Ok, so this is my first post to this board although I've been reading and utilizing a lot of advice that is posted on here. I have modded about 6 or 7 xbox's with the xchip before. I've done solderless installs as well as pin header installs. I find the pin header to normally be more reliable once installed correctly.
My problem is this. As stated in the description, I have a 1.0 board with the xchip pin header install. With the chip off, it boots to the xbox dashboard. With the chip on, I get the old cycle on/off 3 times then stays on with the FRAG. There is no video with the FRAG.
I have checked over the board for solder splashes with a 10x magnifier and didn't see any. I have used a voltmeter to check connections. resistance, and made sure I didn't lift any traces.
Here are the voltage readings that I get with the chip off and box powered on. Votmeter is set to 20V max.
Pin 1 - 0.05V
Pin 2 - 0v
Pin 3 - 3.34V
No pin 4
Pin 5 - 5.14V
Pin 6 thru pin 11 - 3.34V
Pin 12 - 0V
I have checked the chip in another box that is modded and it works fine.
I am enclosing a link to two pictures of the install, if anyone can see an issue, please let me know.http://www.geocities.com/kronyck/xbox/xbox.html
Thanks everyone in advance for your help!!!
