Short In Power Switch
Posted 13 September 2003 - 02:40 PM
I removed the XIR and desoldered the mess, but I still get the short! When I plug in my Xbox, it either powers on and off randomly by itself, or just stays on and the power button doesn't work.
Is it possible I've managed to fry something? Looking at the board I don't see anything sensitive. I'm temped to drill out pin 2 and relocate it elsewhere on the board, but I'm afraid I'll just make it worse.
I'm fairly sure this my problem 'cause if I don't plug in the front panel PCB, the Xbox doesn't come on (as I would expect)
Does anyone have any advice? I feel kinda dumb cause I've done a few D0 solder jobs without ever having an issue, and this solder point is huge in comparision!

I've done hundreds of solder jobs for modchips on just about ever console...
When I did my LED mod I wasn't paying attension and burned one of the traces of that fron pcb off easily with a 15Watt IRON!!!
my only suggestion to you is to go on ebay or that llamma site and see if you can buy a new front PCB

I guess I'll try removing wire 2 from the connector on the PCB, cutting where it connects on the power switch and connecting them together. Not a lot to lose at this point... The power switch is a very important component of the Xbox
