  1. Gold and Black Caps

    Must be a climate thing because out of the dozen or more Xbox's I have looked at/have in the last 12 months I have only seen 2 x version 1.1 units with leaky clock cap's and 1 Version 1.2 with bulging caps. SS Dave
  2. Gold and Black Caps

    Here is one of many places Google is you friend. https://www.mouser.com/Passive-Components/Capacitors/Supercapacitors-Ultracapacitors/_/N-5x76s?P=1yztzayZ1z0wx1k What other caps did you remove and WHY?
  3. What Mod Is This?

    For 20 bucks you really can't go wrong. SS Dave
  4. My Current Stuff for Sale

    Hi N64Freak I am keen on the HDMI mod if you have some available? As for fitting I don't think I would have any problems as I have been repairing car audio units including replacing 100 pin main micros which other places said could not be done for the last 30+ years. The audio on your HDMI kit I assume is getting a digital signal not the analog and the video signal would be RGB from the main PCB is this correct? Cheers SS_Dave
  5. Wiping Hard Drive

    Hi vwboywonder Try using a partition program to change it from XFAT to NTFS. Then do a full/Slow Format. I use AOMEI Partition Assistant but there are plenty others out there. Cheers SS_Dave
  6. Ss_dave's XBox's

    It seems that my collection grows every week My version 1.6 Xbox 2TB hdd with Games and Coinop’s installed. Digital audio output mod in AV cupboard. The kid’s entertainment Xbox temp setup. It keeps the kids happy. My 1st HDMI output mod still have to load it up with games. SSD disk experiment in progress. Some of my Xbox’s waiting for some TLC/Mods.
  7. Hi All My user name SS_Dave reflects the car I had at the time I was thinking of a nick name and my name. I have been doing basic repairs and mods to the original Xbox's since their release and at one stage I would get at least 1 or 2 Xbox’s a week to be modded and or upgraded HDD fitted in my spare room. I would get machine’s that owners had tried to mod to get going as a lot of other modders would not touch a already opened box and I would have a 95% success rate of getting it running again. I did get a lot of untouched boxes as well. I also used to keep some Hdd's in stock (In the beginning 120gig was the most common due to the cost) for upgrades as well the owner didn’t have to wait for a delivery from interstate computer parts suppliers. Dr Google lead me here while looking for Xbox info and I hope to be able to help others in their quest to get there original Xbox's up and running. Cheers SS_Dave
