I have a SMELLY XBOX for sale which I call Old Smelly (not very creative but my three year old came up with it.) Here is the background on the Unit. I purchased three XBOXs online and recieved them yesturday. I was told they did not turn on. I tried them and only one did not turn on at all the others just christmas lights. So I deciede to open up the one that does not turn on and noticed it smelled funky. I took off the top and bame I was hit with a smell that made me gag. The XBOX was covered in dead roaches (the bug not the smoking kind). There was roach crap evry where. It was caked on everything.
Well I tok it apart and had to throw away the case, hard drive and the cover to the philips drive. I clean it up with anti static wipes and clorox wipes. I got everything cleaned but could not get rid of the smell. I placed evrything I could in zip lock bags and sprayed a napkin with Lysol and ziped it up. I help 50% of the smell. But if you get real close you can still smell it. I sprayed Lysol in the air and let it land on the motherboard and other stuff which helped some more. I clean and clean and then place everything back in another XBOX case I had powered up locked a hard drive in and it works.
The philips drive works perfect and everything else does too.. Nothing it just smells. Now on a scale of smell from one to ten I say it is now a five or so. Make offers. It is a v1.1 mobo, philips drive, stock hard drive. I say about $40 plus shipping if not make offers.

Forgot to mention I am not sell this thing in parts. Will only sell everything at once. Also it is just for the console no cords and controllers. I might have an RF unit but no RCA jacks. Also No international shipping, wil only ship in the lower 48. Shipping will be about ten bucks and will be sent USPS with delivery comfirmation. I do take paypal but if you want to send a money order please get a tracking number or something for it to prove it was sent.

This exact case happened to me with an XBOX I got for $60. And I spent about 3 hours cleaning it completely.
Therefore, $40 + shipping for one that has already been cleaned up is a really good deal.
People just need to mantain their XBOX in a neat place to avoid all this bug issues. I had to wear a mask when cleaning this thing up because it made me throw up as well.
Good Luck selling.
