I wouldn't buy it if it was me. Working Xbox One consoles are not that expensive. It's most likely caused by either a faulty Southbridge chip, possible one or more components on the main power rail or some other problem on the motherboard. Because of this I don't even take these in for repair.

It's not the easiest, and requires tools that are not too expensive. Most likely power related issues are going to revolve around the power socket. You need to be able to heat the motherboard to at least 190 degrees Celsius. It requires lots of patience and a fair amount of heat, flux and kapton tape. You will need to heat the ground plane which is honestly the toughest part of the job. After that, solder the new socket on. If the issue is due to other components, you will need to find a schematic for the Xbox one and use a multi-meter to find a possible issue. In all honesty, buying a used Xbox that works fully is very stress free. I have replaced a few sockets for the Xbox one, and it's pretty stressful with the amount of heat needed to free the solder from the ground plane.

To be fair, I have heard of people putting their Xbox 360 motherboards in an oven to repair RROD, and it has worked for them, but for me, it's been better to have a more controlled environment. Not saying that process is wrong, but it's something I wouldn't do personally. I used to have a hotplate on the bottom of the motherboard while applying heat to the top. Ovens do apply pretty equal heat across typically anything, but I have never done it because i'm not that ballsy haha. I don't see anything wrong with it, just make sure you can get a correct time the motherboard is supposed to stay in there.

I would probably not do the oven thing. too many things could go terribly wrong. Instead I'm now bidding on a Console that needs an HDD replacement. simple enough.

much better option.
