my xbox 360 phat (falcon) will not turn on at all.

so basically i got a xbox of ebay with 120gb hhd and it was all working fine. i decided i was gunna rgh 1.2 it .
so i bought a nand-x and a coolrunner rev D it all arrived and i was following a tutorial (the tutorial was with a jr programmer and a cr rev c) i managed to read the nand and had only one bad block but they where both the same so it is fine. next i had to put the timing files on the coolrunner however i didnt have the nand x to coolrunnner cable so i ordered one (from hong kong). so i just wired the coolrunner into the console and was planning to program it when the cable comes.next i plugged the power supply and hdmi into the console and the red light on the coolrunner came on. however when i tried to turn the console on ... nothing. so i unsoldiored all the wires checked the whole console for stray soldier that could be shorting the console but i dont think there was any but it still wont boot. (the power brick light is orange).

any help will help (hopefully).

hi sorry for slow rply just back from holiday. any way i think what i have done is fried the board as i was using 203w power supply on falcon board which only needs 175w.(i know it sounds like a stupid thing to do but i thought it fits and it boots so whats the harm?)
so now i have ordered a new power supply hand im going to change xclamps to put new thermal paste on.
