Hello i just came back from holiday and my xbox rgh won't boot.
I tried to:
Turn it on then quickly press the eject button to bypass the plugins does not work.
Remove the hard drive then turn it on, still does not work.
Tried this too does not wor
LEDS : The red light stays on all the time even when off, the geen just flashing and sometimes stays on a bit then flashing again.
Just to mention, i did turn it on with the controller but it seems like the controller isnt connectin but it did turn on the xbox it is flashing all of its led lights the all 4, and when i plug in the wired controller it flashed once the nr 1 and 2 then went off.
Any help with that ?> is there a connection lose problem? does it need replacement of fit a " connection to post_out become loose, Corona Consoles need a so called post_out fix which is 2 pieces of PCBs with a needle, maybe it needs to be refitted"

Okay so:

Red light on the chip is power, that should always be on if the console is plugged in
Green light is the glitch chip, it's unlikely to be wiring if the console is attempting to glitch and has done before (It should flash, sometimes longer than usual depending on the job.)

The POST_Fix boards don't usually come loose since they're soldered into place to help with that.

Just unplug it, hold the power button for 30 seconds, plug it all back in and press eject to try booting into Xell.
Keep an eye on that green light or even provide a video if you can for me and we'll see where to go from there :smile:

If it still won't boot into Xell remove your HDD and any USBs plugged in and try it again. Sometimes this is caused by a bad HDD.

So i did take out the power take out the hard drive plug in the power hold the button for 30 sec then put back the hard drive and turn it on with eject still does not work..
I turn it on without the hard drive and still nothing even with eject.

Green light shouldn't be staying on, so it's likely the post_out has an issue.

If the wires look okay it'll be the postfix adapter under the heat sink, if you can get under the heatsink with something thin, very gently try pushing the post fix towards the CPU.
(Do this with power off of course!)

Awesome, yeah it sounds like either POST_fix issues or a stray wire grounding out.

The glitch is trying but still not getting a proper post signal, keep at it bud!

Just take your time, and don't run the console for too long with that fan disconnected bud, you don't want to damage the console.

Right okay bud,

Wires look okay except that 4th one, if you've got some PVC tape to hand I'd patch that up to protect it but it's not broken, just make sure it isn't touching anything (looks like the dvd drive might have worn against it when installed)

Any change on the glitch light?

0100, typical issue fix is

"Replace GPU or RAM"

Yeah this is usually the case.
Sometimes this is caused by a bad connection to CLK or Post_Out, grounded to the chassis is the most common issue and can kill the GPU/CPU on slims.

Can this be also caused because of high temp? right now im getting 68-70 temps

68-70 is not all that high. 60-65 is where I keep all my RGHs set at. However I am unsure if it would be related to the temps you are seeing.

That's fine, these consoles often run around 80
