[HELP] Weird S905 A95X box - No display but working

:grinning: I have an A95X 1g/8g that was giving the "no hdmi signal" issue. This happened after I removed the heatsink. I remember applying pressure to the processor got it working.
One night, out of sheer frustration, I slammed it down on a table so hard, it refused to come back on.
Never thought about keeping constant pressure on the processor though. :grimacing:

This sounds like the processor is not soldered properly and I wonder if a couple seconds in an oven would help. :thinking:

Mine is totally dead now. The heating thing made even the AV output dead.
Well, looks like this one will go in trash now. Sadly...

Sorry to hear that. I have added mine to my growing collection of bricked or destroyed boxes.
(1 MX, 3 MX2s, 2 MXQs, 1 MXQ Pro, 1 Nexbox A95X).
Look on the bright side, next time you will know what to do.
Out of curiosity, how did you heat it?

Took a matchstick to heat it😂
I now have 2 bricked boxes. One s905x and one s905.

Well 2 boxes ain't so bad.
What's wrong with the S905X? I am an expert at bricking. :grin:

My other s905x box has no processor 😂 Can you help me put it back?😂
I was trying to take off the heatsink, it was glued to the processor, I tried taking it off and the heatsink along with the processor came off😂😂

Damn, that's really bad. :grimacing:
I wish we could sell it for parts, but... :))

Well now others will know that they will have to be extremely careful when playing around with the heatsinks on these things. I usually just slide a thin knife between the processor and heatsink, never applied heat to soften the glue. Next time I will try using a razor and a blow dryer.

Thanks for your experiments. :relaxed:

Are you sure you will not try to repair these boxes? @Nayam

nope, it'll be a waste of time and money and where I live, I don't think there's any repair shop that has done repairs on tv boxes.
