The flashing yellow light on the Power adaptor points to a potential failure with the power adaptor. Usually when the adaptor is idle their is a solid yellow light, A red light for a total failure and a green light for on.

A YEllow flashing light would indicate that there could be potential problems with the adaptor overheating and/or being faulty. where is the adaptor located ? just like the console itself. they are prone to overheating and collect dust very easily.

i would suggest moving the adaptor into an area with a large opening to allow the flow of air to keep it cool, also i would attempt to remove any dust inside.

Try doing this and if the problem persists, let me know

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.

Wont stop flashing green and I can not connect to xbox live yet I used to be able to Any Help Thanks, Paul


IF The LIGHT IS FLASHING GREEN then there is something wrong with your wireless network
Check your network settings and Retry connecting



Check the adapter's status light loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); The adapter's status light can tell you a lot about the state that the adapter is in. Here's what the different lights mean:
  • Steady green light: The adapter is connected to a wireless router, gateway, or access point. The adapter is ready to use.

  • Steady red light: The adapter is not recognized. Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of the Xbox 360 console.
  • Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless network.
  • Flashing red light: There is a problem. The adapter might be experiencing a hardware failure. Contact Xbox support at http://www.xbox.com/support/contact (http://www.xbox.com/support/contact) .
  • No light: The adapter is not receiving power. Unplug the USB connector and plug it in again. Still no light? Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of the console

My xbox got the red rings of death and i had to replace my power supply, i just starteed up my xbox again and the light on the wireless adapter wont even turn red, well if i wiggle the cord it flashes red...


There are links that show you how to repair this issue yourself (but they are not very clear and every thing is very fragile inside the XBOX 360) or you can contact me via email at mycharminglife@gmail.com and we can discuss the issue further as I recently repaired my XBOX 360 with the same issues and it works better than when was brand new.

Xbox 360 red lights power supply light stays yellow


you have to disconnect and reconnect the power cables to the 360. Orange/yellow light means that your power supply is on a standby mode and the 360 is not getting enough power/electricity inside
