Problem with Power supply

I am in the process of trying to fix the RROD, however whenever i turn on my xbox the power supply blinks green then red and back to orange and the 3 red rings simply blink but now power goes to the fan or the cpu or gpu. Is my power supply shot?

No, The best thing to do is unplug the power supply completely. Every cord from every cord. Then plug everything in back together. The power supply does this to protect the Xbox from surging internally. If this occurs, the whole system would be fried.

Three red lights around the "on" button and a green light on the power supply


3 red lights on the Xbox 360 is the most common error and it means "General Hardware failure. To fix this you need to stop the amount of heat that the GPU and the CPU is taking.

To do this you can use the recommended guide that has been on the market for 3 years or you can send it in.

Turned xbox 360 on then it goes off right away


You are getting the rrod because of a 'fault' with the motherboard. the color of the power supply shows if something is 'active' (green) on it or on 'stand by' (yellow). What 'fixing' were you doing?

2 Red lights for player1 and player2


Check the light on the power supply and if its orange that means that the console is on stand by mode, The light on the Power brick should be green when the console turns on. if the light turns red that means that the power supply needs to be replaced. call xbox support and check the warranty status of your 360

Make sure you have all the clamps on the chips tight. If one pops loose it will cause this.

3 ROD but power supply constant orange,no green


When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lightsproblem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler thanit is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler beforeacutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you willhave to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox'swarranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have towait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix yourXbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.
