Re: xbox 360 xclamp fix done now it boots but no power
I had the same exact problem and after some troubleshooting I noticed scratches on the back of my motherboard. My guess is the broken traces/damaged motherboard from taking off the x-clamps is causing this problem due to the motherboard shorting.
You could possibly fix this problem with a conductive ink pen and some other trace repair items if you see the broken trace. Other than that for the average 360 repair man I think your outa luck just like me : /.

yes you need to open your xbox and (unfasten xclamp on underside of motherboard) remove the GPU and CPU units...remove all thermal paste and apply new thermal paste...reasemble GPU and CPU units attach all cables and dvd drive and boot system up...if you have done everything right then your xbox should be as good as new....but if you still have warranty on your system just send it back to microsoft
xclamp fix,the thermal paste on your heatsinks needs replacing,just done one the same last week,it had no picture but had sound and no light on red ring but sound went off shortly after.You can learn how to do this on youtube,just search xclamp fix and plenty will show,and buy a xclamp kit off ebay,will cost about £2,if console is still under warranty for the first year its covered but if its past the first year the extended 3 year warranty dosnt cover this repair.They will charge £81 for them to fix it.And dont do towel trick it will get it working again but only for a few days and will do more damage to console
or may b due to power failure,
chck unplugging all plugs frm ur 360 n reconnecting it, if it works then its nt a rrod, if it doesnt ...
then itz rrod, u need to send your xbox 360 to fix it..
or need to get it xclamped:
here is the whole process to do a permanent fix *xlcamP* of rrod on ur xbox 360:
Its when the solder overheats and disconnects a wire in the xbox. If you have bought it within the last year, you can return or swap for new wherever you bought it. If not you will most likely have to send it off to xbox repairs.
Do you have the fan in? If you do, take it out or put 2 screwdrivers through the back holes to stop the fans from spinning. IF you have the fans out and its still not overheating, just leave it on for a while until it does. It will overheat eventually.
Here is my recommendation If the xbox is still under warranty (I mean no one has broken the sticker) don't open it yet The reason for this is microsoft will warranty an xbox 360 against the three RROD The problem you are having is/maybe related to the same thing and what is happening is the graphics processor is no longer responding properly. Many others on this site have recommended a fix that I am hesistant to recommend, but does work, TEMPORARILY. I only recommend this fix if you are trying to preserve the console s warranty as this is a non invasive fix. All you need to do is wrap the console up ina thick blanket or several towels (do not use wet towels as water damage is not covered under warranty) and turn the console on. This will cause it to super heat and eventually overheat (this is not particularly good for the console, or permanent) Once it has overheated (about 45 minutes in the towels/blanket) unwrap it and let it cool. After about 1 hour of cooling try to restart the console and see if you have video For an out of warranty more permanent fix try the xclamp replacement mods outlined in other sections of this forum or search on google for xclamp replacement
