Need to find the standby line on a power supply for a motorola dcx3400 cable box to run an original Xbox? Answered
I had purchased the box from a resale shop to use for parts. It occurred to me that I could use the PSU to power my blown xbox. Both are manufactured by Delta. So I used my multimeter (first time using one) to get a pin out of the psu at the connector. 16 pins from top to bottom as shown.
I know i rounded off these values and I can go back and use the slight variations in readings to find "rails."(?)My issue is as far as I can tell, all of the pins are powered when the psu is plugged in, and I cannot tell which is the standby if there is one. What test can I do to find it? And if there is no standby, can I safely use this to power an xbox?
thanks for your time,
