New hardware recieved on easter
Easter is just over for like 2 days and I can tell you:
Its awesome to get home and receive allot of packages at once and stuff you got just before you left.
I dont tell all the stories but to keep it simple. 2 oldskool pc's from a friend of mine (x486 series) a keyboard and a NXP LPCXpresso protoboard for free. few lcd screens 24 x 2 character dot displays and a Sound recorder board for a few euro's from my favorite store Baco.
Also I got a few packages that I got from on-line stores, a few Zilog IO chips (not in the main picture) and a Xbox one (1.4 or 1.5)Virgin. after the read-more some detailed pictures so you can get some data-sheets or whatever. btw, those LCDs? they have some more left for 2,5 euro;s and 16x2 for 3,5 wich are also on-line. If you visit them in Ijmuiden you also can buy a red LED matrix board with 20x100 LEDs or something 3,5 euros but water damage.
So, go take a look. anyway, I'm back programming that Arduino project with 45 buttons. Ill post pictures and sourcecode of that soon.
A new xbox and Math failing
Last night I received a package from England. It contained a Black Xbox one console and an AV cable. Litle bit dirty and a few pieces of plastic broken on the underside of the xbox, and a jamming DVD tray. Sold as "Microsoft Xbox (8 GB) Black Video Game Console FAULTY
This for a FAULTY black xbox video game console
The console was working up till about 6 months ago but suddenly stopped it will power up but the disc tray will not open
I would say that this is simple fault and could be easily fixed by someone who knows what they are doing
I just do not have the time to start messing with it"Read more about me and failing math.
Fixed an broken DVD drive
December 2010 I got my second Xbox 360, to Jtag it. But before I was able to Jtag it I did something wrong. You see this picture? its the xbox 360 freshly opened and unmodded. 2 minutes later there was some smoke and smell of burning pcb.
Let me tell you, It was all my own fault. But I learned allot and this story is going to end Good... well Its not over yet. read on after the break.
