  • 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.

    My mate has had 4 Original Xbox Consoles, 5 Xbox 360 Consoles & 2 Xbox One consoles and every single one has done the same thing, the disc tray stops reading. He could have kept buying but he gave up as they would only work a month or two. His second Xbox One's disc tray didn't even last a month.

    12:56 Is it though? I've always placed 2 dots in the center, 2 mm apart. That way after it's clamped down and spread around, you can still see the IHS through the paste, and it doesn't spill over the IHS edges.

    My father does manufacturing; Instead of reballing you can just reflow them- liberal amount of flux+ heatgun or if you have a BGA heat plate and have some fun! You'd be surprised how often it is just one ball that just needed some more heat to get that solder flowing...
