Hello,

I inherited a broken 360s from my brother. The DVD drive (Liteon 0225) has a blown PCB with visible damage on the surface. I was wondering what I can do from this point.. I have no dumps/keys or anything of that sort.

I was looking at this:
http://www.xconsoles.com/products/liteon-dg-6d4s-unlocked-replacement-pcb-v1-point-1.html

And I had some questions..

1.) Will this be able to get me up and running?
2.) Will this let me extract the original key?
3.) Will I need any other tools to complete the job besides this


Thanks.

just buying that will not be the end of it I'm afraid you will need the DVD key extracting from the motherboard using the rgh process and then you will flash that to the pcb and install to the console it may be cheaper to send it to a pro around the area you are located

Can you post a pic of the damage on your pcb? might be able to salvage it

As [AD] says, it's possible the damage can be repaired. There's a cap and fuse on D4S boards which get blown if you plug the connector in upside-down. If it's just this, it's an easy repair at minimal cost.

Alright.. here are some pictures of the board. I'll need some hand-holding through this whole process unfortunately.. I'm actually a pretty technical guy and have no issues with soldering.. it's just the wealth of information out there regarding all this stuff. It can be overwhelming.. I mean, what's the correct method and what's not?

These should be pretty decent pictures:

C6 is a 100uf 6V Cap

Check R1 by it to make sure it is still 0ohms.

You definitely need to replace C6.
If R1 is not 0ohms, you can replace it with another 0ohm resistor, or just bridge the pads and make sure no dumbass plugs it in upside-down again. ;)

Oh, and before you ask:

Yes, you can use a cylinder electrolytic cap with a higher voltage rating.

100uf is the most common cap there is. Just steal one off anything as long as its voltage rating is 6V or higher.

EDIT: Here is one i did the other day that was much worse off than yours was. Several of the traces were actually burnt up.
