First the Towel Trick is turning your console in to a easy bake oven.
In side the console will reach 170deg . Capacitors don't like this and
will weaken or die prematurely if repeated . The console G.P.U. will
most likely need a solid reflow and a Hardware up grade in-order to
make it durable ( trouble free operation)

The second is to use a repair kit , this may restore normal operation but this repair tend to also damage the P.C. board
making a repairable console unrepairable.

The third is to install what's called a Conformal Compression Assembly . aka G.P.U. clamping bracket this will restore
the console and minimize stress on the P.C. board .

If you have any questions please ask before rating this tip

Thank You
