Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
When i turn on my xbox it does not work. one day when i turned it on it sparked so i opened it and the power supply to the fan is fried. can i wire it somewhere else
I am taking a look at the MoBo right now and I cant see any visible traces to the fan connector. I would suggest saving up for a new one. Preferably a Falcon board 360.

Well I have understood when you get the three lights and the fans are not working you have to try fixing the first posibilities, like reflowing CPU, GPU, and RAM if one of these do not fix the problem then your motherboard has one MOSFET mess up and need to be replace. When you have overheating problems and your fans are not working, well this is not going to sound so good but helps a lot, what you have to do is cut off the cables from the fan and take the cables out and get them conected to some AC Adaptor and set it to 6V, so this will resolve your problems with overheating. Hope this help.

I short circuited my positive and red wires to my fans (which are 5.5 and i though they were 12 volts) while trying to wire in leds like a ********, is there some sort of voltage regulator that fried? because as soon as i turn on my xbox my voltage meter says that there's about 10.5 volts coming from the fan pins. When I put any sort of load on to the pins, like a fan or a couple of leds in series its like the pins short circuit and im left with .80 volts. then I have to restart my xbox to get 10.5 volts again. btw this is a jasper console. So im guessing its a voltage regulator or a transistor located near the ran pins.
