Hi.

I have a 360 Slim (250GB) and years ago it got hit with RRoD out of nowhere and since then I never used it, but I'd like to use it to play 360 Arcade games delisted I bought so I was hoping someone may be able to help?

I read the power brick may fix the issue? I don't know if that's true.

Thanks.

might not be worth fixing. a reflow or reball requires a bga station (though a heat gun may be able to do it as well, but a proper one requires one of these). the stations usually cost several hundred dollars to a grand, so you'd most likely have to send it to someone. for the price it costs to do either, it may be better to buy a new system in case that is indeed the problem. 360s are pretty cheat nowadays, so I would do that if I were you.

Depending on where you are I'd just buy a new one tbh. Where I am at xbox360 slims go for around 40 euros and Xbox 360 slim PSU for 15 euros. It could be as easy as getting a new PSU if it's not you're down 15e. 100e for a reball as someone suggested is absurd in my opinion, it's just not worth it.
