sounds like the power supply is going
Is it common for ver 1.6 power supplies to go bad? The Xbox will boot into the MS dash since the HDD is locked, it just has a hard time booting from the chip. There was no problem when it was first installed. I checked all solder points and everything looks good. Is there a possibility that the chip is defective (xecuter 3 CE)?
