnot, so that was kinda nice haha.

Still sucks.
