Xbox HDMI Green Problem

Hi, I managed to get hold of a xbox 360 jasper v1. HDMI worked fine for about 10 minutes. I turned it off then back on and now it has a huge green tint to it. It is almost like the black channel has been removed as when I display a complete black image the screen is solid green. The AV connection wo...

Re: Xbox 360 SLIM Aluminium Unibody Laptop

I would consider using a copper base and heat pipes that screw into the aluminum just to make sure the heat spreads out quick enough. Just being solid aluminum may not do enough to spread the heat from that one area. Also, It couldn't hurt to still have shallow fins on the topside of the case Any l...

Xbox 360 SLIM Aluminium Unibody Laptop

Now before you leave, thinking this is just another "how do i get started doing an xbox laptop" its not: I have already made an xbox laptop, annoyingly just before the slim consoles came out. Its large, heavy and fragile and isnt the best to take anywhere on a trip. So I thought I may make another 3...

Re: Xbox 360 Power & MOSFET Types

If it's missing the standby Regs and you're trying to power it up, then you should honestly just bin that thing now. Troubleshooting a PCB like that with nothing to go by isn't going to end up with great results. Even with the schematic, DMM, Oscilloscope and a working one for comparison it's still...

Re: Xbox 360 Power & MOSFET Types

0022 isn't overheating, it's some hardware error, (H)ANA, GPU or Southbridge. The FETs are surface mount, so there's no difference between the driver IC and how they're mounted. If you're getting 1.8v where there should be 5v then something is loading it down, though that's an awful odd voltage to ...

Re: Xbox 360 Power & MOSFET Types

If all of the FETs are bad then there's more of an issue there than just them. A lot of them are in parallel with others also, so if only 1 is bad it will look like more are. Also, testing them in circuit is no way to tell if they're bad or not as you'll always get an incorrect measurement from oth...

Xbox 360 Power & MOSFET Types

Hi, I have a spare jasper board. Board works fine, although it gives an immediate 0001 power problem. The MOSFET's have gone, and all need replacing. I have a spare falcon, opus and xenon board but no spare jasper (as jaspers dont tend to break). I was thinking of getting all the mosfets of the falc...

Re: xbox 360 laptop

I found this is the simplest way to do it and it is how I did it: Get a universal inverter for you screen (not that expensive from ebay) Connect the inverter to the screen, and get the 12v power cables from it find a pinout for the xbox 360 motherboard power connector plug , and find the 12v and GND...

Re: 3PS60 Controller, Wired 360 controller in PS3 shell

Awesome - PS3 controllers are so much better than 360 ones, especially the joysticks!

Good work!

Acer Aspire One USB Ports!?

Today I opened up my acer aspire one A150 netbook (I have opened it many times before without problem). I was soldering wires onto pins 36 and 38 of the mini pci-e wifi connector. When I tested them, it recognized the flash drive I plugged into the ports when I turned it on. I then put tape over the...

Re: PS3 Heatsink- Slim it down?

Although I havent started my PS3 laptop yet, I have built an xbox 360 one. I used the stock heatinks and trimmed them down and the cpu got wayy to hot and I had to put 3 extra fans on it to keep it cool which also increased the sound. If I were you I would spen a little time researching some laptop ...

Re: PS3 to VGA - The easiest way to connect a monitor to a PS3

I just contacted the seller and this is what they said back to me: Unfortunately, we can't give specific compatibility advice - the only way to find out really is to try the cable. It does not have a transcoder built in, though, as this cable simply outputs the normal console output through a VGA po...

PS3 to VGA - The easiest way to connect a monitor to a PS3

Hi, I am going to get a ps3, and I have a 23" 1080p monitor with a DVI-D cable but its not hdcp compliant. I am stuck to convert the signal to VGA. There are 2 ways I have found of doing this: 1: Get a HDMI to VGA transcoder box which is quite expensive. I reckon this is definitely going to work, an...
