Xbox 360 heatgun/bake.

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hello. I bought an xbox from my brother a long time ago cuz I thought I could fix it. I was unsuccessful. Let me explain how it died. One day he was playing cod 4 and the screen suddenly became all fuzzy, distorted, and out of wach in color. It was very strange. He contenued the mission (idiot) until he beat it. Then he turned the xbox off. He tried turning it back on again and got some weird colors. When he tried it again it never gave anything but black. He tried switching out cables, tvs, ect. No go. I personally now think that it could possibly be fixed by heatgunning/baking. What do you guy's think. This was many years ago and on the original xbox 360. The xbox has been stored in our attic ever since.

Follow the guides on this website: http://llamma.com/xbox360/
It is very likely the problem is a red-ring sort of thing, which can mean anything

First if it can display an error code (either on the TV or in the ring of light) get that. Then follow the instructions on the website for more details.

or rather this website: http://xbox-experts.com/repair_modding_ads.php
It's repair guide is newer and worked for me for about a month. Really red-rings are practically impossible to permanently fix once they start happening.

There is no red ring of death and nothing shows up on the tv.

Thanks, but as mentioned before, there is no rrod. I think this is because the gpu needs the reflow. so any help help would still be greatly appreciated.

If there is no red ring then it's probably a different chip that is affected. Probably the video-out chip or a broken pin by the connectors. Usually if there is anything wrong with the RAM, CPU, GPU, HANA, Southbridge, or Ethernet chip it will display some sort of error code.

Try this one. This might be what you have.
Also does your power supply light turn red when you turn it on?
