  1. Thanks! I'll check it out.
  2. I'm interested in having all of the Halo 2 multi player maps. I'm aware that a disk was released with maps and updates but learned that a couple of maps and updates came out after its release. Is there a way to still get those updates?

    Thanks SS_Dave, I went ahead and ordered the correct PSU as well as a circa 2005 console just to be on the safe side of things.

    I'm new to this kind of thing. What do I look for when trying to determine if the capacitors are blown?

    Yeah, I didn't do very good research before I bought the the PSU I tried to get to work. Honestly after learning that there was a recall with the earlier PSUs and that the plug on the board is loose as a goose, I think I need to just get the correct PSU. I'm already having to use a transformer to run the console, and I just don't want to have to worry about it burning my house down. Thanks for the reply! Cheers!

    Hey guys, I'm an American that has lived in Europe for 10+ years. When I initially came over, I brought along my original xbox console and had a lot of fun with it until I made the mistake of plugging the 110v system into a 220v outlet without a transformer... Dumb, I know but now I want to fix it. This console is a circa 2004 Halo Edition so it would be a real shame to toss it. I received a used PSU from Ebay (a Foxlink) and modified the plug in order for it to work following a great article from this forum : Thanks Xbox Admin, this article was really helpful. I unfortunately couldn't get the console to power on even though everything was hooked up. So my question is, does anyone know if the there's a possibility that I managed to damage the whole console beyond repair? Should I pull the trigger on another (and correct Delta PSU this time) to try fixing it again? If anyone has any advice I would love to hear it. Thanks!
  8. My broken console got me here as well as my love for retro games. I look forward to possibly getting to know some new folks and learning new things. Cheers!
