Yea that seems like you accidentally didn't plug the fan in. IDK... sucks either way : / Xenons and Zephyrs are basically junk nowadays.
Fixed that for you.
If OP reflowed a Falcon or a Jasper it likely did not need to be. Some...unintelligent people...try to do the x-clamp mod on Falcons and up, which does not help at all and probably
causes more damage than good. Falcons and especially Jaspers have a very low failure rate. If OP had to reflow and used a heatgun, oven, or anything but a several thousand dollar reflow station, he obviously caused some damage. These poor man's methods were never perfect and many people ended up with dead boxes for some reason or another. You probably fried something on the board.
Slims are a bitch to take apart. Phats take like 30 seconds.
Edit, to above^: My Falcon JTAG has a 3.5" HDD mod in it, which required soldering to a Mosfet and all kinds of scary wiring and it works perfectly. Has for four years almost. Falcons run just beautifully. Zephyrs and Xenons do not.
Edit Edit: I have never seen an E82 and I've handled dozens of slims. It is a very isolated issue and is not common. It's well within industry standards for failure, unlike the first gen 360s.This post has been edited by rastaman108037: May 1 2012, 07:09 AM
