Hello There - Crystal Xbox - Repair or Sale?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, just wanted to start a thread regarding my Crystal Xbox Original as its modded with Evox chip and only loads the Evox boot when the chip is enabled and I also press the LED pins with my finger (very odd, no?) I've included an image to show what I mean. The chipped Evox works in this case but wondered if there's anmything I should do?

I'm also considering selling it once working. Thanks and cheers for the advice.

Just an added note:

 When turning on with the Mod chip Disabled, it always boots fine.

But when the Mod Chip is turned on it will restart three times and flash red/green? This does not happen if I put my finger on the LED pins, then it loads the Mod bios fine first time when turning on, let go of the pin and can use emulation and apps like XBMC fine. No idea why.

You could try spraying some contact cleaner in the 3 switches and work them on and off about 10 or 15 times each, but to me it sounds like the solder joints on the other side of the switchboard need to be resoldered .

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

      So i tried to upgrade my 1.1 xbox to 128mb.
      I installed the first chip successfully and xblastOS flashed to TSOP said "Success". Then i attempted to install second chip on bottom side, but xbox started fragging. I fixed up some shorts i found, but it still fragged. Then i measured according to datasheet, that power to RAM is shorted to ground. The shorted pins most likely were: 66 and 65. However it's possible, that i used the chip pinout wrongly and i measured short between VDD and VDDQ, which should be fine.
      Even after fixing the shorts, it still fragged. After (destructively, but fortunately without ripping any trace) removing the both installed chips, it still does very weird frag. Basically the LED lights up only for short while and then turns off. Xbox's fan runs for a while and then it reboots. This gets repeated indefinitely, but rarely you get normal FRAG and xbox stays on. I measured 2.65V going to the VDDQ pin and the RAM power rail or any of the main power rails are NOT shorted now.
      ANyone knows if i can fix it? All my other xboxes are either fragging (i have 1.0 i got fragging, but it might be TSOP issue as there are no signs of tracerot, no leaking caps and apparently TSOP might naturally degrade now, so i ordered modchip and will try to install it) or they are 1.6, which suck

      Here is reference image how i installed one of the chips, that worked well (the first one). I guess it was pretty good: Please login or register to see this link. . The residue is either flux or denaturated ethanol i used to clean it up.

      After years of collecting dust, I'm finally getting my 5 Xbox's out to fix and mod. Starting with replacing the bad capacitors, modding one to hold all of the Xbox games, and then who knows from there. Really just want to get rid of all of my physical copies of games as they are taking up space and I've given up on collecting. Thanks for having me!

      Hello everyone, my name is Vitalij and I am from latvia ! 
      I have two xbox v1.1 and v1.6  in 1.1 dump of something (red-green light), but fully working power supply and 1.6 working, but the mosfet burned out in the power supply.
      Is it possible to make a 1.1 to 1.6 PSU, can there be a complete manual or something? I found a guide showing how to make from 1.1 to 1.2-1.5, but as I understand it, this does not work for me.
      Could you please help with this?
