The Device and Symptoms

The Xbox Series X is a gaming powerhouse renowned for its cutting-edge features.

Secondly, it emitted excessive noise during operation, indicating an underlying problem.

Diagnosis and assessment

Our skilled technicians promptly assessed the Xbox Series X to identify the root causes behind the issues. Not surprisingly, we found that a damaged HDMI port was responsible for the video display problem. The port had suffered damage due to a cheap HDMI cable purchased from Amazon. Additionally, the console was heavily clogged with dust, leading to the loud fan noise during use.

The Repair Process

To restore the Xbox Series X to its former glory, our technicians followed a comprehensive repair process. Firstly, they carefully disassembled the console, ensuring all components were accessible for inspection and cleaning. Using specialized tools such as a hot air station and a stereo microscope, they skillfully replaced the damaged HDMI port, guaranteeing a fully working display connection.
