    • @TronicsFix hey could you say congratulations to me I got my Xbox series s yesterday and it’s delivering on Wednesday

    • you try to slide me one? fixed would be nice lol. I cant get it as im a little poor

    • Steve: Warns everybody about impersonators Me: Instantly scrolls through the full comments section in attempt to find one

    • Instruction confirm: Destroy scamers...roger that👿👿👿🔥🔥🔥

    • Do you ever resell the finished product?

  • “The perfect amount of thermal paste “, it never gets old. 😆

  • can you do ps3

  • 30:06 Can confirm, learned it the hard way.

  • It’s so weird seeing an actual Xbox one series x, it almost seems fake, I’m not even joking.

  • And that's why I won't buy a scalped system from facebook market or anywhere elese. You never know if you're going to get the broke one out of the box, and boom 600-900 bucks in the trash.

  • Can i have one of them😂

  • Damn how many people have broken consoles

  • Poor Xbox’s 😟 I’m glad your fixing them up

  • I don’t understand why it break so fast

  • Trained youtube professional 😂 💯⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

  • If they were broken Microsoft would have fixed them under warranty.

  • "Why wont my hdmi plug in?" *Pushes harder* ?????

  • 22:30 "the perfect amount of paste" *proceeds to put on triple the amount needed*

  • I can’t believe i understand all of this

  • Can I buy one please?

  • How they're all under warranty? Who would sell them as broken

    • They wouldn't. Something odd about this claim.

  • Bigger question why would you bother they just Xboxs

  • I’m not shopping on eBay. 1/5 Xbox’s worked 😂💀

  • Two xboxes had the same problem chip in the same location. Makes me think we might have a new RROD issue here.

  • Being a programmer all my life, I can relate to that rush of tracking down an issue and finally fixing it. This video was so satisfying to watch. Thank you.

  • Damm thats pretty impressive

  • I feel sorry about the ones you couldn’t fix.

  • How do I take the shell off my series s I wanna hydro dip

  • It's literally a electronic board cube...

  • @xbox

  • this is basically the launch of ps5 and xbox series x summed up

  • The first one is probably like fully working like i dont get why someone would just sell it

    • Someone probably returned it and lied that it was defective so they wouldn't have to pay a restock fee or to make the return easier.

  • Man wish I had Xbox Series S 💔😭 can't find one My Xbox one S 4 years old

    • Hey if you are in the uk amazon usually has them instock quite quickly, there is also a website called “stock informers”. They have a discord server that when you sign up they will notify when what you want is instock and you can buy it, but they usually sell out quick. Just follow their set up process

  • I really really wish I had gotten into electronics and computers when I was younger..

  • We need Right to Repair, those fixes were straight forward.

  • Thank you. Very interesting to watch. Can I ask what temperature you use for the solder unit (Hot air station)?

  • Fixed or not, it's still *broken* to me

  • Do you reckon the person took one apart, realised he was out of his/her depth and decided to sell them all lol.

  • These sandwiched muiltlayered boards make me sad, seems like now if you have a short... you're fooked.

  • Xbox one chip @ 15:24

  • I did not expect to hear “finger cheese in the cracks” when I got out of bed this morning.

  • number two were you have part ?

  • The perfect of thermal paste is the REAL solution to life.

  • How are there so many broken consoles already?

  • even broken series x is better than ps5

  • "The Seal has been broken here"

  • seeing faulty power supply issue with this console. I am glad mine is working. I wondering what Xbox has to say about the power supply issue

  • 10/10 for introducing the video, and then going right into it. No intro that goes on forever!

  • My Xbox sort of does the same as the first I just have yo click it a few times and it works just fine

  • Why would anyone sell a broken Xbox Series X instead of making a guarantee claim ???

  • uhmmm warranty?

  • Bummer it’s not turning on.. But deep inside he is happy lol

  • D A N K P O D S A E S T E T H I C

  • The whole Power supply without cover is darn scary.

  • How do broken Series X find their way onto Ebay this early? They would all be under warranty, right? Do folks from Microsoft repair centers sell them?

  • You are a god. Love your videos. They inspire me.

  • better hope these arent like the 360's where it tells MS if it's booted without the disk or hard drives connected lol. I'm hoping that at least since I had 2 get banned because of it

  • "Already has some finger cheese in the grooves" - As he uses his own hand to wipe it. LOL

  • “I’m not going to lie that one felt good” 😂😂

  • 22:04 inner peace.

  • Right to repair

  • People should also know that the power supplies don't just give you a shock when they're plugged in. They will also give you the same shock when they are unplugged. This is because a lot of power is store in their capacitors.

  • Meanwhile the majority of us can't even get our hands on one. 🙄

  • I don't understand how these consoles just came out and people have already waxxed their consoles. I have never had any consoles break or stop working. It's like these people toss the consoles around their rooms like a bouncey ball.

  • amazing video! specially fixing number 2!

  • This is why you need to support Louis Rossmann and right to repair. Parts as well as technicians should not be made unavailable.

  • It’s fascinating watching people fix things we don’t have a clue too

  • trained youtube professional I wass laughting by butt off😂😂

  • Wait can someone explain how did he find these broken consoles? Do they sell them broken?

  • Hey, you can try finding the short by "voltage/current injection" method, I never tried this before but I've seen some folks on youtube inject current into the board and use thermal cam to find the hotspo t.

  • Those are cool little machines …

  • Wonder if he could fix plainrock124’s xbox

  • Answer to your thumbnail- Well you should have think that before

  • Love your videos they are very chill, I like watching when I'm stoned and I'm just sitting there mesmerized lol

  • you the man

  • I do not have XBOX nor I am familiar with what he's doing, but I still watch as the best netflix series.

  • LoL 😂 he tells us to not mess with the power supply and 3 minutes later he touches a hot part on a LIVE power supply 🤔😂😂

    • I did not touch hot part on a live power supply.

  • They were released half year ago and already broken wow

  • Problem on fifth one is board with start button

  • If you have fried Xbox series x that's unfixable. Why not sell the SSD to people that have the series s or use the SSD in the series s

  • Where are you from because I have 4 broken controllers :(

  • "Finger cheese". Every industry has there neat colloquialisms

  • How do people even break them

  • Hey, please use the word ´deadly´ or ´can potentially kill you´, when warning about power supplies. The wording you use is not serious enough in my opinion. But thats just my 2 cents.

  • How do people manage to soil their consoles so quickly...

  • Is it just me or do the Xbox series x and ps5 not even seem like next gen consoles?

  • Is the sound out of sync or is it on my end?

  • The xbox's owners:🙃

  • on xbox 1 its just a xbox thing

  • Wie schwer es ist , an diese Konsolen zu kommen , ohne Wucher Preise zu zahlen . Und diese Idioten , zerstören sie .

  • How are people breaking these already

  • I have a question. These consoles are realesd recently and all of them should have warranty service. Why simply not send them to service center and take back all of them new? There it not works in this mode ?

  • where can you get the small components he uses to fix them

  • I fairly certain MS at Xbox watching this to iron out future issues!

  • It's almost like people don't know what a warranty is 🤣

  • You, sir, are an inspiration to all of us created with 0 dexterity.

  • Maybe I should buy a broken PS5 lmfao

  • I'll never understand why people ship the batteries

  • I have to say that I'm impressed at that number 2 consol fix. That stuff isn't easy to do.

  • 3 psu issues from 5 xbox. not good microsoft we are not even a year after release yet...

  • I was eating a cheesecake when he said "finger cheese" 🤢

  • "I have bought and broken 5 xbox seriers x. Can I fix them?"

  • I think you actually brought those from Sony.🤣🤣

  • Awesome vid just curious, how much did those broken consoles cost on ebay?
