    try the power supply on someone elses 360, if that comes on ok the problem is with your 360. if it wont work on someone elses 360 then you will need to replace the power supply. you can get second hand ones from ebay, but i would do the test before you spend any money.



    also the power supplies are not worth repairing, they can be lethal when repaired, one company repaired some power supplies for me and when i got them back one of them blew up so i never use that company again

The orange light on my xbox360 power box is blinking orange and it won't turn on what do i do


I need you to tell me exactly where the light is flashing if it is on the gray box that ataches by cable with a light on it or if it's the on switch on the xbox 360 itself.
If it's on the 360 and it's flashing orange then that means a able is badly connected or missing.
If it is on the gray box next to it then i do NOT KNOW.

Power box light is blinking orange and sometime a steady red and console want come on.


Green Indicator Light:

The default indicator light is green. When the Xbox 360 power supply light is green it means that there are no problems with your power supply. However, if you are having problems and the power supply light is green, this means that the console is faulty and you need to contact Xbox 360 support.

Orange or Yellow Indicator Light

When the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow this means there is no problem with your console but the power supply can't supply it with power.

To remedy this problem, first try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. You'll also want to uplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord.

Wait for about five minutes and then reconnect everything. You might also want to try plugging it into another wall outlet without an extension cord.

If you are still getting an orange or yellow indicator light, then something is at fault with the Xbox 360 power supply. If this is the case, contact the Xbox 360 customer support to get a new one.

Red Indicator Light:

If the xbox 360 power supply light is red, then there is something wrong with the power supply connection. If this is the case, try the same solution as listed above of unplugging the power supply from the console, unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet and unplugging the power supply from the power cord. Wait for about five minutes and then reconnect everything. You might also want to try plugging it into another wall outlet without an extension cord.

If the indicator lights are still red, then there is a fault with the power supply. If this is the case, contact customer support about getting a new one.

No Indicator Light:

If the XBox 360 power supply light is not illuminating at all, this usually means that the Xbox power supply is not connected to the wall outlet correctly. On the other hand, it might also be a fault with the power supply or the power cord.

Either way, try the same solution as listed above for the red indicator lights. If you still don't see any lights illuminated after unplugging and then reconnecting everything, you'll need to contact customer support about getting a new power supply.

Green and Orange Indicator Light:

If the indicator light is flashing green and orange, this may mean that the console does not detect the AV Pack.

Disconnect and then reconnect the Xbox AV Pack. Make sure the connections are firmly connected. Turn your Xbox back on.

If the indicator light is still flashing green and orange, try another AV pack if one is available.

If the indicator light is still flashing green and orange, you'll need to contact Miscrosoft Customer support.

Flashing Orange Indicator Light:

If your Xbox console's indicator light flashes orange, this means the internal components have overheated and the Xbox has automatically shut down to prevent damage.

Turn off the console and let it cool for at least 10 minutes.

To prevent the Xbox from overheating in the future, make sure that it's not placed in a closed cabinet or on carpet. It's best to get the Xbox elevated off the ground where the PSU can have maximum heat release.

You'll also want to make sure the Xbox is not located near a heat source like the back side of a television, computer, monitor, or other electrical device.

My xbox 360 elite power supply is blinking orange and wont turn on when not plugged in it is a constant orange.


Either your power supply is bad or the console has a short. You can check this by trying another power supply. If it works, then the problem is with your power supply. If not, then the console needs to be professionally fixed.

Please visit our eBay store at http://stores.ebay.com/Garons-Biz or from garonsbiz.com for all of your Xbox 360 and PS3 repair item needs.

Ac adaptor blinking orange. Xbox360 won't power up.


An orange light is illuminated on the power supply for one of the following reasons:
  • The console is turned off.
  • The power supply is disconnected from the console.
  • The power supply cord is not fully inserted into the power socket of the console.
  • The power supply is faulty.
  • The console is faulty. (The console might be faulty if it does not turn on when the power supply light is orange.)
Step 1: Try to connect and then disconnect the power supply

loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); Follow these steps to connect and then disconnect the power supply:
  1. Turn off the Xbox 360 console.
  2. Disconnect the cord that connects the power supply to the console.
  3. Reconnect all the cords, and then try to turn on the console.
if after this also your console does not power up then you need to check if you are seeing any flashing red lights on the power button of Xbox 360, if you see the red flashing lights then you would have to get your power adaptor replaced by calling up MS Customer Support.

If you do not see flashing red lights on the console power button in that case the console itself would have to be send for repairs

Please do rate my solution, Wish you Happy Holidays and Happy Gaming
