How to repair your RROD 360 (0102, 0022, 0110 code, E74, and if your X360 gets the green lights but no video):

EDIT: This fix includes a no video but you get audio, and no rrod fix.

How this happens is because they use garbage solder underneath of the GPU, and they crack over time of it turning on and off. The result of the RROD is when it is cracked, and a part of the GPU is not talking to the motherboard.

I have tried several methods to fix the Xbox 360 RROD, and I will post how each one is going.

I tried the X-Clamp fix by itself, no good.

I have tried overheating the GPU of the xbox 360 one time, letting it cool, then putting on the X clamp fix. This works for 2 days. It locked up in the middle of playing a movie, turned it back on, RROD.

I just tried overheating it 15 times in a row, as in, as soon as it overheats, let it blink 5 times, unplug, plug back in, turn back on immediately. Lets see if it lasts longer than 2 days.

I have NOT tried baking it in an oven while covering up the caps with cloth and aluminum foil.

I also have not tried a variation of this: http://xbox-experts.com/tutorial/team-hybrids-ultimate-xclamp-fix-released/ but that is my next step.

I plan on doing basically the same thing but one major difference. I'm not buying their stupid clamp thing. I'm going to get me some of the sticker foam stuff, or a soft foam that's about 5mm thick or so, and stick that under the motherboard then bolt it tight and see if that fixes the RROD. If so I will most certainly be updating this thread. I'm going to try that next if I get the RROD again.

EDIT: I got the RROD again. I baked it for it to work again, then what I did is this. I did a poor man's hybrid mod. I kinda modified the x clamp completely. I flattened out the X clamp itself, then I cut the ends so that it can be split and drilled accordingly, the bolts that is. Then I wrapped the X Clamp with electrical tape, so that nothing shorts the board. Then, I wrapped the center with electrical tape, creating a nice rigid bump, to put a lot of pressure on the motherboard. The result: A flat motherboard.

I'm testing it now to see if it works or not.

EDIT2: It works flawless. Played through an entire dvd with no lockups, no RROD upon a power cycle. Bring on Mushi!

EDIT3: Just fixed another 360, same fix, boots just fine, also a 0022 error. I shall now post pics of my mod.

First off, for my mod, you need to cut the steel casing of the 360. You'll see on the bottom of the casing, where the x's are where the clamps sat in, and there is an indented border. You need to whack out a hole around the indented border. Then you need to take off the heatsink completely off of the GPU, and turn on the 360, with video cables plugged in. Leave it on until you see 2 red lights blink 5 times, then unplug the 360. This will remelt the solder joints back into place.



This first pic is what I did to the x clamp, the left being before, the right being after. I just took 2 sets of pliers, and bent the edges back and forth until they snapped off.



You then wrap the cut bracket with electrical tape, with no metal exposed.



You then wrap the center with electrical tape. I wrapped it 8 times in one direction, and then 5 times in the opposite direction.





This is how it looks like when you bolt it in the X360. I used #10, 1/2 inch bolts that you can find at walmart. You can use washers if you like, I never do. I just bolt it down until I see the heatsink on the top start to bend down, but the edge not touch the board itself. If it touches, you will get a 0020 RROD, its shorting out the board. Just unbolt it a bit until it goes away.

And, that's it! Sit your 360 into your case, plug in the fans, turn it on, and enjoy the nice pretty green lights go around the 360.

I was just playing Dead Rising a second ago and my 360 froze. Now, this isn't the first time my 360 has frozen, but this time it was different.

There was a red and black checkerboard pattern that went across the screen as Isabella was going to kick Frank when you fight her on her motorcycle. Is this bad? What do I expect to happen? I read on a forum that you take the hard drive off, turn the 360 on, turn off, put hard drive back on, and continue. Should I do this?




FUCK

I don't understand. My 360 is working now. What happened?

Sorry for the double post, but my 360 has done the checkerboard thing several more times, and now my screen went completely green, and it froze again. What do I do? Should I send it?

Your GPU is slowly but surely failing. I'd wait until it gets the E74, then send it in.

Once I am able to get good pics of my 360, I will be able to write the guide to fix the RROD. But, if its under warranty still, then I'd wait to send it back to Microsoft.

I'm encountering an unusual error with my 360. When I boot it up, it goes the the title screen with the Xbox 360 logo on it, and when the little cinematic finishes playing, the screen goes black, and then the signal to the TV gets cut off, as if I turned off the XBox. And then it plays the title screen cinematic again. And I won't stop blanking then replaying it. I can't even make it to the dashboard.

Oh well. I already sent it in and I got an email saying it's on its way back. However, the status hasn't changed from Billing Information Received since I got the email.

Its on its way to a RROD. I'd say leave it do it until you get it, then call Microsoft. Remove the hard drive so the resets doesn't corrupt your data.

My DS Lite works perfectly fine. until I use the touchscreen. Just touching it makes the DS insta-freeze and the brightness of both screens goes up beyond maximum.
It started messing up a few months ago with the touchscreen getting progressively less responsive until it finally crashed. Help?

I'd contact Nintendo, they have the best customer service, ever.

Sounds like to me its either a bad screen, or a bad motherboard, as its not reading the touching correctly. My guess is a bad screen.

I wast told to dig up this thread and to post in it, forgive me for that.

The USB ports on my Wii do not read anything. I've tried to plug RB1 drums/mic into the ports directly and that doesn't work. Then, I try to plug in through the adapter and nothing happens again. Mucho love if you can help me fix it. <3

so a while ago I had my friend's 360. I played rock band one night and everything worked just fine then the next day I couldn't get the console to turn on. I tried a remote turn on with a controller and pressing the button and it just wouldn't start.

At first i thought it was the power supply or something but I took my console (which i had just got the day before) and hooked it up using his cables and everything and it started just fine.


He is still out of town until next moth and doesn't remember if he has a warranty or not so. . . Is this a common problem/have you seen this happen before and know how to fix it?

Have you tried updating the wii? And also, its always in standby. Unplug the power from the back of the wii, plug it back on, turn it on and see if it acts the same. If so then the usb controller is borked, and it needs to be warranty repaired.

Does his 360 still act like this when you turn it on? Sounds like the thing just needed unplugged and plugged back in. Have you tried your power supply on his 360? Different models have different ratings, so if yours uses less power, then it could be ok for you but not for his.

Uhh no his 360 still doesn't turn on at all. I thought it may have been a problem with the switch behind the big button but I couldn't turn it on with the controller so it must have been something else.

This was something like 6 months ago. He's been out of town and is coming home next month.

His 360 was a 20gb from 2007 and i bought a 60gb last December so if anything I would have though mine would need more power which is why I didn't try using my power supply.

He was home for a week last month and he tried plugging everything back up with all his cables and everything but it wouldn't turn on but this time i brought my x-box up to his place and mine worked perfectly using his cables again.

I just used this guide to fix up a 17" LCD Monitor that was given to me.
