Oven Bake Fix (Tutorial)

Filed Under: , , , ,

This was my first time doing my xbox in an oven and it fixed all the errors I had. I reflowed the GPU, RAM and Southbridge. It is not necessary to do all of these but doing them all cannot hurt.
Doing this can fix errors such as: E67; E69; E71; E73; E74; E76; E79.
0013; 0012; 0011; 0001; 0020; 0021; 0022; 0100; 0102; 0103; 0110; 0010 and more.
I do not take responsibility to any damage you do to yours or any other person's xbox and/or oven
Anything red in this tutorial is important to keep in mind.
1. Start with your motherboard.

2. This is the stuff I used. You don't have to use the exact same stuff. Anything that is a poor conductor of heat will be good.

3. Make a base layer of (sello)tape or light material.

4. Then a layer of foam, bubblewrap or whatever you're using.

5. Then another layer of old clothing or whatever you are using.

6. Now a layer of foil.

7. Now it's time for the oven. Put it in at room temperature then turn it up to 90C or straight to step no. 8 to let it heat up.
Make sure you have it on something so that the heat can get underneath.

8. Let it heat up to 150C. Once at that temperature leave it to heat for 30secs to 1min.

9. Turn it up to 180C. Once at the temperature leave it for another 30secs to 1min.

10. Then up to 200C. Once heated, leave it for 1 minute. You will probably get a (burning) smell. This is most likely your tape melting and/or burning.

11. Finally heat it up to 230C. Once heated, leave for a good four mins. Smoke may arise into the room, I suggest opening the windows and sticking a fan in the room.
a pic
12. After a few mins turn the oven off and leave it in there up to 5 minutes to let the smoke gradually seep out.

13. Open the door and leave it in or take it out (your choice). Some of my foil came off but no biggy.

14. Once cooled start stripping the layers away. As you can see some of the tape melted a bit.

This stuff can't be re-used as it's all sticky from melted double sided tape.

Here is the finished board looking normal and hopefully fixed!

15. I suggest doing a hybrid fix on the GPU and CPU or a 'normal' fix on the CPU. Links can be found at the extras.
You can re-use the insulation.

Here's a pic that shows the masking tape is undamaged! I recommend using this rather than Double sided tape.

16. Test.

I personally don't use a lot of the supplys there. I find just using socks and towels tightly taped up works just as good. Just make sure you have it tightly wrapped.
