Best 360 repair sites/forums

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I bought a couple 360's on ebay that are messed up and I'm going to try and fix them.

One is a premium from one of those places that says they don't know what is wrong with it. No accessories.

The other is a full core system that works but sometimes shows error lights. Once I realized I needed all the crap to go with the earlier one i bought i just bought this, it wasn't a bad deal anyway.

So where are the best places to find free 360 info?

Let me know how it goes, I've seen some busted 360's go for cheap on ebay as well and contemplated taking the plunge myself.

The one that was just the console I scored for $43 shipped to me, The working but buggy one was $120 but came with a controller/memory card/power brick which all adds up. I asked the owner of that system if they had ever tried to repair it and she said no. So that one may even be under MS warranty if it ends up getting Rrod. She was the origianl owner according to her, But thats wishful thinking.

Call up M$oft and see what you can do. It's worth a shot. Try registering it.

Well if that is the case this is how u get RROD. Just turn the 360 on wrap it up in a beach towel or shower towel n let the sucker toast for a while then u'll have RROD call them up and they'll send u a new one for free no matter if ur the original owner(recipt or not) or not. i no a guy who "borrowed" a 360 it got RROD he called them n they sent him a premium to replace it.

Yeah the one core system I won is sealed. Got it today, my roommate is play GOW right now. You basically have to keep turning it off and on and then it will boot up, but most the time it has rrod. The other one I just turned on once and it had rrod, will probably take it all apart and do this fix thats attached.

When I call Microsoft for the one thats sealed should I tell them I am not the original owner or just make something up.

They original owner may have registered that console, but if not, you're golden. MS should replace it if its under warranty, no questions asked. $43 is a steal, I payed $65 for mine with RROD & no accessories from ebay. But the user was nice enough to tell me what error code they were receiving... oh well.

Good luck with your fix. I'm gonna do the x-clip fix tonight, so I'll post a "How To" in the Xbox forum.

Yeah I opened up the one I got for 43 and someone already tried the X-clamp fix on it. The screw heads were too big and they were missing the metal washer on the back of the mobo for all the screws. Also there was way too much thermal compound. So I cleaned it all off and changed everything up. Works fine now, played for a few hours.

I called MS and they are going to take the other core unit back on rrod warranty.

I needed a harddrive and they were going for $50 on ebay. So I bought another lot that had the following: xbox with rrod, wireless controller, 20gb hd, component cables, power brick and cord all for $130 shipped. So I made out on that too.
