Xbox 360 will not come on!

My 360 will not come on at all! My son went to turn it on one morning and the green ring appered and then quickly disappered and the xbox never came back on. I have disconnected power cord and let it set and still no response at all.I Called 4myxbox and of course they want me to send it in for a nice fee of $100.00 but 1 dont have the funds right now, 2 dont want to wait 2 to 3 weeks to get it back and 3 my World at War is still in the console which is my biggest concern. Please help for mine and my 2 boys sake!

    my xbox 360 simply doesn't turn on. i checked the power supply, and it seems to be working, which leads me to suspect that there's a broken wire or some such inside the console. my other problem is that since i live on a miltary base, microsoft won't pickup my xbox.

OK!
1) First, do you have the courage to take off the faceplate off of your xbox 360? Just pull it off then check the RF module( The thing that also contains the switch button and all those LED's around it) See if there are any obvious broken connections to anything, then simply return them back to their original places. i have had this happen to me and it was just that the RF module had loosened a little bit. Try this then tell me.

The problem is most likely dust on the inside of the console or it might be that your power adapter box is broken.first go to google and find out how to open up the 360 properly,once u know that then open it up ,get a hoover and hoover all the dust from inside (while being very careful of all the components)and wipe everything down with a dry cloth.Especially where the two cooling fans are.Please note that if u do open it to do this that it breaks any warranty u have on your xbox but wot the hell its fixed.Hopefully this will help you.Joe Stevenson.

Xbox 360 wont turn on


If your ring up microsoft and explain your problem without shouting at them, and your xbox has not been opened at all which leads to a warranty void they will fix it for your for free.

My xbox 360 has a red ring but a green icon


You may know, but, the red ring represents that there is a hardware problem, and i am betting that your video card in your 360 probably went bad if it will turn on perfect but no picture shows.

your a/v cords may be fried along with the ports... and did you ever turn the xbox OFF before you went to bed? if not, you could have:
1. fried the leds
or
2. overheated the motherboard.

try getting a new a/v cord and check the ports on your tv. are you hooked up to HDMI? if so, you might have put them in the wrong slots somehow or the ports might have been shot.

Xbox 360 problem


If you can still HEAR sound, but can't see. Check your Audio Video Cable.

It's the colorful one (red, white, yellow) (red, blue green, white, red)

Make sure the connections are secure into the back of the TV as well as the connection to the back of the Xbox 360.
