Hey everyone, I purchased a original Xbox off eBay, it looks brand new, and hasn't been opened, all stickers intact. Only issue is when it powers on, red and green flashing led and a error code 12 on screen. Online suggests it's a DVD drive issue, bummer. It looks to be a Xbox 1.6 and has gotten very little use (if any at all, still has a brand new smell to it, spotless inside and out and not a spec of dust) is there anything I could try to fix the system? Could I try recapping the DVD drive board? I hate to buy another drive off eBay, as the only ones I found cost more than the system I got (including shipping), I have a mod chip on the way as well, if that might help
Thanks in advance!
My Xbox always gets stuck when the Microsoft logo pops up below the big Xbox logo in the center of the screen. How could I boot into the dashboard?
I softmodded it in 2012 and could've easily messed up somewhere.
Games and unofficial DVDs work just fine, luckily.
Thanks in advance
I softmodded my xbox and decided to try the tsop mod.
Followed a guide up untill the part where it had me burn a hexen cd. Instead I found this Please login or register to see this link.
Unfortunately trying to skip burning a DVD has resulted in my xbox booting to a black screen.
I see "loading ind-bios" before the screen goes black.
Looking online I found some suggestions to boot into hexen disc (so I ended up having to burn it anyways) then run the clear files option.
None of this worked though.
Any ideas on what I can do to get my dashboard back?
