Xbox 360 colours washed out after RROD fix

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I just finished doing a routine X-Clamp fix on a friends RROD xbox with the usual 0102 secondary error code.

Now he told me that after turning it on, he notices the colours are washed out, there isn't any graining or lines coming down the screen to indicate its a problem with the HANA/ANA chip, but in this case I'm not sure what it would be.

Yes I did try different AV cables.

washed out as in slightly tinted blue, red, or green? If it is tinted then it usually means the gpu heatsink isnt on properly (maybe too tight, too loose etc)

Well, probably not the ANA/HANA here or if it is it is a weak solder joint. Have you tried reflowing the motherboard? If you did a routine X-Clamp fix, there may be weak solder joints still on the board. When I fix these, I use a solder reflowing station and also perform the x-clamp fix and works every time. If you want to reflow it on your own, remove the motherboard, and the the heatsinks from the motherboard. Use a reflowing station to rejoin the broken solder joints, or an electronics grade heatgun. If using a heatgun, you need to cover the plastic components and the capacitors with aluminum foil or heat resistant thermal tape. The heatgun method should be used with caution. The best method is a reflowing station with an air solder gun available. Also, make sure that your capacitors near the ANA bridge are stable by testing them with a capacitance meter.

Its more of a greenish tint, I tried loosening/tightening the bolts on the gpu, still nothing.

Unfortunately I dont have a reflow station with me, I only have a heatgun, its probably the best I can do right now, but I don't want to risk doing more harm that good at this point.
