So far I ordered two of these kits (yes I was a dummy and bought another Xbox360 after the first one broke down) and both worked. I fixed my own and the other for my son so now he has an Xbox360 too. This kit is relatively simple to use if you follow the instructions which you will have to download from a website that is listed on a piece of paper with the kit. The first time it took me about two hours because I didn't know how to open the Xbox360 up but after getting the disassembly and re-assembly process down I can do a repair in 30 - 45 mins.
A word of advice. Make sure you follow the instructions to the letter and use tape to hold the screws in place on the circuit board. If you did it the way I did, you will have to hold the circuit board face up (normal way) with the tape holding the screws in place and take the tape off carefully as you screw them back into the heat sink when you carefully place it on top of them. Otherwise the washers will come lose and go all over the place. You'll find out what I'm talking about when you get there. Another good thing about this kit is you do NOT have to drill any holes to fix the unit.
On one of my Xboxes the power button was stuck when I put the faceplate back on. At first I kept disassembling the unit thinking I hadn't put it back together correctly but then figured out that the plastic "springs" on the power button were warped and were pushing the button against the switch inside so that it was stuck when I put the faceplate back on. It also wouldn't let the unit power on (even though you could take the faceplate off and push in on the switch and it would work) so I did one simple thing that fixed it. I took the faceplate off and used a hair dryer and heated the plastic springs up real good then pushed down on the button and springs until they laid flat and back in their original position. The "springs" were then flat again (before they were sort of a little curved and warped looking). I put the faceplate back on and "voila"; it fired right up! I thought I'd put this last little tidbit in in case someone else ran across the same problem.
Before I start with a review, I want to note that I have 3ish years of amateur disassembly and reassembly prior to my five professional years as an electronics technician. I am will to bet 3 months pay checks that my dis & as was perfect. It was unbelievably smooth with no, "Uh, I have a few extra screws," or "I hope my prying did not crack/break anything," moments at the end.
Once I cleaned my 360 and as'd it, I fired it up. Worked perfectly - for about 3 hours. I ran Diablo 3 in that time. In about the 3rd hour, the white colors had a noticeably green tint, and the darker hues had a less noticeable green tint as well. Uh oh. I turned it off, and hoped that it would get better the next run. It did...for maybe an hour of Hulu streaming. All-in-all, I was able to eek out between 15 and 20 hours of Hulu, Netflix and D3 before it was finally lights out.
So why three stars instead of one if the product did not work?! Truthfully, everything else was great. The shipping was prompt without delay; the opening tool, the T8 L-wrench fit perfectly; the solvent razed the old thermal paste; the purifier seemed to finish up the job; the screws and washers fit adequately; the thermal paste was plenty. I have all of the positives with a failing end result. In my book, that's worth something. I will extend a thanks for a 60% well done, but I can't rate any higher than a 3.
Would I recommend this to a friend? Eh, possibly. It worked for others. I'm the exception, at least it seems, to the rule. If I did, I would extend a warning that the product took care of the dis & as easily with a failure to ultimately fix the problem.
Note: While I was getting those artifacts, I did Google for fixes. I tried clearing the cache, removing memory, used only an HDMI cable, swapped HDMI cables and tv ports, placed the 360 with no other electronics between it and the screen, and removed and replaced the HDD. I did not need to clean the disc, because I never ran a disc after the repair.
I finally gave in and ordered the product. It came within a few days. I waited until the weekend, got myself a 6 pack and started to get to work.
1. Timing: came within a few days, nicely packaged up. One issue here is they didn't screw the cleaner on tight enough so it dried up and leaked out. Hence the not 5 star review.
2. The opening tool. This thing worke pretty good but it started to bend with pressure. I reccomend using a screwdriver or something to the equivelent. It did work though. On the back of the xbox it worked amazing getting all corners up at the same time.
3. Unscrewing the bolts - the tools weren't the best but if you do not have a torque wrench set they should work just fine. Take your time though as you do not want to shred the screws. I would highly reccomend, if you have one nearby, going to a store and purchasing a torque wrench for $3-4. It'll go by a lot faster.
4. the Fix - pretty easy, good instructions, but I'd reccomend watching a few youtubes as well.
5. Thermal Paste - this was annoying taking off. You get two q-tips to help whipe off....this was not enough...I needed to go purchase a few more. If they could throw in a total of 6 you should be fine.
6. Applying Thermal Paste - it was pretty easy, If they could throw in something to spread it out that would be great. I used a credit card though.
Overall I'm satisfied as my Xbox now works like a charm. I was extremely sceptic but this actually worked!!! Aside from the cleaner being dried out, the tools not being the best (but def. managable) I'd say I'm 100% happy.
