XBOX [Original] – Assessing the Damage

Here’s something for the modern gamers out there. An XBOX that a friend has was dug out of his garage and looked over. We found a few issues, such as the battery capacitor leaking over the mainboard. This will likely be a three parter, so stay tuned and check my other videos for more! Hopefully we’ll have Burnout Revenge running in the next few weeks.

Interesting placement of a random 9V battery, isn’t it?

These wires look like they should be connected to something… somewhere!

We can’t blame this one on the previous owner, a busted super cap. A glorified capacitor that acts in place of a back up battery. There’s nothing wrong with cell batteries, nor getting the time from the internet. At least Microsoft undid the damage in the later 1.6 revisions…
