Just fixed the same on mine. I had just plugged a new extension cord in to a shared socket. Take the xbox and the power supply to another room (should be on another circuit than the original room). Plug it in and try and turn your xbox on. If you're lucky it will turn on and flash red. This is not the "red ring of death". It's just the error message that the A/V cord is not plugged in. Go back to the new room. Unplug everything from the wall that you don't need. Plug in just your TV and xbox. Plug in the AC adapter, cross your fingers, and fire it up. The A/C adapter may show orange for a little while but will eventually show green. If you're lucky, this will work. Play at least an hour of Guitar Hero just to make sure!

No power battery flashes 4 orange


If it is orange or is blinking orange, the battery charge is low or expended. Remove the battery and re-install it. Plug in the AC adapter and connect it to an outlet. Turn on the computer.

When the battery status light blinks green and orange, the battery temperature is too hot for charging. Shut down the laptop, detach the AC adapter, and allow the laptop and battery to return to room temperature before attempting to charge the battery.

If the battery status light blinks orange rapidly, the battery itself may be defective.

My xbox ac adapter keeps indicating an orange light when it is switched on without connecting it to the console. When I plug it into the console and then switch the xbox 360 console on, the console gives...


Disconnect everything and reconnect it,if that doesn't work, try to hook it up in a different room. If you are still having problems, you need to contact customer support and may have to order a new power supply cord.

My Ac Adapter i think is broken and my Xbox wont turn on but the AC adapter has a orange light that when i unplug it the orange light still does not go off.


Hi if the main brick has got an orange light then this is telling you the mains lead is working so try doing the following

1 unplug all leads from back of xbox and turn the power brick off at mains
2 plug the power lead back into the xbox, now when you push it in and it stops try pushing it in a little bit further usually they just dont push in far enough and it can be quite tight so make sure you are pushing it in hard enough,
3 now plug the video lead in and try switching it on,
keep an eye on the orange light whilst you switch it on if it comes on then it should continue to work if it dont come on watch the orange light and see it if changes color at the same time your switching it on, it will either flash green or red just once before going back to orange.

let me know what happens ok

My xbox will not power on even though the ac adapter light is on.


What colour is the powerlight on the adapter?

Green when the x360 is on
Orange when the x360 is off
Red when your power brick is broken

If you have not already done it I would try taking every cable out of the x360 and replugging it up from scratch (including the HDD if you have one).

Hope this helps.

Check wires and the color of the light on the ac adapter. IF the color is orange-turned off green- on any other color- problem. Do you play alote?

Samsung laptop AC adapter


Wow, they sure don't make that easy to find. I had to use Google. I like the full system specs: "Power adapter: Yes". That's not a specification, that's a checkbox. =)

For future reference: Your laptop is an _X_360. And it's going to get confused a lot with the Xbox 360. So if you do a Google search, say, for a power adapter, try something like this:
power adapter samsung x360 -xbox

The minus will ignore Xbox mentions.

Anyway, so I found a PDF here:
http://www.samsung.com/us/system/consumer/product/2008/10/24/np_x460_as02us/xseries_spec.pdf

For both submodels of the X360, it lists the same 90-watt power adapter: AA-PA1N90W/US

The bad news is Samsung does not seem to sell that online yet, and apparently you paid a lot of money for a very lightweight laptop, so getting a generic-but-heavy adapter, unless you're leaving it at the office or something, isn't necessary a good idea.

But if you type that into PriceGrabber, you get the part for $99.

If you type it into GOogle, you see it as cheap as $89 or so -- ... I don't know those companies. I used to do quite a bit of business with CDW 5 to 10 years ago; they sell it for $99:

AC Adapter has a blinking orange light...


Try moving everything to a different room on a different electrical circuit (as in electric panel outside your house). You might have too much load on that circuit for the plugs in that room. You could try unplugging everything except tv and xbox too.

Xbox 360 red lights power supply light stays yellow


you have to disconnect and reconnect the power cables to the 360. Orange/yellow light means that your power supply is on a standby mode and the 360 is not getting enough power/electricity inside

Hi,
What exactly are you refering to Here ( adapter ) The Power Brick, A wireless or wired Controller ?

Hope this helps.
