Pulling Clock Cap From Crystal XBoX.


Recommended Posts

G'day guys,

Just a quick one, Today I aquired a Crystal XBOX, I was under the impression they were all 1.6 but after I soft mod'd its ID'ing it as a 1.4?
From what I have read this may mean its actually a 1.5 as it was manufactured in 2004.

So I know I need to pull the clock cap (which appears dead anyway) But I have opened her up and thankfully no damage to the board that I can see but its a different cap layout to the ones I have pulled before.
Or is this actually a 1.6 and I can leave it be?

So can you confirm its this cap I need to pull out?

As you can see the board is totally filthy so tomorrow I intend on pulling the cap and giving it a good blow out :)

Cheers.

Hello,

please take some time to clean the board, the clocxk capacitor has already leaked. Use IPA, first remove the board from case, to properly clean it.

bye

Dont worry I gave it a pretty good clean with IPA.
The machine in general was absolutely filthy (pic did not do it justice) Thankfully the acid leakage was minimal but the dust was stuck to the board pretty good!

I also replaced the thermal paste for the CPU/GPU.

      Hi. I am introducing myself in the forum.  I am trying to bring to the life my xbox 1.6 with Tuscany power supply that looks dead, the xbox do not power on and doesn't do anything when try to power on. No measurement in the famous T2 transistor.  There is no corrosion in my board and caps seems to be ok, so ... what is next to test?

      I would like to see the repairment guide but is not available for me at this point for newbie, so I ask you.

      Thank you all!

      Hello OG Xbox forums, I've worked myself into a pickle again.
      The short version:
      I need to get a file off of an HDD that throws an error 16 (won't boot, Corrupted dash) but still works. Can I get it off using a second Xbox and a file manager, or do I need to buy an adapter and use Xpolorer 360 to get it off?
       
      The long Version: 
      While preparing to TSOP flash my Xbox, I was copying saves over from the had drive onto a memory card for safe keeping. However when that didn't work with the UnleashX dash I tried to switch over to the default dash. This corrupted the files and now the Xbox throws an error 16 whenever it tries to boot from the HDD. Since it is an error 16 I can't boot from disc since the Xbox preforms the time check before it checks the DVD drive, and since the Xbox was only softmoded I can't just format a new drive and throw it in. From what I've found online I can use CHIMP and my working TSOP'd Xbox to recover the dash files on this second one, however I need the EEPROM.bin file. Can I get it off using a file manager that can detect both drives using the working TSOP'd Xbox, can CHIMP find the EPROM.bin file on the slave HDD and recover from that, or do I need to purchase an IDE adapter to connect my Drive to a PC via XPLORER 360 and then transfer it over to the XBOX?  
      Thanks.

      Just checking to see if there are any devs that would like to look into any of these games that have the source available. I know some have already been ported to xbox, however there are quite a few that would be interesting to see running.

      Here is the original thread where I came across it. Thanks to Anthony for bringing it up.
