Xbox One S Teardown – Detailed Disassembly Guide

We can fix your game console:
We take a brand new Xbox One S from the shipping box and tear it down to the bare motherboard. We take a look inside the internal power supply as well and the disc drive.

►Tools I Use:

You will see how to remove the two halves of the case by prying them open with pry tools, then we remove the green screws that hold the metal case inside the Xbox. The top case comes off easily with no ribbon cables attaching it to the rest of the console like with the Xbox One.
After that we can see the hard drive, fan & heat sink, disc drive, power supply and motherboard. We remove the rest of the screws from the bottom and remove each component one by one.
We open the power supply to have a look at the new, internal power supply. We also tear down the disc drive and compare it to the disc drive of the Xbox One.

-Thermal Paste:

  1. Do you think it would be possible to use some Xbox one/one s parts on a PC? If so I would love to see a video on it.

  2. Can anyone help. My xbox one s power button doesn't work why. I can only turn console on by the controller or by putting a disc in.

  3. is there another way to take off the bottom piece. trying to but i dont have any of the proper tools. any household items?if you can please give a suggestion. thnx

  4. Thank you so much i have had an issue with my xbox one s turning on and back off within a few seconds with thus video i was able to clean it and it worked just fine right after

  5. I'm late but soda spilt on the top into the fan and the xbox now goes on but shuts off immediately after. The front light goes on but shuts off. I am trying to take it apart but the black screws that keep the fan in place don't fit the screwdriver attachment I have. I was wondering if maybe just the fan has to be replaced or is it a bigger issue than that? Please respond because I need this.

  6. Came to thia video because i stomped on my xbox and needed to see what was wrong. Found outthe metal overthe fan had been pressing into it, preventibgthe fan fron cooling the xbox down. Thank you soo much man!

  7. Hi there TronicsFix I have problem with my xbox one s. My two controllers for the xbox one s are syncing the same color on my console even the other one is black and it shows white on the system. What could be wrong with it? Could be the controller itself or maybe a wifi module on the system or a going out bad hard drive?
    Reply to any of those who know how can I fix this issues. If any how the hard drive is the problem should I replace it with Solid State Drives for better reliability or should I stick with HDD?

  8. Does anybody here Could Solve my problem ? my xbox one S beeps and then turns off it's comes brandnew doing this and i can't return it From where it's purchased ! 🙁

  9. Another question or two…looking at my Xbox and the side plate and clip that sits under sync button and the clip and side plate are missing. Where would I find parts for fixing that and what a fully working one looks like up close?
