Hi everyone, I would just like to know if anyone has experienced this issue, and possibly knows of a fix? Now I have gone through numerous steps in eliminating possible causes of the random restarts, e.g: cleared hdd cache, removed hdd, used a usb pen instead of hdd, unplugged all usb devices from all ports, changed HDMI cables and switched HDMI ports, Checked all connections, Cleaned faceplate, so no oils or dirt maybe causing console to power off.........Everything!!! LOL Now I think personally, I may have rooted out what the main cause of the issue is. Since I purchased my xk3y over a year ago now, it worked absolutely fine in Emulation mode, However if I booted the console in Passthru mode, then my console would restart intermittently, just like it has been doing since I removed my xk3y due to it developing a fault with the sd memory card reader. So my conclusion is, that I believe it is the slim dvd drive at fault. As I could use the console just fine, and never experienced one reset or restart, when using the console in Emulation mode with the Xk3y. I've even switched out the Sata cables, to see if it was just the Sata cable that was at fault, but the console seems to restart intermittently still. I can play for hours at a time sometimes, or just an hour or so, and then the console may restart, also even after just 30 mins it may sometimes restart. This has only started happening since I plugged in my dvd drive and removed my xk3y. Does anyone know what I could check for, possibly if I take out the drive? Also the drive make and model is: Liteon DG-16D4S 9504 - Now 0272 Orig Firmware I may need to know how to check the drive for shorts, i'm thinking it maybe related to the Sata port on the back of the dvd drive? I am in progress of getting my xk3y fixed, as my xkey card reader was having trouble reading the sd cards, because of it not making contact with the pins correctly. I'm going to hard wire an sd card to the pins to prevent this from happening again, as the card reader is just too flimsy and poor quality IMO. I'm just in the process of dissassembling my 360 slim at this point, so will post back with any findings, and will open up my drive, and take a look at the pcb. If anyone can help with this issue, your help will truly be appreciated. Thank you I'm missing playing all my favorite games LOL P.S sorry for the long post, just that I wanted to provide as much info as possible.
