XBox 1.2 - 1.5 Christmas Lights

Recommended Posts

The dreaded lights have finally arrived. 

I recieved my xbox second hand and it was already modded.

I'm sure there's guide to this somewhere but I haven't seen it. Any ideas to the common causes and checks I should run? I've already started to take it apart and can't see anything terribly wrong, but I'm no expert...

Depends on what exactly the behavior is. Does it restart at all? 


Do do you get video? Any error codes onscreen if so?


Finally, check this out to determine exactly what your LED is doing. If you’ve had the thing for a while HDD failure or clock cap fluid leaking are common reasons for a FRAG.

It can turn on after a couple cycles(of and on a couple times before it starts runnung), but it's always been like that.

Nothing comes up on the screen and the LED (disk light?) flashes Green and Red at an equal rate.

If it is a digital code error, what steps should I take to rectify it, if possible?

      Hiya, I have been lucky enough to pick up a Xbox with a X3 chip. Planning to add a 2TB HDD and LCD screen.
      If anyone can point me to any good tutorials that would be great.
