I just recently purchased an Original Xbox and It seems to not be working properly. Every time I turn it on It comes up with Error 07 Screen with “Service required. Call Customer Support”
Sorry for the bad picture of the error I couldn’t get my capture card working with the Original Xbox. Anyway, I googled this problem and it says error 07 most of the time is the
IDE cable is not properly connected. Please reattach the ide cable. Not only to the harddisk drive but also to the dvd drive. ALso try to reconnect the ide cable to the motherboard.
Press pretty hard so it goes all the way in. Make sure it is seated straight and proper in the drives and the motherboard. If you still have an error 7. Try another ide cable. If that won’t work try another harddisk. If there is still no go, try to set the jumpers on the rearside of the harddisk drive. Set it to master or cable select…
So knowing that I opened up the xbox and disconnected and reconnected the IDE cable and to my astonishment it worked… for a little bit…
My question I have is does anyone know a way to fix this permanently. I don’t want to have to keep disconnecting and reconnecting the IDE cable just to play a game.
Also I know this seem stupid that I’m posting this. Most of you will probably say just go buy another one there cheap, but I just wanted to see if I could fix it. I don’t know.
Thanks for reading this far…
