I got an xbox original recently. I tested it and got the error 11. I inspected the Drive to see if I could fix it. It seems that the most common solution is to replace it, which is pretty difficult to do nowadays. So I am trying my luck here if there is a slight chance to repair it.

  The cable is working (I swapped the harddisk and DVD, same error 11, I believe I would have had an error 7 otherwise).
  The power cable seems to work:
     the disc motor is spinning (although it is very loud)
     the tray does not open but I tested the motor and it is working and open the tray when powered. I cleaned the mechanism.
     the laser is not sliding but I tested the motor and it is working also.
     Not sure how to test the laser, but when I power off the xbox the laser head move slightly, which suggests that it is powered as well.

I would think that the mechanical part of this device is ok. If the laser is dead will it return an error 11?

Is there any possible way I can fix it?

I just got this original Xbox (and I had one 20 years ago, so nostalgia is there). It is a v1.0/v1.1 (NTSC). It is not modded and also the DVD (Philips VAD6011) is not working (error 11, I will send a separate post on this one to ask if I can repair this drive).

What is the best a way to hardmod (modchip or TSOP flashing) so to revive this console and play from the harddisk (original or a new one). I read quite a few forums already and pretty much all the time the console has to be either softmodded already so to benefit from a custom dashboard functionalities or the dvd drive has to be working so to used a Hexen or other DVDs. I have none of those.

I am pretty handing with a solder (Aladdin XT Plus2 modchips seems easy to get) and overall IT stuff.

The xbox needs to be either have a mod chip fitted or bios flashed or the least intrusive is a softmod (Splinter Cell or Mechassualt exploit)

There are dedicated sections in the forums with FAQ's that explain how to do it.
