Depends. If you have a console from 2005 or early 2006, only the brick with the metal end (the end that plugs into the xbox) will work. Of yours was made after that, and brick will work

Why does my xbox 360 shut off by itself within 10 minutes of playing call of duty 2? I also noticed the power supply thing has a red dot on it and it is very hot?


My first thought would be that the power supply brick is bad. Bring xbox to game stop. They may let you test it out on one of their power supplies.

Red light on xbox 360 adaptor


Under the power brick there is a description for what the lights mean.
Red means there is a fault with the power brick.

Here is a great guide on what to do:

To run you through:
If the power brick is too hot, let i coll down then try again.

If the plug is connected into an extension cord, surge protector etc.. it might be reducing the voltage so plug it into its own socket.

If those dont work you might need to get a replacement adaptor failing that it could be a problem with the console itself but unlikely.

The power brick on my xbox 360 is red and is not overheating yet i smaell burning plastic from my xbox 360 console anyone have any tips?


A red light on the xbox 360 power brick usually indicates the Xbox 360 console has a short circuit. Here is how to be sure:

1. Try unplugging the power brick from the wall and from the xbox 360.
2. Wait about 30 seconds and plug the power brick into the wall power outlet.
3. Make sure the indicator light on the power brick is orange. ( If it's not orange then get yourself a new power brick and try again ).
4. Plug the power brick into the Xbox 360 console and try to power it on.
If your power brick turns red or you get an immediate three red ring error than you will need to have the console professionally repaired.
If your warranty with Microsoft has expired; the company I work for GATpro Repairs offers this service at a low flat rate and we pay for the return shipping.
Good Luck and I hope this has helped!

Red light on power box for 360


i have to personally dissagree with 'wildbear' :-)
well not actually dissagree but i think the problem will be at lot less technical than all the writing he has done.
a simpler check.......does the 360 'switch on' ??
i assume with a red light on the power brick it dosnt ??
the problem is more likely a faulty pin (terminal) inside one of the USB slots you have been using for either a controller charger or wired controller (or a usb memory stick to play music thru ur xbox??)......plugging chargers/wired controllers in & out of either the 2 front slots (behind the flap) or the 1 at the back can sumtimes bend one of the terminals causing it to touch the outer casing of the usb slot ?? if it does this it shorts the board of the 360 which in turn stops u powering up the 360 all together :-(
one of the signs of this is a 'RED' light on the power brick & the 360 not powering up at all !! but sumtimes the power brick light will stay orange or even green.....even with this fault ! it dosnt always turn red !
One way to rectify it is (un-plug the powere brick from the mains first) & unplug ALL USB CONNECTIONS TO THE 360 !! (controller chargers ect) & try powering up the 360 !! (after plugging it back in)
if this fails ur gonna need a torch & a little screw driver (or tweezers) un-plug everything from the 360 & look inside ALL usb slots you have used ! check to see if any of the prongs have bent accidently whilst plugging in & out chargers ect ..... if they have straighten them so they are not touching any of the sides of the usb slot....
after doing this ...plug back in and 'hopefully' Whoooop Whooooop :-)

hope this helps ??
failing this it maybe as wildbear suggests & its a problem with the power brick altho i very much doubt it ?? they normally way out live an xbox !
remember thumbs up if this helps :-)

My Xbox 360 won't turn on. When I plug the power cable into the wall, the orange light on the power brick lights up as normal, but if you plug the other end into the Xbox, the orange light starts blinking....


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

Alright, lets fix this!
 Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow.
Usually when the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange it's on standby so there is no problem with your Xbox 360 console but the power supply can't supply it with power !

First you have to try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for a minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cords at all.
If it's still doing the same it will be definitely a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply.
So, in this case please contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill the Xbox 360 power supply.

Xbox 360 power supply light is red.
There is something wrong with the Xbox 360 power supply connection so try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cord at all.

If it's still red that would be for sure a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply .
So, then contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill your Xbox 360 power supply .



You can also find replacement power cords many places online. See if you can get your hands on another cord and try that to see if its the current power cord.
Hope this helps you out! Please don't forget to rate :)

My xbox 360 power supply/brick goes from orange to red as soon as I plug it in the back of the console.


When the power box says RED, that means that the problem is your power supply, try another power box if you have a friend or relative nearby, and if it works on another brick that means you have to contact xbox support and check the warranty of your brick, but if its already out of warranty. You need to purchase a new power supply that costs $79.99 ( Only available through Xbox customer support ) - Shipping and Delivery will be covered by microsoft

Power brick red light


yeah you definitly need to have a uk to usa power converter. you guys run on 220V which would create way more current then needed which is why the power supply blew. I hope you didnt fry any internal parts in the 360. You need to get a power converter that gives you 120V.
