Hello, I bought an OG v1.1 recently and worked just fine, it came with an Aladdin (I don't know what model, but assume is an old one). The chip doesn't worked so I softmodded and left the chip in its place. After a few weeks playing the xbox simply shutdown in the middle of a Mario Party gameplay and when try to turn it on it tried to boot from the modchip (I think it activates holding the power button for a few seconds). I though it was the CPU overheating, so increase the fan potency (x3), replace the thermal paste and remove the clock capacitor finding little to no corrosion in the board but quite a few components rusted, which I cleaned. When I tried to play again it was even worse, it shutdown more often than before and when I turn it off the thing turn on again trying to boot from the modchip. Then I check for trace corrosion and there was nothing visible, but made the bypass for the 4 traces either, nothing new happened. Maybe the modchip was the problem, right? Well, no. After removing it, the only difference was that it booted normally. Then I remembered that the freaking fan was on x3, and put it back to x1, since then no more unexpected turn offs or ons, it works as good as before. I came here to ask the experts: this makes any sense at all?
Hey guys! Got a bit of a weird one here, as usual in the Repair subforum I guess. Buddy of mine had been begging me to set him up with a couple consoles to system link at home, so on the promise that he’d play Doom 3 through with me I just let him walk with them. 15 minutes after he gets to his place and sets everything up, I get a picture from him with the console showing Error 6 on boot. I believe this is incorrect HDD key, which isn’t much of an issue as I knew better than to let a system out the door without backing up its keys. Here’s the rub: I was playing Halo on this very same console for hours before I got it to him. In fact, I’d left it running overnight to FTP stuff onto. So I know for a fact this console worked great pretty much until it left my possession. I’m gonna get it back tomorrow, but I’m the meantime i was wondering if you guys could help me figure out why this happened in the first place because I’m really not convinced the keys are wrong. It ran for at least 12 hours straight before I sent it off. What gives, bois?
