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?

Xbox 360 wont charge play and charge kit


First thing to do is check your USB ports on the console. Plug in a flash drive or anything into all 3 USB ports to test them. If they all work you have eliminated the console as the source of the problem.
Alternatively, if you believe it may be the play and charge kit itself, simply plug it into any usb on any pc with a controller attached. If the red charging light turns on, it is working properly.
If both check out it simply means it's time to replace the battery pack in the controller. They have a life cycle depending on usage, and they vary greatly.

I cant get a connection with the xbox and the standard controller


The usb ports are soldered onto the mainboard and would require quite a bit of technical knowlege to replace. You are stuck with wireless controllers and batteries. There are charging stations for xbox 360 controllers on ebay. Most 360's have a USB port on the back above the network port. You could charge with that one. Good Luck

Help Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver For Windows, help help


Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart, If the reciever is not lighting up then it is dead, you can try to take it to walmart and exchange it for a working one, they are usualy good at swapping out and if they give you a hard time buy a new one and return it with the old reciever instead of the new one. I hope this helps you.

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.

My xbox won't turn on


hey guys i was freakin out because i had that same problem.  i didnt want to pay an extra 1000$ just because the stupid repair guys wouldnt tell me the answer.  So look inside your broken usb port, there should be like golden prongs in there.  if they are bent, straighten them and you can turn your xbox back on.  Now this might not be the case with you, but that is how i just solved my problem.  if you have any questions ill try to keep posted and see if i can help further. also you can get me at my gamertag for xbox live.  its volcomxskater37

The green won't go on


There is a small white button on the front of the console, and one on the front of the controller, push both so the controller and console will recognize each other. Also if you have a play and charge kit you can try plugging the controller directly into the xbox usb port. That should work.

Xbox 360 controller stopped working


I have the issue mostly when the batteries are about to die, Try changing the batteries, or if you are using a play and charge kit (sold seprately) connect it to your xbox 360 and one of the front usb ports. Or replace the rechargeable battery.
