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.

SOURCE: Flashing Power Pack

Amber light is ok its when its red that is the problem, this might be your 360 that is faulty and until we have a closer look we would not be able to help further. You could try a different power supply from a mate, if the console works with a different power supply then you know its your supply thats faulty. but if the 360 still will not turn on then its the 360 at fault. Be carefull when using different power supplies as there are currently i think 4 different revisions and all have different power ratings. We could look at this for you www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

Xbox 360 won't turn on and the kids are upset.


Press the power button on the front of the Xbox to turn it on.

As you're doing this look at the power supply to see if the amber light turns green.

If the light does not turn green, you'll need to get a new power supply.

My sons Xbox had the 3 red lights! It depends what colour of light is showing on your power pack the colour indicates what the problem is! The light will either be red,amber or green, my sons light was amber and that was due to a faulty power pack, Microsoft were very obliging and replaced the power pack free of charge,it arrived in 3 working days! Here is a link that will take you through the different lights and how to fix the problem!

I get a red light on my powerpack


i think that means that the connection between the power brick and the xbox isnt working, either your xbox needs repair or you need a new power brick, ask a friend with a 360 if you can borrow theirs and also their wires for the powerbrick and if it works then YOU need a new powerbrick and if it doesnt then your xbox is broken

Thomson DTI6300-16, The amber light constantly flashes, no red or amber lights appear! any help/advise would be welcome


Does your Thomson DTi6300 fail to power on normally and displays a solid amber light? During the past few days we have been made aware of an issue affecting a number of our customers with a Thomson DTi6300 box. Customers have been experiencing problems with their box failing to come out of standby mode and typically showing a constant amber light on the front panel.
 
This fault is due to a broadcast issue which  has led to a corrupt file being loaded onto the hard disk.
 
Only Thomson DTi6300 boxes have been affected. If you have been experiencing problems of this nature first of all try switching your box off at the wall and leave for twenty seconds. If this does not work, please try the following procedure.
  
Please note this will unfortunately cause recordings in your programme library to be lost which we?re very sorry about. You may have to try this procedure a few times in order to resolve the issue as it requires complete attention and precise timing.
 
1.       Disconnect the power supply from the unit by removing the power cable from the back of the box.
2.       Wait 20 seconds and then put the power cable back in while pressing the 'standby/power on' buttonrepeatedly on the front panel of the box.
3.       Release the standby button as soon as you see a light flash on the front of your box and thenimmediately press the arrow buttons on the front panel quickly and in the following sequence:  Up, Down, Left, Right (please note this is not the order the arrow buttons appear on the box).
4.       Your box should then show the amber light with the green light flashing until the disk re-format has been completed which will take around 60 seconds. The box should return to a solid red light (standby) automatically. If after 2 minutes your box still does not display a solid red light, please repeat steps 1-4.
5.       When you return to the TV GUIDE screen, you will now need to scan for channels to restore your Top Up TV channel logos. To do this, please select Option 4 (set-up) from the Main Menu, followed by option 1 (scan for channels).
6.       IMPORTANT: Once you have completed your channel scan, you will need to select option 5 from the Main Menu (Choose your channels) to re-select all those channel providers you would like Top Up TV to download shows from.
 
We?re really sorry if you have been affected by this issue and greatly regret any inconvenience this may have caused.

I have a Yellow Led light on power bar, xbox will not turn on


Here ya go! This should help you out, I have also had this happen to me. Don't worry, its nothing like the red circle of death.

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.

Hope this helps you out! Don't forget to rate me :)
