Wilgo45 did a repair on an E74 Xbox 360. Fired it up and tested it out and working fine! Wilgo45 did a very good job at keeping communication and keeping me up to date on whats going on. He also did a run down to check other parts of the system to let me know things that i should be aware of like my dvd drive making noise or checking the laser for dust when he clearly didn't have to. I have no doubt that if any of my other 360s fail he is the guy I will be sending them to if he is still repairing when that happens!

All around great service! thanks wilgo45.

Failed on a repair for dopesun

This was either the 3rd or 4th reball I had done for him. Different consoles.

He sent me videos demonstrating some power glitches. Figure it might be some Power Regs or other transistors. When the consoles arrives to me - No glitches.

After looking over the motherboard, found missing SMT and curve to the Mobo and Gpu.
Setup a mild heat treatment to straighten out the board - using just underside heating.

After that, the console displayed an E74. So, started in on a reball. Reball did not correct. Did the process again .... still no.

Upon removing the original Gpu a third time; the power core started a collapse on the bottom chip layer.

So .... an appropriate Gpu replacement was bought and installed. Console still came back with RROD. Pulled and reballed the replacement Gpu .... Still RROD after that.

Moral of the story ? ... there is none

Repair work was done for prb

This time, not a 360 console at all. But an Apple iMac.

prb sent me the Graphics Card to work on. I reballed the Processor chip with fresh Leaded spheres. Chip is an Nvidia 7600 GT.

prb reports that the work was successful.

I want to add myself as a satisfied customer and reiterate comments made by others. Wilgo repaired my xenon for me at a reasonable price. I needed a reball for a video problem and came to him with the issue. The repair was quick, and I was informed the entire time.
He took the time to find out exactly what was going on and solved the problem, along with cleaning up some of my rushed soldering.
Thanks again, updated to the latest dash using j-runner, and all is well.

Shipping was reasonable as well.
