Blown Power Supply?

Yeah I thought about that. I'm hoping that if I get the power supply working I can get the video working as well by switching to S video or composite output.
Basically I'm just desperate not to buy another Xbox this close to the release of the 360

Not that is matters. If that is the surge protector, you can cut it off. It's not required for the powersupply to work.
What version powersupply is this? I see MS SOLVED the sparky soder joint issues in this one. See the blue and brown wires.

I borrowed an oscilloscope from a friend and checked the voltages on the PSU connector, and it appears to be working correctly (blue wire ~3.3V, orange wires ~5V). I then checked the collector on the transistor next to the Xyclops chip (as shown at http://www.llamma.co...ox_no_power.htm), and got a reading of only ~1.7V. So, I ordered a couple of those transistors and will see if that fixes the problem.
What concerns me about this is that I never opened my Xbox prior to my problem, so I don't know what would cause the transistor to go bad (assuming that's my problem). Good thing is, if I am able to fix it then I will finally be able to mod my Xbox since the warranty is no longer an issue!
