hey I'm having problems... we did the X-Clamp mod a week ago. now it lasted for 2 1/2 days working perfectly until then I started getting color errors... like everything went either blue or red in a game and at the dashboard.

my xbox is out of warranty so there's no chance of sending it in. we have tried tightening the screws on the clamp and then loosening too since that didn't work... now we get no video sad.gif

any ideas plz??? biggrin.gif

Which method did you use? Check your thermal paste. I suggest removing everything and starting over.

The same happened to me. Had the 3 leds, opened the box and found I had the protective foil on my GPU thermal paste. Removed the old paste and replaced it with "some white heat sink paste". Managed to get the box started: green lights, the starting sound, even managed to start the game ("blindfolded"), but black screen=no video. Getting some Arctic Silver today and will re-try. I have no X-clamp mod (yet), maybe I should do the 3/12 penny mod first?

StupidStupidStupid me!

I had the AV cable accidentally switched into "HD" while I was using normal TV/Scart ohmy.gif
Anyways, did the Arctic Silver + 2 penny mod. Works fine now with picture and all (when the switch is in the right position) smile.gif
