I've fixed a bunch of no video and e74 360s, but this one isn't calling quits!:(
Well i first reflowed it and did what i usually do, then finished and plugged it back up, booted, nice! Played Gears 2 and Halo 3 on 1080i for about 2 hours, worked flawlessly. The next day, turn it on just to make sure it didn't come back, left it on for 30 mins. Cool, didn't come back, so I give back the 360, the guy says as soon as he gets home e74 popped up, oh crappyyy.
Now I heatgunned again, changed all the bolt tensions, nothing, won't boot up again, but then again, i'm still using the stock xclamps, but the guy didn't want to pay an extra 5 bucks so i didn't replace them, but I have fixed many other 360s and reused the xclamps, they're still running till this day.
Anyone have any solutions? I heard that putting a big blob of duct tape under the middle of the xclamp will get rid of it since it changes the tension on the clamps, should I try this out?

i wouldnt advise using duct tape as i cant see how it would change the tension that much
i would reflow again do the xclamp mod its not overly exspensive
also might want to consider 12v modding the fan
just some suggestions

Well Iím only getting paid 10 bucks for this, so if I paid for his xclamp kit, then Iíll only be getting paid $5. For $10, Iíd say Iím already being generous.

Oh I see, I buy my bolt kits in bulk anyway so they dont cost as much as buying an already put together kit for 360s.

500 washers for £6.00 http://cgi.ebay.co.u...em=300299847062

100 bolts for £10 http://cgi.ebay.co.u...-...93:1|294:30

He sells the washers in 150 packs for £2.20, and 25 bolts for £2.50, thats about the same price most people charge for 1 kit!. thats how I can afford to just give them if needed smile.gif

I know you arent in the UK but there must be simalar deals around wink.gif
