2 False Starts Then Flashing Red/green?
Posted 06 November 2004 - 07:18 AM
The symptoms are two false starts where the eject light flashes green and the machine starts and then dies. On the third try it flashed red and green, but stays running. The peculiar part to me was that this only happens in certain circumstancees:
It happens after the machine has been shut down moments before. The first time i turned the machine on xboxdash booted and no smartxx OS came up at all. The second time it gave me the two greens and the red/green. Now smartxx boots normally UNLESS i try to turn the machine on after turning it off. It usually takes a minute or two to get "normal"
any help would, uh, help.

But my problem is the same. If anything the fragging is more frequent. My question is, is this still the lpc points? do i need to de and re solder? or am i working with a fried mobo? I am optimistic and think i can fix it still.

Bad Soldered LPC points.
-Recheck all solder points.
-Check to make sure there is no continuity between any of the pins.
-Make sure pin header is not off by one row of points.
-Check the entire MOBO for solder that may have splashed or dripped.
-Check both sides.
-Multimeter (for checking continuity)
-Magnifying Eye Loup (allows you to examine MOBO at a very detailed level)
-Does XBOX boot normally with chip removed or D0 unhooked? or does it still frag randomly?
-What color are the lights on the SmartXX?
I have fixed many xboxes for people and usually a small speck of solder was splashed somewhere. It really causes sporadic problems. Sometimes it works, other times it FRAGS. I recommend you check for this.
