Dvd Drive Issue After Jtag Cable Removal
Posted 28 September 2012 - 01:46 AM
you guys here have always helped me with what i need so this is the first time i could not find the answer I need.
I jtagged my xbox to recover a lost dvd key everything went very well got the key flashed the drive and the dvd drive played games and worked great.
I finished the jtag and put freestyle dash on and then removed the cable.
now the drive has no power and wont open and just has open tray like the drive is not installed and the center light blinks rapidly.
please can someone please help answer why this happened after i removed the jtag cable?

I only removed the cable that goes from board to pc I left the two diodes and jump wire intact from first image.

blinking LED on console means the console cant see the drive at all.

Check and make sure the sata and power cable are installed correctly and firmly in place. If thats not it then its possible that the smc is incorrect. Try building a new image.
It's been a minute since I've done a JTAG but I'm pretty sure SMC would just lead to a e74 or e79 error some where along them lines. I've had the same issue he's having with the blinking red light. Something is shorting some where
Take pictures of your install and post or upload them some where so we can see what you have going on. Also whats the MB type.

I thought maybe one of the old solder points might have been youching something
but same issue even out of the cage.
its not a red blinking its the center green blinks rapidly like the drive is not present or is unplugged.
the drive worked great and played games till i dc'd the cable that goes from board to pc.
I left the 2 dioeds and the jump wire because if removed i get the e79 once back on it fires right up.
I checked points to make sure no solder was bridging anything i just really dont want to go back and solder the cable on again just to make it work because i was gonna use the cable to do another one once i recv'd it.
thank you again for your help and i will get pics up soon and I hope we can get this figured out.
I play games off the thumb drive but have soo many burnt games id like to play again also.
