My symptoms are slightly different, as I hear / see / smell NOTHING when I attempt to power on my XB1 original, using a known good power supply. Other units I have repaired in the past exhibited these symptoms when the power button ribbon cable inside the top cover was disconnected. After checking this unit, however, the cable was correctly installed. Any thoughts?
