Trying to FIX a Faulty Xbox One purchased on eBay

Hi, this 'trying to fix' video shows me attempting to fix a faulty Xbox One purchased on eBay with the fault listed as not connecting to WiFi. Remember that this is just for entertainment and I am not an expert in these repairs. The processes in the video may not be the best way, the correct way or the safest way to fix these things. I do love fault finding and trying to fix broken things so I hope that comes across in this 'Trying to FIX' series. Many thanks Vince.

Budget Home Network PT2 - CAT5e Drops, Wall Outlets, Wall Board Install (TV, Ethernet, Telephone)

In this video I assemble and install the low-voltage data and TV cables in a family members new house. This is the second part of the build that follows on from the wall board assembly video. This is the backbone of the house for networking and television distribution - a new whole home installation project on a tight budget. In this second and final part I mount the pre-assembled wall board in the cupboard and terminate the incoming telephone line, TV antenna and CAT5e cable from the ubiquiti networks nanobeam M5 wireless receiver. Throughout this process I try to locate everything for optimal cable runs and the prevention of interference where possible. A family member recently purchased a new house. As the house is empty, being rewired and decorated now is the perfect time to install any low voltage systems throughout all the rooms. I chose to fit an (admittedly, overkill) home network throughout the house. Connectivity to this extent isn't required right now, but it very well may well be needed in the near future. Each room gets a twin RJ45 Ethernet outlet point for high speed (Gigabit Capable) LAN networking and a single Ubiquiti Unifi UAP-AC-LR wireless AC access point is installed on the ceiling upstaris to provide whole house WiFi coverage in both the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands. The house doesn't have a broadband connection of its own, instead it connects to the internet via a remote building where all routing and DHCP is handled on a pfsense firewall system. This means that minimal equipment is required in the new house installation to distribute network connectivity! Literally just an ethernet switch and two PoE Injectors make up the networking part of this wall board!. The buildings are linked together using a Point-To-Point 5Ghz wireless link by a pair of Ubiquiti Nanobeam NBE-M5-16 AirMAX dishes that deliver a rock-solid 95Mbps connection both ways between the buildings. I also take the opportunity to install outlets for terrestrial/Freeview television (standard TV antenna coax connections). All connections and cabling meet in a small cupboard central to the house where all required networking equipment and TV distribution amplifiers have been located (on the board). Power to everything in the cupboard is supplied from a pair of double mains sockets mounted to the board, fed from a fused connection unit located in the electrical cupboard. I chose to use a wooden board and mount the equipment onto it in the back of a cupboard as there isn't a lot really required. This setup couldn't justify the use of a rack cabinet as it would have been impossible to find a place to locate it and would never have fully populated it. The board also gave the added bonus of being able to clip all over and around it for great cable management. This video is part 2 of a 2-part series. I chose to split the process up instead of having an excessively long individual video that may prove harder for some viewers to get through. However this second part is shorter than expected as some footage was corrupted and lost. Luckily I took some pictures of the process so not all has been lost.

Don't panic!... Is your "laptop shutting off by itself" or "slowing down" during use"? #8

(HD) (CC) PLEASE READ! This "simple fix" video is intended especially for STUDENTS who are in a pinch and have very few tools or resources nearby, including COMPRESSED AIR! This video shows how to revive almost any laptop that keeps turning itself off, or shuts off while it's being used due to an "overheating condition", without any special tools or taking anything apart. The fix shown in this video deals with a VERY common problem that so many laptops will have. The common cause of "overheating" is often a hidden dust build-up on the fan, heat sink, and/or internal parts! IMPORTANT NOTE! There is always a possibility that the laptop fan could become "jammed-up" with the dust that is blown back from the processor heat sink while doing this cleaning procedure, so be warned! The odds are very slight, but they ARE there! If this situation occurs, I would (and have in the past) used a vacuum hose from something like a shop vac, or something similar to get the dust off the fan allowing it to spin free. Myself, I would power off the laptop, place the vacuum suction near the "fan inlet" vent to achieve this. The vacuum will dislodge the dust, and the fan will start to spin. DO NOT let the fan spin up at a fast rate of speed as damage to the fan could occur. I have cleaned many laptops, and by using the procedure described here and in this video, I have always had success. I have never had to take a laptop apart because of a dust build-up. BTW, ANY laptop (AND PC) that moves air "into and out of itself" with a fan, will be susceptible to a dust build-up, eventually leading to an overheating condition. Symptoms of laptop over-heating may include (but are not limited to) • A very noisy or racing cooling fan with little air coming out from the laptop. • If any air is coming out from the laptop, it is quite hot! (It should only be warm) • No cooling fan sound, because the fan is stuck from dust build-up. • The bottom of the laptop near the fan area getting very hot. • Laptop performance slowing down, or the laptop is shutting off completely because the laptop is trying to protect itself from damage caused by an excessive heat build-up. note;- This video shows a "general method of cleaning" that "I would use" if tools/equipment are not available. It would be helpful to check the owner/user's manual of YOUR device to get clarification on the cleaning procedure of your laptop vents. Every laptop has a different configuration. PLEASE NOTE. There are times when a laptop will turn off because of a virus or malware, hardware or software problems/conflicts as well. If you believe your Windows laptop is "not" overheating, I would download and run (from microsoft.com/downloads) the "Microsoft malicious software removal tool"(There is a NEW updated one every week.). A FULL scan MUST be done in my opinion. This will take hours, but it is well worth it. If the tool does find problems, make absolutely sure YOU ARE running an antivirus program on your laptop. Many new laptops come with "trial versions" that expire leaving the unsuspecting user vulnerable! Reboot the laptop afterwards, run "Windows update" and install all recommended updates. Reboot the laptop again, then try it afterwards.

How to recover data from a hard drive (stuck heads: buzzing, clicking, etc)

Does your hard drive make a buzzing noise when you turn it on? Or does it make clicking noises or not spin up? Well, in this video I will show you how to fix this fairly common problem which is caused by the drive's heads getting stuck on the platters. You'll definitely need this before starting: http://amzn.to/2istwyH In some cases, data recovery software may have to be used. Here is a good one to check out: Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery - Professional http://bit.do/stellarphoenix Want to be extra safe? You can build a clean air enclosure. Here's a video all about that: www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPEa0Wc9iUc

In this video I repair a faulty Xbox 360 E console with a bad cooling fan. This caused the console to automatically shut itself down after a few minutes to protect itself from "insufficient ventilation". The power button would then blink a red light for some time until the console had eventually cooled down. This cycle would then continue over and over because the cooling fan wasn't working.

I purchased the console used from a car boot sale for just £4 with the power supply unit. It was in a box of random cables and junk which is probably why nobody had seen and bought it before me.
Upon inspection I checked the hard drive bay, which had the 250GB hard drive still present making it a no-brainier buy.

The cooling fan used in the latest models of Xbox 360 slim consoles (both E and S series) are identical so sourcing a replacement fan was easy. The replacement fan I purchased from eBay and that actually cost me more than the console did at £7 including postage. Total cost of this console was just £10.99 for a 250GB latest-model Xbox 360 E with power supply plus a bit of time to replace the fan. Not bad, eh?


Car Boot Sales may be otherwise known as a garage sale by some or a flea market. I often go to them (normally weekly) but I only make videos when I find and buy something I feel others will be interested in or pick up some good deals. I sometimes do really well and buy loads of things and then other times I come back with nothing at all. It all depends on what is there on the day!
