Persistent E10 (0022) On Falcon Mobo Please Help
Posted 23 July 2010 - 02:41 PM
So I bought yet another broken Xbox from Ebay with hopes of fixing it and giving it to a friend. I don't have any details from the seller yet (I sent an email) but this is what the situation is up to now.
1. Before I opened up the xbox I tested it, RRoD with E10 Error, no video, no sound
2. Opened up and found a shotie job done on the x-clamp fix, Falcon Motherboard so I removed it
3. Replaced X-Clamp on CPU and did a proper xclamp fix on the GPU - tested still 0022
4. Did a proper X-Clamp fix on the CPU - tested still 0022
5. Removed everything and did heat gun on top side only and performed inspection for bad traces, looks good
6. Reassembled with x-clamp fix for CPU and GPU - tested still 0022
7. Removed everything and performed heat gun on bottom, let it cool then heat gunned the top again
8. Reassembled with x-clamp fix for CPU and GPU - tested still 0022
9. Removed GPU heat-sink and installed credit card shims under GPU heat-sink - tested still 0022
10. Removed CPU heat-sink and installed credit card shims under CPU heat-sink - tested still 0022
Usually I can fix everything by the time I get to step 6, but this one has really stumped me. Anyone have any other ideas? At this point I don't know what to do.
Thanks in advance

I forgot to mention that it takes about 30sec for the three red lights to appear after the power has been switched on. During that time there is no audio or video. I have also started it up a few times with the controller sync button depressed to erase any error code that are being stored. Still having the same problem. Any help, anything?
I have the exact same problem. My 0022 takes about 35 seconds to boot with no sound or video. I believe its a problem with the cpu (needs a reball). I have yet to test this theory out on mine though.

Anyone know if there is anything else I can do before I resort to sending it out for repair?
