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 😃

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.

      I bought a used Xbox. It seems to be functioning. I removed the clock capacitor. However I found these capacitors to be slightly corroded. I cleaned it lightly with Isopropyl alcohol. (Not sure if that was a good idea). What should I do? Should I replace these capacitors. I believe this is a 1.2 revision. It was made Oct 2003. So not sure. By the way let that be known in case it hasn't happened to anyone. That other capacitors may be starting to go bad.

      Hi all, 
      I'm looking to seel a crystal xbox with pink xecuter 3 modchip and crystal pro switch.
      All buttons are present on the pro switch.
      It's only got a 40gb hdd but does have coin ops on there. It's in full working order but I dont have a controller for it.
      I'm looking for a valuation with a view to selling on so if you could give me a price I'd be grateful. I'm based in the UK, thanks.

      I have used xboxhdm23 beta by Rocky5 to create an xbox hdd from scrtach using the nulled eeprom from my xbox. The program also copied over the files for the c drive which in this case are the installer files for Rockys softmod.
      When i put the drive in the xbox and boot it up all i get is an error 13 (dash error), i have verified that the files are indeed in the c drive on the hdd but the installer (xboxdash.xbe) does not load.
       
      Have i done something wrong somewhere?
       
      Also, as the eeprom was nulled that was used to lock this drive,  in theory this hdd should be able to be installed in any xbox with a nulled eeprom, is that correct??
