It actually looks better in person camera kinda sucks.....
I think this is why my 1.8 is shorting and getting so hot
if you can see i have scratch right through the trace
Well i am having a issue where that chip is getting extreamly hot when it is set up like this
if i remove all wiring and clean up all solder it gets warm but not hot in 3 secs like it does there
i read little bits of info in this thread that could be some what related but i am completely lost....
Bought a lot of 360's
this one was giving me a 0110 error? something related to ram maybe 0020 idk anymore kinda tired
noticed it would boot without drive
took drive apart
saw a hack job
i fixed hack job
everything kinda worked
it just wouldnt read games or any disks just would say reading then open tray
so i wanted to pull the key and put on another drive
I turned it on went to pull the key and i felt like i burned myself on the chip
i turned it off
unsoldered and cleaned everything
plugged it in and the chip was warm but more so normal
redid the fix and bam its completely hot again...
trying to read through the forums now very confusing so many different fixes a long the lines
also the 1.8v regulator also gets very warm
I read this could be caused by putting the cable in upside down?
I do not believe this is the issue because i have done several xboxs and knew that rule from the beginning
I also tried sticking it in upside down and it was very hard i didnt even want to try to force it so i really do not believe thats it i would of def noticed
well my 101 trace is gone
but the other one is fine
I am very confused about the 3.3v ground test
Does it need to be plugged in?
what setting 200k?
seems like my readings were jumping all over the place
I am a newb to this all so dont make to much fun on my soldering skills lol
well thanks for any help
back to reading and seeing if i can understand this
Is my drive basically this big black chip that gets hot, Like is my firmware on it?
Would i be able to swap it to another l-o board i dont use and just pull the key from there?
just to add i only want key off this drive to put on another so if i can just do that ill be happy
