I did build me nice mediaplayer Xbox with SmartXXv3 in 2007. Worked like a charm all this time. Now yesterday, its starts to Frag with Dash Error 16. All i did was disconnect it and let it sit for 2 hours.
As I have a master switch for all my AV equipment, it wasn't unusual for the box to have no power, and this error never happend before.
I already resoldered every point, bend the Modchip connector on the board for better contact, connected the original HDD, tried another AV cable, nothing. SmartOS will not start. The display thats soldered on the modchip lights up for a quarter of a sec, then nothing.
The last thing i did was playing an audiocd with XBMC.
Has my modchip died?
