X3 Control Panel Dip Switch Button Led Issues

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I’ve just noticed that the blue leds are not lighting up on my X3 control panel bios bank switch buttons. They should light up blue when pressed in (on). Anyone come across this before? Know how I can fix it?? 

 

Ill take it apart and see if theres a lose cable cable or similar but that won’t be for a few days....

its possible it could be a broken solder connection for the switch itself. you are talking about the pro switch right? I myself have one, and have noticed flickering sometimes when pressing buttons. X3 bios even flickers bios banks sometimes doing the same thing....thats the only thing i can assume, because i just rebuilt my x3 pro switch cable.

It is the same as the pro switch but is part of the x3 control panel so o would expect the wiring to be the same. I just have none of the blue leds lighting up at all on the buttons.

Big variations between the proswitch and x3 bank switch pcbs Wiring, component locations, and trace routes for starters lol

The switch bank on the X3 control panel is basically a pro switch just mounted into the panel.

Ok thanks for that, I’m honoured and will make sure I tell my grandchildren this story on my deathbed. 

 

ON TOPIC:  I had removed the front plate to install a power led mod so I checked all the wiring. I couldn’t see any cracks in the solder joints or breaks in the wires so I just put it all back together again and hey presto it worked!! Fuck knows what caused it to not work but it’s fixed now 😃

Lol glad it's working again.

That can be a problem with some of the connectors in use today as I am sure that some of the connectors are only ment to be connected once and never disconected and reconectd again.

Then you get some company's that also glue the connectors together with anti tamper paint to really pissoff the tech working on the device.

Something similar happened to me.  I hit the solder points on the underside of the switchboard itself.  I did not see anything obvious.  Seemed to work though.  In my case, they were not completely dead to begin with.  They were not staying on consistently.

      so im working with an old 2.6 modded OG xbox, this one has some very good history and means alot to me, and was given to me by the owner of "gamer transit authority", initially we thought this wasnt the "gamer bus unit" but after cracking it open and checking some things ..IT IS!!!

      anyway im trying to breath life back into the unit it has some startup issues that ive seemingly mostly resolved, im trying to clone and backup the drive so i can toss a 2tb unit in and be done for life with it

      so heres the issue..im getting "bad block sector on hda(master) from logical block 316 though 338 on drive E:

      everything else clones over just fine, and i get a error 13 on bootup
      yes im on the 80 wire
      yes ive tryed multiple drives both IDE and sata
      yes ive googled for weeks

      my best guess is that due to the logical block issues pointing at a corruption of the original drive that i need to "replace" some of E:drives contents, what im looking for is any information on how to do that WITHOUT wiping out the history thats in this box, id like to just "patch" what i can....im just not sure of the best way to do it....im leaning tward FTP cloning out E drive if thats even possible since the new drive wont boot...
       
      looking for any help possible, even if it means building the new drive from scratch...tho i consider that a "last resort"

      So I paid to preorder an XOSVP like 7 months ago and never heard a word from Darren. I emailed him about a month later with no response. I just emailed him again like 4 days ago with no response. Has anyone dealt with this guy or does anyone have any advice on how to handle the situation?
