Well, check to make sure the outlet Isn't faulty. Also, when it shuts off, do 1, 2, 3 , or 4 red lights appear around the power button? It they do: I'm not sure what the 1 light signifies, but I do now that 2, or 3 red lights mean overheating. Either buy an intercooler (under $30, USD) , or replace the system. 4 lights is the famous Red Ring of Death. Aka,
when you see four red lights, you're 360 is dead. Contact Microsoft, if it's still under warranty, (they have a 3 yr warranty on this) they'll fix it for free. If not, be prepared to shell out $140 USD.

Why won't anything work?


Some game systems have power fail protection. My WII needs to have both ends of the power cord unplugged for like 2 min to reset the power supply. Maybe this is your problem>

I played my xbox for an hour or two last night.... i shut it off and unplugged it and my gf played ps2 for about an hour... then we went to sleep well today when i plugged it in nd tried to turn it back on...


You have have not mentioned what is not working the Xbox or the Ps2. Any way if the amber light does not turn on when you plug the Xbox into the wall socket you have lost the power adapter and do not attempt to repair it yourself . It is available on the net for 20$. In case of the Ps2 also its the same story. Replace the adapter.

Power went out i tryed to turn the xbox360 back on it didnt work


Take the Hard drive off, unplug the power wire from the wall, and plug it in to a different outlet, make sure the RCA (red,white,yellow)cables are still connected from Xbox to TV(or this will give red lights when turned on) and with that done, turn the unit on. Are the lights gone?

Xbox 360 won't turn on


I had this problem. Make sure the pins in the USB ports (2 on the front and 1 on the back of the console) aren't bent and there's nothing obstructing them. I unbent some of the metal inside these ports, and voila! I have a working xbox.

Xbox 360 lost all power


probably over heating of power supply.

take a air gun and blow out the little vent holes at each end, also listen to hear if the fan comes on, inside the power supply.

I think the X-box does not Sync


Try this method :
Check if your XBOX 360's Power Supply has an orange or green light. If it is RED, then unplug the power supply from the socket.
If it is orange or green, then try and unplug the Power Supply from the Back of your XBOX, wait 1 minute. Then plug it back in.
If that doesn't work then call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and speak to a XBOX Representative.
