My xbox power box is displaying the amber light and the xbox wont switch on is this related??


An orange light is illuminated on the power supply for one of two reasons. Either the console is turned off or the power supply is disconnected from the console. The orange light means that the power supply is in standby.
Even if the console is turned off, the power supply light may still be illuminated orange. This can occur if the power supply cord is not fully inserted into the power socket of the console.

It wont turn on but the box light is orange


The orange light on the brick indicates that the power supply is in standby mode. This can happen when the power supply cord is not fully inserted into the 360s socket. Disconnect and then reconnect the power cord at each end to make sure that you firmly connect the cord. If your using an extension cord of some kind, disconnect and instead plug it directly into the wall socket. Hope this helps!

Try using another Power outlet or try turning it on by pushing the eject button. Your power button may be defective. I'm sorry, but if that doesn't work I'm afraid your gonna have to call 1-800-4-MY-XBOX There may be something wrong with your console.

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.

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

Hi,

Orange means = stand by
Green= its ON
Red= theres a problem (usually power supply overheating)

There could be many reasons as to why your console wont switch on such as broken power switch, faulty / damaged power cord / supply unit, or over heating has damaged the console.

If possible try using teh power cord in another xbox 360 console to eliminate the cable being the problem.

If the problem still exsists all that you can really do from there is send it to the xbox repair center.

You should be able to get it fixed free of charge.

if you have a game or dvd in there you cant get out unplug teh console and remove the face plate. depending on the dvd drive manufacture in your xbox you may / maynot be able to see some small black cogs at teh front of the dvd drive inside the actuall dvd drive unit. spin these with a small techinical screwdriver and the the tray will start to slide out with each spin.

Not very technical or approved but does the job.

hope this helps
