And a console for kazper   ... had a really bad fan mod - giving it a 0001 error code.  Corrected that.  And had to correct a really bad Flash scenario on the dvd drive

Not related to the above topic just wanted to shell out some street cred to one of the most engaged and contributors on the scene. He helps countless people all over. Thanks for all your hard work on all those demonic falcon mobos. Your knowledge is helpful and needed. Thanks Tommy from North Carolina

Just got my unit back from Will, and he did some extraordinary work on it.

The great thing about Will is that he can do things many others will not. If you're looking for someone that can do hardware work outside of just a simple Reball/Reflow/Xclamp, Will can most likely do it. Broken ports, caps, IC's,  etc, he seems MORE than capable of handling it.

I'm definitely sending more units his way should I ever need work done on a unit again.

Thanks,

-NHN!

Need Help & Tdezel  ... I appreciate the great comments.  Those two are great guys.  And patient.

This is pesky work sometimes and can give you an enormous headache, but I strive to do top notch work for everyone.

I am constantly learning and improving methods.  But I think I have some pretty decent skills to offer  ... and the right tools are critical.

Alot of thanks go out to all those who have built my knowledge base.

Just wanted to let anyone know that would be worried if their consoles can't be fixed... don't be!  I sent two to him that were in REALLY bad shape from previous repair attempts.  Although he couldn't get them fixed, he kept me informed EVERY step of the way, sent pictures of all the attempted repairs, didn't charge me a dime for the work he performed (I will pay for his time the best I can anyway), and most importantly kept communicating everything he found and asked how I wanted to proceed.  VERY professional and trustworthy guy!  I hope I never see a RRod again, but if I do, I will not look elsewhere for someone to repair it.

Couple weeks ago a project was completed for KnucklesX2

He or someone else had cause damaged to his system.

Had to replace the Sata connector on the motherboard.

Then do a bundle of surface mount recovery work on the Logic board of his dvd drive.  Expose fresh trace, install new smd resistors and replace the Voltage Reg.  Then, the drive key was recovered.

A somewhat, fresh drive was spoofed over to work with his Jasper console.

What are your prices for repairing a falcon jtag with e74? Its kinda weird. At first it was showing 3 red rings, but now it shows lower right ring and shows e74. I have a rework station, but I don't have a preheater and have never reflown a console yet, and don't want to jack this one up. Also, I'd much rather have it reballed with leaded balls to prevent further issues with it. Thanks.

Repair done for tdude51

Not a Gpu reball this time

tdude51 was working on his dvd drive.  He had an unfortunate static discharge.  Sort of killed his BenQ.

He sent it to me.  I had to replace 3 smd components.  This brought it back to life.

In addition got his drive key for him.

Will did a great job! Brought 2 Jtags back from the dead. Kept in constant contact, keeping me updated every step of the way. Went above and beyond and cleaned up a bunch of sloppiness from previous "fixes". Great guy and willing to work with you. I'd definitely go back if I need any more repairs. Just hope I don't need to.

Some minor repair work done for:

Joker2323  - some console maintenance and extra fan install

KnucklesX2 - some dvd drive repair




Title: Gpu Reball Service & Other Rrod Repair
Post by: joker2323 on April 04, 2013, 09:02:26 AM

This may be kind of long, so for those who want the short version - wilgo45 fixed my graphics glitches and did some preventive maintenance, I'm very happy with the results and glad I went with him for the repair.

Now the long version...

I bought a used Xbox on eBay to play games with my son over system link.  From the description of the graphical glitches in the auction, I thought a standard "x clamp mod" would fix it, so I bid on it and won it.  After I received the Xbox and did more research into potential fixes, it looked like it would need more than some bolts and washers.

I looked around locally and found a few people who advertised Xbox repair services.  I wasn't able to locate any reviews of their service, though.  One of the places had a lot of bad reviews on eBay for their sales, so I decided against them for sure.    The thought of sending the Xbox away instead of staying local made me kind of nervous, but I found this thread here for wilgo45's service.  Based on his honesty when things didn't go 100% as expected, and the reviews from people who used his service, I decided to go with him for the repair and began communicating with him through the forums' messaging.  Additionally. from the reviews people left, it was obvious that he was used to working on Xboxes that had been worked on previously.  Some repair places that I looked up online wouldn't even touch an Xbox that had been opened.  Since I bought this one used, I wasn't sure what had been done to it already, but I knew it had been opened before I bought it, and I had opened it once or twice myself.

I sent the Xbox to him through Regional Rate Priority Mail, which I had never heard of until he suggested it.  This actually saved me quite a bit on shipping, so bonus points to wilgo45 for that.

When he examined the Xbox, he found that the problem wasn't as bad as first thought, and he was able to get it running glitch free.  Big bonus points for honesty here.  I'm sure there are some people out there who would have told me that they had done a big fix involving hours of labor and charged me an arm and a leg, and seriously, I would never have known the difference.  He also suggested some options for preventive maintenance and offered some additional services.  We agreed on which options I wanted done, and he finished up and sent the Xbox back right away.  Heck, this Xbox will probably last longer that the one I bought brand new.   laugh.gif

I've had it back for a couple of days now and can't believe the difference.  I've gone from not being able to play more than 5 minutes of Metro 2033 to being able to play for over an hour with zero issues.  I took it apart to flash the drive back to stock, do a system update, then flashed it back (but to a newer FW this time).  I took a look at some the work he did while I was in there, and everything is very sharp and professional looking.

If you're reading this thread and on the fence about contacting him for a fix, I'd recommend wilgo45 without hesitation.  I know I'm not a common visitor to the forums, but if my review isn't enough, there are several pages before this one.  He was quick, communicated regularly during the process, and was honest about the work that needed to be done.  What more could you ask for?

Failed on a repair for NoMention

Sent me a Xenon with a 0110 error.  I surmised dead edram in Gpu.

Replaced the Gpu .... RROD still persisted.  Made other attempts.  They did not clear the RROD.

Cpu chip probably needs reballed too.  But end of the story is I failed this customer.

Reballed the Hana chip to restore video

Resoldered an LED on the ROL board

And reworked the jtag setup.  Both hardware and Nand flash routine.  And several Xbox Scene members contributed to ideas in repair.


... on a side note.  Going back to NoMention's console.  Trying to see if the repair can be achieved with more work

He had a Xenon jtag with no Audio or Video.  But the console would boot up.  No rrod

               Wilgo45 did a repair on an E74 Xbox 360. Fired it up and tested it out and working fine! Wilgo45 did a very good job at keeping communication and keeping me up to date on whats going on. He also did a run down to check other parts of the system to let me know things that i should be aware of like my dvd drive making noise or checking the laser for dust when he clearly didn't have to. I have no doubt that if any of my other 360s fail he is the guy I will be sending them to if he is still repairing when that happens!

All around great service! thanks wilgo45.

               Failed on a repair for dopesun

This was either the 3rd or 4th reball I had done for him.  Different consoles.

He sent me videos demonstrating some power glitches.  Figure it might be some Power Regs or other transistors.  When the consoles arrives to me - No glitches.

After looking over the motherboard, found missing SMT and curve to the Mobo and Gpu.
Setup a mild heat treatment to straighten out the board - using just underside heating.

After that, the console displayed an E74.  So, started in on a reball.  Reball did not correct.  Did the process again  .... still no.

Upon removing the original Gpu a third time; the power core started a collapse on the bottom chip layer.

So  .... an appropriate Gpu replacement was bought and installed.  Console still came back with RROD.  Pulled and reballed the replacement Gpu .... Still RROD after that.

Moral of the story ?  ... there is none

               I want to add myself as a satisfied customer and reiterate comments made by others. Wilgo repaired my xenon for me at a reasonable price. I needed a reball for a video problem and came to him with the issue. The repair was quick, and I was informed the entire time.
He took the time to find out exactly what was going on and solved the problem, along with cleaning up some of my rushed soldering.
Thanks again, updated to the latest dash using j-runner, and all is well.

Shipping was reasonable as well.

Hello

Offering Reball or Chip Re-pinning to those who need it.

Can do a Reball to the various Chips on the Phat 360: GPU, CPU, HANA, Southbridge and RAM.  Using Leaded spheres.

As for the Slim: if the stencils carry over for the same design - then we are good to go.

Common chips that need Reballing are usually the GPU and sometimes the Southbridge

So - if you are interested or curious please send me a personal message or reply post.  I usually come to this message board site daily.  Let me know in detail the problem your 360 is experiencing.

Can handle a few other RROD issues like the 0001 and 0002.  Also can replace certain parts of the DVD drive.

360 consoles will most likely have to be mailed to me.  I live near Des Moines in the state of Iowa.  Usually I can send a bubble wrapped 360 thru Postal Priority for 10.95

So - contact me for questions or to get the process started.

United States Postal has just raised their rates

Best way to ship 360s for the price and the speed.

Entire console fits in the box, even with bubble wrap

ShadowGuy will have to make some adjustment to his system on his end.  Looks like the Nand/Cpu need to be acclimated to the new amount of available ram

A way to cut down the expense of shipping.

Only applies to those who are comfortable with opening and taking apart their 360.

For repairs dealing with reballing, reflowing or component replacement on the motherboard  - One only has to send the motherboard.

I have all the side devices for checking to see if repair is complete.  So this can greatly cut down the weight that is being shipped.

The entire 360 without hard drive and cords weighs just under 8 pounds.  The 360 motherboard itself just weighs under 1 pound.  When it comes to Parcel shipping or UPS Ground - weight is everything

1 pound from Boston to Iowa is $5.50 in the Postal system

Or 3 or 4 - 360 motherboards could be sent by Medium Flat Rate Priority for 11.35

If you decide on just shipping the motherboard; you're going to need to protect it.  Bubble wrap  ....  ship it within its stock cage ...  just something.  Package handlers aren't always careful

If you have questions - just pm me

Will did a GPU reflow for me on my JTAG'ed Xenon.

The system works great now.

I also wanted to say that Will kept in constant contact (moreso than anyone else I've ever done business with online) and is very friendly!

He even did a lot of extra work that I didn't pay for and offered me freebies when he definitely did not have to!

Out of all the people I was considering for for the job, I'm glad I chose him and won't think twice about him if I ever need work done again.

Wish I could buy the guy a beer!

Completed a repair for Jcb890.  It was a 0002 - now good.  Guess that was old news

Jcb890 has another that is 0110 - and its been more challenging than usual.

Will be tackling an E76 for dopesun  - here any day now.  Its on route


Some updates on shipping options.  If you buy postage online from the Usps, thru the Click N Ship  ... You can get two day Priority shipping on a Medium Flat Rate box for 10.85  ... And it will include Tracking for free

Definitely a way to save a few dollars with shipping

So - does anyone have any questions ?

The E76 for dopesun is now repaired

I replaced his ICS ethernet controller chip.  Process went very smooth

dopesun has two other consoles for me to check out.  Haven't checked their error codes yet, but will soon.  Then I will later mention the progress of those

Title: Gpu Reball Service & Other Rrod Repair
Post by: wilgo45 on April 24, 2012, 03:51:09 AM

dopesun had sent me three consoles

one with a E76  ... one with a E74  ... and one with a E79

The E76 fixed

The E74 fixed

The E79 -  has a deep scratch running parallel to the Nand chip.  Nailing several traces.  Probably nothing I can do there

A bump and some info

Going to provide some info - on a negative slant.  But just being truthful; providing some disclosure

Looks like I might have failed two Xbox Scene members in repairs.  I don't remember their screen names right off hand.  Both named Jake - funny enough.  Jake B and Jake T

With Jake B - he sent me two consoles.  Only one has been repaired so far.

With Jake T - still trying but it doesn't look good

These should have been textbook reball repairs.  But something didn't pan out.  There could have been prior repair attempts from other people; that might have affected the chances of completion.  Uncertain why there is a failure

Some Positive Work Results

Did a Reball on a Gpu chip for a Laptop.  The chip was an AMD Radeon.   The laptop - a Toshiba L505D. And this job was for an Xbox-Scene member.

that person - mikeyngo

Going to see if they might leave some comments about this job; here in this topic

They did final assembly  ... And said that its working great now

Post by: mikeyngo on May 12, 2012, 11:10:36 AM

Unbelievable work done by WilGot45.  Had a Toshiba L505D Laptop with a GPU issue, very similar to the XBOX360 RROD.  WilGot45 never hesitated about my special request, actually he was more excited to get it fix than I am.  Communication was kept very constant, actually too constant, he was kinda annoying.. lol Jk jk.  Once he special ordered the stencil for my application, he took the time to masked everything off and started the reball.  

The item was done the next day when he received the stencil and mailed out.  I finally had the chance to assemble my laptop together and its working perfectly.  Work was done very professionally.

Thank you WilGot45.  I finally found a person I can really trust to get reball dones on xbox360s and also special requests.

Wilgo fixed my XeDK. He not only reballed both chips, but did much more than asked for like fixing soldering points and other things as well. He is a great repairs man! He got everything working and is great on keeping in touch! I HIGHLY recommend him! He does it a great price too!

Thanks so much Wilgo! You're the man! I will definitely ask go to you for more repairs in the future!

Post by: wilgo45 on June 04, 2012, 11:20:09 PM

I see - ISkate0I - has already posted comments.  Which was very cool of him

I was going to comment on the repair work done to his system.

Both his Gpu and Cpu had to be lifted and reballed.  They got distorted by the use of a hardware store heatgun.  The chips luckily didn't sustain damage, but the pins got way distorted.  - That part was corrected

He had also lost some ceramic capacitors from the bottom side of the board.  Sort of underneath the Southbridge chip.  Five caps in all.  And in three locations he had lost some connection pads to the board routes.  At two spots the connection pads were intact, so I was able to replace those surface mount caps.

Heatgun might have been responsible for the lost of those Caps too.  Heatguns don't do you any favors Ladies and Gentlemen.  Just say no

At one point his ejection button for the dvd drive had been replaced.  This being the small button assembly that is soldered to the motherboard.  The solder joints were real ugly.  Cold soldered and clunky.  Got those straightened out.

25 watt soldering irons won't cut with the 360.  Irons got to be hotter than that.  Plus there are better, special tips

Lastly - I replaced his center LED on his Ring of Lights board.  The one that was on there was completely blown.  It's just me, but I like seeing that center light on when you power up.

Did lots of cleaning to the main board, fans and dvd drive.

               Just recently, I failed on a repair for an Xbox Scene member:

That person is stoopidmnkey

He had a 0102 error to his console.  A basic text book reball should have corrected things.

Ended up - just ruined.  For the most part, I blame my IR machine.  Chinese hunk of crap

So at this time, I am suspending my work on bga chip repairs.  Got to get this situation squared away

His household electronics took a knock from a lightning strike.

His 360 console went down in an E76 with that strike

I replaced his internet controller chip.  Now he's back to a normal working console.

Also checked his connection to the Internet and Xbox Live  .... all good there after repair

And - applied fresh compound to his main chip dies

... And - in the near future, I might look at various components from a TV of his.  That too got damaged in the lightning strike

hey

I didn't use that machine for the E76 repair.  Used other soldering tools for that.  The ICS chip is not a bga style

I re-used my ACHI IR for another repair just recently and it turned out fine.  But the main problem is the inconsistency of the machine.

I'm going to operate on my upper heater arm tonight.  Poke around in there... see if I can make some improvements.

I might have to switch out the IR ceramic for another built by the Germans.  The Chinese are known for making poor quality IR plates.

If I had to do it all over again, I would buy another, better machine.  There's still a chance I may send this thing back to the supplier.

Got to work on my first 360 Slim a couple of weeks ago

It was really cool to tinker around with that one.  All I usually get are the various types of Phats.  However, I've never needed to work on a Jasper yet - for repair

Quite a thing to open a Slim.  Takes a little longer than a Phat, but navigated just fine.

This Slim would neither eject tray nor read discs.  Lite On drive ... DG-16D4S  So I treated the drive belt and put in a replacement optic.  It original was flat dead.  Style was a HOP 15X - G2R2

Things work great now
