No Audio or Video


Recommended Posts

So I just installed a Aladdin xt chip today and powered on, no audio or video. Light on chip is on and light on eject button starts green and goes to green/red flashing. I cleaned it with alcohol and still nothing. Anyone know what the issue could be.

I would suggest the soldering is not up to scratch or you have a solder blob .

Best to post a pic and then we can see what may be wrong.

!st get rid or the red wire going to the transistor it's not needed

What is the red wire under the mod chip?

and  I can not see  D0 connection.

The connections on the LPC rebuild don't look the best either

The long red wire is so the led on the chip powers on and off with the power button, instead of staying on continuously. The video I watched for reference was by retro pro frank, to give you a idea of what I did.20200820_231037.thumb.jpg.af2d9af34b59fed8061c09de65b47dcb.jpg

I think my way is a ship load neater 

This is how I prep all Aladdin chips for any Xbox version

Cut the trace under the yellow line and add a link like the green line.

Have you resoldered the the connections on the PCB rebuild board? The to 2 pins don't even look soldered

The Aladdin chip is the most reliable out the there and the only time I see problems are install or bad flash both from the owner.

Will do. What does that one do?

The same as running a wire so the led is power on and off with the Xbox power.

The only pins I remove is pin 4 on a 14 pin header (12 pin non Open Xeniums) and pin 4 and 6 on a version 1.6 board.

I also don't bother with the LPC port rebuild board and use to chuck them out and I have never seen any 1/2 decinet electronics maker join two PCBs that way. When the DuoX2 chip was released it came with them and I would get 1 a month to fix because of that small board.

Any way that's my rant

It looks like you missed one.

I just put a new rebuild chip in and cut the trace. Still the same issue. I tried to run without the Aladdin xt chip and other scenarios all with the same results. It seem like it attempts to run 3x then starts flashing red and green.

I'm pretty sure this thing fraged some during the installation. Is it true that replacing the capacitors will fix this? If so can anyone send a like for the best place to purchase. It tries to load 3x then flashes red/green. 

Was the Xbox fragging before you started, I would have thought the frag will be to do with the lpc rebuild? You just need an electronics supplier for replacement caps, it depends where in the world you are, online there's Digikey, farnell, cpc farnell and a load more.

      I messed up. Was fiddling around with configmagic trying to lock the HDD on my chipped Xbox 1.6 so I can transfer and use the HDD on my softmodded Xbox. I followed this guide here: https://www.biline.ca/xbox_uxe_hd2.htm 
       I was able to update the EEPROM as stated and locked the HDD so it can be used on the softmodded Xbox. That worked fine. But now my chipped Xbox turns on but no picture or video whatsoever. I don't know what to do next...

      Hey there everyone. I watched a video on YouTube on a Modded Xbox. During the initial startup of the Xbox, it shows an animation and a custom dashboard. Does anyone know how to add the animation before the menu shows up and how to customize the menu?? I have never seen this before except for this video. Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you.
      Here is a Link to the Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uw91sVm2fkI&t=1s
      Starts at 8:03 minutes
      Thanks Again!!
