Original XBox 1.4v Red Light

Recommended Posts

Hello gents

This afternoon I received original Xbox 1.4 purchase from eBay. I turned it on. And stayed on for about 30min. Then I when head with Tsop. After that I run this Xbox for few hours. Transfer ninja pack, and enjoyed games for some time. Turn back on after dinner and red light start flashing.

Normally I would say over heating, but I'm not sure.

Could be eeprom as well, 8 pin chip next to bios.

And a suggestion please ?

Thanks

From an old tech document, I see the LED ring ORANGE flashing and read elsewhere that the exhaust fan speeds up as an overheating indicator.  RED flashing - config EEPROM corrupt.

(Update: So much for markdown, trying BBCode next.

Not that either, okay I'll add a graphic image of the table.

Eureka!

ADMINs, add a more complete editor capability toolbar also remove or move the right-hand sidebar for Similar Content. 

If moved, I suggest placing it at the bottom of the page so the entire width can be used for presentation of a post's content and view of the wider editor toolbar.)

Then I need eeprom reader. I think hat might be easier way to go ahead. Or unless you guys got different suggestion
I hope eeprom chip it's only corrupted not not dead.
Do anyone know if eeprom chip it's same cross original Xbox 1.0 - 1.5 v.
Thanks

I think it's the same across all Xbox v1.0-1.5 models, U7C2:

Rohm 24C02

The v1.6 EEPROM, U7D1, is labeled L02 not sure of the vendor: Rohm, MicroChip, other - BR24L02. It too is an 8-pin 2-Kbit (256 x 8 bit aka 256 bytes) I2C 2-wire serial bus interface EEPROM. 

However, I think they are all interchangeable across all versions of the Xbox.

I ordered bits already for making eeprom reder.
But that should be possible read aswell with Rpi
Correct me if I'm wrong or I'm missing something
Thanks

Sorry for the long delay in responding, missed your reply posted.

Yes, you can use an RPi and PiPROM software to read/write the Xbox's configuration EEPROM.

      hey everyone thanks to a bunch of people in discord, i managed to wire a wii2hdmi adapter to the xbox for hdmi and audio, works great and there is a difference between it and composite,
      i dont have a good way to screenshot it, i tried doing a live stream on twitch but was having connection problems so it does not look to good, however if you want you can check the videos here Please login or register to see this link.  
      and here is the diagrams, the one with the top of the xbox av port is if you completely desoldered the av port and are replacing the av port with the adapter and the bottom is if you are leaving the av port and just soldering in some wires to the port and adapter
