there are more then 1 type of power supply for the xbox, so because of this they all use a different fuse. while most of them say 15a, some do say T3.15A so please take it to a radio shack or a place that deals with fuse's and have them help you. or at least read what the numbers say and follow them down to the tee. ~Smokey
So your xbox does not power on… why is that? Most common reason is because the fuse on the power supply ate it. I was doing some light project with my xbox and hit pos and neg. did that cost me some money. This is what you’re going to need.And for those in Canada.... PowerHouseKilla says to useif you live in canada
part number for the fuse is 270-1257
and 270-742B for fuse block
1. Fuse rated at (depending on your powersupply) T3.15 or if it says 15 amps, go ahead and go with a lower amp number. the xbox use's 2.1amps so get a fuse in that range.
I recommend a fast acting fuse because of the high rate power supply the xbox uses.
Max voltage rate should be 250
2. You’re also going to need an inline because, you will need it because you’re going to have to clip the fuse out and replace it. Get any inline for the rated fuse amp.
Now once you clip the 2 ends of the fuse, put the fuse in the inline.
When you clip the old fuse your will have 2 cut ends those are going to connected the inline. It does not matter which way they are connected as long as one end is connect to the inline and the other end is connected to the other inline.
I have a fox power supply so I had to solder the bottom part of the board to get my mod to work.
That’s it and should power up no problem.
