  1. At the hard drive 4 pin connector the black wires a 0 volt (ground ) and the yellow wire is 12 volt are the only connections you need.

    It should not blow and transistors on the main board.

    Hey guys! My friend was looking into getting a pre modded (Whether it be hard or soft modded) xbox to play with me and a group of others! I was wondering, Is there any place in particular that's best to buy these from? Is there a forum section here for buying, or a website that's very good for buying these kinds of xboxs? naturally my first thought is ebay, but I wanted to know what some of you guys think! ^^

    Edit: Just realized, sorry if this is the wrong section, meant to do it in general discussion, not the collection showcase ^^;

    It would help people with a Xbox for sale if you add your location as shipping can be a killer.

    Hey all. Currently having issues with my xbox. Have opened it 3 times now to re-examine it, and I have NO idea what I need to do to get it to turn on again. Here's a video I made showing the mobo, and explaining everything I've done and checked. Please let me know what you think, I'd love to do whatever I can to avoid needing to buy another box. Literally any help at all is greatly appreciated, please let me know. I read around some more and I've read it Might be a blown transistor, (As this seems to be a common problem with 1.6 mobos, which I believe mine is, last time I checked. Was a couple years ago, tho I'm pretty confident it's a 1.6.) or that I might need to solder new capacitors, or new cable, etc. Man, I'm just wondering if these might just be too old to buy anymore. Seems like nowadays they just break out of nowhere, and no matter how many I buy and replace, they just break down anyways :/ Any way to prevent that from happening? Is there any kind of scene out there to completely overhaul these things to make them actually last longer than a few years? Please let me know what I should do, and Thanks in advanced! 
    Here's a video I recorded to showcase the issue I'm encountering: 

    The 3 caps next to the CPU and the 1(the 2 caps) next to the 20 pin power connector need replacing.

    All capacitors are going to fail and they are the weakest component in any electronics.

  4. You need to change the video to NTSC from Pal and you will also need a component AV lead.

    I suggest using the OGXbox 2021 v1.5.4 installer disk as there is a live apps section that can be used to change the video settings.

    You can download a copy from here  https://1fichier.com/dir/mX1kipIz

    I also suggest you use a brand name DVD-r like the Verbatim DVD-r and set the write speed as slow as possible, Not many OG-Xbox DVD drives will read a DVD+r or DVD-rw disks.

    It's still working :) gonna be a pain having to enter the time every time I wanna use it tho lol :)

     

    thanks for the advise m8

    The clock cap would not have been working any and even from new the Xbox would only keep the time for hours anyway, As long as the AC in is connected and it's powered on at the wall it will keep time.

     

    If you use xbmc4gamers and the Xbox is connected to your home network it will set the clock from the net on boot.

    Another problem I have is the LPC pads are already filled with solder

    The version 1.0 boards came with the LPC port holes filled with solder.

    Apply fresh 60/40 solder with extra flux paste then you can use solder wick to clear the holes.

    detachable TSOPs

    A detachable Thin Small Outline Package?

    The bios chip is just a eeprom and it happens to be a Thin Small Outline Package size.

    There used to be a computer fair regularly near me and a guy would do this for you while you waited.

    I have seen that as well many years ago at computer fairs there was always someone mod-chipping the OG Xbox and PS1's along as people doing PC repairs.

  9. It's sounding like a solder issue on the LPC port.

    Also have the capacitors next to the heat sink been replaced?

    You probably should post some pic of the solder work. 

    If you upload the pics to a share site like postimages.org  and then add the link here.

    i tried the pin, but no luck

    You may need to solder the wires as per the 3 wire pic that way you can select the different banks to try.

    I simply cut the trace . No further soldering of DO 

    That's correct there is no need for the D0 wire from the mod chip.

     

    The more I read this post it's sounding like the bios in bank one is corrupt and could probably be fixed with a re-flash but with out been able to boot a install disk it's going to be a pain.

    If you can get you hands on a Xbox that has a modchip or even borrow a modchip  so you can load a install disk you can then hot swap the modchip to re-flash it.

    Boot the Xbox with the new chip

    Now load a bios flash program like Xblast and get to the point where it asks you to confirm to write the new bios file.

    Now without switching off the Xbox you unplug the new modchip and carefully plug the old chip on the pin header.

    Now commit to the bios flash.

    I am having an issue where there are artifacts all over the screen and the video cuts out every second to a blue screen . At the top right of my tv is something that says : AV, NTSC this happens in games and the menu. This makes the original Xbox I have unplayable , any ideas? Or is it gone

     

    i have tested with Multiple av cables, power cables and tv’s. Same issue

     

    dash version : .39.0528A Build 584

     

    Wish I could attach a 4 second video to explain it better 

    You can upload the video to a file share or you tube and post the link here.

    I have seen the main filter cap's ( the ones next to the GPU/CPU)cause that issue as well.

    Is the Xbox hard modded or soft modded?

    What video output have you set in the M$ dash?

    What AV lead Component or Composite ?

    Try disabling  720, 1080

  13. If you want the  chip always on with a DuoX2 you link the BT on the modchip to 3.3volt (pin9) and then connect the D0 on the main board to ground or the D0 on the mod chip if the Xbox is a 1.0-1.4 , On the 1.6 I cut the lframe trace as apparently grounding the D0 on a 1.6 could cause damage.

    Also the high-pitched sound seemed to stop after about 39 total minutes of running (or I have gone deaf)

    I suspect the HDD is failing.

    Try and power on the Xbox with the HDD unplugged when cold and see if the noise is still there.

    Resoldered all points no change, red light flashes on chip no picture . Bank 1 has green light on eject button and when pressed flashes green but won’t open disc draw. Bank two frags red and green however disk draw will open . Any ideas.

    On a DuoX2 the red led flashing on the mod chip normally means the chip is powered on.

    And normally when you press eject the Xbox boots the original BIOS from the mother board and power on with the power button enables the mod chip.

    I think Bank 1 is a 1.6 bios and bank 2 is 1.0-1.4 only bios.

     

    It would help if you uploaded some pic's of the LPC solder work.

    If I redo bios does it effect the hdd 

    You should not need to redo the bios, I would check the soldering as MadMartigan suggested

  18. What voltages have you got on the Gray and Green wires?

     

    On the green wire you should have around 3 volt

    The Gray wire (the one closest to the heat sink ) should get around 3 volt when you press the power or eject button.
