I used lawdawg's x clamp replacement tutorial successfully over a year ago. Recently I got the 3 red lights. I tried adjusting the screws tightness and overheating, tightening, cleaned off the thermal paste and added some fresh AS5 all with no luck. After redoing the thermal paste instead of taking 2 minutes to overheat and switch to only two red lights.. it took about 6 minutes. Since I've already done the replacement what else is there I can do to recover my xbox? Would I be better off having someone repair this for me for a fee?
If this is not the right forum to post this is in I am sorry. It's been along time since I've visited the site.
