Dear All,

I own a trinity with s-rgh, everything works, but for some unknown reason randomly, when I unplug my 360 from the wall, the console doesn't boot at all, and fan makes this weird noise, just like this video, to fix this and make the 360 run away, I have again to unplug the trinity from the wall, and after some tries the console is miraculous back to life, there's absolutely no problem with the fan.

Does anyone here knows the reason behind this, if I leave the console always on standby, waiting to be turn on again, without complete power off from the wall, this problem never happens, was the trinity meant to be always receiving power from the wall, or is it an internal component of the motherboard, which is at its imminent death like a cap, or some voltage regulator?

I believe it's a common problem with trinity, you can try to flash a new timing file.
Mine have the same issue but it happens randomly, flashing a new timing file made it happen less frequently but I was never able to sort it out completely.
I did try to solder everything again, and the same. Just the timing files helped.
If you find a better solution please post here as I guess there's a lot of trinities around there with the same issue.

sttranger,

It seems no one knows the reason behind it, thought of a possible bad capacitor, or maybe the voltage regulators which trinity boards are prone to fail, my guess is this was the first revision of slim mobos, and this model is prone to very weird issues, I always like to have a plug on/off to my entertainment gadgets (game consoles, televisions, etc) to protect them from power surges, and unnecessary wear, nothing better to disconnect completely a psu, all electronics components thank it.

It's gonna be timing file(s) and wire routing / soldering.
