If the power brick is plugged into a surge protector then try to plug it directly into the wall outlet instead (note: xbox power brick has it's own surge protector)
Make sure that the brick is clean and the ventilation holes are not blocked.
Unplug ALL cables from Xbox 360 and plug back in securely. (note that though some cables might appear to be secure but they might not be seeded correctly. Verify.)
Check power source and make sure there is no fluctuating current preventing stable current to the Xbox 360 when attached? Try to plug the xbox into a set in another room and see if it corrects itself. If so then you know that possability of outlet issue is likely.
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.
Yikes...I would check to see if the power plug did not come off the xbox, then check the outlet to see if it's working, I would then remove the xbox kinnects bundle, then turn the xbox to see if its working.Then start allover. Good Luck!!
If your console software needs updating, you will see the following message:
Update Required: An update has been found, to apply this update you must restart your console.
Select Yes, Restart to install the update
Solution 2: Check the cables
Xbox 360 S console
Turn off the console.
Unplug the sensor from the console, and then plug the sensor cable into the AUX port on the back of the console. Important Remove the power/USB adapter cable if your Kinect sensor came with one.
Turn on the console.
Original Xbox 360 console
Turn off the console.
Make sure the power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet.
Make sure the USB connector is plugged into the back of the console.
The light located near the middle of the split cable should be green. No green light? Try plugging the cable into another outlet to make sure that the cable is working properly. If you still do not see a green light, your cable might need to be replaced. Contact Xbox Support.
Are you using hdmi cable. If so your hdtv needs to have it's hdmi port reset .First unplug everything even the TV and xbox. Then disconnect everything and unplug every thing from the wall outlets. Then plug the TV back in and hook everything back up. The HDTV even with the power off can have it's hdmi port bumped so you need to unplug it to reset the ports.
To troubleshoot this problem, try the following steps:
Examine the power indicator light that is located in the center of the Ring Of Light on your Xbox 360 console. If there is no power to your console, the indicator light is off and the fans are off. * Press the power button. The power button and the power indicator light are located in the center of the Ring of Light on the front of your Xbox 360 console. If your Xbox is functioning correctly, the power will turn on. * Press the eject button on your console disc drive. If your console turns on when you do this but does not start when you use the power button, there may be a problem with the power button or the console faceplate may not be attached correctly. Contact Xbox Customer Support for more help.
If the above step does not resolve the problem, examine the power cord where it connects to your console and to the power outlet. Disconnect and then reconnect the power cord at each end to make sure that you firmly connect the cord.
If this does not resolve the problem, see whether the power cord is plugged in to any device other than a typical power outlet. For example, the power cord may be attached to an extension cord. If this is the case, remove this device and then plug the power supply directly into a power outlet.
If the problem is not a connection problem, examine the light on the Xbox 360 Power Supply. * A green light indicates that the power supply is functioning correctly. If the light is not green, contact Xbox Customer Support for more help.If these steps do not resolve the problem, your console needs service.
When the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow this means there is no problem with your console but the power supply can't supply it with power.
To remedy this problem, first try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. You'll also want to uplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord.
Wait for about five minutes and then reconnect everything. You might also want to try plugging it into another wall outlet without an extension cord.
If you are still getting an orange or yellow indicator light, then something is at fault with the Xbox 360 power supply. If this is the case, contact the Xbox 360 customer support to get a new one. Hope this helps you out! Don't forget to rate me :)
