Xbox 1.2/1.3 not booting, it starts loading Xbox splash upto the Xbox Logo but ends in a load of stuttering sound

It was booting OK before I removed the 3 old capacitors near the CPU/Power connector, also the clock battery. I replaced the 3 capacitors and now get this issue (see attached video with sound stutter at the end). I have removed/replaced all 3 capacitors again, also tried mounting them on the underside of the motherboard for testing loose out of case, but get the exact same results, even doing them 1 at a time etc. I have visually checked the board front and back for solder splashes, trace rot and other abnormalities with magnifying glass, everything looks great!
I have had this issue on a previous Xbox and identified the issue to possible 2 capacitors which I replaced and it has worked fine for months after replacing.
So, this issue still does seem to be capacitor related but I've done what I can to try and fix, and would like to know if other people have had this boot issue and what it was that fixed the issue?

Thanks

Hmm. That’s odd. Does it freeze at the same point in the boot animation every time or is it at random points?

 

Might be worth going through and just recapping all the radial capacitors. You could even do it one by one or by groups and test each time.

It doesn’t get further than this, it does get shorter boots before it stops though, the more I try the shorter the boot attempt is. I’ll have to buy a full set of the smaller caps to attempt a full recap. I’ve only got the larger ones.

Well now it works! I didn't play around with any of the capacitors again.
My new thermal paste arrived, I thought I may as well remove the old stuff, apply the new. Then installed all Xbox components back in its case. Tested it and hours later its still running fine!! Softmodded it without issue.

Not sure what the issue was yesterday, but today its fixed! I'll be sure to keep it on test for the next few more days just to be sure.

One of my X3 Consoles does this. It happens about 70 percent of the time. No idea what woul be causing it. Never seen it on any other console...
