    Hey guys i have a really old xbox, one of the firsts that i aquired off a friend who got it off a friend. There has never been an attempted mod or anything but the thing is basicly dead. I figured i could fix it becuase ive fixed 3 before but this one really has me. Basicly, it does nothing when u turn it on except the green led comes on and the fans start. There is zero picture not even the xbox logo comes up. The led stays green 2, it dosent frag or anything else, even when i have both the drives up. It seems to me like its not even doing anything when i turn it on, no noises or anything. My only guess is that it got totaled by a powersurge, but it seems like the power converter is fine. I really i dont know, but anyone else got an idea?

    I doubt it was a powersurge, because your system would not start up at all then most likely if it blew completely. Was the system dropped maybe or just beaten on pretty hard in the past?

    How long has this problem been going on for?

    I wonder if it is just a video problem on your t.v. or Xbox. Have you tried a different video/audio cable to see if that worked? I know that sounds stupid, but you never know. It is just weird that your Xbox starts up and shows the green light, but there is just no picture on the screen.

    I would just say either part this thing out on eBay or sell the whole box on eBay, I bet you could get at least $50 (U.S) for it.

    or you could send it to me for free :)

    check that all your cables are plugged in all the way....


    ***Edit

    You think that would be silly, but I bought a "broken" xbox that flashed "red and green" off ebay for $50 and it turns out they just never had a AV cable plugged into it...it worked just fine!

    Lol, yea dont worry ik the cables were in all the way. I tried it on 3 tvs, with 3 diff sets of cables. It does however flash green and orange when they arnt in. As for if it has been droped, quite possibly, like i said im the third owner so i dont know what has happend in the past. You think taking a multimeter to the av plug is worth doing, and comparing to a working one. Thats really all i can think of, the thing looks fine inside, thanks for the ideas though.
