Error 06 Question...
Posted 26 November 2004 - 12:35 AM
I bought this thing broken off of ebay, came with a dvd-rom that was missing the top to it, drive seems to function, but until i replace it or repair it i dont know for sure.
The hard drive is dented on the top, but not so much to be hitting the platers and it powers on and sounds good to me, i plug it into my computer and its recognized (not accessable cause its locked)
The xbox had a xecuter 2.3 installed and removed, i found some crossed connections on a chip that i de-soldered, once i desoldred this chip i was able to get it to boot to the screen saying that service was needed and 06 was displayed.
I am assuming this hard drive is the problem, and once my modchip comes, i am going to put in a regular HDD (i dont plan to use xbox live so it shouldnt be a problem)
I am just wondering what you guys think, everyone agree that it must be a hard drive problem?
Oh, also i switch the jumper connection from cable select, to slave and get different error codes relating to HDD problems (although i never tried master, but i will)
I just want to know if you all think i should be re-checking for crossed connection, maybe i didnt desolder that section like i thought i did.
Now, if i get the modchip, and borrow someone elses dvd-rom to setup my new HDD with slayers evox tools, i should be able to remove the dvd-rom entirely and at least boot to a menu, right?
Please let me know, my chip should be in tomorrow and i want to get this box booting
Thanks for any help,

I Guess i just want to know that its the HDD giving me the errors, and not some crossed connection on the board giving me a false error code.
I would tend to think if i had a crossed connection like that the unit would not give me video/audio so i'm fairly confident thats what it is, but i'm looking for confirmation

if you want a suggested fix, buy a unlocked hdd, but a unlocked eeprom. hope they are both really unlocked

I have new New DVD Drive in the works as well, i'm throwing a regular pcdvd in just like Superfro's tutorial shows. I'm hoping this turns out to be as nice of a unit as i expect :-)
i do have a 40gb toshiba laptop drive sitting around, i was thinking about buying a converter and shoving that in to save room for future mods, but i rather have a 7200rpm drive than a 4200
If you have any other info on the subject, i'm happy to read it
Thanks for your help, happy thanksgiving
