    I had this happen to me about 10 years ago. I bought a huge lot of ipods for a couple grand. I get them in and realized they had all already been gone through and put back together with bad parts. They each had 3 or 4 unrelated problems which was just too much to be a coincidence. I ended up selling some of them but lost money for sure. Lesson learned.

    Give that ass hat negative feedback for being a shady salvage seller.

  • Kurt Stone

    @TronicsFix if you're going to fix high powered consoles, you have to be willing to do reballs. Was in that business for a long time

    • Kurt Stone
      Kurt Stone 11 days ago

      @TronicsFix it's one of the most common problems with any gaming console. You'll be able to salvage a lot more of them when you do

    • TronicsFix
      TronicsFix  17 days ago

      I've been fixing PS4's & Xbox One's for 5 years and don't do reballs.

    I would report that seller and do everything to get a refund due to that one that was basically an empty case with the ports glued in to make it look like it had the mother board in it... that is straight up fraud.

    • sup2069
      sup2069 17 days ago

      Dont think it will go far. Its listed as salvage/parts things will be missing. But to warn others of their shady practice, just drop a neg with a quick description. Or talk to seller for a refund w free shipping back. If they decline, neg feedback.

    on another computer, can you clone the working drive to the drives that need to be updated or those that need the OS reinstalled? to save time on updating each drives just to see if it works.. on one motherboard with a short somewhere, probably one of the surface mount capacitor is shorted, similar to some laptop motherboards.. Ive seen someone here in youtube traced the shorted cap with ease by applying enough voltage to overheat it and be replaced..

    Eazy I just subbed to your channel lol them xboxs I bet your pissed I would be . them boards aren't totaled I'd check the apu as as you no that the ps4 has same problem with the power up problems ps4 I clamp the apu with 3 washers at each tightening screws .the xboxis powering up problems can be the apu, clamp it like the old xboxis. Right ,the problem you have with updating can be caused from the WiFi board replace that with parts you have some times it can fix the problem then update it with your USB go for the latest firmware not the old firmware. I fix a lot of stuff tvs are my main money earner and i look about as you do I got a pallet full of smart tvs for a thousand pound i got 30 tvs I repaired 28 two need new screens .I totaled profited 2 thousand as all the tvs were from a factory .there was defects mostly cappaseters that have had isuse and a thew with no psu boards. If you need Eny help say the word. I might need your help one day lol . The old xboxis were more reliable than the ones that are out today. I fixed a xbox the other day only had black lines in the screen lol .I fixed this with the reset to factory settings have you tried to do this with the error code ones ??.the xbox was given to me from a friend who found this in a bin and only took less than 20mins to fix what a steal .Eny way you look good at what your doing and I enjoyed watching some one else fixing stuff for a change lol .soon as people know about people like us that can fix enything they come nocking and it's mad how the word get about so quick .we live in a sling away world and one day that will change and when it does they will be a lot of jobs for people like me and you .lol sorry about the sa and my spelling is poor .but like I say I can fix enything all self taught and also have created some mad inventions my self nearly done one project anti gravity. I'll explain if you want about this as you might just find this interesting . And if you are ill give you some more info on this .also can be used as a weapon faster than a bullet and it's done with magnets a coil and surges of pure power lol

    Number 15 made a very different sound when it turned off compared to the other xboxes with partial power.

    Conclusion: Not cost effective to repair a batch of faulty Xbox's for a living but as a hobby only for the self satisfaction feeling when you do find ONE or more that is repairable! Interesting to watch never the less

    • TronicsFix
      TronicsFix  24 days ago

      Depends on the batch and the price you get them with anything else.

    I'd imagine the ports being glued into place was a return scam. Someone had a xbox one x with issues and stoled a whole mainboard out of a new one then returned it. Very likely in today's times.

    The one with no motherboard was probably a return to Walmart or other retail store.

    Just watched your three videos back to back. I love how you deliver your videos. Easy to understand, informative and interesting. BUT you didn't tell us whether you put them on eBay and if so, what money did you make after your initial outlay. I'd like to know. :) Really enjoyed the videos.:)
