I have a version 1.0 xbox that was my first attempt at a mod however I did not get that far. When I first got it, the drive would not open and it would power up when plugged in. I broke the seal on the case and had a look inside. The clock capacitor threw-up over itself and drained over the board. I removed the capacitor and cleaned up the mess. Also had to repair some traces on the bottom of the board. I could then turn the xbox on and off and also reset it. I cleaned up the Thomson Drive and got that to open and read disks. Was even playing Burnout (badly scratched) from disk as well as Battlefront. Then everything changed. Now when I power the xbox, it will make three attempts to start. I can watch the two cooling fans start and stop. On the third attempt, the fans tend to keep running, however sometimes the unit powers off. Front leds blinking red and green. I can hear and feel the DVD and hard drive winding up. At no time do I get video. There have been no hard or soft mods to this xbox. A general review of the board does not show any bad capacitors or fried resistors. I have not found any additional bad traces, however I can give it another check with the meter. Any suggestions for troubleshooting, or is this unit kaput and ready for part supply?
I updated two games, counter strike and mech assualt. As expected my trainers no longer work with the game updates. my xbox is soft modded and i can access the hdd via ftp. How can I go about removing them? thank you in advance for any help, it is appreciated.
