A common problem caused by corroded traces on the motherboard.

Easy to fix with a few jumper wires.

This happens often "without pounding the buttons". All four of my Xbox originals did this. You need to replace the power button assembly. It's rather easy to replace. Click this link to the part.

Re: original xbox power problem

You been pounding on the buttons? if you havent taken apart the console and messed with the front panel. then imma assume something has been striking the buttons hard and theyve dampened in so hard that they dont work anymore "the contacts dont make good electrical contact" the best thing is to go to llama.com and order a new front pcb assembly for it.
