Ac adapter is red, what should i do?


This problem occurs when the power supply detects a problem. The power supply has several built-in safeguards to help prevent damage to either the console or to the power supply. The power supply will turn off if:
  • There is too much current.
  • The voltage is too high.
  • The temperature of the power supply is too high.
When any of these things happen, the light on the power turns red.
Solution 1: Make sure that the power supply is cool loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); The red light might indicate that the power supply is too hot or that it has overheated. Follow these steps if the power supply light is red:
  1. Turn the console off.
  2. Disconnect your Xbox 360 Power Supply from your Xbox 360 console and from the wall outlet.

  3. Let the power supply cool for two hours in a well-ventilated space. Do not connect the Xbox 360 power supply to the console or to the wall outlet during this time.
  4. After the power supply has cooled for two hours, reconnect the power supply to the console and to the wall outlet, and then turn the console on.
If the power supply light is still red, try the next solution.
Solution 2: Make sure that the power supply is plugged in loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); Make sure that the power supply is directly plugged into a working wall outlet. Problems might occur with the power supply if it is connected through an extension cord or surge protector.

If the power supply light is still red after you connect the power supply directly to a working all outlet, try the next solution.
Solution 3: Plug the power supply into a different wall outlet loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); To check the possibility that the wall outlet you are using is faulty or that there is a blown fuse, plug the power cord into a wall outlet that you know is working.

If this does not solve the problem, try the next solution.
Solution 4: Order a replacement Xbox 360 power supply loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); If you've tried all the solutions above and your power supply light is still red, you should contact Xbox Support to order a replacement power supply.

To help the power supply work correctly, follow these guidelines:
  • Do not block any ventilation openings in the power supply.
  • Do not put the power supply on a bed, a sofa, or on any other soft surface that might 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.
  • Do not use an unlicensed accessory, such as a third-party power supply or any accessory that plugs in between the Xbox 360 console and the power supply.
  • Plug the power supply directly into a working wall outlet. The power supply might not work correctly if it is connected to an extension cord or surge protector.
hope this helps.

Power supply light is red


This issue occurs when the external power supply has detected a fault. 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 will turn itself off if one of the following conditions is true:
  • There is too much current
  • The voltage is too high
  • The temperature of the power supply is too high
Under these conditions, the light on the power supply turns red.

Step 1: Make sure that the power supply is cool loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); The red light may indicate that the power supply is too hot or that it has already overheated. If the power supply light is red, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned off.
  2. Disconnect your Xbox 360 Power Supply from your Xbox 360 console and from the wall socket.

    For more information about how to disconnect the Xbox 360 power supply, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 906205 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906205/ ) How to connect and disconnect the Xbox 360 power supply
  3. Let the power supply cool for several hours in a well-ventilated space. Do not connect the Xbox 360 power supply to the console or to the wall socket during this time.
  4. After the power supply has cooled for several hours, reconnect the Xbox 360 Power Supply to the console and to the wall socket.
If the power supply light is still red, go to step 2. Step 2: Make sure that the power supply is plugged in correctly loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); If the power cord is plugged in to an extension cord, a surge protector, or a power strip, the current or voltage that flows through the power supply may not be correct. Make sure that the power supply is plugged directly into a working wall outlet.
Step 3: Plug the power supply into a different wall socket loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); Try a different wall socket. Ideally, plug the power supply into a wall outlet that is elsewhere in the house.

FLASHING RED LIGHT ON 360


Make sure that the power supply is cool loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); The red light may indicate that the power supply is too hot or it has already overheated. If that is the case, you should let the power supply cool for several hours in a well-ventilated space. Turn off the Xbox 360 console and don't turn it back on while the power supply is cooling. This will allow the power supply sufficient time to cool. As soon as the power supply has cooled off, the power supply light will change from red to orange, and you can turn the console back on.

If the power supply light is still red after you have let the power supply unit cool in a well-ventilated space, the power supply unit may require replacement. You can contact Xbox Customer Support at http://www.xbox.com/support/contact (http://www.xbox.com/support/contact) for information about how to replace the power supply.

Make sure that the power supply is plugged in correctlyFor further details go to this link

Is the it the power supply red light?

The red light may indicate that the power supply is too hot or is overheated. Therefore, you should let the power supply cool for several hours in a well-ventilated space. During this time, you should not try to turn the console back on to allow the power supply sufficient time to cool. As soon as the power supply has cooled off, the power supply light will change from red to orange, and you can turn the console back on.

If the power supply light is still red after you have let the power supply unit cool in a well-ventilated space, the power supply unit may require replacement.
Also make sure the power msupply is plugged in correctly.

You could also purchase a new power cord.
Good luck

Power Trouble


Pop it open and see if it needs to be cleaned out. Verify when it is powering up the fans are spooling sounds like it is over heating, or there's a problem with the power supply.
