Details for Error code E01/0001

Short circuit in the console/faulty PSU



3 red lights

 
Details
Primary Error code:3 red lights 3 RLOD
E-Code / Secondary Error code:E01 (No Audio/Video) / 0001
Binary/Hex:00000001 / 0x01 -> 1
Known fixes:

1) Make sure your PSU is working and replace it if it isnt
2) Scan the mainboard and make sure that there is nothing that might short something out, like metal chipping, components, that move out of place while heatgunning, etc.
3) Replace MOSFETs and regulators that are known to cause it if they were blown
4) Check if the standby voltages are existent, if they are not at a certain area replace the parts in the area which are likely to be defective.
5) Reflow the CPU, HANA chip
In rare cases a reflow might also fix it.
6) X-Clamp replacement
The GPU heatsink might be shorting out if you screwed it in too tight...

Description:

This error can be triggered by a faulty power supply or a short in the console. The short is located near one of the main supply lines, so mostly not under the chips, it might also be a blown capacitor fuse or just a bridged contact. Also damaged DVD power cable.

I got this error because the HDD was not fully plugged in all the way inside the
HDD case. I plugged it in correctly and the console booted right up.

So I had 0001 I tried the MOSFET fix and it worked! The way I found out was
shorting out all the MOSFETs and only two made sparks.MOSFET u5b1 and u5b2 were
the problem .

If you "mod up" with extra LED's to make it look more
effective I.E ghost cases etc. Ensure all wires are electrical taped together
and that there is no dodgy looking connections. Also make sure that DVD power
cable is connected properly, sounds dumb but something like that can cause this
error.

Change power Mosfet Q6B1 was my problem then console fire up and ran fine after
I change it.

Can confirm that a faulty DVD power cable was the problem. Just replaced it and
now the console is working! However, there is a faint buzzing sound somewhere on
the board. Dont know if this is another problem but at least the console is
working for now.

So, does anyone know where i can get replacement MOSFETS for a Zephyr board? i
have had a look around, but to no avail.

 

Coldlm on 2011-08-22 08:39:04 :

and i just forgot about it on (when i say on with 3 lights and no pwoer !)
the ANA chip was hot abit !!!!!!!!!

 

Coldlm on 2011-08-22 07:39:24 :

i got ram error !
did the oven fix then i got ana error !!!
so i tried to see if i can put my hand under it and hold it tight to see if it
boots !
stoped working and i got 0001 error with red light flashing for a hal a secong
on the psu and then it goes to normal orange light with no voltage on the mother
board !
i dont know if i shortened something or not but what the hell is going on ?

chainsaw how do you that exactly ?

Can confirm DVD power cable from multiple instances. Check PSU first (easiest)
then try replacing the power cable to the DVD drive (the cable with white ends).
This can potentially save youa couple of hours, and maybe more often than you
might think.

I have replace Bad ANA Chip and I solve this problem.. If the power supply is ok
and the IC regulator and other is ok, then check ANA and replace.

 

xbox-jedi on 2011-05-27 19:11:37 :

ATTENTION: This is a tricky error!
We had a reflowed console go to this AFTER an e74 error, so we unplugged
everything,
read a little here on xbox-experts,
went back and plugged it in and BAM it's running perfectly,
++ hours of gaming on it now!

loose power connection!!

 

Colorado880 on 2011-05-26 05:30:05 :

Got this after installing some LEDs to the 12v power under the PSU. I fixed by
just adding some tape

 

manlix on 2011-03-06 20:16:49 :

where i can buy the mosfets ? i have the error 0001 and 0002 in another xbox is
the same fix ?

 

knowoneishome on 2011-01-26 05:00:50 :

Always check the Power Supply first!!! I replaced the mosfet's first and
reflowed second but it did not fix the problem. I tested the power supply in two
other consoles and got the 0001 error. The power supply light was always
orange...never turned red so I did not suspect it to be faulty...but it was.

You may get this error if you have not fully pushed the power cable into the
power port. Ensure the cable is pushed in as far as it can go (You will hear a
click in most cases when it's pushed far enough).

 

koriashi on 2010-11-04 05:25:18 :

ok, so im getting this error code but as SOON as I turn it on the power supply
clicks and flashes red for like a half second then goes back orange. I get no
fan or dvd action. I checked all over the motherboard and I didnt find anything
wrong. Idk if its the MOSFETS because I have no way of checking them. jus
wondering if anybody knows why the psu led just flashes one time and goes back
to orange.. thanks
