In theory, yes but it would be bad idea becasue of the draw through the cable. there are probably other things that wouldnt allow it but theorecically yes. i say give it a try and see what happens.

lcd screens dont draw that much power. if u need 120v (or w/e it is where u live) just solder on to the points on the psu. but u have to plug the power cable in the same way every time, if not the polarity will be wrong for the screen.

maybe it's not a good idea too much power could travel through the xbox cable or not enough you can go ahead and try it tho
