Thanks for your offer to help. I have an xbox version 1.6 that was modded several years ago and has been in storage. Now it wont boot up evox and the lights on the external switch do not nome on. The only light on the chip that's on is the blue light. Any thoughts?

If it's a pinheader install I'd first check it's seated properly. I have one in a 1.6 and it tends to tip towards the gpu if I'm not gentle with the xbox. Also do all usual checks connection wise

Thanks for the reply. I noticed that, and tried to boot up without installing the drives, and same issue. Even with it straight and fully seated, does not launch evox or have a light on the switch. I've tried resoldering the connections, and same issue. Is there a certain connection or voltage i should be looking for in the pins?

I put a glob of hot glue in one corner for this very reason.

Still not having any luck. Just finished going over all of the solder connections on the Rebuild PCB, and still no go on getting the chip to launch or light up the front switch.

There's no LED lit for the 3.3 supply voltage.  As well, there should be a couple more LEDs lit. One to indicate flash protection on or off and when the modchip is enabled/disabled (this one's on the front panel switchboard though which is not getting power).

See page 13 of 18

Update: I thought there were more LEDs opposite the 3.3 and 5V supply indicators.  But, that's the Xapter solderless adapter's blue LEDs in the picture on page 13.

I know. thats why I went back to recheck and redo all of the solder joints. Installation was complete and working before the unit was put away for several years. Going to check the voltage at the back of the mod chip on the pin header conections to see if its seing the 3.3 v. I guess that should be pins 9 and 15 according to the instructions

I see what you say on page 13 about the led but I dont see any other led on the board other then the two either side of the switch connector and the one for the write protect switch.

I’m my case, was a bad solder joint. Fixed it on the third time flowing out the solder. Not sure why after 5 years of storage it would have gone bad. While I was in mourning for it before getting it fixed, I found another used Xbox online with an xecuter chip, hard drive loaded with over 3 games, and 4 controllers for $70. Will take delivery tonight and hope all is well with this unit.

      Hi, my precious modded Xbox is a UK device and I have been working on the basis that the PSU is 220v only and will need to be replaced with a 110v supply. Can anyone confirm that this is the case - if it can handle multi voltage then that would be a great surprise. Obviously if I need to replace the PSU thats fine - would anyone have any tips / pitfalls I need to be aware of??
      Cheers
