1.6 Powers On Then Immediately Powers Off

Recommended Posts

Attempting to show my grandson my daughters Bad*** Xecuter 3 Mod Original Xbox. I attempted to power on several times and different ways ( tapping quickly holding down power button and using the disk button) the unit would immediately shut down. The Xbox played fine a year ago. It was unplugged sitting on a shelf. So I opened her up and  found some swollen capacitors and replaced them. While in there I also re applied paste to GPU and CPU. I tried again to power her up and same result. I'm lost at this point if any of you guys have an idea.

Thanks from East Texas

Hi bassinhuntin

It sound like a power supply problem and possibly solder joints have started to fail. Is it possible to post some picks.

 

Cheers

AS soon as I get a chance I will share some pics. I had already put it all back together hoping I could find someone to work on it for me.

I would have a look at it for you but the postage would be a killer to and from Australia.

2MB restrictions is a pain but heres one. Unfortunately its only letting me upload this pic. I have taken several but restrictions I am limited. Maybe tomorrow I can upload another one. Now if I try to delete this one it only lets me upload a tiny picture.

Use smaller and lower resolution pictures (96dpi is all that is likely needed) and they should not get anywhere near 2MB unless they're vast.

Just open whatever you have in paint.net or another graphics program you know how to use and resize down - save as optimised PNG or JPG.

I almost wish that had been the problem because now we're back to square one.

You've posted this on other forums with more shots of the top of the MB, would be a good idea to post some of those or new ones here too.

The sort of problem described sounds like a PSU one as SS_Dave suggested. Something is heating up very quickly and the Xbox shuts down ASAP.

Maybe the caps you replaced had already leaked and damaged some traces - but finding the culprit could be like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Hi bassinhuntin

Can you post some pic's of the PSU as the main board look ok.

I had a version 1.6 that was doing the same last night. It would start to boot then shutdown and in my case the removing the DVD drives yellow power and IDE leads fixed it, good thing I had a no DVD bios.

There is some solder joints on the power supply that I would resolder but I don't think that's the full problem and for me I would take 5 - 10 minutes and  run an iron over the whole board.

Failing that you may need to beg, borrow or steal a version 1.6 power supply to test you main board.

 

What happens if you boot the Xbox with no dvd drive and no hard drive?

I already purchased a new psi couple years ago and acts same. With just MB hooked up acts same. I checked the transistor also but it was 3.6 volts. 

As I have a 1.6 open just now here is the voltage reading from it.

and just in case it's a switch problem if you disconnect the yellow harness from the front panel and temporary short the pin 1 and 2 it should boot up.

 

aAlso test the two pin from the power/eject and when not pressed should read 3.3 volt and 0 volt when pressed.

My 1.0 hard modded Xbox did this when I installed new ribbon cables. I simply unplugged the ribbon cables and the power to the disk drive and carefully hooked them all back up. My Xbox booted up just fine after that.

Unfortunately I’ve tried that also. Not new cables but plugged and unplugged. It should run without dvd or hard drive I was thinking. But thanks for the comment. I’m almost ready to get another 1.6 motherboard with hard drive and remod again. 🤨

At this point if anyone that would like to help me get this thing going for my grandson that would be awesome and of course would pay you for your time and shipping to and from. I have over 200 games for this system haste to see it go to waste.

      Hi, I bought a broken XBOX version 1.6 (the seller says that softmod is installed on the XBOX), when I turn on the console it blinks three times green and then green and red (no signal on TV). I need to find out why it doesn't work. Can anyone help? Video: Please login or register to see this link.

      Hey guys, 
       
      sold one of my chipped boxes, shipped her properly and she worked before, now we have the 3 times start and then red/orange flashing.
      All solderjoints were resoldered without and change in behaviour ...
      Any ideas ? Dead ?

      Hey guys! 
      I made a video guide on how to install / setup the OpenXenium modchip on a 1.6 OG xbox including an LPC rebuild installation.
      These chips are not much more than the Alladins prebuilt and significantly cheaper if you want to build one yourself. They're way more feature rich as well and support multiple bios' + LCD support. I'd highly recommend these chips my dudes.
      Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions.
