My Xbox went boom last night so looking for a replacement console.

Anybody got one gathering dust that they don't want.

I've got a sealed copy of Crackdown 2 to put towards it.

Let me know.

Cheers.

Red lights and all that crap. I'm way out of warranty so I'm just looking for a cheap replacement.

Have unbanned falcon console (hdmi) £50 delivered or xenon £40

Whats the difference between the falcon and xenon motherboards?

Have either had RROD?

Hi mate
does it have to be a hdmi model and are you going online with it as i have one thats not hdmi but works fine and not banned, or i have an elite that is banned but works ok for playing games.

Xenon doesn't have hdmi but can get 1080p tho component cable
Yes they had rrod of death before but have been permanently fixed by reballing the cpu and gpu with 60/40 lead solder.
This is the only way to eradicate the rrod as it is caused by using lead free solder the microsoft use.
Been using my reballed xbox console for over a year and it has never given me rrod again

Ideally looking for a HDMI one and wanting to play on live too.

Willing to move a little on price with the HDMI one?

Got a sealed copy of Crackdown 2 I can put towards it.

Most people how say they fix xbox do re-flow heating chips up with heat gun that works for a about 1 week - 4 weeks until the solder cracks then RROD.

Reballing is removing the chips (cpu/gpu) on the motherboard removing the lead free solder and replacing it with 60/40 lead solder that stop the solder balls from cracking that causes the rrod.

Why is LEAD better?
Lead is far superior for this application because of the circumstances it is to endure. Lead solder is maluable and does not fracture, It is able to conform and move with any stresses the console can throw at it.

I use a simple painstripping heatgun to fix RROD/E74, have done for the past 3 years. In my experience 95% repair fine, of these 80% seem to last a good few months and maybe 60% I don't every hear back from.

Obviously reballing is the best way but it's expensive and very time consuming. I've only seen the one guy that offers this service for £80 + postage.

So reballing is worth doing. Hhhmm. I'll keep that in mind.

Anyone else?

Thank god someone that actually fixes these. I reflow with a proffesional rework station and dark IR preheater and looking to reball now. But this guy is right about the leaded solder.

Also the motherboards are too thin and warp easily

Replied.

Anyone else?
