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.

Not true because I took mine apart because we think the fuse blew in the storm and my disk drive can disconnect and reconnect so now I'm missing a fuse and hard drive

I remember the Original NES when it came out and how we blow into the cartridge to get it going and sometimes it would blink in the middle of the game and we yell at it and punch and kick it that console was the worst I went though 4 of them just beating the hell out of them but there was one that outlived them all it take the beating and keep working like a hunk of junk those things were built tough unlike today's Consoles

I get nervous when I'm 11 minutes into the video and we're still on the 1st of 18 Xboxes!

some problems with "power on then power off" issue can be fixed by blowing hot air on the heat sink with hair dryer for about 5 minutes. dont ask me how that works, it just does. ( but not always)

This is the same concept as chucking a circuit board into the oven to re-flow the soldering on dodgy boards, as the solder may be cracked on a component and the heat helps it melt and fix the crack.

What do you mean the disc drive cannot be replaced?! If it fails you have an Xbox only for scrap?!? That's gotta be bs.

Drew Bartlett
@HexiaDesigns //IGN why are you even arguing with me theres no need to just let it be
HexiaDesigns //IGN
@Drew Bartlett you can tell by led on motherboard
Drew Bartlett
@HexiaDesigns //IGN he doesnt have it connected to the television for him to tell whether or not its truly turning on

Don't sound like fixing xboxs is worth the time or return on investment. Might be be more profitable to simply buy them for cheap and sell for a nice profit.
