Double and triple check all your connections, use a magnifying glass and check for poor looking solder joints, Solder joints should be BLOB free and a uniform color, also check for crossed connections on your mod chip board. take the mag glass and look around for driplets of solder that may have fallen without your knowledge one small drip can cause a short... If all else fails remove your work, see if the xbox works with it removed, if not your SOL. If it works after removal give your install another go......

Hopefully you purchased your chip from a reputable source Bad chips are not unheard of...

recheck all the points again. Make sure they are all correct.
here's what the lights mean:

GREEN/RED Flashing:
Probably a bad chip or bad image.

SOLID GREEN/NO EJECT/No AUDIO/No VIDEO:
Probably a bad solder point. Check all your points again.

SOLID GREEN/No AUDIO/No VIDEO:
This is probably a problems with your audio settings. Try to boot your xbox with a standard a/v pack instead of a HD pack.

ORANGE/GREEN Flashing:
No AUDIO/VIDEO (A/V) pack.

What about ORANGE/RED Flashing, after momentarily flashing GREEN...?
That's WITH NO chip in there...what does that mean??

BTW, this happens when audio, video, power, and controller are all plugged in.
