Installed White Duox 2 Gs, Flashing Red Rings Of Death
Posted 22 December 2007 - 06:13 AM
Firstly, I got the modchip because the HD in the current xbox was dying and decided it would be the easiest alternative. After the modchip was put in, I switched the old HD with a newer one. When I turned it on I got an error 16. Having no idea what that error was, or why I got it, I tried turning it off and turning it back on again. Same thing. Thinking the other HD was broken (Yes, the doashboard is installed on the harddrive, I know that now.) I switched back to the old one, and then it only gave the flashing red ring. No sound or video. I switched back to the other HD and it's still doing the same thing.
What went wrong, I have no idea, but if anyone has any ideas please feel free to share them.

The replacement has corrupt clock.xip files which are part of the dash
Format the drive and re-install all the files from Slayers 2.7 or similar auto installer.
This is not a chip specific fault so moving

Does the ring flash Red and Green or what?

The soldering to the LPC is suspect and also your BT connection point could be wrong

edit: OK it enables (tries to turn on and doesn't) when we push power button, and bypasses the chip (and boots the xbox) on eject. I was wrong.

As this is a white chip? you haven't attempted any kind of flash yet at all I assume? A bad flash will cause the box to FRAG as will bad solder joints to the LPC

Our HDD was dieing, so we got a modchip and a replacement HDD. We put the modchip in (both solders are correct, 1 to d0, and one to BT).
With the original HDD: When we push the power button (to turn on the XBox with the modchip), it would flash green twice, and a sound would come out of the TV like somebody blowing into a microphone each time it flashed. Then it would red-ring (flash red and green) and the HDD would start grinding. This continues untill we turn it off. We tried bank 0 and bank 1 on the modchip, both produce the same results.
When we push the eject button, everything boots up normaly... As normal as it could be with a dieing HDD anyways (it doesn't go to the BIOS).
With the new HDD: So far all I know is it doesn't have a dashboard, so when we boot up with the eject button it gives us an Error 16. I wasn't around when we tried the power button so I don't know if it makes the sounds from the TV and a grinding noise from the HDD.
Edit: Yes it's a white chip. We don't know what an LPC is and there's nothing about it on the diagram. The chip is just something we put into a plug near d0. We haven't flashed anything yet, we didn't know if we were supposed to because the chip already has 2 BIOS' on it.

The LPC is the place you solder the pin header that the chip plugs onto.
The soldering should like this
My install guide is for the blue but the physical fitting is the same
Okay, the LPC is correct, several pins that aren't needed were left in this thing but it isn't actually soldered into the board with this thing so there isn't a connection. I don't know if that would break it or not.

If so you will have had to solder on the female pin header to the chip. You should also have had to solder in the male pinheader to the LPC.
It sounds like you possibly have not installed these parts yourself.
The soldering of both has to be spot on, no damage round them, clean solder joints that don't look like bird shit. Is this the case? Do you have pictures of the soldering work on the LPC?

If not then
The soldering looks fine to me you may need to try another chip to rule it out.
