Flashing Red, Can I Use A Banned Eeprom
Posted 23 March 2005 - 08:31 PM
v1.5 box, XBIT 1.0 chip, 4981.06 bios, 120gb HD.
i jsut replaced the IDE cable since i saw it was pinched and had a cut in it when i opened the box ,but that didnt change anything. booted up ok once, then froze in dvd2xbox, and now wont start again. any ideas?

thought id mention that ive also tried several different bioses and i still get the same issue. i havent been banned i dont think, and even so, that shouldnt affect me from playing offline. im not sure if my roomate tried playing a game online or not but i dont even subscribe to xbox live. if it would turn on just one more time id be sure to get the eeprom saved to my pc. this sucks.
edit: hmm seems u can only edit within an hour or so...
anyways, i took the chip out, and i stil haev the same problem. thats pretty wierd since usually i at least get video with no chip in.

id say once you get it to turn on again, backup your eeprom then check all solder connections and try swapping out the dvd drive with a friends or something since it looks there first to boot then the HD, try a different HD, if you have upgraded, drop your original in and see what happens, it sounds like HD failure or a loose solder joint to me, does coldbooting a game have the same affect ?

ive checked the DVD drive, the HD and the chip using a differnet xbox and they are not the issue. ive hooked my components to the other mobo and they work ok, and ive hooked the other components to my mobo and its a no go. i had another post where i showed some pics of a scratched d0... iv soldered into the alternate d0 (v1.4) and same result. ive also soldered all the pins in and same result. i even did the grounding thats needed fora 1.5 just incase.. the ground is connected via multimeter test.
where can i test the d0 point connection with my multimeter? where on the board does the d0 trace lead to so i can check to see if the current makes it the whole way thru? i know its a solid connection from the d0 point on the chip to the solder point on the mobo but this obviously doesnt tell me if its actually connected to the moo properly.
