I’m sure you’ve heard of this one were you place a few pennies on to the CPU in GPU processor is inside your Xbox 360, and it to supposedly tricks that computer chips in two functioning properly.

A. K. A (The Xbox 360 Penny Fix)…

In order to make this work, you’re going to have to strip down your Xbox 360, all the way down to the motherboard, if you’re not sure how to dismantle your Xbox please watch this video Dismantle Xbox 360.

Once you got your Xbox 360 apart and the motherboard rate in front of you (main circuit board) it’s time for the penny fix.

Things you’ll need to make it work.
1. A new role of pennies
2. Roll of black tape
3. Electrical Glue

So this is what you do, the steps to take.

Take 2 to 3 pennies; stack them on top of each other so it looks 2 to 3 pennies thick.
Take your electrical tape; wrap the pennies so there’s no copper showing at all (make four separate stacks of 3 stack pennies).

On each ram chip use a very small amount of hot glue to stick the stacked of wrapped penny’s to the ram (if you don’t have a hot glue gun, you can use women’s salon nail pads) they work good and don’t leave an ugly mess behind when you take the pennies back off later!

When putting your screws back in, if you used three pennies for your stack don’t screw in the black screws that hold the CPU in GPU – leave them off.

Scroll all the other screws in slow evenly finally tightening them, making sure that all the inputs match up correctly with the holes in the metal casings.

You can watch this video to see how it’s done here.

    Full red ring means there was no video output hooked into the system, not that it had died from overheating.
