A few years ago, my very first xbox console got water damaged in a freak storage accident. I let it dry out for an extended period of time, made sure it was dry and turned it on (still pretty dumb I know, I was dumber then), it worked for a short time before it turned itself off. Now it just sits as a reminder of my high school days. I few days ago I was looking for a file so I switched it on, I actually forgot it had been damaged in the past (I have a lot of xboxes) It switched itself off when I went downstairs. Thinking that I had turned it off, I turned it on again to continue what I was doing and it turned off. Then I remembered why, the water damage. Anyway it is no longer important to me whether it works or not. What is important is that I had it plugged in to a powerboard/plugboard which has a quite a few other consoles plugged in. Now I don't know much about electricity but I am a bit concerned about my other consoles that were plugged into the same powerboard this xbox was using. How likely is it that my old damaged xbox damaged those other consoles? It is a 1.6 if that makes a difference and I have the standard power cable with no grounding prong. I asked this same question on the og xbox reddit but from what I have been told, this forum is the best for the more hardware related stuff. Thanks!
Brand new member, please forgive me if I do something wrong here.... I tried searching, I swear!!!!! I'm not a huge collector, but I got a big box of Xbox stuff from someone locally. I already have a modded and a stock OG Xbox, really bought his box for the controllers and games. He said he was in the military and bought his Xbox in Japan. I can't find any info online about it. Is it rare? Is it common? Are there any hardware differences? Btw, yes I combed the rare hardware thread here and didn't find anything Thanks in advance!
