  • I bought 18 broken Xboxes - Can I Fix Them and Make Money? These Xbox One S and X consoles came from a liquidation company. I'm hoping to be able to make money off this salvage lot but there are several problems with Xboxes that I've never been able to fix so wish me luck!

    About This Video: Xbox One S and X consoles are usually not too hard to fix. That being said there are several problems that they have that I've never been able to figure out how to fix. I took a chance and bought 18 broken Xboxes from a salvage liquidation company to see if I could fix them and it I could make money on them.

    Should have used a load tester to check your power supply and wheter it could support the typical current draw as well as using a regulated 12VDC bench supply so you don't some more than the component that is already blown.

    I had an uneasy feeling when you were pointing at something under the running fan with your graphite pencil. If it hit the fanblades, I imagine some of the conductive material getting broken off and dispersed onto the electronics. Could this actually be a problem or are the particles too tiny to do anything?
