Change The Fuse (mine was a 10Amp, if u dont have, use a 5Amp not a 13Amp - safer incase its short circuited)

It sounds like your power brink may have over heated or faulted. Please see this page for information.

Do u need a wireless adaptor to set up xbox live??


No, a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter is not required to access, and set up Xbox Live, but you will need an internet connection. If you are close enough to a modem or router, you can buy an Ethernet cord, and plug it in to both the modem/router, and firmly into your Xbox 360 console. You will either need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, or the Ethernet cord. Ethernet cords are very cheaper, much cheaper than a Wireless Adapter, but the Wireless Adapters are much or easier to reason with. So choose wisely with money.

The light is flashing orange on adapter and no power to system when turned on


It is possible that there is some foreign particles inside one of the connectors. Since the power supply does come apart and also disconnects from the unit, you can try to clean it to see if it will sort out your problem. Here's what to try:

1. Disconnect the AC adapter from the wall and the console. Let it rest for a few hours so that you do not electrocute yourself.

2. Disconnect the wall power cord from the AC adapter brick. Check the connections on both ends to see if it needs to be cleaned.

3. Clean any ends of the adapter with alcohol solution (isopropyl, or "rubbing" alcohol). Make sure the connection to the console is clean as well. Allow to dry.

4. Reconnect all necessary parts and try your console again.

If that does not work, there could be another problem with power flow to the AC adapter or a problem with the adapter itself.

The adapter usally turns green and orange but it is red its called fault alarm how do i fix it


The problem is heat. if you fix it yourself it will void any warrenty. they give you three years of warrenty on this heat issue. I have step by step manual to fix this, it takes about 45 min, and you have to buy plastic washers, 5mm bolts, and formula 5. I would send it to xbox personally. # 18004myxbox. if you want instructions email me. kellys4640@suddenlink.net

Wireless adapter


Hi,
What exactly are you refering to Here ( adapter ) The Power Brick, A wireless or wired Controller ?
There are 2 USB Ports on an XBOX 360 same place Front R/H/S Slot Side By Side.
Mike @ Compurepair.
If it,s Orange ( whatever it is youre refering To ) then it,s in standby Mode. Red ( error/Fault ) Green working OK.
Hope this helps.
