Wobbly Video From 1.0 XBox. Running Out of Ideas On What Could Be Wrong.


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! This is my first post, so apologies if it’s formatted incorrectly. I’m currently having a tough time trying to diagnose what could be causing my Xbox to output a wobbly video signal as seen here.

 

I’ve tried

-swapping power supplies

-replacing the 5 caps near the cpu

-giving the board and console a deep clean

 

I’m thinking maybe it’s a grounding issue? Or perhaps the video encoding chip is about to die? Honestly I’m at a loss. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you guys.

Hey guys! Thank you both for the suggestions. I ended up trying to reflow the av connector, no dice. Triple checked resolutions too. At this point I just began replacing caps and testing after each. This fixed the issue, although none of them look buldged and I don’t see any leakage.

These are the caps I swapped. Thanks again for the help guys. I’ve only gotten into the original Xbox and soldering this past month, and I’ve been having a blast. This community is amazing!

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

that pic doesn't look like one of the ones behind the gpu. didn't he say he changed the ones behind the gpu and it didn't fix it?

      It has literally been over 10 years since I've played it. One of the bootup screens says "Xecutor2" at the bottom, so that tells me that much at least.
      My main question is the three (3) dip switches on the front of the console. Someone else installed it for me, and I forget what each of them does.
      I think that the left-most one controls whether or not the modchip is active; you wanted to toggle that one off if you ever went onto XBox Live, I think.
      Can anyone help?

      Greetings everyone. Here's the situation: both my xboxes' dvd drives died. One is a thomson which receives power,but won't read the disks; then there's the philips one which doesn't even get recognized. I have one of those lg drives for pc that can be adapted to work as a new xbox dvd drive, but i miss the yellow power cable to attach it to the mobo. So my idea was to get it from the power/eject buttons. Does anybody have already attempted this and some tips?Is it even possible?(i cannot get ahold of a newcable for experimenting for cheap,so imstuck with this). My idea was to build like a couple of buttons to short the pins on the connectors on the motherboard in order to prompt the power/eject switches(don'tcare about leds, i only care of a good functioning xbox). Thanks in advance.

      A friend gave this modded Xbox but didn't know much about it.  I've had soft modded ones. but don't know much about the hard ones myself either.
      It has a larger hard drive.  When you turn it on it gives the 09 error and ring flashes red and yellow.  Someone told me that button should be held on the controller when you turn on the Xbox but isn't sure which ones.  Would that cause the 09 error?  
      Thanks for any help.
