Power Button

Recommended Posts

I have an issue with my Xbox. it seems that the power button is not functional. does anyone have a wiring diagram for that circuit or know what pins to read on the wire bundle?

have you ruled everything else out by switching it or manually turning it on?

well, to turn it on I press the CD/DVD eject button. but when I try to turn it off with the power button nothing happens.

 

how do you manually turn it on other than the power button, which it does not turn on the xbox

nice XBOX you should TSOP it. The switch could be broken if the xbox is turning on but the button does nothing. I had the same thing happen. replacements on ebay are dirt cheap. I am wondering if trace corrosion could cause this but I doubt it

yeah I was looking to TSOP it but wanted to see if this old thing still worked. well it does but the power/dvd buttons board might be and might not be the issue.  could be a gunked up dvd drive pulling too much power and power cycling the unit.  just now noticed after tearing it apart and putting it back together that the dvd butting power cycles the unit but does not eject the drive...

ok so I put it all back together and the only button that works is the eject button and it shuts off and turns on the unit...

The power button has a trace running under the board that intersects the clock capacitor, and I'm gonna bet yours leaked and ate that trace. Same thing happened to a used board I bought. The damage was so microscopic I couldn't locate it without a 10x magnifying glass. On the other hand a resistor could have died. Get yourself a multimeter and do a simple continuity test of the points on this page: http://fillwithcoolblogname.blogspot.com/2011/02/1st-gen-xbox-trace-corrosion-repair.html

ok so I have removed the clock capacitor (leaked) and cleaned everything up.  after putting it back together it will only power on with the eject button, also when I press the eject button again it powers off.

good news is that the dvd drive boots a game disk just fine.

Check the underneath side of the motherboard for trace corrosion along the front edge.  These thin easily damaged traces carry processed power and eject button closure status to the PIC processor (System Management Controller - SMC).

Typical trace corrosion on the back (solder side) of the ogXbox motherboard - grid section 7V.

      My XBOX turns on and works but the green light around the eject button does not come on. The system is a 1.0 version and has been successfully Tsoped. A red light comes on around the eject button when booting with the Helen 2017 disk, but I don’t ever get a green light under normal operation. Any idea what would cause this or how I can fix it?  Thanks.

      I believe my Xbox is a 1.6 - it has the Xcalibur chip. Correct?
      I purchased a new power cable for the unit. It still does not power up. I ripped it apart and it looks like there is a short on the power supply board. Does anyone know where I can find one for sale for the 1.6? or how to fix this? Picture below. Hopefully the pictures are clear. 
      What else could the issue be???
      Your help is appreciated!
      I am planning to update and revisit this project from 10 years ago. Current Mods - SmartXX mod chip with 180gb HDD. (Nothing special)
