Xbox W. Smartxx3 Starts Frag-ing After 15 Month
« on: January 09, 2009, 06:48:00 AM »

Ok, as most of the time, if you start talking about a problem, it vanishes.
I removed all the tin from the points, and resoldered them again properly, while letting the iron stay at each point for maybe a second, so the tin gets drawn into the board. That fixed it, the chip lights up and XBMC boots.

I'm still interested why the chips failed in the first place... has anyone experienced something like this before?
