Anybody good at repairing damaged traces on an xbox 360?
« on: June 04, 2010, 09:24:54 AM »
I have an HDMI Xbox 360 which has some traces damaged on the motherboard which look like they were cause by a careless technician who's screwdriver slipped damaging the board. Looks like they shorted too. From what i can see there are around 4 - 6 damaged traces all next to each other. (I can post a picture later on).

Obviously the xbox doesnt work anymore.

Is there anyone willing to take the challenge to fix it or is this a dead case not worth the hassle?

Way to much work. It probably work out cheaper buying a new XBox.

If there is damage on outer-tracks there is most probably damage with there internal board tracks. As this damage was not coursed by normal usage but by a violent physical damage (even if it was not intended).

If some wants to have a go let them, but if they want payment. Then I would only them do if they agreed do it on the condition that you would only pay them if it works. They could end trying to fix it and it wasn't possible to get working again and invoice you for them time other wise. Both of you must agree to this before any work is done.

I think you are right. It is too much work as the traces of the xbox 360 unlike Amiga 500 ones (which i had some sucess repairing) are very very tiny and very close to each other.

I think my best bet is buying an Xbox 360 motherboard (+ drive key to spoof on my current dvd drive) which has the RROD (3 red lights) from ebay (They go really really cheap) and then attempt to fix the RROD problem. I've successfully managed to fix every RROD xbox 360 i tried fixing till now, so its worth the risk and def much much less work than fixing the damaged trace.
