  • Almost be worth selling it for parts and buying a new one ? Surely there's a 3rd party repairer that could do it alot cheaper ?

    Eb games have a repair service called reboot it is a one off payment no matter how big the repairs it cost $149 for a Xbox 1x not sure about a series x you would have to ask them

    If it really broke itself then I'd be claiming warranty/ACL fitness for purpose and chasing a free repair or replacement.

      I read "self broken" as meaning OP broke it, so warranty does not apply. I can't imagine any scenario where an internal connector would just spontaneously break.

    Sell to Russia.

  • Out of warranty?

      all xbsx is under warranty now as it is less than 12 months from release. So it means OP screwed up trying to do a mod so it will be ineligble for claim.
