So, I've been at this LCD all day. Didn't work at all this morning. Cleaned contacts, added a bit of pressure to the tabs behind the screen. Now I have a magic lcd screen - when I move my hand close to the rear of the lcd, all pixels populate, crystal clear, but when I remove my hand, the bottom letters dwindle away...

Is there any hope? Any ideas?

      I built myself a few open xeniums mainly to run a LCD on my 1.0. Everything does work but I'm having a strange issue with xenium os holding the wallpaper I selected and taking a few extra seconds to load my c or e partition when adding my .bins after reboot. It doesn't do it when the LCD is connected. Is this just the cpld being bogged down? Also noticed sometimes the LCD goes blank when playing games or navigating the menus.

      I have a version 1.0 xbox that was my first attempt at a mod however I did not get that far.
      When I first got it, the drive would not open and it would power up when plugged in.  I broke the seal on the case and had a look inside.
      The clock capacitor threw-up over itself and drained over the board.  I removed the capacitor and cleaned up the mess.  Also had to repair some traces on the bottom of the board.  I could then turn the xbox on and off and also reset it.
      I cleaned up the Thomson Drive and got that to open and read disks.
      Was even playing Burnout (badly scratched) from disk as well as Battlefront.
      Then everything changed.
      Now when I power the xbox, it will make three attempts to start.  I can watch the two cooling fans start and stop. On the third attempt, the fans tend to keep running, however sometimes the unit powers off.  Front leds blinking red and green.   I can hear and feel the DVD and hard drive winding up.  At no time do I get video.
      There have been no hard or soft mods to this xbox.
      A general review of the board does not show any bad capacitors or fried resistors.  I have not found any additional bad traces, however I can give it another check with the meter.
      Any suggestions for troubleshooting, or is this unit kaput and ready for part supply?

      Hello All,
      I have a xbox that i picked up used, and it has a xecuter pro 2.1 (i believe) but it does not have the front or rear rs232 or DIP switch plates. When i boot i get an error of an unlocked drive, so I assume it is trying to boot to factory BIOS and it has a WD 120GB IDE drive in it. I tried to jump the D0 wire to ground as I read that would force it to use the xecuter's bios, and when I do that I get a greyscale screen that "xbox Linux Clean BIOS 1.22dev" screen that tells me to put in a disc. is this something i can do with Hexen? Thank you for any help
