Default matrix no longer works

sponsored links

I installed my matrix about a week ago. Its been working ok, but last night, tried to turn it on (using either button) and it:

Tries to boot... fails
Tries to boot (with a whine)... fails
Tries to boot (with a whine)... fails, so flashes Red/ Green
Then I get a screen that says "your xbox needs to be serviced" and the error code in the top left is 16 which going by the info off of it means "16 - dashboard - Other files to do with dashboard / dashboard settings (specific dashboard error)"

If I press eject again, the tray will open. What can I do? Ive already tried burning EvoX to a dvd 4 different times and boxplorer once it wont load either one. Maybe im doing it wrong. I need to know EXACTLY what to in step by step. Any help is apprecicated I have already looked at posts on the forum that simply say to try and boot up boxplorer or evox dash. Neither worked. I might be doing something wrong. PLEASE HELP =(

Your matrix might of came loose? Have you opened it again to check to see if it's seated correctly still?

??? Are you talking about the same thread Nolia??

Anyway, Matrix is easy to install and check, you just need a Torx 10&20 screwdriver, then you can get to the motherboard to put in the matrix or check to see if the light is still green.
