It turns on, but the green ring of light never does its thing and the monitor doesnt show it turning on. It also won't boot to xell reloaded. I have tried reflashing to no avail.

I think you have a RROD my friend, If it will turn on and the center light stays green and your controllers won't sync/ no video or audio. You have a rrod.

Flash your original nand and see if the error code pops up

Check your wiring, if it's ok then RROD is on it's way, even if there are no red lights.

I'm betting a solder joint was bad or just came off. I doubt it's rrod. I'm going to check the wiring later.

Remember, it's a xenon mobo, they're not reliable att all. And if the wiring was bad it would throw you E79 not black screen.

Edited my last post.
Alright, I have flashed it again with a diff nand image and restored the original nand back and multiple things and now it's 3rlod'd itself. i guess this console is finally dead as i had just relflowed it for the second time a couple days ago. sad day.

edit: i don't have the tools to reball it that's why i reflowed.

Try a professional reball and not an homemade Reflow wich breaks the console, i told you that RROD is on it's way :tongue:

jaspers are actually better than slims. ive spoken to many professional reflow and reball people and they recommend jaspers. they see alot of slims coming in needing reballs but only seen a couple jaspers and this is after 50,000 consoles or so

Slims are GPU/CPU combined in 45nm and phat jaspers are 65 nm of both wich means way more heat than slims. And jaspers are old now, if you buy one you never know how much time it will last. And i doubt someone would have done 50 000+ consoles....

It doesn't matter if no lights show up on the console, As you have a hacked nand, the error codes won't be the same now, I have had that problem on a few as you just figured out in the later posts, It is RROD lol :smile: You would have to flash the stock nand, and check the real error code.

and yes a professional reball is the good way to go, but if you don't have the money/don't care to much about the console do a reflow yourself, Out of the 60 consoles I've reflown I've had 7 come back, and every other one is running strong to my knowledge, as long as you keep a the temperature of the board from going over 380 you should be fine.

Well if you don't want to reball, And your reflows have not lasted at all, Then either scrap the console or sell it to someone who can do something with it. a reball is the most reliable and best thing for the xbox if you want to make it last/work.

If not, take your losses grab a slim, and RGH it.
