So recently got home from work turned on the Xbox and got a hardware failure.

Any advice on fixing this? I mean if I have to buy a new one I am still trying to fix it. Plus it is an Xbox Elite so I rather not shell out money that I don't need to, especially since I need to save to move out.

Smokey I know you have experience with the Xbox ring so let me know if you can help out or not.

Nah it is a Quarter Ring of Death lol. It isn't a full ring.

Like I said it is a hardware failure. The Scaler Chip disconnected from the motherboard I believe but I guess it is so small that it is hard to re-solder.

How old is your Xbox? If it's just under 3 years old and not been tampered with you should be entitled to a free repair from M$.

If I remember what my cousins told me correctly, it's almost never a full ring. The varying amounts of segments mean a different type or severity of failure.

But, this is all if I remember what they said correctly.

they have the e74... and the HANA chip i believe needs to be re balled / re soldered to the board.. and yes its a bitch and a half to do... best to sell the HDD from the old one and get a new one.. unless MS will repair it for u...

the RROD (3 lights) just requires u to remove the heatsinksand the X-Clamp and apply new thermal paste to them... cause MS used some cheap ass paste on them from the start..

u can do the towel trick and get it back running for a day or so... but it will not fix it completely... i done it to mine and it ran for about 2 days then back to e74...

I'm here way too much!
ps3 does have issues with their older consoles, ever heard of YLoD or Redscreen? it's rare though and i've never gotten one.
