Missing Capacitor During Clock Removal

Postby Brellik » Sat Feb 17, 2018 4:18 am

I opened up my xbox and found capacitor C7G6 was missing. This was my brother in laws who has had it since he was a kid, 2006. I am not sure where they would have bought it but there is no way he removed this capacitor. As you can see in the picture it looks like it was burnt. Does anyone have an idea on how this would have happened. It is definitely not rolling around inside. Is this capacitor important do I need to replace it?

does the system run ok without it ? have you noticed any issues or crashes etc? if not then I would say it would be ok, but it probably wouldnt hurt to replace it, maybe do some googling and find out what its purpose is, it may not be totally needed, or could only affect a very specific action you do on the console,

as for how it happened, im stumped, im guessing the warranty stickers on the bottom weren't broken before you opened it ? if so then i can only assume it burnt off somehow and eventually escaped the case...would have no clue as to how though

I have been using it for about a year and no issues, but not sure how long its been burnt out. I cleaned up the board and no real damage, luckily clock cap hadn't leaked yet. Thanks for the responses, i will look into replacing the burnt out cap down the road.

Looks like some dingleberry thought that was the clock cap, I guess. Did they try to remove it with a blowtorch or something, what does the bottom look like? You should replace it if you can regardless if it is boot essential or not. You'll likey need to repair those through holes/eyelets first though, so start from there.

I always loved that one. It's a good median between full blown roast and light sizzle. Added bonus It's also immune to censorship!

Oh yes, nothing but professionalism in these here parts. We know the lingo. Hopefully that is all the board needs because an eyelet repair kit is more money than an Xbox today!

After googling it, someone stated in https://assemblergames.com/threads/xbox ... 7g6.59690/, that:

" You're looking for a 25V 22μF cap."

Hope this helps. :D :D
