    Hello all, I have been searching for an answer to this problem for almost a year now, I have an Xbox 360 Pro from 2006, which has the RROD. Its original error code was 1020, then after X-Clamp fix 0020, if the screws holding the heatsinks are loosened I get E 73, if they are tight, I get 0020 so at this point I don't know what error I truly have but as of right now I assembled the Xbox with E 73 and left it like that. This weekend I'm planning on reflowing it with a heat gun as a last resort because even though I repair computers, BGA chips are rarely faulty and shelling out 800+ for a BGA rework station is ridiculous. If anything if someone could provide prices for a true BGA reflow/recall would be great! Thanks so much

    At this point why not just buy a new Xbox 360? They're priced around $200 these days.

    Yeah I found one working for 40$ with free shipping, I might as well do that and part out the one I currently have and sell it in pieces.
