Xbox not coming on what to do


hi, what do you mean by ti wont come on

is it totally dead or do you have any red lights lit up on the power button

check the power brick and when you switch it on at the main it should have an orange light on it then watch the orange light as you press the on button it should turn green to tell you it working or flash red if it has a fault let me know ok.

try unplugging all the leads out of the back of the xbox and switch the power lead off at the mains. then plug all the leads back into the xbox, no the power lead can be a bit funny at times so push it in then try forcing it in a bit further sometimes the connections get weak and you need to push it in further so try this pushing it in as hard as you can.

then switch it on at the mains then try pressing the on button if the on button still wont do anything try pressing the eject button as this will also switch it on and open the disk tray

if its totally dead or you have any red lights lighting up tell me how many then i can assist you further ok

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution and leave a testimonial as i have pages of unrated posts as users forget to leave a response, thanks

My x-box won't turn on with everything plugged in


Hi check on the power brick that when you switch it on at the mains you get the orange light on the power brick, if you have this watch this light as you press the on button on the console if it turns red on the power brick then you have internal error on your xbox, if it stays orange then try taking out the power lead out of the back of the xbox 360 then push it back in sometimes if you dont get it pushed in far enough it wont work push it in as hard as you can then double check by pushing it back in then try pressing the on button.

if when you turn it on at mains you dont have any lights light up on the power brick then this could mean you either need to change the fuse in the plug or the power brick has over heated and needs replacing, if you do have an orange light on it then instead of pressing the on button on the xbox try pressing the dvd drive open button and see if that then switches it on.

let me know what light you get on the power brick and then ill do my best to assist you further.

most of the time its just because you dont push the power lead in the back of the xbox far enough, you can push it in thinking its in far enough when its not try pushing it in that little bit further and you should find it will come on.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Check the power supply unit, if the light is green or orange and still doesn't power on, try pressing the eject button on the xbox it should turn on if you do, if the power supply is red then you should contact xbox support.

Xbox wont turn on


Hi,
Your console should turn on when the eject button is pressed. Press the eject button on the front of your console.
If the console turns on when you press the eject button but not when you press the power button, the console faceplate might not be attached properly. To make sure that the faceplate is attached correctly, you should remove it and reattach it.
  • Position your console horizontally, as you would position a DVD player.
  • Unplug the power cord and any other cables connected to the back of your console.
  • While holding your console firmly, curl your fingers inside the oval USB door on the front of the console.
  • Push the faceplate away from the console with your thumb until the faceplate comes off.

Note You will need to use some force to remove the faceplate.
Once the faceplate is removed, look at the tabs on the back. If any of the tabs shown in red in the illustration below are broken, order a replacement faceplate by contacting Xbox Support.
If none of the tabs are broken, re-attach your faceplate by pressing it firmly until it clicks into place.Try to turn on your console again. If removing and reattaching the faceplate did not solve the problem contact the xbox support.
Thank you!

Xbox 360 won't turn on and the kids are upset.


Press the power button on the front of the Xbox to turn it on.

As you're doing this look at the power supply to see if the amber light turns green.

If the light does not turn green, you'll need to get a new power supply.

X-box 360 wont turn on


Is your power box light orange or green. It should be orange if turned off and go green when turned on if it is red your power supply box is no good you can unplug it leave off for 10 minutes or so then try again if light doesn't go orange you won't be able to turn it on. I had the same problem and it was power supply box with red light got new one works great.
