Hi, I've opened up my xbox360, only to find that the memory chips don not have a rubbery material on the memory chips..What does this mean?? and should I still go ahead and put the cut up erasers on memory chips??

The XBox 360 is a wonderful video
game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser (and/or other components in
the drive) will eventually burn out.
The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start
freezing during game play. Eventually the games will stop reading altogether
and you will get an "OPEN TRAY" message when you put a disc in and close the
tray. What this means is that the XBox 360 thinks that there is no disc in
You can find more information about this issue, find parts to repair it, or send your system to repair all at the following website:
You can open it and try to fix it if you don't have warranty. But if you do then take it to Microsoft so you can get a brand new 360 and a Jasper Motherboard which is good. But if you don't have warranty, then try to clean your Lens from your CD -ROM there could be dust on them.
Thanks for using Fixya.
it was a bad idea modding your xbox because in order to do so they have to remove a special chip or rewire so the chip is skipped.this chip stopped your h77 turner lap from over heating which is what has happened causing it to leak.you need a new UNMODDED xbox oh and whatch that liquid it,s highly acidic
this is an other heating error. usually caused by one of the RAM chips.
you will need to reflow the ram chip to fix this error.
This guy here has a 6part video guide on reflowing the xbox360, during reflowing the complete motherboard he covers the ram chips: http://www.youtube.com/user/ohiocitysales#p/u
Xbox 360 overheating? Overheating
is unfortunately an extremely common problem. The console's fans whurr
so loudly that you'd think it would be fine, but whilst drowning out a
lot of the sound from your games you need to ensure that it is in a
well ventilated area. Try to make sure that there is nothing
surrounding it and that it is not too close to a heat source.
The problem is with a heat sink on the video processor, the heat sink
(the cooling unit) that sits above it is too small. This means this
chip gets very hot. Heat is not being pulled off the processor by the
fans in the back and by the heat sink extension. Even the accessory
fans that clip on the back are not enough. A solution if you don’t mind
the Xbox all opened up is to open the Xbox to access the DVD ROM (do
this only on systems that no longer carry a warranty). The DVD Rom is
covering the heat sink. Remove the DVD ROM from its normal location and
set aside still connected. Either using CP cooling fans or even a small
electric fan point it at the heat sink. The system will no longer
There are many cause's & solutions to this very problem. if your problem persists please don't hesitate to ask for help again
The reason I suggest this is it is the most common problem for the Xbox360 freezing.
If this fails as well I suggest one last thing. If you can surf threw your xbox360 console I would suggest going threw the memory of the xbox to see if anything has corrupted, there will be a caution/warning sign letting to know if said/file is corrupted.
Clearing the xbox360 cache afterwards can also help
Your about to have the RROD which is (ring of death) cause by over heating. This is mostly caused from ms not bolting in the heatsink to the motherboard's chips right. Your only option is to send it into ms. If you cant then you have to open the case and install a kit called xclamp, its not that expensive at all, it does require opening the 360. There are thousands of tutorials on youtube how to install it.
