I Bought a Refurbished Xbox One X From Wish.com – Was it a Rip Off?

I Bought a Refurbished Xbox One X From Wish.com – Was it a Rip Off? I paid $319 for a refurbished Xbox One X from Wish.com. The packaging was good and the cords and controller seemed to be in new or like new condition. The console itself looked new (no scratches) but when I updated it the resolution went to 720p and I couldn’t get it to change back. I decided to replace the HDMI retimer/redriver chip because I’ve found that resolution issues like this in Xbox One X consoles are most often cause by these chips being faulty. (However, after replacing the chip I discovered that my HDMI switch was malfunctioning and it’s possible that was the cause of the resolution problem.)

About This Video: I paid $319 for a refurbished Xbox One X from Wish.com which is cheaper than the $400 or so they charge for a new one. However, since most stores are sold out of new Xbox One X consoles this might actually be a pretty good way to go. Everything was packaged very well and the cords and controller seemed to be in new or like new condition. The console itself looked new because I didn’t see any scratches but when I was getting it updated the resolution went to 720p instead of 1080p and I couldn’t get it to change back. I’ve found that resolution issues like this in Xbox One X consoles are most often cause by a faulty HDMI retimer/redriver chip so replacing that chip is what I tried first. After replacing the chip I discovered that my HDMI switch was malfunctioning and it’s possible that was the cause of the resolution problem. That’s why it’s always a good idea to check your connections as part of diagnosing game console issues.
