WELL Just as the topis says ... I am trying to figure out if My mobo is busted or still fixable. I have a borken mobo that had a 5volt regulator littertally go up in smoke on it (I have no clue what caused it to actually burn up llike that....). After Solderin the points on a 1.2 Xbox make the TSOP flash writable I kinda made a slight mistake.
Since the other mobo with the broken Voltage regulator and this mobo seemed to have the same part I wanted to get a quick multimeter reading while it was runnig (to make certain it was a 5 volt regulator) and well... I slipped when I was measuring the voltage off of the middle pin and hit the output pin.... effectly shorting the ground to the output line...... This reset the xbox and now the bastard Just frags instead of bootin up.
The voltage regulator is located on the 1.2 side of this picture... the one being covered up by the X
Is the mobo gone beyond repair or could it just be tha tI half fried the mosfet by shorting it for a split second?
what else could be the problem? Is there Any chance that after flash enabling the TSOP that When I slipped I kinda somehow erased some of the flash info (Does the Flash chip run off of the 5V line?)
Also does anyone know a replacement part number for that Voltage regulator from either mouser or Radio shack (I have no Idea the input ranges for the part nor the max current... though I do have a 1.0 amp Radio shak v5 regulator....)
Any info would be appricated...
