Black screen and power off after 10 seconds? Check. Paste so crusty you could use it as Play-doh? Check. X-clamp mounting screw so tight its thread was completely stripped? Check.
A little TLC later and another console from the dumpster was rescued - woo-hoo! I was expecting the power delivery, APU or HDD to be buggered in some way, but no! Just poor assembly. It's always worth giving a faulty girl a look before you put it in the bin - big problems sometimes have small, easily rectifiable causes.
