PostSubject: 360 needs help!   Sun Jul 26, 2009 9:25 am

Hey i posted this on the Llama forums and someone referred me to this site

"I bought a 360 on the cheap from a guy who bought it off eBay. He said it was broken, and me, being overconfident said that i was sure i could fix it. First thing i checked was xbox support. They told me to send it in, and that it was a free repair. At this point I had only one red light and a e74 error message. When they send it back they say it could not be repaired because the warranty had been breached or something. SOOOO being overconfident i thought i could fix it. I took it apart and was surprised to find the three red light repair already finished. Than i had the great idea to do it again and replace the heat sink. after trying and failing, I now have the red ring of death. any suggestions? anywhere i could bring it to get fixed?"

Well at this point Im fairly sure the next standard step is a reflow. I'm not sure if anyone on here advertises them but Im fairly sure that world formula does them.

Well you can always heat it up and do a full hybrid Very Happy My method to the madness. I have a good success rate with previously x-clamped consoles too.

EDIT: The secondary was an 0031 because the heatsink was shorting against the GPU. When I removed the heatsink it was an E74.

CLUTCH! Its working. Without any hybrid or x-clamp. WOOP. Now i'll do a hybrid to ensure fixiness, and do a 12v mod. Yes, fixiness.
