My x box wouldn't come on and it had 2 red flashing arcs or a half circle flashing on the on off
button. I didn't use it for a week. Tried it today stayed on for three songs then quit again. Now if
won't come back on I can't play my games of which I have several invested in this X BOX 360.

My mom is very upset because she bought this two year warranty and paid over$ 500.00 plus
all these games and she couldn't get through to the phone number on the outside of her two year
service warranty agreement!

Please help us get this fixed as soon as possible or send me a new one ! I don't want this XBOX
back if it's going to keep not playing!

Waiting for some urgently needed HELP,

JonMichael and Tammera Spake

I have an xbox 360 theres power to the lead but no power coming on the xbox itself,any ideas please?

Check for a broken USB port. There are 2 in front and 1 in the rear.
If there are any broken prongs touching it will not power on....assuming you are getting power beyond your power supply.

Is the light changin colors on your power supply brick once you press teh power button?

Blackout in my house, Xbox 360 ethernet port broken!

All the message means is it can't find the internet, so your internet must have went down.. your systems should still be working fine. I don't know much about using usb for ethernet, but that sounds like it would work no problem.

Do you know where to plug an x-plorer guitar into an x-box 360?

umm maybe you got a wrong guitar... the port is supposed to be USB shaped port which fits straight into one of the two slots on the front of the xbox.

Hope this helped?

Yellow flashing light on dimension 5051

An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Front usb port of xbox looks broken, unit does nothing now

Simple. Just solved it with advice from this site. If you see any of the gold prongs touching the side (or possibly each other) then find a thing tool and try to hook the gold prongs so they point direct upwards. how bad they get bent doesnt matter, just get them all standing up and not touching the sides. you probably cant use the port again but atleast it turns on.
