Default Xbox cdrom flashing red color

sponsored links

The cdrom drive is flashing red color instead of green and it doesn't start up. The cdrom barely ejects. What is the problem and what can i do to fix it? My xbox is modded btw.

MY xbox hasn't been touched or anything and it worked before so I don't think that any wires got loose because it hasn't been touched.

I have had that happen when my wires for my chip have fallen off the board. you might want to just open it up and check to make sure the wires are all where they should be and not touching things they shouldn't.

If you have an X2, your header pins aren't soldered to the board completly. I just did 5 xboxs with the x2 and two of them came up this way. I pulled them back apart and resoldered the header pins, and it came up perfect.
