    Original xbox system turns on, then shuts down after a few seconds. Is this an easy fix? Please help.

    Just shuts down? No "Service Required" screen?

    Just tried it again and here is what I got. Pushed power button, system turned on and then right back off. Then it turned back on and right back off again. Then it turned on it and displayed alternating red and green flashing lights. It stayed on doing that. Nothing came on the screen. I only turned it on once. All the above took place.

    Without an error code displayed, I really don't know where to start. Not knowing where to start, it might just be cheaper to buy a new (used) one.

    This would honestly be my suggestion considering how cheap you can get an X-Box for these days. However, if you really want to start somewhere I would start with the power supply hearing those symptoms.

    You're not gonna like this....

    1.Green/Red Flashing

    Problem: The Xbox will restart twice, and then flash red and green. This is known as the FRAG and can be caused by many reasons. Typically when you receive this error you will not have any video. Possible reasons you may get this is a bad bios image, a bad bios chip, the Nvidia MCPX chip is damaged, broken/damaged traces or solder splashes on the mother board.

    Fix: If you were doing any kind of soldering work (adding a Modchip or other type of mod) on or around your motherboard, make sure there are no solder splashes or that there are not solder bridges connecting any traces. If there are, desolder them. If you have not done any kind of modding to the unit, then its likely to be caused from a bad tsop image, or a bad chip. Try installing a Modchip to see if you can get the unit to boot. If the Xbox still gives a FRAG then it means another major component is bad and the motherboard needs to be replaced.
    Sounds like you need to get a new Xbox.
    Don't go away mad....just go away!
