BUT!!!!It dont work right... oh well.

I put Fix Log because i DO intend to try to repair it.
From what i can deduce... the culprit is Water Damage.

It turns on... but that is all. the ring doesnt even light up. just the power light.

I opened it to find!!!!!!!!!!!!! see below

I currently have a pile of alcohol wipes here and coffee. the HDMI scaler chip was covered in roach droppings so that was fun to clean(sarcasm)

Most of it is up now. The RF module was a nightmare! i had to be really careful not to damage it.

More to come

He found it in the trash. One can deduce that the roach came from said trash.

Poor Xbox. How could you do such a thing to it? That's like throwing your friend away just because he has a cold.

Then again, it's an xbox... it'd be like throwing a mentally ******ed friend away.
