I havn't had the chance to work on a Slim yet, but from my experience with Phat 360s, you should clean out the connectors for the Ring of Light board with alcohol before reattaching it to the motherboard.

SOURCE: xBox 360 wireless controller won't connect or charge

Guys, you really need to calm down... I have the same problem like you.

I'll tell you step by step why the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller won't work.

1. The controller will automatically disconnect during the gameplay, and the charging kit won't charge.

Solution: This is true what I'm saying now... Where you guys brought your wireless controllers in the stores, there was a Frequently Asked Questions book inside the kit. It told you about the importance of the charging of your wireless controller, because Microsoft informed that it's VERY important to empty your battery before charging it, because the charging kit will no longer charge your battery, and the same thing happened to me. So, if you have any questions of your wireless controller, then contact me at my gamertag, NussKarte. I'll give you new information how to fix your wireless controller.

SOURCE: XBOX 360 WIRELSS CONTROLLERS JUST BLINK WONT CONNECT

Did you try to press the sync button on both the XBOX and the controller? This should make them connect after they take a second to find out that their searching for eachother. If this doesn't work then you should call into Microsoft and talk to them because the sync system might be faulty. Try the controllers on another XBOX before calling just to make sure though.

SOURCE: xbox 360 controller won't connect to console

If your controller is not assigned a position, and pressing the sync buttons on both the console and the controller don't fix it (i.e. they both spin for a bit, but then the console's lights turn off and the controller's return to a pulsing pattern), the the problem is actually likely to be your TV, believe it or not. The issue is HDMI -- it's a secure connection between the Xbox 360 and the TV, and if there's an issue with that connection, the Xbox won't even be able to turn on since it'll be unaware of the TV's resolution, color capabilities, etc. Try turning off the TV and then turning off the Xbox. Keep the TV off and turn the Xbox console back on. You'll see the same behavior; but now turn the TV back on and you should see the controller get assigned a position. As soon as the Xbox is aware of what it's connected to via HDMI, things start to work again.

SOURCE: xbox 360 sync problem - controllers will not connect

maybe the only way is take it a part and see if the sync button is not broken some how. therefore i advise you to buy a new controller maybe even a used 1 if you dont want to spend more than $20.

Alright, So I have 2 xbox's witht he rrod. I took them apart. and accidently put the wrong disc drives back in the system. so i swapped it out, and now the original disc drive doesnt work with it either....


If you replace the same drive with the same P.C. board back in
the original console you should be good .Provide that the drive is
or was good before you took it apart ( read games) also when
attempting a generic fix it kit ( washers and screws ) and over
heating G.P.U. you can create new problems .What ever you do
DO NOT GO ON LINE with a different drive or your console you
will be band for LIFE !! If you wear successful with your repair
your drive should boot right up . a good drive in the wrong console
will post a white screen to put a 360 game in the console.
Did you just replace the heat sink compound or do a full x clamp
mod ??

Set it for 15 to 20 minutes then place 2 nylon washers on each screw on the heat sink then place the screws back in motherboard then add two more nylon washers to screws.

Then,

Place the heat sink on the peak of screws then push them down slight, finally screw them up. Try to make it reasonably tight.

Get everything back together and see everything is fitted properly. Now, Turn your Xbox 360 on.

After playing 15 minutes two red lights flash and xbox shuts down


the xbox 360 is overheating. Try to clean the vents and have it elevated off carpet or anyhtign that will not allow it to get a airflow.

Check the fans in the back of the 360 to be sure they are running ok and not blocked up.

My xbox 360 wont play discs - keeps repeating open tray, I can play demos and xbox live but not discs or movies, any tips?? Thanks!


I just found a post on this and it worked for me. My warranty is past. So I took matters in my own hands. I took it apart which was fairly simple cleaned the lens and surrounding areas but it didn't work. But this is what I found out its not reading the disk because the disk isn't spinning. With the box apart and drive open I put it back in the system and turned on the power I noticed the drive would spin slowly I then while the disk was trying to load I spun the disk by hand to help it along and wala it started spinning I powered down put it back together and as of 10:45 2night my gaming nightmare is over. I hope this was helpful. Good luck all!!

Well when i play my xbox 360 for about 15mins the back of the console where you connect the cables to the console gets very hot and then if left after about another 15mins there is a message on the screen...


I suggest getting a proper X clamp mod that takes
care of the real problems. A external fan will do little
if nothing , because the thermal transfer point at the surfaces of
the G.P.U. chip set is not making enough contact
with the heat sink , so it doesn't mater how cool you get
the heat sink the chip will still over heat.

Xbox 360 Error Code 0021


So, you took apart the Xbox 360?

The Xbox 360 has serious cooling problems; compressed air usually does wonders for the Xbox.

You'll "brick" your Xbox tampering with the fan and heat sink; soft mods are always a bad idea if you don't have any recourse for fixing the system.

Hard Mods/Mod Chips are the best way to go because you have dual boot capabilities; you can boot to the original Xbox OS or the Mod Chip firmware.

Currently, Microsoft is being sued for the number of Xbox 360 consoles experiencing the "Red Rings of Death."

Microsoft is making amends by fixing the Xbox 360 at no charge.

Taking the Xbox apart yourself may void your warranty; you might start by uses an Ohm Meter to check the heat sink and fan connections.

Also make sure there is not a gap between the heat sink and the processor; this space should be filled with the thermal compound.

Furthermore, the fan might be damaged and not reporting the fan speed through the variable resistance wire; only way to determine this is by powering the fan with +5v / -5v and checking the variable resistance wire with an Ohm meter.

My xbox wont read my game disc


if you can't send the xbox back to Microsoft this worked for me.
The 360 would spin the game up and say reading but than stop and do nothing.
I took the case apart, took out the cd drive, took that apart so i could get to the laser.
put a little big of very clean water on a q-tip, wipe the laser lens down and use the dry side to dry it off.  put it somewhat back together and test, this worked fine for me, it read a disk no problem.

My xbox 360 wont load any games.


It has happened to me twice and unfortunately the only way to solve it is sending the device to msoft. You can do this either through the phone or using the xbox.com site.

The second time it happened to me the machine was out the warranty, they offer me to pay 87 € to fix it and extended the warranty for an extra year after it.

At the end when I send it the second time they just sent me a refurbished one to avoid the problem to happen in the future.
