  • I bought 18 broken Xboxes - Can I Fix Them and Make Money? These Xbox One S and X consoles came from a liquidation company. I'm hoping to be able to make money off this salvage lot but there are several problems with Xboxes that I've never been able to fix so wish me luck!

    About This Video: Xbox One S and X consoles are usually not too hard to fix. That being said there are several problems that they have that I've never been able to figure out how to fix. I took a chance and bought 18 broken Xboxes from a salvage liquidation company to see if I could fix them and it I could make money on them.

    some problems with "power on then power off" issue can be fixed by blowing hot air on the heat sink with hair dryer for about 5 minutes. dont ask me how that works, it just does. ( but not always)

      This is the same concept as chucking a circuit board into the oven to re-flow the soldering on dodgy boards, as the solder may be cracked on a component and the heat helps it melt and fix the crack.
