Its a falcon, if your going to try the above mentioned tip, just be aware of plastic parts/connectors on the motherboard they may melt if you leave it too long or warp if you knock them while they are hot.



Good luck with your Baking.

Could anyone tell me how I can complete this fix so I can give my friend back a fixed xbox like he expects? thank you
It sounds like you have a short on the motherboard. Make sure there are no exposed wires, etc that could cause a short. I had the same exact problem with one of my JTAG's when the wiring was touching the frame of the DVD drive.

It really sounds like a short to me. Open the case and make sure there are no exposed wires or any metal wires touching metal surfaces. I had the same issue with a jtag. I just put some electrical tape around the wire and that fixed the issue.

I would make sure you haven't got a wire caught somewhere inside the case, check each wire over carefully as the short/break may not be visible immediately.

You need to disassemble the unit again and check for damaged wiring. It's sounding more and more like a motherboard short.

What would be something 2 look for that could be possibly a short in the motherboard? Im not really good with shorts and stuff like that
