Original Xbox ?Fried power board?

Postby apaul » Wed Aug 19, 2015 11:10 am

Hello.
I got an original Xbox today, for a very cheap price. It is a US model, which needs a 100W 12V power input. It does not power on, and I suspect that someone plugged it into a regular 220 power plug (I live in Europe).
What would be the best way to approach this? Should I try replacing the power board of the Xbox? Is there a possibility that other parts of the Xbox have also been fried if I am correct about what happened to it?

Thanks!

Use a multimeter to test the psu. It wouldn't hurt to take the board out and check under neath for trace damage.

The Xbox motherboard will be fine.

Test fuse. If not the fuse then replace the power board. There are enough of them around to not have to dick around with it.

I think the fuse is a pretty common fault for blowing, I remember these were sold with circuit breakers inline on the power cord from memory to over come this?
