Heavily damaged Xbox One - broken connector on Front Board.
Trying to nurse back to health a heavily damage Xbox One. I have some success but will not power up.
There is broken connector on the Front Board that connects from the wifi board to front board. I tried to solder the connector back on with bad results. How does this connector effect the workings the buttons on front panel? Does it mean that controls will not work?
I am also going to remove and check under the heat sink for damage as it is damaged as well. Though there is no signs of damage to motherboard on either side.
Still no real answer on front board connection. I did manage to take the heat sink off to see if there was any damage underneath. Thankfully nothing I could see … even with a magnifying glass. I did manage to ‘hammer’ out the heat sink using a strip of thick plastic. LIGHTLY tapping with the hammer.
I managed to get it relatively flat and reinstalled with fresh heat sink compound. Only the word on what function the connector has and possible work around before I can test once again.
