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.

  • when you plug something in that you think might short or catch fire it is best to plug it into a switch or one of those cheap extenders that have a switch and use the switch to turn on the device. Faster to turn off and avoids any injury

  • with all the time you put to repair those , i dont think its worth it. you have to consider also that you wont sell them for much even if you finally repair them. i saw a brand new xbox one s sold for 200 with games and everything. if u paid 60$ and sold it maybe like 150 , even if u fix half of those xbox , you dont make much money at all. you also get the problem of selling them which is not always easy. on ebay for example , theres some chances that an idiot will claim to return and you get into problems. i would not even think about buying a scrap system to repair it like you did.

    WigoWigoHari Yang lalu
  • Reality: store price for new Xbox: 300 for broken: 199 15x199 = 2,985. Game store returns - 90% of what your selling to them and 10% to you. that said, they'll probably give you 40 - 50 dollars because game stores have swine type policies. Super Store returns - must have receipt and depends how broken the console is, to broken = no return. broken slightly = possible accepted return and refund. a game store has to give you like 40% of your money back but 60% of the return is now not yours, anymore, so its like counting from 1 to 10 without starting from 0, 1 2 3 4

It pains me to say it but "buy American" scares me these days. Japan seems to be doing very well on their craftsmanship. This is extremely disappointing... : /

  • That was interesting that a optical drive is married to the motherboard so it won't work without the original optical drive. So why did they take out the drive in the first place? Did it work on another Xbox? Or do you think they took out parts from the optical drive to repair a broken optical drive? Either way I think it's very stupid and causes to much money to repair a Xbox if you have to replace the entire motherboard if a optical drive is broken for those that are not Official repair from Microsoft.

  • Jesus what lowly mongrel designed these things, the Feminist school of Electrical Engineering? Sandwiched layered powered rail and ground, mated disk drive and motherboard. What an unfixable piece of junk. Talk about planned obsolescence. I will never buy anything Microsoft ever again, and I used to work for Microsoft(sub contractor). I know with the original XBOX they put software limitations so that the full functionality couldn't be achieved, unless you chipped it.
