  1. Perfect, this is exactly what I needed. For an update, I removed the time capacitor with my soldering iron, and cleaned the front and back of the board with IPA and cotton swabs. I cleaned the ADM1032 multiple times and used extra IPA on it. Then I put it all together and tried to turn the xbox on. Basically the same issue occurs, however it takes a little while longer for the orange light to display. If I leave the A/V cable out and power it on, it will first flash green and orange indicating that the A/V cable is unplugged, but will then go into its usual blinking orange and shutting on and off sequence. This wasn't the case before, so maybe I'm getting somewhere with cleaning it. I'm going to try to clean it one more time, this time with a tooth brush, and see if it fixes the issue. If not, I will order a replacement part for the ADM1032 and use the video you posted as a guide. Thanks again!
  2. Thanks for the responses. I cleaned the ADM1032 and the area around the ADM1032, including the area around the clock capacitor, with 91% isopropyl alcohol with qtips until there was no longer any residue getting on the qtip anymore. I let it dry and then plugged it back in and was having the same issue. I still haven't removed the clock capacitor so I'm going to do that next and clean around the area again. I'm starting to think the ADM1032 is dead. Is there any way to check that (with a multimeter or something) before buying a new chip and replacing it? Also, does anyone have a manual or video on how to replace this chip?
  3. Hey everyone, I'm having a problem with an original xbox that will turn on, with a solid green light for a second, then turn itself off. Then back on with an orange blinking light, then turn itself off and on again until finally staying on with a blinking orange light with it's fan running what I think is full power (haven't confirmed this). I can open the disc tray when in this state, but I can't power the xbox off unless I unplug the power from the back. I opened up the xbox. I believe it's a v1.2 motherboard. It was in pretty good condition I thought considering the original owner said it sat in a closet for the past decade or so. This xbox was not modded. I read that an orange blinking light could mean the xbox was overheating, which would explain the high fan speed. So I removed the old thermal paste, and added new thermal paste, put it back together, plugged it in, and the same issue is happening. I have tried a brand new A/V cable and power cord that I bought on amazon and that didn't seem to make a difference. Does anyone know what an orange blinking light and this sequence of powering on and off mean? I can't find good documentation on it anywhere. I'm also looking to try anything else at this point if you have any recommendations. Here is a link to a video of the symptoms described above and some pictures of the montherboard. Thanks for any help in advance! https://imgur.com/a/7hMZWFn?
