Info About Cleaning a Xbox Shell


Recommended Posts

not certain if this is the right section to ask this question in since it really isn't a repair but don't know where else to post. one of my xbox's i bought to repair has something on it that almost looks like spots of dried mud but it isn't cleaning off like mud so i don't know what it is. i have tried denatured alcohol and goof off but neither are very effective. those cleaners lighten the spots but don't remove them. what is a good cleaner that won't hurt the black plastic(and the green xbox jewel in the center)?

It might be better to post some pics of the stains/marks you are trying to remove.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

The one with CT on it would be ok for a sand and paint Xbox.

The white spots look a bit like paint maybe and the other one you could try some car plastic restoration prouducts.

You could try something like this on the cloudy looking one

The modchip has since been removed and the TSOP has been flashed along with a ram upgrade.

I give the metal a light sand with some wet and dry then primer and paint, For the crystals I use a bright silver and the others gloss black

      Hello.
      I wanted to upgrade RAM on my Xbox. First I TSOPed Cromwell inside and it booted. Then I soldered 4 RAM chips from China and Xbox started reboots and showed errors: Green, Green, Green50%-Red50%. After which I desoldered new RAM, but FRAG was still there.
      I guessed something was wrong with TSOP chip. When I got this Xbox it had some noname modchip from 2003 which I can't even guess clone what of. Anyway, error code switched to: Green, Green, Orange50%-Red50%. Which is RAM error, I guess.
      Now I think I should have tested it with each new RAM chip soldered.
      I only left original 4 RAM chips inside right now, but it still FRAGs.
      What can I do to repair it?

      Modified XBox done in 2003-2004.
      I had my XBox modified in 2003-2004 with a new hard drive and fan installed that allowed me to play every game made up to that time from Nintendo,Sega, so on and so on.  Trying to get it back up and running but it’s still doing the same thing it started to do back in 2006.  I have a separate circuit and toggle switch on the outside that would allow me to play regular Xbox games and then I would turn on the toggle switch to play off the added hard drive.  Now all it does is power on and off before just turning the on button red!  Anybody remember modifying a Xbox back then??   Thanks for any feedback
