  1. Hey guy, I've been having an on going issue with my xbox's lcd screen. I've had the screen installed for atleast 6 months and im happy with it. But it seems it constantly blanks out mid game and sometimes will come back after a few minutes, there is a few times where the screen will actually dim(more than what I have it set to) then blank out shortly after. I've also notice after booting if I go into settings and switch it on and off it will not go blank. I've gone through the lcd.mxl and revamped it to removed most scrolling texts or any character that isn't supposed by the 2004a lcd, reflowed my solder, reprogramer my arduino, reflashed my openxenium but still no luck. It also does the exact same thing in xbmc4gamers. Any help would be great. Xbmc4xbox Origins skin + ui update Openxenium Spi2par backpack + smbus wires 1.0 xbox
  2. Thank you very much for all your help. You really went above and beyond for me. Even though it didn't workout I still appreciate you spending all that time.
  3. X2 bios, fan isn't set to zero it's set to the standard speed. I did test and get 0 ohm. Why isn't it okay to use the 12v and 5v on the molex? Alot of people used to do it on older PCs. Just asking so I know. I was thinking just to wire in a pot and adjust the fan manually.
  4. Yup 100ohms Can I just splice the fan into the 12v and 5v SATA converter and run it at 7v safely. Or are we getting close to fixing this.
  5. 4-6 = 0.3ohm 1-3 = 0.1ohm 1-2 = 0.0ohm 2-3 = 0.0ohm 3-4 = 0.3ohm Across cap c3n2 = OL Edit didn't see the black arrows Black arrow to black arrow - 0.0ohm
  6. Testing across the cap I got no reading. Testing grounds to to ground I get 0.1ohm(ground pad of c3n2). The cap is reading 1.1uf.
  7. Checked the supply voltage while it was on and the neg leads while it was off since I needed the board flipped upside down. Should I be testing while it's live?
  8. Testing the transistor (removed the replacement I put in and putboth the original and one in from another dead 1.0 board) 1&3 pins are 0ohm and pin 2 has 12v going to it. Seems as if I am not getting a signal to pin 1&3.
  9. Thanks for this Dave. The old transistor wasn't working and the ground on the fan header had no connection, I jumps a wire to test it and the fan ramped up to full speed. I ended up pulling a transistor from a dead motherboard I have and now the fan speed is locked at 12v, I removed the ground jumper I had. So there's something else going on just not sure where to start looking, the Xbox reads temps just fine.
  10. Is the dvd drive Philips? For what ever reason in my Xbox I can select the theme or led lights how with the Philips drive, if you close the menu and open it (might need to repeat it once or twice) they should show up. My brothers Xbox with a Samsung works fine on.
  11. Yup when I opened the Xbox up the fan was spliced into the GPU fan cable. I figured someone was just doing a 12v mod, after unsoldering it and crimping a new female fan connector I realized the header wasnt working. I even tested the fan out side of the case and tried a different fan, no luck it's definitely the fan header.
  12. Hey so I have a 1.0 and the main fan header isn't working. Can I just replace the mosfet or is there a greater issue?
  13. I think he just flipped the header. That facebook post is a bit older so it might have been an older pcb design
  14. I haven't had any luck with flashing Aladdin's to xblast. This is from one of the Facebook groups, maybe you printed the version without the fix?
