480i Resolution Fix?

Recommended Posts

I have a few soft modded xboxs and have mostly been using my 1.6 as of late. It looked perfect in all resolutions on all games that worked. But when I switched to one of my older xboxs, I think 1.2, it had major vertical lines when the xbox boots up in 480i and while playing games at those resolutions. Is it the xbox or is it software related? Is there a fix? all capacitors look good.

hi, can the capacitors also leak from below

Yes. That's how the clock cap leaks. Out the bottom next to the printed circuit board instead of the vent on the top.

I believe I read last night that holding down both thumbsticks and triggers for a second on the main dash forces the system in 480p mode, try giving that a shot

So it definitely seems to be a problem with 480i output on that system. Does any one have any clue which capacitors would need to be replaced in regards to 480i issues? I tried forcing 480i with that 'hold triggers and thumbs in', on original dash. It switched only original dash to 480p it did nothing for my games on the hard drive. Any clue as where to look would be helpful, pulling my hair out here. I am capped at 5 messages a day thanks for the reply's everyone!

Here is a photo of the lines I am talking about. It is not noticeable at higher resolutions. Just 480i.

I have tested same game, same tv, same cables, different xbox. It looks perfect on that xbox.

On a version 1.6 I would replace the 5 larger Cap's near the power connector 1st.

As for the capping on you number of post have a look in the store tab $5 or $10 usd membership.

A capacitor can look fine but it may have dried out and gone open circuit and if that's the case it may as well not be there.

To test you really should remove from the PCB and connect to a LCR meter as testing in circuit can and will give incorrect readings.

The caps circled in red I would definitely replace, If the caps in purple are silver like the one in this board if you can replace but that's up to you I would.

And 100% you need to remove the cap in the yellow if it's still there

This was removed from a version 1.4 yesterday.

On the  left is what it looked like in the board and right is the bottom of the cap.

And the 4 traces along the front where corroded to the point the Xbox looked to have a dead power supply .

      Hi,
      I am unable to display in 720p thru component cable. Using modern 4K TV with component port
      480p / 720p are enabled in MSdash, Unleash X and XBMC4Gamers (booting 4gamers by default)
      The cable is OEM xbox 360 repurposed to fit OGxbox. (mode 2 and 3 enabled)
      I have an open xenium with LCD that displays the current resolution. I tried to boot from different bios
      Ind.5004 and X3.5035 seems to be locked to 480i
      Ind.5004 and X3.5035 (forced480p) gives me 480p but nothing else.
      While I understand that not all games are compatible with progressive scan, the dashboard and apps should run at 720p or am I missing something?
      Thanks

      I'm trying to set my system start up in 720p.  If I go to the MS dashboard from UnleashX menu, change the settings, do a soft reboot UnleashX will come back up in the display settings I've set.  
      If I power off the system and power back on these settings don't save.  The only settings that do stick are what I set in the UnleashX dashboard settings.  The MS Dashboard reverts back.
      Any suggestions? 
       
       
      Not sure if relevant but:
      -Using a Pound Technologies HDMI cable
      -Softmodded xbox using rocky5 migration to sata and upgraded ide cables
      -Just removed my clock capacitor.

      Ok, so this eBay seller (who doesn't want to share his secrets oddly enough), says that his xbox's are the only ones available with 720p or 1080p.  I know there's a way...I can't find it because I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for or more importantly how to search it.
      here are the links:
