I see - ISkate0I - has already posted comments. Which was very cool of him

I was going to comment on the repair work done to his system.

Both his Gpu and Cpu had to be lifted and reballed. They got distorted by the use of a hardware store heatgun. The chips luckily didn't sustain damage, but the pins got way distorted. - That part was corrected

He had also lost some ceramic capacitors from the bottom side of the board. Sort of underneath the Southbridge chip. Five caps in all. And in three locations he had lost some connection pads to the board routes. At two spots the connection pads were intact, so I was able to replace those surface mount caps.

Heatgun might have been responsible for the lost of those Caps too. Heatguns don't do you any favors Ladies and Gentlemen. Just say no

At one point his ejection button for the dvd drive had been replaced. This being the small button assembly that is soldered to the motherboard. The solder joints were real ugly. Cold soldered and clunky. Got those straightened out.

25 watt soldering irons won't cut with the 360. Irons got to be hotter than that. Plus there are better, special tips

Lastly - I replaced his center LED on his Ring of Lights board. The one that was on there was completely blown. It's just me, but I like seeing that center light on when you power up.

I will give you my apology. I meant no edge to my comments.

Boards are here. One repaired. Both waiting

I looked to edit - but the option is not there anymore. You posted right after - so I don't have edit option anymore. Unless you can suggest how to now

I guess - let me know

To All Out There

dopesun is probably a decent guy. I don't really know him though

He has had the distinct pleasure of butting heads with me. Which I'm sure is just a trip

I get stubborn sometimes - so this is probably most my fault

Completed a repair for Shawnmos

Another Gpu reball to get the Dashboard back

Plus I replaced the spindle motor in Dvd Drive. The original was braking too hard when the disc was slowed.

These repairs done last week. Shawnmos should have his system back on Monday

Hopefully he will leave his comments here about the work done

Completed a repair for chronotrigger681

He should have his console back in this home Thursday (6-28-12)

Repair was a Gpu chip reball

Did lots of cleaning to the main board, fans and dvd drive.

Oh- and a few minor Cooling Mods. Nothing electrically based.

He was a real good customer to work with
