A majority of the consoles had power issues including two that wouldn't turn on at all and two that would turn on and then turn right back off. Also, one of the consoles had a issue with nothing showing on the screen.

    • Tronics why did you give me your number?

    • Hey pony were is your broken ps5 ? And controllers?

    • @TronicsFix hey could you say congratulations to me I got my Xbox series s yesterday and it’s delivering on Wednesday

    • you try to slide me one? fixed would be nice lol. I cant get it as im a little poor

    • Steve: Warns everybody about impersonators Me: Instantly scrolls through the full comments section in attempt to find one

  • Very satisfying when you fix something.. well done

  • If you actually feel where you plug the power lead in its extremely loose and the lead never feels secure. Maybe that has something to do with all these power issues

  • weird that it says xbox one on the chip at 15:18 even though it's a series x

  • I have a series x with a cracked chip on the board right on the opposite side of motherboard from where the HDMI port is. Could anyone help me identify what it is so I can replace it?

  • You da man .. nice fixes

  • I tell ya your video Definitely taught me? To pony up for that Extended Warranty without a Doubt.....

  • So happy how he fixed #2

  • When I can't sleep. I watch your videos. It help me fall asleep. Dunno why.

  • That finger cheese comment made me rethink my whole life. Now I need to thoroughly clean every controller I've ever owned.

  • I just can't get over Xbox choosing AA batteries in 2021 😑

  • how long did the previous owners have them to break them

  • I sometimes wonder. How does so many consoles just die being so brand new.

  • 5 is like my Xbox 360

  • I have an Xbox series X controller but I use it with an Xbox one

  • Did you ever figure out #5??

  • I can't wait til someone makes a script for the ssd so I can take my series x apart for a ssd upgrade because 1 tb is not enough storage ! And also if there can be a script for external ssd format/partitions so I can use m.2 nvme with an adapter which should be cheaper than the Seagate one

  • Can you fix the one Planrock 124 using ?

  • Here's reality if you want to have an actual gaming experience by a computer consoles are not worth it anymore you can get a gaming PC half the price of a console now

  • whats wrong whit people? I have not even broken my 30+ year old consoles jet.

  • Watching this just after ordering xbox series x inspires lot of confidence :p

  • I honestly believe that these companies deliberately make faulty goods that can't be fixed, just so you'll need to buy another new one! Double the profit!

  • 15:21 why does the chip say Xbox One?

  • There i was sat looking at my borked Series X that just stopped working one day, saw this video and took gamble, got out my tools had a tinker here a tickle there and 2 hrs later was still looking at a borked Series X ... after 3 hours though and to be honest i dont know what i did, put it all back together connected it up to my TV turned it on and ...... NOTHING !!!! realised the power socket on the wall was not switched on, tried again and .........NOTHING !!! ...... changed the power lead and ...... Nothing again !!!! Kicked the cat, kissed the wife, or was it kicked the wife and kissed the cat, i cant remember.. checked all the connections once more ... hit that X button and ............... Troncs Fix does some awsome videos ....

  • I just sent mine in to get repaired last week I kept getting a greenscreen on every game and then the console would shut off

  • My Xbox one S stopped booting and I tried everything from their website. I tried to do the restore with usb and it hangs at 50% then I get the error it failed. I used OSU1-3 . You have any videos on how to fix? I ordered a new HDD thinking the HDD went bad. Awesome videos!!!!

  • Made to fail by design! The lifetime guarantee light bulbs was invented decades ago, Unfortunately as more was sold the company and its competitors started seeing losses in profits due to a lack of repeat custom, To combat this all tech companies signed a contract/agreement/treaty to never make anything last a lifetime, This gave birth to the 10yr warranty/guarantee,, yet most products out lived the warranty, Even to this day i see working top-loader VCR's and wooden CRT tv's,,,,, these are over 40yrs old. The ability to manufacture long lasting high quality tech is there but quality has been replaced by greed, The larger the company the shorter the life of its products, but they'll be happy to fix it for you for a price, It seems the more advanced tech gets the shorter its life and this from companies that make billions, So you can be confident in the fact that your new (more expensive) device model will have a shorter life than your old one

  • When I bought my Series X, First time my disc drive was broken. Sent it back, got it back. Disc drive fixed, but the hard drive was messed up(games would play but will slow down and crash the console) sent it back one last time and finally fixed. Just leaving this here if anyone is in these situations.

  • Literally Louis Rossman of gaming consoles

  • He jinxed the last one hardcore😹

  • yo man you are amazing, ur video opened up randomly and i saw the hard work u did there man, its great!!

  • I bought a warehouse full of ps5s can I fixed them all in a month

  • I didn’t know Xbox still had batteries

  • Thanks, I thank Im going to try this some time when I get the extra money.

  • One of the best videos I've seen. Great work, dude. Instant subscribe


  • Enjoyed the video , but what concerns me is that these consoles are a year old and chips seem to be faulty and shorting 🥺

  • Man i bet like anything fixing it, that it feels so good when you successfully fix stuff like this. Great video!

  • Why are these sold on eBay I never understand aren’t they covered under warranty still

  • What the chips they keep blowing? And where do I get them from

  • It has not been a year, and it makes no sense someone would attempt to repair something that Microsoft can do under warranty?

  • Pretty easy to repair

  • bad power supply seems to be a trend with Microsoft I wonder if you've uncovered some kind of known defect. thanks for posting

  • How much time does it add to your repair jobs when you're recording a video while doing it?

  • I'm amazed at how many people don't use the warranty when there electronics break. Especially game consoles. I registered my Series X on Microsoft website and the warranty is until 4/2023. So instead of trying fix it yourself try to setup a repair. Especially if it just died all of a sudden.

  • 4-700 for a broken console. Where's your resale value at? That's just wicked.

  • The real question is…. who breaks their console this fast?

  • These are fascinating to watch, respect to you dude you are really good at what you do!. Keep up the great work this is very entertaining and learn alot!.

  • Less than a year after release and people are already breaking them? THESE ARE RARE DUDE

  • Seems like the newer the generation, the much higher chance it will be broken. I still have old console from 20+ years ago that still work fine.

  • here as im waiting for microsoft to fix my xbox haha, randomly bricked and from tronicsfix previous videos, i had a faulty power supply... or not the perfect amount of thermal paste

  • How you get broken ones I can’t find not one at all broken or not 😂😂😂

  • Anyone else disturbed by the fact that there are already broken PS5 and Xbox Series X and they aren't even available in the wild yet.

  • I know how to fix all these problems, you need to buy a kit called PS5

  • people still play consoles?

  • good work

  • wonder why microsoft still using battery should use lithium charging one so can save the planet a little bit

  • 18:06 - move over Sherlock, this needs some serious investigation 🥳

  • Pro tip: Don't touch a power supply capacitor. Especially don't touch a power supply at all with an ESD wrist band on.

  • 🔥 So I just watched your 🎮 video with seven broken PlayStation five controllers.(Excellent breakdown) Now I’m watching this vid & lol I don’t know why🤔 I’m still rocking my PlayStation4slim with no plans of upgrading anytime soon! I’m window shopping Hardware fixes for consuls I don’t have! I might just be a curious person, or if the algorithms are doing their job!

  • How could this mamy prople break such a new console

  • How are people already breaking these, theyre brand new

  • Amazing! 😃👍

  • Hi, Love your fixing videos, and have questions: - how long fixed items keep working ? - fixed are better than retail ones ? - would you recommend buying fixed ? Thanks.

  • It's risky buying broken consoles from eBay , you could get an empty Xbox case with nothing inside it

  • What are you putting on the board to protect it during heating/microsoldering? The clear liquid.

  • If they don't dissipate the vrms at all, it's pretty obvious that they burn out 😤

  • I wish I could learn to solder somewhere...none of the local colleges or trade schools teach it, so I'm afraid it's going to become a lost art in the near future...😢

  • Great experinced guy . He can save ton of money and hearts by his talent

  • gamestop refurbished xbox series x's will be just a chassis

  • "Already got some finger cheese in the cracks. " 🤢

  • You are amazing sir. I could never afford an Xbox Series X, I rather have a broken one than none at all. And here you are, a magician in heaven playing and understanding that technology like it is nothing. You are amazing sir.

  • Can i ask how you remove and reattach the components to the board? Looks like you are using a heat gun?

  • I bought one from gamestop and it was supposed to work but atleast microsoft have warranty

  • I wanted to buy one, now I wont. 5 broken xbox is 5 too many😑

  • 15:20 hmmmmm, recycling parts microsoft?

  • I think alot of people have these in cabinets and they get too hot

  • It amazes me how people treat their stuff.everytime I sell something it usually looks new still

  • What caused #2 and #4 to have the same problem? Was it a coincidence, or something else causing the chip in the same spot to go bad?

  • I'm confused about the first Xbox you took apart. You had the power button pcb resting on the power supplies metal casing while you were trying to power it up. That could be causing a short on the pcb.

  • Not gonna lie, this job looks very fun

  • Tells you a lot about the durability of Xbox lol

  • image when ps5 came out the xbox x had to do a recall due to their power being faulty xD

  • How have people already broke series xes and this was even 2 months ago how

  • Wow dude thanks for the video! pretty inspirational though. I just don't know where one even begins to find parts for that sort of stuff and how you go about teaching yourself this type of technical skill?

  • This was a bad ass video! 10/10

  • Sure seems like alot of the issues have to do with the power, maybe microsoft should look into that.

  • how do people break things so quick

  • You have a lot of experience for sure but on other instances you say you just started out repairing consoles at home basically out of necessity of working something at home which lead me to believe that you didn't get a "professional training" outside the generous amount of wisdom available on the net (back when you started yourself) I'm a bit confused now sometimes these 2 statements seem to contradict and I'm wondering because I myself want to get into this so bad, hurts my soul to see consoles and other electronics thrown away.

  • Dude just turn them on and off 🙄

  • Absurd that there’s so many broken systems already

  • Mans like bob the builder. Bob the builder! Can he fix it? Bob the builder! Yes he can!

  • When i see this, i am happy we have 2 years insurance in germany on most electric products.😅

  • What is that clear liquid when you are heating the chips to come out

  • There's already broken Xbox series X's out there that's sad

  • I have my series X for few months now and nothing works great

  • 24:44 how does that even happen lol

  • I don’t know, Xbox looks cheap. Do Xbox users like that controller?

  • When you were resoldering a part on Xbox number 3 you had it under microscope what is the make and model of soldering iron did you use? And where to get the microscope you used?

  • Bruh these consoles have only been out like 8 months or so so how is it that people have already rekt their consoles. I have literally never broken a console in my life and I've had my nintendo wii since 2010.
