Default Original Xbox Replacement Caps

I've been modding Original Xbox consoles for over ten years.
As these things age I find myself becoming more of a refurbisher.

The most common problem is the clock capacitor which tends to leak.
This is illustrated in the first 2 attached pictures below.
The faulty capacitor is a SuperStor 1F 2.5v SuperCap (console v1.0 to 1.5)
It wasnt until the final Original Xbox version 1.6 that the cap was replaced,
with a Nichicon 1F 2.5v Gold SuperCap, as seen in the 3rd picture.

I came across and have been looking for replacement caps at "mouser.com"
I've noticed that smaller caps like 22uf 25v have a life span of around 2000hrs
Medium sized have life span of around 5 to 7k hrs and 10k for the largest (psu) caps.
I'd like these console to last another decade, I'm considering replacing most,
if not all caps on the motherboards and power supply units.

The 4th picture is a Xbox version 1.0 motherboard (with cpu fan)
13x 25v 22uf Nippon SMG
6x 25v 100uf Nichicon VR
3x 16v 1500uf Nichicon PW
2*x 10v 3300uf Nichicon PW
1x 10v 680uf Nichicon PW
5x 6.3v 1500uf Nippon KZE (6th picture)
1x 1F 2.5v SuperStor

The 5th picture is a Xbox version 1.1 motherboard (without cpu fan)
13x 25v 22uf Nippon SMG
6x 25v 100uf Nichicon VR
3x 16v 1500uf Nichicon PW
1*x 10v 3300uf Nichicon PW
1x 10v 680uf Nichicon PW
5x 6.3v 1500uf Unidentified Solid Cap (7th picture)
1x 1F 2.5v SuperStor

My Questions:
I have little experience and limited knowledge in regards to caps.
1) Would i need to replace solid caps with other solid caps or can I use wet caps?
2a) Would it be better to use caps with a higher ripple current and lower leakage current?
2b) Would it be better to use Nichicon HD series over PW series?
3a) Any advantage in using higher voltage caps whilst maintaining capacitance?
3b) For example 22uf 50v over 22uf 25v or 1500uf 10v over 1500uf 6.3v, etc...
4) What would be a better clock cap alternative to the SuperStor 1F 2.5v?

Thanks in advance, Nemo

you dont need the supercap, under 1.6 just leave it out.
on a 1.6 you need something so stuff a 100uf electrolytic there or the console wont start.

there is no cpu fan btw, that's the g-force3 gpu your refering to.
the cpu vrm caps - the 1500uf 6.3v must be *very* low esr or use poly's
for the rest, just use panasonic FR

finally, your unidentified caps are not solid, they are just electrolytics.
the symbol on them is Nichicon - they are HD series.

Default Re: Original Xbox Replacement Caps

I'm not sure if the Aerogel clock capacitor is actually defective. These capacitors are 1F, 2.5V, and IIRC, the clock capacitor is ran right at its maximum voltage (2.5V is the voltage the clock circuit runs at, if memory serves), which is why both the Aerogel capacitor and even sometimes the Nichicon UC capacitor (which bulges now and then because of that) has a limited life. Though, since the Aerogel capacitor almost always leaks from the bottom, it may be sealed very poorly. For what it's worth, I would just desolder the clock capacitor (from versions 1.0-1.5) and forget about it. It isn't very useful anyway - if you remove AC power, it only keeps the time for what, a few hours? Those ADDA hyprobearing fans that come with version 1.0 of the console tend to seize prematurely as well.

There are also a bunch of small SMD electrolytics as you can see - one is 47uF 16V, six are 10uF 16V. Nichicon 85C (WX series very likely), Chemi-con 85C (MV series - can be identified by the shield), and Suncon (Sanyo) 85C (CBS series, from what I can tell) SMD electrolytics are all used interchangeably there. The 3300uF 6.3V Nichicon HMs were also known to go bad in versions 1.2-1.6 (2002-2005 datecodes) of the console, in the VRM input and output. I believe there is also one more 680uF 16V HM (again 2002-2004 datecodes) used in version 1.2-1.5 (it's used interchangeably with a Panasonic FJ of the same value). Never seen it actually go bad, but it wouldn't hurt to replace all the electrolytics, as you said.

these "supercaps" are a joke, i had the datasheet for them.
they are rated for something like 500 charge/discharge cycles.
after that - it's anybody's guess what they do - other than piss themselves on the board above some fets.

I attached the datasheet for both Nichicon UC and Aerogel Powerstor B series.

Worst of all, both capacitors are only rated for 1,000 hours @ 70*C, both load life and shelf life.

I agree with the both of you to remove the clock cap

Yea so I've noticed, they can be surprising loud.
I've been trying to find a replacement, I found similiar heat sink fans.
But there only 40x40mm where 40x50mm is needed to be mounted properly.
Maybe i'll just slide in a standard 40x40x10mm fan and secure somehow.

Thats right, versions 1.2-1.5 have those HM series caps.

Questions:
Do you guys prefer Panasonic over Nichicon?
Picture 6 (1.0mobo) you can see the two black caps to the right (3300uf 10v),
Picture 7 (1.1mobo) there is only one but the cap is still allocated on the board,
Could this be filled in? Would there be any benefit?

Cheers, Nemo

pana vs nichi is like atari vs comodore - we could start a war over it!

why dont you get a passive gpu sink from a dead xbox higher than 1.0 ?

LoL... no worries
I have 5x 1.0 consoles atm
and 2x dead 1.6 consoles
I would still be shy by 3 heatsinks

that list is no good, you made the classic mistake of not including diameter and where it's under something - height.

also, put the part number for the psu's because there are multiple models for different markets.

I can fix that up once I've come back from the dentist later this afternoon.

True, these PSU are from the Australian market
The PSU I listed earlier are all "Delta"
Also come across a couple "FoxLink" PSU's in some v1.0's
I will also make a listing for it when I get a chance.

Attached are 2 pictures of a Delta PSU from a v1.4-1.5
Picture 2 shows "DPSN-96BP-1" is this the part number?

Those Nichicon HDs aren't hybrid polymers. They are wet electrolytics in laminated cases.

1x 1F 2.5v SuperStor!
Not much of a "super" stor if it leaks from the bung upon every glance.

Quote:
1x 50v 10uf Ltec (Gold)
LTEC ST series.

Quote:
1x 25v 47uf Ltec (Blue/Green)
LTEC LZG series? Might not hurt to replace it if it's a startup capacitor (I think it is).

Quote:
2x 25v 100uf Nippon KY
Those are the capacitors for filtering the linear regulated +3.3VSB output (that's why these units only have two optocouplers).
Quote:
2x 200v 330uf Taicon?
Two Taicon VZs in the voltage doubler. Those may be safe to keep.
Quote:
3x 10v 2200uf Nippon KY
Two of those are in parallel for the +5V output, one for +3.3V.
Quote:
1x 16v 1000uf Nippon KY
That's the +12V filtering capacitor.

Quote:
3x 6.3v 1500uf Nichicon HD (Solid)
Those aren't solid capacitors.

Quote:
3x 50v 0.22uf Taicon?
Taicon VX?

Quote:
2x 25v 100uf Taicon?
Taicon PW and VX for filtering +3.3VSB.
Quote:
1x 25v 47uf Taicon?
Taicon VX.
Quote:
3x 10v 2200uf Ltec (Blue/Green)
As before, two LZGs for +5V, one for +3.3V.
Quote:
1x 16v 1000uf Ltec (Blue/Green)
+12V filtering capacitor, LZG series. The LTECs and Taicons may or may not be safe to keep in both units, as these Delta units run quite a bit cooler than the Foxlink equivalents, especially on the secondary side (the Foxlink heatsinks get much hotter which can't be good for the stock Teapo SC and SEK capacitors, or for that matter the hard drive chassis sitting right above it).

CapXon GS and GL. And that's actually a Samsung power supply made in Tuscany as evidenced by the transformer part number. And yes, DPSN-96BP-1 is the part number. Also, those early Foxlink units were the worst when it came to cracked solder joints in the AC inlet (FTPS-0001, except revision D, and FTPS-0002 were the affected models - the socket and inlet were only held in place by two measly plastic clips so eventually the solder would break with repeated insertions and disconnections of the power cord).

I had troubles trying to identify the caps on the FoxLink PSU
As you could see in the picture the caps are covered in glue.
I also Included values and measurements for the PSU fuses.

The last three pictures show fuses, T means they're "time delay" fuses, then you have the current and voltage.

The first picture shows some capacitors, most likely made by Teapo if I'm going by the color and the shape of the vent. If you want to be more accurate, you'll just have to use a sharp blade to cut the glue and desolder the capacitors to read the capacitance and voltage rating.

The glue is there just to prevent components from vibrating and/or popping out of the pcb holes when these pcbs go through wave soldering. You can cut it out without damaging the power supply.

ps. pay attention to those gray and green wires, the insulation is almost cut. may want to put some tape around the cables for safety.

Just to be clear on this, though I may not be 100% correct on this, the "WX" capacitors can be identified by these markings:

[Letter][Number]
[Capacitance]
[Voltage]

"WT" (105*C SMD electrolytics by Nichicon) have a "P" after the number (the datecode).

Chemi-con MV SMD capacitors can be identified by a shield on the markings. And I think the Suncon (Sanyo) ones reverse the letter and numbers on the datecode and have a slightly different font.

1x 400v 180uf TEAPO? (25x30mm)
That would be Teapo LXK or LH. Sometimes they used Chemi-con SMH in this position.

Quote:
2x 25v 100uf TEAPO? (6x11mm)
There is a 100uF 25V Teapo SEK (brown sleeve) on the primary side which acts a a startup capacitor. The green and gold sleeved Teapo SC (100uF 25V) on the secondary is before the standby regulator. There appears to be a ventless, brown Teapo SEK after it - not sure what the value is either since it's drenched in glue and removing the glue could compromise the sleeve (if you're not careful whilst removing the glue with a blade, as mariushm said), but I'd guess smaller than 100uF 25V. Perhaps 47uF 25V.

Quote:
1x 1000uf 16v TEAPO? (10x20mm)
Teapo SC, +12V filtering. From what I can see, there is a 13x20 2200uF 10V Teapo SC before the ferrite coil on the +5V rail and possibly an 8x20 1000uF 10V Teapo SC after the ferrite coil (forming a PI filter). The +3.3V rail appears to have one 1000uF 10V 8x15 Teapo SC before and after the ferrite coil in the PI filter. Their sleeves do appear to be partially covered in glue, so this is my best guess. The later Foxlinks (FTPS-0007) used two 2200uF 10V 10x25 Teapo SCs in parallel for +5V filtering and one for +3.3V. These are the stock capacitors, and obviously there were better choices when it came to brand.

Could not identify the following caps:
C23, C19, C17, C21, C15, & unknown C??
Those are all Teapo SEK, probably on the decoupling side of the secondary logic. You may need to desolder them to identify them at all if they aren't draped and awash in glue (which you'd have to remove, again).

Watch out - these are known to go bad even if they don't show it. They are notorious for going leaky (partially shorted) during this time period.

Thanks again, Very Knowledgeable

Ill get around to having a good look at that FoxLink PSU,
when I get a chance but not in any particular hurry atm.

Took a few pictures of the SMDs
Maybe you could help Identify, please...
Pictures, from left to right:
1) Version 1.0-1.1
2) Version 1.4-1.5
3) Version 1.6
4) Version 1.2-1.3

Found this fuse on Mouser.com
Would this be a suitable replacement?
"Bel Fuse MRT 3.15"
(For all PSU's excluding FoxLink)

1) 47uF 16V - Nichicon WX, 10uF 16V - Chemi-con MV
2) 47uF 16V - Nichicon WX, 10uF 16V - Nichicon WX
3) 47uF 16V - Nichicon WX, 10uF 16V - Chemi-con MV
4) 47uF 16V - Nichicon WX, 10uF 16V - Chemi-con MV

I noticed a blue, ventless capacitor in the 1.0 - 1.1 image. That's either Panasonic M or Nichicon VX series, depending on whether there's a boxed M logo on the sleeve or if it says Nichicon.
