Xbox 360 Salvage
« on: July 18, 2022, 07:01:40 AM »
Just got a free one behind goodwill. (If it's dropped off outside of business hours it's legally dumped)

By layman terms it was dead.

How I revived it was less than epic.

1. Plug in all the things.
2. attempt a power up
3.Power no worky
4. disconnect cord from power brick. disconnect power brick from 360
5. Plug cords back in
6. attempt a power up
7.It powered up. Thing was barely ever used, never even went online.

I feel bad for the previous owner, but at least I got it before the bums who rip apart electronics for wires. (there was a stereo right next to the 360 that had already been stripped)

Great to see you were rewarded for your patient inquiry.  The former owner's loss is your gain.  I hope you have fun with it.  Sad to hear they're ripping apart stereos for wires.
