I fix my Xbox 360 in order to save money if I can and I didn't want to recycle it unless there was a way to fix it.
It was little difficult to fix the problem but it help me get the Xbox 360 working again.
Just relax while repairing your console and take one step at a time and don't rush it.

I could hardly hear anything from my iPhone 4s earpiece anymore.
My repair went great thanks to ifixit's very detailed instructions.
Keep your screws together with each step that you do. A screw tray would work great. I didn't have one so I used upside-down sticky notes and wrote which part of the phone the screws and parts came from. Put the screws on the sticky part of the note. Worked very well. Thanks ifixit!!!

Several Tools required for repairs to Ipads/ipods/Ima
Toosl for apples products and some specialized tools for ps3/xbox360's can be hard to find!
Got all my tools in a fast expediated service, nice professional looking toolkits and very well layed out sets. They have supplimented my already growing apple toolsets with a number of nessisary items. Only problem is i cant buy the awesome heat gun you guys sell because i am in Canada and the Customs will not allow it accross the border(boo). Other then that ...awesome sets guys great prices and fast service!
Never disregard your own ability to learn and advance your own skills in repairs. many products these days seem unrepairable and way too advanced to even begin working on but unfortunately that is what the manufacturers WANT you to believe. The guys and gals at Ifixit.com have great advice an awesome database of assisted documents for viewing and tools of almost any kind you may need for specialized systems. Dont jsut throw that broken screen unit away and dont hesitate when you have the thought "hrmm maybe this can be fixed" you will never know unless you try. And unfortunately most technitions are trained to make you believe that ONYL they can fix your gear. try its the best advice i can give. PRops to Ifixit and thanks you guys. Keep fixinit!

After three good years of service it was my Xbox 360's turn to display a solitary red ring with the E79 error. A quick websearch suggested that this could be fixed by reinserting hardware peripherals, such as the hard drive. Upon reboot I got the dreaded three 'red rings of death', the night before the birth of my second daughter. Was this a message from on high?
$130 fro Microsoft to 'sell' a refurbished console was not acceptable. The iFixit videos proved that I could resurrect my console for under $17 with some household tin foil and my father-in-law's heat gun. So far so good. MY Xbox has been faithful to me.
Thank you once again iFixit for coming through for me with excellent thermal paste videos.
With the help of the iFixit Xbox 360 RROD tutorial, it was easy to dismantle my console saftely. It gave me a chance to dust off all the internal components too.
Placing tin foil around to capacitors helped isolate the GPU and CPUs from the intense heat of the heat gun. It was the only non flammable item I could find at short notice to reflect some of the heat. I appeared to work.
Wipes and isopropyl alcohol were great for removing the old thermal paste. Household plastic wrap was ideal for applying the artic thermal paste evenly.
I paused every ten seconds or so during the four minute heating of the processors, just to avoid overheating the capacitors. So in reality it was more like five minutes.

One day while entrenched in warfare with hordes of zombies in a mall, my 360 controller that I was using decided it could no longer handle the pressure and committed suicide by diving into the zombie horde. One of the analog sticks was out of socket and the left trigger was done.
I established my sterile zone on my favorite repair table. I had to ensure the area was sanitary so no other outside influences could get in. I took out the trusty 96 piece Security Bit set out and began to dismantle. It went fine until I got to bottom 2 screws on the handles. The bit from the set was not long enough to reach the screws. I had to perform a gastroectomy to the holes in order to get the screws out. I worked through the problem and the controller was ressurected
I really think that the bits need to be about 2-3 mm longer in order to reach the screws at the bottom of the handles. This would have helped tremendously. Other then that everything went smoothly and I was able to ressurect the controller.
