I plan to light up a clear jewel when the xbox is in stand by with one or two led's.

I searched the web, found a pic (some weeks ago and forgot where i found it) which say nothing to me. So maybe some could help me out here with a simple drawing or a picture for non electricians?

On a version 1.6 all the orange wires at the 20 pin power plug a 5 volt all the time.

I am not sure what you are ting to use the from PSU via D2 for

I think nothing because it's not my schematic. I found that but can't remeber where. Otherwise is would search in that topic for a more non electrician explanation how to wire that up. But because i can't remember from where i found that schematic and a google search dosn't delivered anything about standby LED on classic xboxes, i decidet to open a topic because it's maybe interesting for others too.

I remember reading somewhere people were using the red eject led at 1/2 brightness as a standby light on the Xbox

Forget about any scematic and built it on your own. Its VERY simple. Just take a + from a wire of the PSU that ALWAYS gives power(wich one depends on the PSU)connect it to a resistor for the LED,after the resistor go to one NC connection of a relay,then the other end of the NC relay goes to the anode of the LED and finally the cathode of the LED to ground. After that Connect the coil pins of the relay to the PSU but on wires that give power when the xbox is ON. That way,when you open up the xbox,the relay will power ON and open the circuit for the LED,switching it off. When you power off the xbox,the relay will power off and close the circuit,giving power to the LED

Wish you luck and a good day/night

It's a nice idea but i will light up a cleared jewel with one or maybe two red LED's (depends on how it looks) when the xbox is off. But if you have some more infomations about that i may would use that on my crstal xbox. :)

Ok, thats a language me as a hi skilled non professional electrician understand. ;)

Like Dave already worte on the 1.6, which i use here, all of the yellow wires are always 5v. Which seams to make things easyer. I have use conrad (german electric store) for research about a relay and, if i guess right, this one would do the job. It's a "Please login or register to see this link. " (There is also a version with pcb : https://www.conrad.de/de/p/tru-components-relaisplatine-bestueckt-1-st-rel-pcb4-1-1-wechsler-5-v-dc-1570052.html which maybe is a little overkill). SO i will get one of these and try my luck. :)

Thanks for your help SakisTheDrifter.

A relay get with the times it's 2020 not 1920 I would you a PNP transistor over a relay.

Something like this should do the job and for 2 LEDS a BC327 is rated at 800ma or a BD138 is rated to 1000ma(1 amp)

Link the base to the 5 volt switched on the HDD connector via a 1k resistor

Thanks for disencouraging me from trying to help here. All i wanted to do is give the simplest solution without complicated circuits. Also i dont think that your circuit lights the led's ON when the xbox is OFF and vice versa doesnt it?

I am not trying to discourage you.

In the diagram I posted substitute the Load for a LED and current limit resistor and if there is no power on the base then the LED is on and when put power to the Base the LED is off.

I don't think it's complicated and in the simplest form it could be 2 parts plus you LED and current limit resistor

Then dont comment saying that my method belongs to 1920 and that something else should be used. I gave a solution that DOES work and thats it. All you could do was to just suggest your way as an alternative. Being nice doesnt cost,it also earns you respect

Please keep cool, I don't think you need to get angry like this, this is a forum, there are so many worldwide problem.

Love and Peace

bye

It's always nice to have more than one solution, at least in my opinion. And i thank both of you SakisTheDrifter, Dave for yours.  I guess i will try both of them and see which works better for me or better, for the project i'm on right now.

      I recently acquired a Development Kit (DVT4) and decided to take some high-quality photos of the daughter boards from this console. They're pretty rare and obscure and I wanted to take some good photos for preservation's sake. I'm going to get a Raptor PCI card soon, so I'll add photos of that too later.

      More info-
      These boards were in development kits and consisted of two parts:

This allowed them to test loading scenarios and figure out where certain files for the game should be physically located on a disc in order to reduce load times. When loading a level for a game, for example, all the files needed for that level could be grouped together on the disc to reduce the amount of skipping around the laser needed to do, which decreases load times. There is also a USB port on this card. While it uses a USB connector, it's actually a JVS port. This was used for hooking up arcade sticks and special components built for Please login or register to see this link. , which is based on the Xbox's motherboard. Serial debugging port This allows a developer to get debugging information from the Xbox to see how their code is behaving on real hardware. When writing software, it's useful to see technical info about when and how a bug happens in order to fix it. This board connects to a PC's serial port to read diagnostic info from the console in real time. More info: Please login or register to see this link.

      Any of you consider it? I have a few Xboxes to play with and I'm really thinking of making one.

      Hello,

      I have used the official component cable for my original Xbox for years without any issues, until now. This is what happens:
      Please login or register to see this link.

      This only seems to happen on menu's. No problems in-game so far.

      At first, I thought the cable was damaged, so I bought a Kaico HDMI adapter to replace it, but this is what happens when I use it:
      Please login or register to see this link.

      I decided to grab my older Xbox from the attic for testing and both cables work perfectly on that console, so I think the cables are not the issue.

      I'm no expert at all, so can somebody tell me what's going on with my console? Can it be fixed?
