Hey guys, heres the deal i attempted the controller power mod these are steps i took. ok i soldered a wire to the yellow wire on controller port #1 and soldered the end of it to the (if you are looking at the back of the p/e board) bottom left leg for the momentary switch for the power button. after that i went to my controller. i drilled a hole for the momentary switch. After that i took out the yellow wire that is connected to the controller, and solder another wire to that so that it would be long enough to connect to the switch. once i did that i soldered it to one of the two legs on the momentary switch. Then i took out the controller board and soldered a wire to the 5v and then connected it to the momentary switch. The controller closed fine, no wires got disconnected, but i cant power the xbox on with the momentary switch on my controller or the power button on the xbox itself. the only way i can turn it on is by pressing the eject button. Please help

are you sure its a momentary push button, and are you sure its not shorting out anywhere.
and you soldered to the bottom of one of the four points

it is a momentary switch. i looked over everything and couldn't find anything that would case it to short out, but that is most likely the problem but i couldn't find anything, and yes i soldered it to one of the bottom points

Sounds like you have the wrong switch or the solder is shorting something somewhere...

Also, it doenst matter what side of the momentary push button switch legs go to what point... as long as one is to a black wire for ground, and the other is to the yellow wire.....

Than from the yellow wire, in the xbox itself, you have to solder to the 2nd little thing up from the bottom.....
