Hi Guys,


In this guide I’ll explain how to replace the Blu-ray drive it’s PCB. This is required when you swap your motherboard.

  1. Xbox One Disc Drive PCB Replacement, Remove the tape: paso 1, imagen 1 de 3 Xbox One Disc Drive PCB Replacement, Remove the tape: paso 1, imagen 2 de 3 Xbox One Disc Drive PCB Replacement, Remove the tape: paso 1, imagen 3 de 3
    • First of all, remove the sticker/tape from the back of the drive to reveal the 2 other screws. You can do this with your fingers, it could take a little force, but not to much.

  2. Xbox One Disc Drive PCB Replacement, Remove the screws and back cover: paso 2, imagen 1 de 3 Xbox One Disc Drive PCB Replacement, Remove the screws and back cover: paso 2, imagen 2 de 3 Xbox One Disc Drive PCB Replacement, Remove the screws and back cover: paso 2, imagen 3 de 3
    • Remove the 4 PH1 screws.

    • Lift up the back cover and remove it. It should not take any force and should come off easily. I lifted it up at the left side.

  3. Xbox One Disc Drive PCB Replacement, Remove the ribbon cables: paso 3, imagen 1 de 3 Xbox One Disc Drive PCB Replacement, Remove the ribbon cables: paso 3, imagen 2 de 3 Xbox One Disc Drive PCB Replacement, Remove the ribbon cables: paso 3, imagen 3 de 3
    • Do NOT remove the ribbon cables yet, make sure you opened up the ZIF connector first and then remove the ribbon cables. Otherwise you could damage the PCB.

    • Open up all the 3 ZIF connectors with your finger nails or with an plastic opening tool carefully.

    • Then remove the 3 ribbon cables from their sockets.

  4. Xbox One Disc Drive PCB Replacement, Desolder the cables: paso 4, imagen 1 de 3 Xbox One Disc Drive PCB Replacement, Desolder the cables: paso 4, imagen 2 de 3 Xbox One Disc Drive PCB Replacement, Desolder the cables: paso 4, imagen 3 de 3
    • You will see an red and an black cable soldered to the PCB.

    • Now get your solder iron ready to desolder the 2 cables. Heat and melt the solder, with your other hand hold the tweezer. When the solder is melting, remove the cable with your tweezer to get the cable out.

    • It's recommended you use desoldering wick, so you can put some fresh new solder on the pads. Recommended but not required.

    • Now it should look like the last photo.

    You can also slide the drive out of the bottom half of the metal case and then unscrew the motor and bring it with the PCB to the new drive (assuming the motor is good).

    That is correct! You can transfer the motor to the new drive if the motor is OK. I created this guide if you need to replace the motherboard. But yes this is an option if you replace the drive only :).

    • Remove the tiny 3 PH1 screws from the PCB.

    • Hold the PCB and move it up. You should notice that PCB will come loose from the drive.

    • Now hold in the middle and move it upward a little and the back to yourself. Be aware that it will need a little force (especially from the right side, as a clip is holding it down), but it should come off easily.

    • That's it! You got the PCB out!

  7. Xbox One Disc Drive PCB Replacement, Installing the new PCB: paso 7, imagen 1 de 2 Xbox One Disc Drive PCB Replacement, Installing the new PCB: paso 7, imagen 2 de 2
    • When installing the new PCB, look out for the spots as shown in Photo 1 (red circles). When you follow photo 1 and tight it with screws, you could break the PCB ! So do the opposite of Photo 1!

    • Photo 2 shows correctly how the PCB need to be seated. As you can see in the blue circles.

Conclusión

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Hopefully this guide helped you to replace the PCB!

I got a refurbished disc drive for Xbox one console and later learned logic board had to be switched. What's that?

Hi!

Yes, you need to use your old PCB. If you do not transfer your (original) PCB from your drive, you’ll not be able to play games..

PS: Merry Xmas everyone!

I also did not know you needed to replace the PCB with the optical drive. However, the new one will not even suck in a disc, just like the old one did not. Does this mean the new drive is bad as well, or just needs PCB? Would not replacing PCB make the thing not even receive a disc?

Hi there!

You are required to swap the PCB to play games. With an non-married PCB to your current motherboard, should still accept discs! You’ll be able to watch movies only. Are you sure that everything is dust free? Perhaps you got another faulty drive… The issue you describe is common.

I just did this with a new disc drive and it still will not read discs. It sucks the disc in and will eject but will not read discs. When I insert a disc into the new drive it makes a strange noise like my previous disc drive was doing. Is my new disc drive bad?

Chad B - Contestar

Hi Chad!

That is possible yes. Strange noise could refer to the worm motor. Try to trade in the new disc drive and try again!

Finally found out why my drive was making an ejecting noise on start from these photos.

It was because the white plastic part shown under the red circle was off to the right and wasnt pushing that button/ in.

Craig Donnelly - Contestar

Alright! Glad that you were able to fix it :)!

Let's say I got the PCB out, can I attach to different blue ray drive, from PC or laptop?

Or does it have to specific model. Any mods available?

robert - Contestar

No, it needs to be the specific blu-ray drive. If it's the exact same model as from the Xbox one, you can swap it. Not sure if there are any mods available.
