Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I'm trying to repair an Xbox 360 the only problem is it looks like someone before me whilst trying to remove the Xclamps has left a scratch. The scratch looks as though it cuts through the connection from a RAM chip to the CPU. I'm guessing its why the Xbox now wont boot up and only shows the three red lights. Is there anything I can do to repair this or is this Xbox finished. i have scratched my motherboard trying to do xclamp fix because i got 3 red lights but when i turn it on now 3 red lights appear straight away fans are working still, power supply adaptor is green can i still repair 3 red lights or is it over.
Usually if a motherboard has been scored or damaged.
( tracks or resistors/capacitors dislodged et,c )
The board is in the Bin. ( scrap ) unless the damage can be repaired. The RROD Or red-ring of death. Is usually due to the x-clamps fitted to the console initially, by the manufacturer.
Replacing the x-clamps, with a kit ( bolts/washers thermal Compound ) And 4 x heatpads recommended. Can cure the RROD. And in my own experience the 1 red light And E74 error.
Bottom line, if the boards scratched. it,s in the Bin.

Im sorry but this is the equivelant of a car being written off. It cant be fixed, simple as that. If it is possible to be fixed, it would work out cheaper to just buy a new one
