Faulty Daughter Boards...
Posted 13 September 2006 - 11:07 PM
As I understand things so far because ports 1 & 2 are on a seperate board to 3 & 4, if I swap I swap the 2 boards over shouldn't that give me a working 1 & 4 and a broken 2 & 3?
I only say this because I hardly ever use more than 1 controler, and since I only recently chipped my xbox I'm finding its pretty essential to have a working first port. If this would work it would mean I wouldn't have to hunt down replacement boards.
Also are there any good tutorials for daughter board removal? I used the search but the links to the tutorials were either dead or incomplete.
Thanks in advance.

Here's a picture:
It's rather small, but you can obviously see there's no way to swap anything around since it's just one long board.
Why whould you need a daughterboard removal tutorial? Just disconnect the controller ports & Power/Eject cables, then simply pull the board out. It's not rocket science.

Are all daughter boards the same or do I have to get one that matches my xbox version?

It was integrated into future motherboard versions so anytime you see a daughterboard, you'll know it's specifically for 1.0 motherboards.

So, what you need to do is disconnect the daughterboard, and move it out of the way just enough to disconnect the yellow power cable. Then to install the new one, just connect the Power/Eject cable first, and then carefully connect the daughterboard.

*Sigh* I have a 1.1 xbox
Any ideas what I can do next? Is it possible to just swap the controler ports around?

and if 1/ 4 work and 2/3 don't, then it is your actual ports

To me that points to a mobo probelm but I'm really hoping its not.
Any thoughts? I need port 1 to use most homebrew

also, something that happened to me once and confused the hell out of me was, my dongles went bad, they would work on some ports and not others of my xbox and perfect on a different xbox, but once i replaced them they worked all the time
so maybe try a new controller/dongle
also, check the pins that plug into the mobo and make sure that the are in the plastic holder nice and tight
i highly doubt that this is a mobo problem

I know port 1 works when I set in port 3 so I don't get whats going on
Surely this points to a fault on the motherboard?

This of course assumes that you know how to use a multimeter.

I don't know how relevant this is but it was just my first observation.
What else should I be looking for? Wishing there was some way to just make the xbox forget about controler 1 and treat 2 as the default.
