so a while back i got 2 xbox 360s from a guy,one with the RROD, and one missing the dvd key(thats in my other thread) so me being the mr. fix-it i am, i go and perform several of the RROD fix tutorials on here and other websites. none of these have worked. so i try reflowing the board. to no avail. so i find a forum post with RROD error codes and what they mean, so i go and do it and i end up with 0001, a power supply issue. this makes little sense considering the power supply was tested on another xbox 5 seconds before i used it on the broken one. so at this point im wondering what the heck is wrong with my box, and considering just paying to get it fixed. anyone had any similar problems/solutions to said problems?

your mosfets are more than likely blown, and aside from testing for the bad components your pretty much out of luck.

Sounds like you did not perform a successful reflow, which could've led to a blown mofset or two. You could've possibly damaged a resistor, capacitor, or another component that regulates power(mofset).

hold up! i think i found the blown capacitor! its a little ballooned upwards and has some gunk on top of it, could that be the problem? nope just tested it with my volt meter, same as the other ones

For the most part yes. 0001, and 0002 are a pain in the A*s to fix, and nearly impossible.
