Hello so i got my rgh almost 1 month ago (2 days will make it one month) and usually sometimes when i turn it off and try turning it back on after sleeping or whatever. it wouldn't boot i'd have to wait or cool it down or plug it out etc. but today i was playing mw2 tu6 and i killed myself then it just randomly froze. i then turned it off and turned it back on and it is no longer booting. its been 4 hours i've tried everything. i tried turning it on with the eject button ,nothing, tried powering it on and then pressing eject ,nothing, taking out HDD and starting ,nothing, tried cooling it off multiple times by putting it in front of AC. it is an 250gb trinity rgh. any help?

i've got a folder with the backup nand but my rgh wont load when i go to xellreloaded aswell

Could Be 3 Things

•Nand Got Corrupted
•Soldering Issue
•Bad XCGPU

If You Don't Have Soldering Experience Sent It In.

Well It's $14 For Shipping + All Depends What's The Issue Is. If It's Just Something Pretty Simple Like A Loose Wire Would Just Charge You For The Shipping.

Well, you should always start by checking if the console is glitching. To do that, just look through the top of the case and you should see a red light. That is the glitch chip, when you power the console on, check in that spot to see if there is a pulsing green light. If there isn't, then it is probably something wrong with the install... If there is, then it could be something such as a corrupted nand as mentioned.

So you're saying it can't boot xell. You don't have a USB or anything connected? Can it boot xell with no HDD attached?

So if your seeing the green debug light flashing inside then it's glitching but not booting. You will need to send it in along with your nand dumps to be diag'd . There's not much more you can do aside from taking it apart and looking for a disconnected solder joint/wire etc.

Edit: if I were you i would contact the seller first and see if he will help you out since it's only 1 month old.

That is a good sign. Usually, when you can see the glitch pulses it is not a soldering issue but rather an issue with the nand or something along those lines. As suggested I would contact the seller, however, I would also try to remove the hdd and try to boot xell. If you can get the console to boot to xell then you can reflash the nand through it.

You said "cool it down", which means it's overheating, which can relate to freezing = reflow or reball is in the near future

i took a guess and thought it was overheating, so i plugged it out and let it cool down.

nope i tried taking it out and booting it like that still didnt boot
