5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and it works August 24, 2010

First off, you are getting nothing but a handful of bolts, washers and a little packet of thermal paste here. It can be easily duplicated by a trip to the hardware store, but in the end having everything handed to you is much easier. Second, if you are under warranty, CALL MICROSOFT FIRST. Honestly, I have known people to buy dead boxes off craigslist that were still under warranty. As long as it has not been opened already, try.

My friend gave be his dead 360 with little explanation as to what he did to the thing (turns out he attempted a towel fix as well as what looked like a blow from a hammer). First it was giving me the 3 lights as well as an unknown error code. I was not hopeful about my odds of fixing this.

This fix was rather easy, I have had a bit of experience of taking these things apart which is the more complex issue here. All that is required is a flathead screwdriver and some torx bits (sizes 8 and 10). Pulling off the X-clamps requires patience and a bit more force than I liked. I used pliers on mine.

I recommend putting tape on the heads of the screws to hold them into the back of the board (makes things much easier for people who only have two hands). I also had some Arctic Silver thermal paste, so I did not use what came in the box.

One note on the bake-in cycle, if you get 2 lights instantly you must tighten the bolts slightly. When you have 2 lights, the console turns everything off and stops generating heat. Let it run with 3 lights for a bit and wait for that to turn into 2 lights.

The initial bake did not work for me, and from what I have read on the forums, it does not work with many people. This is because the problem is usually due to a GPU solder issue which does not heat enough when the CPU overheats.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tedious the First Time -- Simple DIY Job January 10, 2010

I have a "tampered" Xbox 360 (or two) according to Microsoft. That's fine, I got to leave the CS agent a piece of my mind when she informed of this, so I had a little fun with the news. I decided to purchase a kit to repair it myself rather than trying to track down the hardware needed from a Lowe's or Home Depot on my own. I figure at $5 convenience alone made it worth it. However, I have a buddy who also has a "tampered" 360, who did not get a kit. We got together tonight and decided to tackle our two RRoD boxes. We took a washer and a screw to Lowe's and tried our best to replicate what is in this kit. We actually had pretty good luck. We found the nylon washers first, a little different but pretty close to what's supplied. Next we found the screws. We were only able to locate flat or hex head but either one would have worked fine, we went with the flat (Phillips style is supplied in the this kit). The threads were perfect and the length was exact. We did have a hard time finding metal washers. We found where they would be in the drawer but their compartment was empty. We settled on a little larger washer that caused some trouble but we were able to work around. The total costs of his supplies for the job was about $8 while gathering everything from Lowe's. He got just the amount of nylon washers and screws but had to settle on a 100 pack of metal washers. Further proof the price is right for this kit as it cut out a lot of the tracking down hardware headaches. We also had a tube of Arctic Silver 5 and the ArctiClean two part cleaner. The Arctic Silver is essential to the job, don't use the white paste they send you. Spend a few extra bucks and get the best if you're going through all this trouble. We did the work at the same time very slowly and methodically. Read more ›

I was a bit skeptical as to whether or not this kit would work. It shipped pretty quickly and I was able to repair my xbox 360 in about 2 hours. I am sure some people can do it quicker, but I was watching youtube tutorials as I did it to make sure I did everything correctly. I decided it was worth a shot trying to fix it since I technically had a new paperweight either way! The pdf link is good, because the kit used at other places is a bit different, so you will have to refer to both. Overall I was super impressed that this worked out and for under $10 it cannot be beat. So I guess, I am now $140 richer since I did not have to send my xbox off to Microsoft! It also came with the heat paste, which is not shown in the picture. The xbox 360 has been working now without a hitch for well over a month, and that is with some pretty heavy use! Give it a try, you have nothing to lose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inevitable fix January 27, 2011
Verified Purchase
I had RRoD about a year ago, shipped it off to microsoft and it worked! Now this is only temporary obviously. I had some old arctic silver 5 laying around and a mind ready for adventure. I used this method so I could PREVENT any future RRoD. The thermal paste quality and quantity Microsoft use is quite disappointing, its like super glue and is all over the place! I used q-tips and isopropyl alcohol to clean it off, it took some time and effort but is worth it in the end. The screw setup is quite simplistic, it follows this order: screw, metal washer, nylon washer, nylon washer, metal washer. Pretty easy huh? Thats what I thought. I have to give this product 5 stars because it was only 5$ including shipping. If you are looking for an easy and relatively labor free RRod fix give this a go!

Everything it said it was. Quite frankly you can get the parts for cheaper at the hardware store but I was lazy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for temporary repairs
This product did what it said it would as far as 'repairs' go. Unfortunately with the Xbox 360 there's only so much you can do. Most repairs are only temporary.
