Hello,

As the title states, my console refuses to boot, and I have indeed Googled the issue which came up with either a PSU, RF Board, or USB driver issue.

It is none of the above.

The console will boot *some* times, but it won't get into Xell, or the OS. The fans will spin up at 100% and there is a green flashing dot on the RF module. The Matrix Glitcher light comes on and off at times randomly.

Could this be bad soldering work on my end?

Edit: The power brick stays orange most of the time, but when it happens to boot at that weird state, it goes to green.

If this is an attempt at RGHing your console, then it could be your soldering may need some touch up. A little more info will help narrow down the issue

I had RGHed it ~2 hours before this happened. I decided to screw in the casing again and apparently this happened.

Looking at it, if I press on the DVD drive enough, the fans spinning at 100% and light flashing happens.

Connecting the JR-Programmer v2 to the soldered wires (Which I kept on in case I needed to reflash) and querying the console details/type fails with "Flash Config: 0x00000000".

It seems that when you placed the console back together, the dvd drive or case may have moved the wires. So try to resolder the connections in such a way that it won’t be touched or moved when you put it back together

Hmm, alright -- I'll try resoldering it in the morning.

(Also, looking at the TX forums, it appears that it could also be R4B24 having blown itself)

Resoldering managed to get the fans 100% and no-boot away, but now it doesn't even do anything. It simply sits there and beeps, no light on the glitcher this time.

Update: I can get it to boot sometimes now, but when I do get it to boot, it RDOD's after the light on the glitcher flashes once

Update #2: The bottom POST point is dead. Putting the glitcher on the top (Under GPU heatsink) POST point seems to make the glitcher light up all the time, but I still get an RDOD
