Error message E73 on an Xbox 360 Pro

When turned on Xbox has one flashing red light on the lower left and displays error message E73 -- "system error. Contact Xbox customer support." I went on the support site and went through all the troubleshooting steps (unplug/replug, remove hard drive, remove accessories) and was told to schedule a service appointment--only as y'all probably know they've discontinued all service to 360s, and anyway the warranty expired back in '09, so it seems like I'm out in the cold. Can anybody help?
Thanks!

With no other official ways to fix your console, you're out on your own. Of course, nothing is stopping you from using Google to figure out what terrible hardware design gives you this unfortunate error. :)
