I know I am impatient, but today I picked up my new 1.4 ghz Xbox (made by trusty, but not bought from him!).
I changed the PSU (US->EU) and tried it and it gave me the well known christmas lights after trying to boot 3 times.
at first I thought it would just be the CPU/CPU adapter that got loose, actually it was but even after getting this fixed it gave me christmas lights.
After that I found a broken Capacitor and all the Acid is all over the board in a radius of about an inch.
I took it to the local electric shop guy, he told me to come back on tuesday, he is going to change that Cap (didnīt want to do it myself on such exclusive/expensive Hardware).
is there any chance of getting this thing to work again with just replacing the Cap and cleaning the board?
Or could there may be more damge caused by the Acid?
It was insured so money ainīt the problem but I would still like to know....
itīs the Cap in the lower left corner with the blue mark on it (this Picture was taken by the seller! actually this blue dot makes it look suspicious.....)
thanks for (hopefully) keeping me from freaking out that it doesnīt work after waiting one month -.-
