Error Code 0132 HELP! Elite (Ben Q Drive)
I have an xbox 360 ELITE i got from a friend because it had 3 red rings or 1, it had issued with the grapics ship, i then repaird it with pennies posing as pressure to reconnect the motherboard layers etc and to conduct heat, here is the guide i used
It worked fine for a few days, until there were lines in the screen and i tried alternating the pennies and disks with no luck, the Xbox kept overheating with 2 red lights (the overheating ones) it stays on for around 2 minuted maximum and i identified the code in sequence it went 4-1-3-2 (this translated to code 0132) and i cannot fix this, i have not repaired the console in any other way, but please help!!! i thought about the thermal paste option and Xclamps but i would like a second opinion as im a noob to Xbox repairs!!. (I'm pretty sure i included every detail)
wazzzat, the problem with the fix you used is that it is pretty much a hit or miss. The issue here is that the solder around the contacts of your GPU is no longer making proper connection. I would remove the penny fix and redo it with either the RROD fix kit from here. The better way would be to reflow your board, using this guide. the best way of course would be to reball your board. For that you need to use a professional service, unless you have the proper equipment available. I most certainly recommend using thermal paste on the heat sinks. Hope this helps, good luck
