ok i have a 1.4 xbox the problem is when you put a game in the light blinks all the time it will play the game fine but if you change games you have to turn off the xbox and turn it back on with the game in it in order for it to play it

heres the stuff i have done to try to fix this problem
1. swapped dvd drives didnt work
2. swapped the yellow power cable and the ide cable didnt work
3. changed eeprom didnt work
4. did a TSOP flash with xecuter 4981 bios didnt work

i think its something wrong with the motherboard but i dont know what would make it do this

i have tried everything i can think of nothing will fix it so if anyone has an idea let me know and i will try it

im also having sort of the same problem as you except if i turn on the xbox, then put a game in, it wont play the game and the light keeps blinking. so the only way to boot a game is to turn it onwith the game in the dvd drive. heres my thread: http://forums.xbox-s...howtopic=349337

thats what mine does but it will play the game the first time then if you press eject it take a while to open and if you put the game back in it wont play you have to reboot it

mine also takes about 5 seconds to turn off

this happens because the bios makers had to edit the bios to not crash to the dashboard when you eject the disc... try doing an igr... that usually works
