Error 0031 Loose Gpu Related?
Posted 24 February 2009 - 10:09 AM
Just a note apparently there can be something to do with the ram bricks but im not sure what these are and also it can be because the heat sinks are touching the resistors but from what i can see this is not the case.
Anyone got any ideas?
Also this is the thread i used to try sort mine out http://forums.xbox-s...howtopic=660069
But to no avail
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Spec wise in case anyone needs it.
360 elite with 120gb HDD with HDMI port
MFR Date 2008-09-07
Lite-On Drive (flashed)
Not sure what other specs might be needed.
One last thing i have fixed at least 30 360's with various errors and flashed all types of drives including the new lite-on so i definitely know my around a 360 (other than the ram blocks... go figure lol) but this one has me absolutely stumped. I have only owed it for about 2months and just flashed it about 2 days ago was working fine up until today when i decided to do the prevention mod.

Its like this, i'll turn on the 360 and it'll boot up normally but as soon as I would play a game, boom instant rrod, but then I realized if i have no fans on at all, and let the heatsinks warm up a little, then it would play games like normal, i still have this problem but whatever. I just let it warm up and i can play for hours with no rrod.
Also, check your thermal paste, make sure none of it is touchiing anything else, like resistors or something. Just on the both of the chips.

um idk, i would say scrape off the old thermal pste and re apply some new stuff and tighten the sinks down as tight as theyll go.

And without the fans doesn't really make a difference cause the fans don't even work, when i turn the 360 on straight away within 1 sec of power on i get the error and the sinks don't heat up even after a half hour of it running.
Will try getting hold of some m5 stainless washers and re thermal pasting it, i just hope like hell its not a cold solder joint under one of my ram bricks or CPU/GPU.
Will keep you guys posted, if anyone else has any ideas I'm down to try it as its pretty much fucked anyway.
Cheers so far.
And i did try put the clamps back on but didn't really work
