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.

Are both set to the same (NTSC/PAL) and the same resolution enabled 480, 720p?

 

Cheers

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

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!

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?

      Hello,
      I am Deniz from Germany and I am in the Modding Scene since back in 2008. Since I started my Twitch-Channel where I mod stuff I choose the OG-XBOX as first Projekt. So most XBOXes I had where 1.6 ones and eventually back in 2012-2013 an friend gave me his old XBOX and I never got too look inside.
      As the Clock Capacitor is a ticking time bomb, yesterday I removed it and it became clear... my XBOX is kind of an unicorn as it is an 1.5 XBOX with Aladdin Advanced-Chip and GND + 3.3V have been rebuilt. Well I plan on doing an OpenXenium-Mod and building an ogx360. So I registered myself here as most of the OG-Sources are down nowadays.
       
      Cheers.

      Hello, I am stuck in a pickle and hope someone can help.
      I just TSOP flashed in my Xbox and it is now stuck in a boot loop. The Xbox logo appears along with the Microsoft logo and then the system resets to do it again. I first installed the rocky 5 softmod, used the bios checker disc to make sure it was ready to flash (it displayed "TSOP?") and then used the TSOP flash mode of the extras disc to flash the system. everything went like normal and then after the BIOS was flashed and the system rebooted it just kept rebooting itself. It is at the 3:56 mark in the attached video
      . I'm new at this and out of my element here, please help.

      I have a backup of my entire softmod/og xbox hdd that i did when i did the softmod on it. It's in a .iso file. It contains everything on it from c,d,f partitions and has the backup of the eeprom in it. My evolutionx dash, skins, few programs like dvdtoxbox. I softmoded it with the sid 5.0 and game exploit, had Evolutionx dash. The hdd i upgraded to 360gb hdd. I must have made the backup before i started burning games to the drive. I have no clue what i did with the original drive, i probably chucked it as i had the backup.
      How do i take this backup .iso and put it on a new hdd to put in my xbox as there doesn't seem to be any tutorials on doing this specifically?

      So bit of background;
      I'm not a noob to softmodding og xbox's, but last time i did a softmod was before the rocky5 method existed.
      My xbox is stuck on and will only boot to the xbox dash after an error 21. This happened after i accidentally clicked on connect to xbox live on call of duty and it updateed. I read somewhere there are 2 files you need to delete once a game is copied to hd in order to prevent this, but i can't remember what they are? Any help there would be good to.

      I cannot ftp into the hdd anymore as ftp won't find the console. Also i tried burning the Hexen2018 to disk, but that won't boot, and have since learned you need softmod dash for it to boot so no luck there.
      Next i tried xboxhdm23usb beta3 as i have a few spare external 2.5 dives in external enclosures. Only thing i did here was put the eeprom in root folder and tried basic build as is first to see if it will work. But again no luck. It finds the hdd's, but keeps coming up with -h and -d errors  when i choose option 5 or xboxhd program.


      Can anyone help?
