    my friend has a 360 and it recently RRODed. i'm thinking of buying it (for 5 euros it should be possible), and maybe fixing it. but what are the odds of me fixing it? is there any chance I can send it back to Microsoft? it's out of the guaranteeperiod, and I think it's at least 4 years old atm.

    how much will it cost me if i change the parts and all?

    Sending it to MS will cost you €100 iirc.

    Chances of fixing it is quite high.
    Reflow will do the job but it won't last long.

    It's best to do an reball (expensive but will last longer)
    Or just get a Jasper or better 360.

    Some say that some bolts and washers will fix the RRoD (after reflowing)

    RRoDs are prone to break again.

    He was asking for the disassembled pieces, how much would they be worth.

    Oh sorry read it wrong...


    You can sell the DVD drive for ~20
    The heatsinks for 10 each
    Casing for a couple of tenners (you can mod it and jack up the price)
    You can sell the PSU for 20 or 30.
