If you have a snapped AV cable/HDMI cable then try getting anonther one from your local gaming store. If you have had the E74 error then contact MS support for assistance. Its not covered under the free 3 year warranty but if your xbox is less than a year old it can be repaired for free or replaced. Your hard drive will stay with you though. The bottom right quadrant should illuminate red, I have this problem with one of my xbox 360s & it is worse than RROD. If it isn't the AV cable its the GPU or CPU broken

I HAVE AN OCTOBER 2008 XBOX AND A 150W 12.1 AMP POWERBRICK FROM A NEWISH XBOX . PLUG ON POWERBRICK WILL NOT FIT SOCKET ON XBOX


The power cords for the Xbox 360 and the Xbox 360 slim have different shaped plugs. If the plug you are using is not fitting it is likely that you have purchased the incorrect cord. If this is the case you will need to purchase a new cord.
When you purchase your new power cord make sure that it is designed for the original Xbox 360 NOT the Xbox 360 slim.

How to fix the "open tray" error on Xbox 360


When ever you have a problem with your Xbox 360 always do these steps first:
1. Turn off your Xbox 360
2. Unplug all of your cords
3. Plug your cords back in
4. Turn your Xbox 360 back on

1. Now with your Xbox 360 on open your tray.
2. Hold your tray open while you turn Xbox 360 off making sure it doesn't close.
3. Still making sure your tray doesn't close turn it back on.

If this does not work you will have to send it into microsoft to fix. If your warranty is up you will have to pay $150 to fix it. Otherwise it's free

How to setup xbox live


Hello there

No problem, in just a few steps you too will be online and ready to go.

Ethernet Cable

With your Xbox 360 turned off unplug the ethernet cable from the back of your Xbox.

Xbox 360 Power Cord

Next unplug the Xbox 360 power cord from the back of the Xbox 360.

Unplug ethernet cable and power cord from the modem. Wait for about 1 minute and then plug ethernet cable back into the modem.

Now you need to plug other end of the ethernet cable into the back of the Xbox 360.

Plug the modem power cord back into your modem , wait for lights to light up on your modem (this can take up to a minute).

The last step is to plug the Xbox power cord into the back of the Xbox, turn it on and you are ready to go.

Turn xbox 360 on and no picture on tv, xbox lights up green but doesnt send video output. tv is hd and i have tryed hooking the xbox up to another tv, tryed using hd and regular video outputs, tryed new...


You may need to change your HD settings on the back of the console ( HD setting is actually on cord ) I had that issue when I first went online w/360 . If that does not help u know X box costumer support will repair any damaged system prob. no cost and does'nt take as long as they say.

Xbox 360 wireless ownt work


xbox 360 wireless adapters are usally the worst to get.
i suggest buying a long enough ethernet cord and using that, a 50m ethernet cord is around about $25. so pretty cheap.

Can i use a computer monitor power cord to replace the xbox 360 AC power cord


Only if you shave the power cord to fit in the same shape as the xbox plug-in. If you succeed then it will work. Keep calling local Gamestops or EB's stores for a used power cord for about 29.99-39.99 in used price.

Orange or Yellow Indicator Light

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
