Broken XBox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows

Posted in General at 11:12 pm by jw

My XBox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows died.  No more green light, no more being recognized by the OS when I plugged it in.  Weirdly enough, the first one I got was like this on purchase so I exchanged it for this one which worked fine… up until now.

Luckily, I found this fix from Eding1 which worked brilliantly.  Amazing the fuse blows so easily, and so irrevocably and yet nothing else on the USB chain had any issues at all.  Bad Microsoft hardware I guess…

Opening the receiver (use a knife or something to lever the top off):

Unscrew and turn the circuit board over then solder across F1:

Notes from the comments:

  • You can test whether this will work by connecting something like a paperclip across the fuse without desoldering it, then plugging it into your PC.
  • Apparently you can use foil paper and electrical tape to connect across the fuse.  Personally I’d recommend soldering, but if you don’t have a soldering iron it’s worth a try.
  • If “lever the top off” isn’t explicit enough for those not insane enough to pull apart everything they own, to get the case off jam, and I mean JAM, a butterknife in. Wedging it in the crease that is above the wire (between grey and white). Getting it in there good then wiggle and twist all about until the glue gives way. Because every inch other then where the wire is was thoroughly glued down. The circuitboard is receased so no need to be gentle, just don’t angle down.
  • Be warned folks. Just tried this trick on mine and it was the receiver that was causing the short. Just fried a USB port on my computer. Everything else seems okay for now http://rxtadalafil.com/.
