Default Need help after fitting modchip

sponsored links

i have fitted a duox 2 chip to my crystal xbox but when pressing the power button the xbox will not work and a red flashing light is around the eject switch. from what i can find out this seems to be a eprom problem, could it be that the chip needs flashing ? i have checked the installation several times and it seems fine ... any help would be appreciated as the xbox was the sons chrissy box

after looking again noticed this: when pressing the eject button to power up (chip disabled) xbox powers up normally, however when pressing power button to start xbox (chip enables) the green light flashes three times then flashes red green, screen is black with on error messages or anything.

checked the intall connections again and all seem secure and cant see any solder splashes...please help before son contacts childline

Could be a couple of things.

I guess if its a crystal box it is either a v1.6, or v1.6b. Did you do the lpc rebuild? Also IIRC a poor d0 point will cause this problem.

If you have a 1.6 or 1.6b then there are bioses specific to those versions. I have never used a duox 2 chip before, do they come with cromwell bios on them? My guess is that you will have to reflash with either the 1.6 or 1.6b bios.

Hope that helps!
