Xbox 360 Not Loading Dashboard, Freezing On Xbox Logo Screen
Posted 02 August 2009 - 11:24 AM
I have problem with xbox 360, it's model without HDD, no HDMI, production date 2006-09-10, PAL version with LG-Hitachi DVD drive.There is no RROD or any othere problems like this, there is Video and Audio. Console is switching ON, and animation with XBOX 360 logo is starting, you can also hear the sound. But then when animation is finished, you can watch this logo on the screen forever, nothing more happen. I waited 5 mins and no change, no reaction for pressing any buttons on controller. Motherboard looks fine, it's straight and there is x-clamp fix (2 metal washers from CPU/GPU side). If someone have any ideas how to fix or what is causing this problem, any support will be appreciated.
P.S Sorry for my english

Here is what you can do:
1. Replace the thermal paste with new Arctic Silver 5, on both CPU and GPU.
2. Heat it like Llama's RROD tutorial.
3. Use extra heat pads on memories to cool them down.

I had a kid bring me one to try fix that had the same problem last week, Had water damage in it from where it spilt a drink on it. I did the x-clamp fix and heatgun fix aswell as clean up all the goey stuff from the spilt drink.
And it still did the same thing.
So if your the same guy, Ill tell you again. It cant be fixed theres to many points that have been shorted.
If you just brought it I hope its not the same xbox, Or if your a complete different person.
Good luck on fixing your one.

First @majinsoftware i'm pretty much sure it's not the same xbox. Im writing from london BTW, as you asked. Anyway thermal compound was very old and dry after propably months of using, so it can't be the same one.
Malfunction still occurs after replacing thermal compound, that was first thing i did before posting here, and there is no change at all after this. I don't think heatgun will be good to give it a try, it's working for short time i guess. I next month propably i will buy hot air soldering station, and i will try reballing, i tought it's not a problem with board getting bended but more with dashboard or any other software problem, not a hardware issue. But looks like everyone in the world always bringing everything to OVERHEATING about Xbox's 360 (and maybe in this particular problem, that's the reason). So if no one have any other ideas or similiar problems, hot air and reballing is the next try for me.
