I always go for the extreme, LOL

Sweet. Oh i feel all special now lol. biggrin.gif

Should put up the schematic for the logic circuit. And i suppose if a 100k resistor doesnt work just put in a 10k instead.

EDIT: hey its my 60th post lol

yea try 100k, 47k, or 10k and see what you get.

I tested 100k and 47k and both seam to work fine.

as got_max said, I would recomed a 10k if you want to be sure to have it run stable.

OK i finally did the mod too, even though i have no 360 (Well its coming in the mail this week!!! I cant wait!!!)

It does work cause i put 3.3V on the wire and the PSU will turn on fine. Also i used a 100k resisotr aswell.

Heres a crappy pic:

Now the only problem will be actually connecting it to the 360. I dont have an intercooler (theyre not real common in australia) and im not taking the 360 apart as it has the warrenty till next febuary. Would i be able to try solder the wires onto the metal contacts on the power plug?

I put a tread in the BST asking if anyone has an intercooler or a 360 power lead theyd want to sell me.

EDIT: Oh yeah i also used a BC 548 NPN transistor

Cool, Good Job

I got together a 1k and 10K resistor to test with my transistor and the PSU will not power on, so it seems with my transistor the higher you go with the resistor the more stable it becomes, so I’m going to stick with the 100K, or I might jump it up to 200k or 300K. LOL

hmm you were maybe overloading the transistor. Too much current on the base and it will blow up (not literally, but it wont work anymore. Remeber the transistor in the 1.6 that always breaks?)

I didnt test it with a 10k resistor as i couldnt find one. i think ill stick with the 100k.

I would like to see somebody prove that this actually works when there is a disc in the tray..

Well, it most likely does work. It just didn't work for me.

My PSU was only putting out 10.4V under load, and had one 12V rail. So al long as your PSU can put out around 11.9V@17A you should be fine. I think I just had a bad PSU.
