Hello, I got this xbox from a friend, when I turn it on it makes a loud noise and I get a screen saying that my xbox needs repair, also the light flashes red and green, I decided to open it up and I found a loose condenser and this was on the motherboard, any suggestions? what can I do? sell it on ebay for parts? do you think it can be repaired? not worth it? thanks a lot for your suggestions.

that looks pretty shot, try cleaning it up with rubbing alcohol and see how bad it looks then, for what the caps cost you might as well try to fix it, i think they are about a buck each and you'll need at least 2.
the orange on the carbony-charred part kinda looks like the thing was on fire as you were taking the pic tongue.gif

That's a V1.0 board with a fried aerogel but the board looks gone as well as a few traces. You can try by fixing it but I think it's pretty much toasted. Even after spending $6+ on the aerogel there is still the matter of testing the surrounding Capacitors and leads.

If you have lots of time and the parts on hand then I would say go for it but otherwise you just might need a new mobo/hdd combo.

Well, since you opened it, that knocks off a lot of value from ebay. But you can scrap the parts if you want. Just give a detail of what is in the xbox, or just part it out (parting it out may bring in more money).

Sometimes I get error 21 or error 16
It says YOUR XBOX REQUIRES SERVICE, PLEASE CALL XBOX TECHNICAL SUPPORT in many languages.

That looks pretty fucked to me. Good luck repairing those traces under there!

The 'Aerogel' is the capacitor that acts like a battery; it keeps the clock set. It is also the capacitor which blew up on his motherboard, spreading crap everywhere and probably ruining a few traces.
