baking a red ring of death xbox

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
just wondering if anyone has tried this. my roommate on several occasions fixed a GPU by baking it and i was hoping to see similar results for xboxs...now this is an older xbox thats not mine so im not really worried about the results but i was hoping for a 50/50 chance for it to work. let me know.

Well I would say the chances are 33 1/3 cause 1) It will just melt 2) It won't work although you will bake it 3) It will eventually start working

It should work, but only for a month or so before it RROD's again.

Would've sworn i saw a thread almost identical to this a week or so ago. But anyways i dont believe thsi will help much, at best a short term fix that will most likely kill any possobility of a permanent fix.

You should first try the towel trick on them.

Then take it apart and check if the CPU cooler is lose, if yes: order new screws.

Then i would bake just the mobo.

NO! Don't bake, and don't do the towel trick. The towel trick will fix it, but will only fix it temporarily as it will eventually overheat again.

THIS is what you do. The X-clamp fix. Remove the heatsinks, clean off their crap thermal paste, put some Artic Silver 5 on there, and re-mount the heatsinks with screws and washers instead of the X-clamps. Then overheat the Xbox, let it cool, and it works.

I just fixed a friend's 3-ring'd Xbox a few days ago via this method.
