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.

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...

the only way to fix an xbox one is to sell it on ebay and try to get the money you paid for it back

That hard drive noise is because of a stuck reader head. You can't fix it unless you have really expansive precision tools (Been there, done that, tried to fix an EXT hard drive with tools in my garage, I ended up busting it even worse)

I really like what you are doinig. To be honest i like it so much that i want to get started into electronics. My problem is i don't know where to start. Can you give some advice for electronics beginner on how to get on the right path? Edit: I don't want to do it to earn money with it. I just want to have fun with it.

Each of his fixed Xbox's get's a 30 minute warranty. You can pay extra for the extended 60 minute warranty.

By far the worst method I have ever seen thermal paste applied by.
The Super Spowart
@TronicsFix I kinda feel the same about the thermal paste, usually on processors for a pc you don't cover half of it with the thermal paste.

I always use the perfect method and the perfect amount of paste 😉

Hello. I like your video! What do i look at when my son’s xbox 1s sometimes when you hit the on button, it sometimes does not light up and other times when you press the on button, it lights up then after a few seconds shuts off? I have it apart and I’d like to take a look inside. I think it’s the fan but I don’t have it apart fully to test.

I have always struggled getting my head around electrics, can anybody educate me on what "shorting" is exactly?
TronicsFix 6 days ago
That's when the current (electricity) goes to ground when it's not supposed to. When it does that a lot of current goes through the circuit at once which causes a large spark and/or a lot of heat.
