I may be wrong i haven't modded my original xbox but i feel like you shouldn't of pulled that off while it was running. First thing i would do is plug back into the disc drive while off then boot up see if you get video or if messed something up.

You shorted something if power goes off immediately. Now you have to check the board with multi-meter. Even motherboard alone should power on and show some sort of an error. I once shorted HDD drive motherboard by touching it to metal cage of xbox, luckily only HDD went apes, was funny also.

2 variants: motherboard is dead or power supply.
