Hi guys, i recently just got my xbox JTAG'ed was great i had a e79 error and took me a while to find out the problem. but i come through and got it to work.... But then i picked it up after booting it up and dropped the LPT connector onto the motherboard! now when i plug it in and try turning it on the power brick light goes red and it does not boot. turn the plug off and on power brick light goes orange as usual until i try to turn on the xbox, then goes red again. what have i done?! im really gutted after how long it took me to JTAG the thing! any help would be great! i hope this can be fixed with a solder iron and a trip to maplins :frown:

If the brick is going straight to red then you shorted out the board. You need to find the blown component and replace it.

are you sure what component/s might have shorted?
i was told maybe the two mosfets in the area i circled
what do you think? good possibility? if so how can i test them?
