My Xbox has been working fine for a while. Ive sent it into MS for a Red Ring Issue and that was fixed. But now, theres a problem with the power! When i unplug my Power block from my Xbox 360, the LED on the block reads Orange (Standby). But when i plug the block into the xbox, it reads Red (Fault Error). I dont know if its the xbox or the power block but i just want it fixed.... HELP!!!!!

It is the power brick. If you are under warranty you can have microsoft send you a new one for free, otherwise a new powerbrick is around 80 dollars.

The power bar on my xbox 360 has a red light on it and won't turn on i was playing yesterday just fine and i have three different power cables i have tried and still nothing they all give me the same red...


I CAN FIX IT! There are links that show you how to repair this issue yourself (but they are not very clear and every thing is very fragile inside the XBOX 360) or you can contact me via reply on here and we can discuss the issue further as I recently repaired my XBOX 360 with the same issues and it works better than when was brand new.

Or you can google xbox 360 RRod issues it is a MS defect

No Sound on Xbox 360


Very often on HDTVs there may be more than one YPbPr connection... That is the Red Green and Blue. Under each one, or next to, or above, there should be separate red and white audio hookups for each set of YPbPr hookups.

Make sure they are hooked into the corresponding plugs.

Hope that helps.

The chip your refering to is the scaler chip but also the issue could be in your GPU which you will have to have MS replace. There are a few places you can look but im not sure if the books for fixing xbox 360s covers this issue. MS did extend there warranty to 3 years on all there xboxs due to the mass amounts of over heating issues have you contacted them yet? Let me know
