    How To Replace A Slim Power & Eject Switch Ribbon Flex Cable

    How To Replace A Slim Power & Eject Switch Ribbon Flex Cable

    First Thing is To Open Your Slim Go Here >> Disassembling the Xbox 360 Slim By Xecuter



    Tools Used

    Marker Pen
    Pick and Hook Tool or Small Flat head screw driver
    Twezers
    Q-Tips
    Reflow Wand or some way of Heatgunning to remove the old ribbon if not it will still come off but it's harder to remove it.



    First Thing is To Disconnect The Face Plate Ribbon From The 360




    Next Remove The Plastic Clip Holding The Ribbon
    I see in videos that this is being broke off for no reason it will pop off if you take your time i used a Pick and Hook Tool here very easy to get the inside clip just pry it up slowly .




    Or Just Use A Small Flat Head Screw Driver A Bit Tricky To Get The Inside One




    Next Get A Marker Pen & Mark A Template



    Next Use Heatgunning & A Twezers To Remove The Ribbon A Nice Low Heat Do Not Go Mad And Melt The Face Plate.





    Now Fit The New Ribbon Peel Back A Bit At A Time & Use A Q-Tip To Stick And Smooth Out The Ribbon Like Shown Below






    Now Snap The Plastic Clip That Was Holding The Ribbon Back On Small Bit Of Glue If Needed Job Done Put Your Slim Back Together

    Will this solve the issue of my eject button not beeping or ejecting the tray?

    Yes if you did the damage trying to open the slim like others have putting a screw driver or open tool in the wrong hole on front most probably scratched or cut the trace on the ribbon when trying to open the slim.

    I bought the slim in this state, it was still sealed up.

    I've never needed a tool to remove the front, a bit of without has always done the trick.

    Give it a try and let us know how it works. Really, I couldn't see you doing any damage if it doesn't work you just wouldn't want it to get so hot it melts the ribbon.
    don't forget to hit the and buttons for those who helped you

    Re: How To Replace A Slim Power & Eject Switch Ribbon Flex Cable

    if you have done it as posted then you either have a faulty ribbon or its not making proper connection between the connecting block on the rol and the ribbon take it out make sure the contacts are clean on the ribbon and the slot on the block is clear other then that its faulty.
