Details for Error code E09/0021

Bridged solderjoint/Short - GPU/Southbridge



3 red lights

 
Details
Primary Error code:3 red lights 3 RLOD
E-Code / Secondary Error code:E09 (No Audio/Video) / 0021
Binary/Hex:00001001 / 0x09 -> 9
Known fixes:

1)If you worked on the mainboard recently(soldered or so) remove these wires because you might be drawing too much power from the Southbridge
Also look for missing/bridged components like capacitors/resistors
2) X-Clamp replacement
3) Southbridge X-Clamp-Fix
4) Reflow the Southbridge/Ethernet chip area
5) Reball the Southbridge - bridged solder
6) if you work in dumping lite-on 8xxxx and 9xxxx with jumper, Check your dvd drive pcb (board) again, if there's still some shorting.
7) Wrong GPU model (e.g. Zephyr/Falcon GPU reballed onto a Xenon board).

Description:

This error is caused by a bridged solder joint under GPU or Southbridge. It can also be power related(the Southbridge isnt getting enough power). Can also be a component that is missing or damaged so look for missing and bridged parts(caps etc) near the Southbridge

i have error with 2006 xenon.
0021 error (3 light red),process reballing gpu and o.k full work ,

Had a missing cap near the main power input plug. So I put a cap back in that
place and replaced the gpu. (Just to be safe) and now its green lights :)

I had this error with a Jasper, I reballed GPU still got 0021 so I decided to
reball the southbridge next and bam up popped the green lights xbox is all good
now.

that'd be dash 7363, not 7636... ;)

Had a console with this, was a bad gpu, had a hell of a time fixing it. after a
new gpu still gave 0021, after no luck with several reflows i flushed the sb,
ram and cpu with alcohol and ran annother reflow, changed to 0102, flushed the
gpu and ram again, reflowed it and i got green lights ;) dash 7636 ;)

no need to replace or reball only check this c2c1; c2c2; c2c3 or c2c4 the
correct value is 1uF if not that it's problem

 

hexxxxxx on 2012-10-21 07:33:20 :

i can confirm 0021 is a bridge under gpu and need re-ball our may need a gpu
replacement.

I always seem to have to replace gpu after this error 90% of the time.

 

puntt on 2012-06-01 23:20:39 :

burnt southbridge caused this error. Had to replace southbridge.

This error is also caused by a missing capacitor.

 

bigart666 on 2011-02-24 07:35:38 :

i can confirm 0021 is a bridge under gpu had a virgin 0022 then reflow then 0102
then reflow 0021 time to reball

 

Silvarion on 2010-11-29 17:59:51 :

Got this one on a LiteON 7xxxx with cracked/broken PCB on the screw near the
corner. Also 0020 on another with bridged solder on a trace that was cut.

I had this code with a Jtag Xenon using the 2 diode and jumper method. It was
random and I would need to let my system sit for 10+ minutes before playing it
again.

This error was resolved by using the 3 330ohm resistor (old) method instead of
the newer diode method.

IF you trying to JTAG a falcon and it gives you this code after you wired the
jumpers then check the jumper from j2d2 4 and 7. It may draw too much current
and trip the error.

Simply put a diode, 1n4148, same diode as the other 2, with the cathode (black
side) towards pin 4 in place of the jumper.

I had one Jasper with 93450c, and error was found in connector at dvd-rom side.
When console were powered on there was no (specific start-up) sound of
dvd-drive.
The solution for this problem was to bend a little bit (absolutely very little)
to center on both pin lines. I wanted to be sure that there IS connection with
every pin. And it worked.

To be clear. Before this error there was fixed burned pin101 connection.
