    Cleanest CK3 Probe to PMT Probe Conversion Tutorial

    I really didn't like what the current PMT solutions for the CK3 Probe were doing, so I decided to make my own.

    I managed it with two jumper wires, a button, and a couple trace cuts. The original LEDs still work too! The Blue LED lights up when 3.3 V power is available and the Green LED lights up once the button is pressed and 3.3 V is being supplied to the drive! I used the same connector for the probe, so everything looks just as if nothing has been changed!

    If you have the soldering skills, I recommend doing this!

    Instructions
    On the CK3 Probe
    1.- Make the trace cuts shown in the image.
    2.- Scrape off some solder mask (white stuff) and tin the traces where you will be placing the button.
    3.- Remove transistor and place jumper wire.
    4.- Solder longer jumper wire as shown.
    5.- Finally, scrape off some solder mask next to one of the solder points on the pogo pin and add some solder in order to connect the pin to ground.

    On the connector which plugs into the supply side
    1.- Cut the red wire as close to the connector as possible.
    2.- Cut the blue wire which is connected to the brown wire. DO NOT pull out the brown wire!
    3.- Join the red and blue wires together.
    4.- Heat shrink/tape the ends together so as to not make a short.

    That's it! Easy!

    Enjoy everyone!

    Re: Cleanest CK3 Probe to PMT Probe Conversion Tutorial

    I have a different Probe revision like the one shown here: http://pictures.xbox-scene.com/xbox3...K3_PROBE-3.jpg

    Do you know what kind of changes I would need to make to your setup to use it with my probe?

    I would need a clearer picture in order to help you out. It's probably not very different from what I did though.

    Here's a picture of mine with the traces highlighted. Red goes underneath the board and connects to the probe as well as all the components on the probe side of the board.

    It's different than probe of tutorial on page 1.

    Can you tell me how to modify my probe ? The cuts and wires are different.

    Thanks

    I have a potential solution, though it's completely UNTESTED and unless you know what's going on I would avoid it for now. Here are the steps to take:

    Drive connector side:
    -Cut red wire close to connector
    -Cut the blue wire going into the same spot as the brown
    -Join the two from their long ends (CK3 blue wire connects to the red wire that's headed for the Probe)

    Probe side:
    -Cut and swap the Red (3.3v) and Black (GND) wires so that Black goes where Red was and vice versa
    -Remove all board components (lights, resistors, etc)
    -Cut trace on both sides of the spot where the pogo pin connects to the board
    -At the jack for the cable, connect the Left and Right wires with a switch. The middle goes straight to the pogo pin.

    That should do it. I'm going to test on a drive from a dead 360 to make sure there's nothing fatally wrong with the setup. I'll post full details with pics when I get a working model.

    EDIT: Tested, working.
    BE SURE TO INSULATE YOUR CONNECTIONS - I LEFT THEM OPEN SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING
