How to fix hdmi


on the board just after the hdmi connector there is a chip check this for cracks or any thing that dont look normal. if looks fin there is a row of resisters these should all have around the same resistance. change if dont set with others. if you get a blue screen when on hdmi that dont say no signal then it is the main graph chip at fault. best to do both chips the main processor and the graphic chip, remove the heatsink's and put a copper sleeve over them both and some new heat sink paste and put the heat shields back on, use a hair dryer and heat them up then tighten the screws up on the heatsinks, then put back in the unit. should work again now. if not then its a faulty mother board and further testing will need to be done.

I'll turn it on and the green light will show, but then it blinks, turns yellow, then shuts down on its own.


THE PROBLEM IS DUE TO EXTREAM HEAT GENERATED BY THE 'GPU' WHICH IS NOT DISSSIPATED PROPERLY OR HEATSINK COMPOUND IS DRY

How do you fix the 2 light red ring of death?


That depends on cause.

1 The heatsink compound has seeped away from the
GPU and or CPU chip set.This will force the console
to over heat quickly 1 min or less.

Solution 1

Open the console remove the heatsinks for both chips
clean of the old heatsink compound and reapplie heatsink compound ( Articsilver5) and reassemble and test.

2 if solution 1 failed then the console will need to have the
chips reflowed and reclamp , or you can do what's called
and x clamp mod with screw and washer .This will probably
fix your console but it's a quick fix and doesn't last long.

If you have any further questions your welcome to ask.

Where Can I Get A Free Xbox 360 RROD Repair Guide ?


Goto the hard wear store buy 8 10-32 x 3/8 long pan head screws
Goto Radio Shack buy a tube of articsilver5
Now get a set of torx screw drivers ,you need T8 and T10 sizes
find a tutorial on how to disassemble your console.
remove all the studs on both heatsinks and remove the heatsink paste
clean off the thermal paste from the G.P.U- C.P.U

Now place a small amount off articsilvers on the G.P.U-C.P.U
spread it around with your finger ,till you have good coverage
Place both heatsink back on line up the holes and just finger tight
thread all the screws back in so that both heatsinks are level
finger tight only then turn etch screw a full turn till snug not tight

put the unit back together leave the fan hanging out .
Now place half the fan over the the large heatsink .
and power up . After 5 min the fan should be at full speed
normally 4 more min you should see two red lights unplug
and reassemble , and this will get you up and running
average running time is 2-4 month .

P.S. heat gun repairs will destroy your Board , so a word
to the wise , have a shop do a proper re-flow never attempt
to re-flow with a heat gun.

That's it

2 red light error heatsinks wont heat up


2 red flashing lights means your console overheated you just needed to let it cool and or check the fans and other cooling components, and by the sounds of it not heating up you have cooked the chips by trying to fix it so you console is basically a paper weight now, sorry

Xbox 360 immediately goes to 2 red rings (on start-up)


Temp sensor might be bad or there might be a short between the board and the sensor.

Error 0102 on xbox


is it the heatsink is tight enough and the position of the heatsink are balance or not because if the heatsink not balance gpu or cpu will not properly transfer the heat and make sure to there is no component touching the heatsink suchas condensator on the left of the main memory ic's with brown color 2 thiny things, and that my your console still 3rrod. if you have done check it up repeat the instuction from the fist and the fan is on and the shroud was in original place and heat up the console with towel for fasting the heat.
note. the 3rrod came because the component soldering not properly soldered or that had sort contact with the other component.
