  • 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 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?

    Disc drives are useless. All xbox one games require 90 or more gig downloads so most people just buy the digital version instead of the disc. You dont need a disc drive moron

    I picked up a 500gb Xbox 1 on FB Marketplace for 20 bucks, which was listed as not working. Ended up that it was just a frozen system update. One factory reset later, I was gold.

    Why would you spend so much time scraping through layers of a motherboard? This doesn't make any sense. Replace the board. Most likely then SOLVED

    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.

      So later it started to make noises like the Xbox one s is quite when you buy it but now it just seems lot louder and it's heating up. So why I wanted to sell it, it didn't want to turn back on but I gave it a lil time to turn it back on and it turn backed on but if it starts to fail a again I'll just list it on eBay if any body is interested in some parts 😉

    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.

    thermal paste : the amount is not that important, with the pressure the paste will be
    but doing a C shape, are you sure it won't create a bubble/empty space in the center ?
