Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Hi, you mention you can hear the sound but get no picture then this could mean you need a new video lead so i would try this first see if a friend has one you can try also try unplugging yours and plugging it back in doing this will sometimes get it working, make sure you push it in hard enough.
the reason the wont do the repair for the 3rd time is due to the stress placed on the cpu and gpu chip by removing and refitting the heat sink, doing this pushes the chips onto the circuit board and this is how it solves the problem the first 2 times but as its failed again this points towards the solder coming away again from the circuit board and even doing the mod and letting it over heat before putting it back together probably wont seal it again so you would just be wasting money paying for the repair.
I do a lot of these repairs for customers and family and most have had no problems with it failing again after this repair and some are still going after 3 years so the repair does work but doing it 3 times would just be to much for the cpu and gpu to cope with and it would not last long even if it did work.
are you in the UK or USA let me know.
you may be able to sell the xbox for parts but thats about as much as you can do, you could put it in the well known auction site but after telling people the repair has been done twice then the chances are it wouldnt sell.
let me know what you would like to do.
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts thanks
