I bought 18 broken Xboxes - Can I Fix Them and Make Money?

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.

  • 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.

  • Hello! 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!

  • Kinda sucks that there is no schematics but it makes sense. Why would they release schematics for a console that works reliably 99% of the time when they could keep them and maybe even make more money from them buying another console.

  • if i get error 100, what could be the problem? i change the hdd because the original is damaged, then i used a hdd of 1tb, i formated with a script for Windows that works to fix a xbox one x with similar problem in the hdd, in this case is a xbox one s, when the offline update finish, the xbox restart and shows error 100, right now im downloading OSU1 again from Microsoft i solved it, the problem was that the new hdd don't get all partitions with format, then i had to erease all partitions and try to format again with the script for Windows and then i get the five partitions and works very well
