My xbox won't turn on
Here is my story, a while ago I tried to do the internal hdd mod but I didn't succeed, I modified the dvd power connector to get 5v to power the hdd, when I tried to turn the xbox on after finishing the mod it didn't turn on. However, the fans seemed to be trying to spin.
After many tries, I removed all the wires related to the hdd mod, and still the same problem. I tried almost every solution for power problems out there but couldn't get any of them to solve my problem.
But now, with all the homebrew stuff getting released, I want to fix it since I'm sure this one is exploitable.
Power supply: orange when xbox is plugged, but starts to become unstable if I hit the power button.
Fans: start to spin real slow when I hit the power button, don't stop spinning until the power cord is unplugged.
note: whatever method I use to turn it on (guide button, dvd eject..etc) I still get the same symptoms
i think you made somewhere a shortcut what shows the power supply after pressing the on power button?
search at google for xbox 360 diagrama its a shematic of the xenon board...controll specialy what you did with the dvd power..and look at you solder points..maybe some are bat...
