3) Decline inserting HDD or memory unit when prompted.

My xbox was just working then i plugged in my turtle beach heatset and now it wont even turn on! :'(

Though I'm not familiar with this model of headset, it's likely that it could be drawing too much power from your 360 and it can't handle it. Do you have a fan connected to the back of your 360? Also, is it only a lack of power or are there other things going on, such as red lights? If there are red lights, this is a far more serious problem than a lack of power.

Red Blinking Light

This is a general warning code. Try switching off the power in the back of the system, waiting a minute, then switching it back on. Try turning the system back on and see if it happens again.

Reds light's

you can't just remove the 2 x clamps, you need something to hold the heatsink down. Get yourself some m5 screws and washers and screw it down to hold the headsink, cpu and the board together.

4 red lights

  1. Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the Xbox 360 console.
  2. Disconnect the AV cable from the Xbox 360 console, and then reconnect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.
  3. If the four flashing red lights continue to flash, try wiping the metal area of the AV pack with a dry cloth. The metal area is the end that plugs into the console. Wipe the metal area thoroughly, and then try the AV Pack again.
  4. If the AV cable is correctly connected but the four red lights are still flashing, substitute a different AV cable if you have one available.
