  • I bought 18 broken Xboxes - Can I Fix Them and Make Money? These Xbox One S and X consoles came from a liquidation company. I'm hoping to be able to make money off this salvage lot but there are several problems with Xboxes that I've never been able to fix so wish me luck!

    About This Video: Xbox One S and X consoles are usually not too hard to fix. That being said there are several problems that they have that I've never been able to figure out how to fix. I took a chance and bought 18 broken Xboxes from a salvage liquidation company to see if I could fix them and it I could make money on them.

    How many do you think I can fix?

    Cautionary warning: NEVER, EVER spin a fan while it's connected to a motherboard. The DC motor is essentially an electric generator with no power supplied to it. The risk of static back feed through the fragile circuits on the board is too great to cut corners on such a simple step.

      There's something very soothing about watching someone take a chance at fixing such devices. Some like chill music, some like this kind of content... and chill music.

          That fan issue is common and many say it's normal. Mine does exactly the same thing. I'm not sure it did from new though it's in a different place. It's possible I have the same foam issue.

                      Write the Microsoft GUID to the new HDD by Cloning another drive. Keep in mind the GUID is specific to the size of the drive and is the only tool used to control drive tampering. If you clone a 2 TB HDD you need to manually assign a GUID to the new drive from a Microsoft drive of equal size. There is no authentication here that "merries" the drive to the system other than this as far as I know on the XBox 1 OG, and XBox 1 S console. If you clone a 500GB hdd and move the image to a 2TB hdd and expand the partition, you will need to get the GUID of a Microsoft 2TB hdd to match the new 2TB drive. Else upon factory reset the console will partition back to 500GB and leave off 1.5TB as unallocated. People with modded consoles get caught at Gamestop claiming to have a 2TB console for sale only to have Gamestop call them back with threats of fraud because of the voided warranty from tampering. When Gamestop factory resets the console it reverts back to the size registered by the GUID...you can survive a factory reset with the proper GUID. Ohhh you're talking about the BRD drive...never mind...I was listening not watching, lol.

                                                          I think these fixed consoles eventually end up in south, and southeast asia, and africa sadly.

I wanted to say that it's my first time visiting your channel and so far I'm 23 minutes in enjoying the video. The ONE thing I would DEFINATELY advise you to not do on future videos is continously ask " do you think this is going to work " I swear, 5 out of 26 minutes it's just that. You can not only shorten your video to provide more viewers but also help skip to the essentials. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD STOP ADDING LITTLE FILLERS AND STICK TO THE DETAILS THAT MATTER I HAD TO STOP WATCHING JUST TO WRITE THIS!
