Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I unplugged my 360 to take to my friends house and it was left in my car for a day and1/2 without heat. When i plugged it back in, it wont turn on at all, no lights,red or green, no fan, but the power bricks orange standby light is on. What do i do?
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.

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:

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.

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

Your power brick might be faulty. Unplug everything, wait 10 minutes and then plug it all back in. You can also try connecting your X1's USB jack to a nearby PC or laptop to see if that helps. As a last solution, you could just get a USB power adapter like Turtle Beach sells for the X1:
This will let you plug in your X1's power directly to an electrical outlet.
