Xbox One Deep Clean

For this fix I was asked to look at an original Xbox One that was no longer reading discs. I disassembled the Xbox to remove the Disc Drive, and cleaned the laser. The console was covered in dirt and dust, so I took the opportunity to clean the Xbox thoroughly too.

What I wasn’t to know until I put the Xbox One back together was that the Disc Drive was completely dead. I was asked to first give it a good clean to see if it would spring back to life. Sadly it hasn’t, so this Xbox will back in for repair later on to fit a new disc drive. I thought it would be nice for you all to see how to deep clean an Xbox One though 🙂
