Lifted Traces? Red and Green Flashing Led.

Recommended Posts

So I tried to Tsop my Original v1.0 Xbox and I think I lifted the traces.  Now it tries to boot 3 times and then boots with flashing red and green LEDs. No audio/video.

 

Is there anyway I can fix this?  Alternate traces?

It appears R7D2 is missing it sould be a 10K resistor.

Replace that 1st and then see if it works ok then we will talk about fixing the rest.

 

Cheers

Any suggestion as to where to find one?  In my search I see a bunch of 10k resistors but all the ones I see are =/-5%.

That will work.

Shops around here won't sell 1 the smallest pack is 8 and sells for whopping 0.55c

You only need the small wattage 1/8 watt or less type but what ever you can get will work.

What country are you in?

just so you are aware that soldering a 1mm X .5mm component is not easy for learners.

It may be easyer to get a resistor that's got leads and use that.

I can post some pics on that later.

I have been working in electronics for 30 plus years and soldering a resitor 1mm X 0.5mm with the right soldering iron is asking for more trouble.

I would also recomend you get some solder flux paste you will only need a very small amount like this

That amount will be more than you nead.

Solder wise some thing like this.

Some of this is also handy to have to remove excess solder it listed as sold out but try some ware else.

I will do some picks later with how to fix it.

Any more questions don't be afraid to ask.

If your good you maybe able to solder it directly to the pads but i will take some pick of how to do it for beginners.

You will also need a offcut of multi-strand wire and some hotmelt glue or superglue.

All right  don't shoot me down in flames this is done this ruff and ready way because not every one is proficient in soldering.

1st prep your resistor and wire. You will notice that I have singled out 2 strands from the hookup wire.  Pre tin the wire strands and the leads of the resistor (tinning means apply a small amount of solder to the ends).657335145_resistor1.jpg.16b8a0d887d5a5f1028499be3340ecfa.jpg

2nd Solder the strands to the resistor. Then trim the strands to about 8mm(approx 5/16)

3rd Now apply flux to the points you want to solder to and tin them.

4th Now you can solder the strands to the pre tinned pads on the board.

 You should notice that I have linked from R7D2 to R7D3 with one of the leads getting ready for the TSOP Flash.

Yes the resistor is still on this board just pretend it's not there as I will undo work this later it's just to show you.

Also while your at it add a link R7R3 on the bottom.

Make sure that the leads are lifted up from the board a bee's dick(miniscule amount)so's not to short to any thing else.

As this is the top of the PCB you can now test the Xbox to ensure that it now boots corectly.

If all is good apply a drop of super glue or hotmelt glue to the resistor only not the solder joints. That way if need be you can still resolder the joints. It is ok for the resistor body to be glued to the board.

I have suggested this method to try and not cause any more damage to the board.

I hope this helps and if there is any thing your not sure about just ask.

Please let me know how you get on with the repair.

If your game after you have repaired the board and it's working post a pic of your work.

Yes, Dave is awesome.  He's been super helpful.

 

And a little update,  I'm still waiting on the resistors to arrive,  but I decided to try my luck with the 1.1 I also have.  But instead of trying to solder it,  I bought one of those conductive ink pens from Amazon.  Got it on the first try.  Flashed my bios and I plan on ordering a bigger SATA hard drive.   I have the IDE to SATA converter already and once I have the bigger hard drive I can start loading it up.

      Hi - I have an unlocked SATA 500GB xbox drive that is nearly full with games, emulators and the like.  I want to make a backup copy of the drive using Raw Copy - any advice or instructions on how to do this?  I have a PC with a spare HDD slot and and an external drive caddy.  Any advice greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

      I recently got a green xbox and want to sell my old black xbox.  I want to remove the 500GB sotmodded hard drive and replace it with the original 8GB.  I know how to do that but I want to be able to use the 500GB drive in my Green xbox - how do I do this?  I don't mind formatting the 500GB drive and starting afresh.  I have an IDE PC if that's any use.
       
      Any help greatly appreciated

      So yes guys, that is my question.
      What's up with my Xbox? It is not keeping the time and date, not only if I unplug it, but only if I turn it off and then on again, it goes back to 2004 😮
       
      Things is, I have a 1.6 version of the Xbox, with Hynix Ram, softmodded. And I looked for any battery and there is no battery, it has a yellow capacitor that it supposed to keep the date and time.
      And it is in great looking condition, but what's wrong? Why is not keeping the time? Could I fix it?
       
      I am leaving a picture of my motherboard. Thanks for any feedback!
