SOURCE: can you use a xbox 360 european power brick (220v) on a USA xbox 360 in europe

You must see the data on the brick label. If it says the correct tension (tension = voltage), yes, you can. But be careful because the Xbox's have three tipes of tension. It depends on the motherboard. If the mother is a Falcon, the tension is 14.2 V, but if it is a new Jasper, the tension is 12.1 V.

SOURCE: XBOX 360 power brick flashing orange and green

according to the microsoft website:

The power supply has several built-in safeguards to help prevent damage to either the console or to the power supply itself. The power supply can turn itself off when there is too much current, too much voltage, or too high a temperature. Under these conditions, the light on the power supply will turn from green to orange or to red. Or, the light will turn off. When the power supply light is green, the power supply is working correctly.

To help the power supply work correctly, always try to use the following best practices:

  • Make sure that all ventilation openings in the power supply are free to ventilate.
  • Do not put the power supply on a bed, on a sofa, or on any other soft surface that may block ventilation openings.
  • Do not put the power supply in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.
  • Do not put the power supply on a stereo speaker, an amplifier, or a heat source such as a radiator or a heat register.
  • Plug the power supply directly into a wall outlet. In other words, do not use extension cords or power strips.
Basically, feel if it is overheated. if it is let it cool down. If not try a different wall socket. If that doesn't work you probably have a problem with your power brick or console. Try borrowing someone else's power cords.

SOURCE: Xbox 360 has orange light on the power brick,no

Mine has an orange light and works fine. i think that's standby mode. it turns green as soon as the 360 powers up. try replacing the power cord that goes from the 360 back to the power block. It may be faulty.

SOURCE: My Xbox 360 won't turn on. When I plug the power

Sounds like a bad power supply, or on two occasions I have found that one of the USB ports had a bent pin which was shorted to the metal housing, which wouldn't let the unit power on. So check all of the USB ports

Xbox 360 is turning on for less than a second

Got kind of bad news , It is the power supply ,but it's the power supply
in side the box itself. It's more than likely a shorted regulator specifically
one of the 12 volt liner reg chips , I had to swap a few out to resolve
this a few times.

"Key" issue - how to find

So you got the RROD on Christmas day, man that was a good present. The two lights (1 and 3?) usually means the system overheated and it cuts power to the CPU and GPU. If you did the bolts/washer fix, you actually do not want this to occur. You want it to stay on for 30-35 mins or so without doing the two lights (1 and 3). Usually you can do this by cooling the CPU fan and not the GPU. There is a good tutorial for the clamp fix here ( It worked for my XBOX 360.

Unfortunately, It sounds like you turned on the XBOX 360 with the DVD drive disconnected. If so, I hate to add to your headaches but your XBOX 360 is probably banned from XBOX live.

If not, there is a good tutorial for replacing your XBOX 360 drive at: It also talks about rekeying the drive.

If all else fails, you might trying talking to 360 Pros ( I know some people who have used their repair server and if you've opened the XBOX 360, you can not use Microsoft.

Xbox 360 wont work on my Tv now - always been fine before


Make sure the switch on the 360 A/V cable is in the right position. Also unplug everything from the unit and plug it all back in again.
From the reading I've done on tech issues the 360 has a lot of temporary issues like that.
