This is caused by trace corrosion. I wouldn't say it is a common problem but it does happen with some Xbox boards. Typical symptoms are the power button not working, the unit powering on by itself when plugged in, the unit shutting off after an indeterminate amount of time. You can see a guide to fixing the issue as well as some good pictures of the culprit traces here: http://forums.llamma...pic.php?t=12329
Here is another version: http://forums.llamma...pic.php?t=12694
I've had this issue with only one of the many Xbox's I've had and I was able to repair it at practically no cost. I don't believe I used that guide though. I used a conductive pen instead. It worked but bypassing the traces is better if you can do it.
I've got 2 now with weird power problems. The links above do not work. I've found some other tutorials, but I'm looking for all the good non-youtube guides I can find. Any ideas where I could find this version (if it has been moved or cross-posted)?

Hi all, I've checked out the trace corrosion link on theisozone link and it looks like I have the same problem. Just wanted to post a picture to see what you guys think.
