For those of you that have a blown & irreparable v1.2/1.3 Xbox power supply unit, you can now use a v1.0/v1.1 Xbox power supply unit to replace it. Lik-Sang offer a replacement v1.0/v1.1 (variable input) power supply.

What you will need:
Connector from v1.2/1.3 power supply or Connector from ATX 20 pin PC power supply.
Soldering iron & solder
Heat shrink or electrical tape
v1.0/v1.1 Xbox power supply


The v1.0/1.1 PSU connector has got 12 wires connecting to the motherboard.
The v1.2/1.3 PSU connector has got 15 wires (extra wire colors are: 1 x Black/1 x Orange/1 x Red) connecting to the motherboard.

We want to connect the 1.2/1.3 PSU connector to the 1.0/1.1 PSU by connecting the following:

Pin assignment of the connecting Xbox V1.0/V1.1 PSU to v1.2/1.3 PSU:

V1.0/1.1   V1.2/1.3
PIN 1 CONNECTS TO PIN 11
PIN 2 CONNECTS TO PIN 1
PIN 3 CONNECTS TO PIN 2
PIN 4 CONNECTS TO PIN 3 & PIN 13
PIN 5 CONNECTS TO PIN 7 & PIN 18
PIN 6 CONNECTS TO PIN 15
PIN 7 CONNECTS TO PIN 5
PIN 8 CONNECTS TO PIN 9
PIN 9 CONNECTS TO PIN 14
PIN 10 CONNECTS TO PIN 16 & PIN 19
PIN 11 CONNECTS TO PIN 20
PIN 12 CONNECTS TO PIN 10

 

Pin configurations are as follows:

This is looking from above at the CONNECTOR at the end of the PSU....not from above the connector on the motherboard - have a look at your PSU connector and it will be as clear as day.

The colors shown are the original PSU colors, and the other 3 colors on the v1.0 are the only 3 different colors that the generic PSU supplied by Lik-Sang uses. The 'X' indicates pins that are not required for the version 1.2/1.3.

Join each wire, soldering each one, and insulate with heat shrink or insulation tape.

Plug it in and go!
