Tsop Switch Gone Wrong
Posted 02 June 2005 - 02:10 AM
it all started when the switch stopped working, it wouldnt go into retail mode. i carefully resoldered the wires to the switch, never once removing the motherboard, still no difference. i have a hunch that the ground wire is disconnected at the bottom and to test this, i take a wire, secure it to a screw for grounding, and connected it to another wire coming from under the motherboard.
this is when shit happens
it starts to smoke, and the wire coming from the underside of the motherboard looks fried. i dont know what is damaged, i immedietly turned off the xbox, unplugged the power, and its sitting now. what should i do???
would it be safe to try turning it on again? or could that only do more damage? what could of happened???

You have nothing to lose going for it... If you can't repair the a19 trace, install a permimant lpc chip and you won't have to worry about fragging (a19 is only needed for the tsop).
