Restoring & repairing Xbox 360 controller that won’t turn on and that is yellowed. I bought this controller as junk from Ebay.
I started the restoration with disassembly. The shell is closed with safety torx screws, which means normal torx bit won’t fir them. To remove the trigger buttons I need to bend the plastic so I can’t recommend that unless it is necessary, even though the plastic is very well bending. I also removed the sticker with isopropyl alcohol so I can reapply it once I’m finished.
After disassembly I cleaned the parts and put the yellowed plastic in the retrobrighting box I made on my other channel. Link to the video: https://youtu.be/JX-RJM8MZpU I used hydrogen peroxide UV-light and heat to remove the yellowing from the plastic.
To open the battery pack I used some plastic tools, lots of force and patience. The pack is not meant to be opened but it can be done carefully without breaking anything. Once pack was opened I cleaned the battery contacts with isopropyl alcohol. Lastly the two halves were glued back together.
Thank you for watching my video!
