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 apologize if this has been covered but I came up empty when searching. So I finally powered on my OG Xbox with X3CE and X3CP after many years. The bios was old (3294) so figured I would update. Flashed 5035 and everything is working, however for some reason when booting with the white button pressed Config Live doesn't load. Any ideas?

      Purchased a Xbox V 1.0 that has the Xecuter X3 mod chip, unit wouldn't even boot at time i received it ( sorry been otta this for like forever and just getting back into it ). After numerous trials and errors i finally got it to boot up, switch configuration on front. Anyways seems like its missing the backup that should be on the mod chip itself, doesn't seem to matter what i try cannot find it, other problem is it only stays on maybe 45 mins and shuts down, i think its a power supply issue, going to try another power supply this weekend since i do have a good replacement for this version. Other issues is cannot turn unit on with power button, only with the eject button, also another weird issue is when its first plugged in it comes on without touching any button on the front, lots of strange issues going on here, maybe someone may have a bit of insight to help resolve these problems. First thing i did was remove clock cap, had leaked a little but not bad at all, area around it got a very good cleaning and looks great

      Any condition considered, I don't need the X3 chip just the front panel. Doesn't matter if it has missing buttons or a damaged LCD. PM me with offers, thanks
