2 Red Lights And Strange Problem
Posted 15 February 2010 - 11:12 PM
The DVD drive doesn't work. I cannot open it, I just hear the little sound at the beginning when you power on the xbox. I've tried it on a different xbox and it works perfectly.
Finally, the power brick lights is orange even when I power up the console.
I've tried the Xclamp and put new thermal paste on CPU and GPU and thermal pads on the four chips.
Anyone have an idea?

The cause is 95% due to improper heatsink tightening. There is no need for a reflow, that wouldn't make much sense. A cold or fractured solder joint wouldn't cause a overheat. So first check for themal indentation then play around with screw tightness, try CPU tighter and GPU looser, finally cut the trace if all else fails.

But luckily, I have at my disposal a microscope. It could help

Generally the route to ethernet is going thru the Southbridge. It worth a try I guess.
