E74 Wont Go Away Even With Proper Heatgun Reflow?
Posted 12 May 2009 - 05:22 AM
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 would reflow again do the xclamp mod its not overly exspensive
also might want to consider 12v modding the fan
just some suggestions

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