Xbox 360 Red Ring of Death Fix Kit


My Problem

I have xBox 360 original and I have purchased Kinet Sensor and it has become crowd please whenever my friends and relatives come and visit my house. 7 Months ago, my xbox360 give me a shock by giving Red Light like a Ghost Eye. Ala - its RROD. Since then i just put a side my Xbox and try to forget it. Because I have my PS3 and my CS game to enjoy but when my friends are coming, I miss the Xbox 360 + Kinect though!

Then I come across, RROD fix kit from iFixit. Here how the repair goes.

My Fix

I grap my iPad and open iFixit App. Launch Xbox360 RROD fix guide. I order XBox 360 RROD fix kit with tools from iFix it. So I found out that I have all the necessary tools to open my xbox.

I follow step by step guide and finally fix my XBox RROD issue. Then I hook up my Xbox 360 to my 42" TV (I have 42" :P). Don't happy yet, the xBox 360 Fire up but show me E68 Error. After Google it up, I found that it is another problem. HDD failure. I take out the HDD and my XBox is happy now and ask me to update the software but since I do not have any store attached now, I am stuck. I grab Sandisk microvalt 8GB USB drive connect to Xbox 360 and update the software. Re-Download my game ID via Windows Live ID. Vola! my Xbox 360 is happy and kinecting now. Thanks iFixit. I have done!

My Advice

When cleaning old thermal paste, its quite stubborn. I found out that applying WD-40 liquid and clean it slowly, I can do easily in 5-10 mins for both CPU and GPU heatsink. I found out that WD-40 bottle is cost like 10 Singapore Dollar and I can spray on door hinge when they make a sound. Maybe you can spray other things also but I never try :P
