The original Xbox console was a great machine but it had a number of design flaws. First of all, on most models of the console, there is a capacitor that was used as a backup battery for storing the date and time. This capacitor almost always starts to leak and since it leaks corrosive acid it can damage your Xbox motherboard. There’s more information on this fault here. We will dismantle your console and remove this capacitor if necessary. In most cases your console will then simply get the date and time from the network connection as long as that is available.

Secondly, the thermal paste that Microsoft used on the Xbox is not regarded as being too great. As part of this service our technician will remove the heatsinks and apply fresh new thermal compound. This ensures optimum cooling for your classic console and will prolong its life.

The price given above should be considered an estimate. Although the vast majority of consoles can be refurbished for this fee, some may need additional repair work depending on the damage done by the leaking capacitor.

    Hi, if I send my Xbox in can you also fix the issue where the disc tray won’t open when the eject button is pressed? May just need a new belt but I’m not sure.

  2. BuckoA51 says:

    Yep, pop a note in with the console explaining the issue and our technician will look into it and quote you for the repair if necessary.
