I've had error 0103 on a premium xbox 360 and fixed it with a few mods.
First Do the eraser/penny fix. If that doesnt work for you, then heat up the GPU by disconecting the fans and letting the console overheat(2 red lights)for about a minute. Afterwards just leave it for about an hour to cool down and it should work fine.
Also do the 12Vfan mod to keep the 360 cooler once you get it to work again.
BTW I'm not sure if your 360 will come out of 0103 coma because you used the xclamp fix and to be honest it might do more damage than good in your 360's case.
In my opinion, the penny-"fix"/eraser method is NOT a good way to fix an xbox as the amount of pennies/the eraser piece is much higher than it is allowed to be, the maximum height that an object that you place there may have is 2mm as there is only 3mm space in between case and mainboard, the RAM is 1mm high so if you subtract that it is 2mm, just 2 pennies is like 2.5mm already and will cause it to flex in the tutorial they use 3 which is definitely way too high and by experience the erasers are often about 5mm high at least it was like that for the ones I found in some ROD 360s from ebay.
The overheating method is at least as retarded as the penny fix as it only works temporary at best and while overheating the chip the transistors get too hot which causes the chip to run at higher default temps after it was done which is bad side effect, everybody who says that this fixed his 360 for longer than a week is either a liar or a magician.
You can either keep on overheating it every couple of days or fix it properly with the x-clamp fix and reflow the board if necessary thats the only real way to fix it....
I have checked the forums a couple of times in the past few weeks and it seems that the penny-fix and overheating fixes are at its annual high which I seriously dont understand as there are so many good tutorials out there and even in the descriptions of the tutorials, I spoke about it says that they dont work properly and are dangerous(like for the penny fix).
Just felt that this had to be said.This post has been edited by humboldt111502: Jan 15 2009, 07:39 PM
