I recently bought a new v1.0/1.1 motherboard w/ matching hdd from an online store.(not ebay).
I just got it today and put it in my box, but when I hit the power, there's no video or sound, and it frags with the av cable in and flashes orange with it out. I put my x2.2l+ to see if it would boot an evox disk, because there's no dashboard on the hdd, but it still flashes orange and red/green. I don't know if it's my harddrive that needs to have the necessary files injected, or the motherboard is bad.
I think I have a pretty good understanding how these xboxwes work, but this one is just confusing to me. any suggestions?

It has nothing to do with dash files. does the power stay on when you turn it on? Or does it reboot?Might be an MCPX issue or something, because a fragged eeprom flashes _r_r sequence.

So is this a fixable problem? Or should I try to get it returned back to the shop? I hate feeling like I just spen $80 for a piece of broken hardware. So willing to help would be greatly appreciated.

Return it it has at least a screwed up encoder, failed flash, faulty eeprom code, etc.

It's not worth 80.00.

Yeah. I boxed it up ready to ship back to them. And I called them up about it, and he didn't believe me. He said this is hard to believe since they sell hundreds of them and I was the first to have this problem. I guess he'll see when he tests it himself. Thanks for the advice.

I picked up an old 1.0 motherboard to fix my old "freezing" Xbox which I've had with this problem for ages.

Once I got the board I cleaned it with a vacuum, checked it for modifications (someone had tried something like a "matrix" with it) then plugged it in.

Since I did not have a locked hard drive it came up with the animation and errored.

Perfect, fully functional.

Jumpered the two sets of pins (why do the tutorials say you need a wire from WR to WE when there is already a jumper pad?)

Temporarily screwed on a matrix chip (from which I removed the D0 pin purposely to make it easy to manually hit the D0 with a fine wire), locked a new hard drive to it & set it up with Slayers.

Pulled the mod chip did a tsop flash. done.

I'm a happy camper, this old Xbox was driving me nuts.

Bottom line, you can do something similiar about the drive, but the motherboard has to be fine.
