  • 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.

      I have a question , you're repairing these in your business , where are you getting all the components IC ext. If you can't even get schematics, how on Earth are you getting parts, can't possibly be doing all your repairs with damaged and unrepairable boards?

                my dad is a certified computer technician that will not expire. after he got certified he said the new cert will need to re-cert every year.
                He said to tell tronicstix that he removed the fan bracket safely enough away from circuits and pcb.
                If your not a computer tech or yours needs renewing each year you have no right to judge the tech. Or, watch another video.

                                      I made big money selling rgh/jtag/cex/dex/cfw
                                      I also had my own stealth "17150" server to bypass gold and such. never figured out the 6month method like XBL Ninja, but i did all right on my own. If a 17 year old can do all this, And more.. what is your excuse. Though i lost all the money, Even was forbidden from using any electronics, Or online. Due to dumb stuff in the past. But the point is.. if there is a will there is a way. don't be weak.

                                        Big profit i say, 18k or just buy a full BTC and wait till it hits 27k again rinse and repeat. easy money.

                                                                place the board in a oven set at 70 degrees and leave there for about an hour and a half then put it back together Quickly and try to boot the xbox one,,

                                                                moisture lock cause from the system being very hot playing during a hot day,, then it rains at night the HOT air inside of the xbox CONDENSES overnight while cooling forming water moisture inside ..

                                                                the humidity can get under the chip due to condensation of the metal and the board in extreme temperature fluctuations and high humidity environments ...

                                                                really not many people bother to do what you are doing hats off to you ,,
                                                                but yeah i don't expect you to try my method but i had some luck fixing some older style stuff with this method
                                                                ,, funny thing too is it might even be something to do with a capacitor not giving correct voltage when you heat the whole board up seems to give the capacitors more charge or excite what charge they have ,, like lighting a fire under the Car to warm it up
                                                                old saying is hot things move faster then cold ,, might be something too Heating up the modules,,,
                                                                like that as it powers but doesn't Post
                                                                it auto turning off would also be sign that Moisture might be stopping the module chip from reading on the Post of the system ..
