Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

360 AC goes red when plugged into console

When I plug the AC adapter into the wall or a surge protector/extension cord/multiplug, it goes yellow. Then when i put it in the 360, it goes red and the 360 will not turn on at all. I tried switching wallsockets, using other things. I tried waiting to see if it'd cool off. It was working before I went up to missouri for my sisters wedding, taking it with me. It worked while I was there. Now I'm back and it wont work.

Ac adapter is red, what should i do?


This problem occurs when the power supply detects a problem. The power supply has several built-in safeguards to help prevent damage to either the console or to the power supply. The power supply will turn off if:
  • There is too much current.
  • The voltage is too high.
  • The temperature of the power supply is too high.
When any of these things happen, the light on the power turns red.
Solution 1: Make sure that the power supply is cool loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); The red light might indicate that the power supply is too hot or that it has overheated. Follow these steps if the power supply light is red:
  1. Turn the console off.
  2. Disconnect your Xbox 360 Power Supply from your Xbox 360 console and from the wall outlet.

  3. Let the power supply cool for two hours in a well-ventilated space. Do not connect the Xbox 360 power supply to the console or to the wall outlet during this time.
  4. After the power supply has cooled for two hours, reconnect the power supply to the console and to the wall outlet, and then turn the console on.
If the power supply light is still red, try the next solution.
Solution 2: Make sure that the power supply is plugged in loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); Make sure that the power supply is directly plugged into a working wall outlet. Problems might occur with the power supply if it is connected through an extension cord or surge protector.

If the power supply light is still red after you connect the power supply directly to a working all outlet, try the next solution.
Solution 3: Plug the power supply into a different wall outlet loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); To check the possibility that the wall outlet you are using is faulty or that there is a blown fuse, plug the power cord into a wall outlet that you know is working.

If this does not solve the problem, try the next solution.
Solution 4: Order a replacement Xbox 360 power supply loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); If you've tried all the solutions above and your power supply light is still red, you should contact Xbox Support to order a replacement power supply.

To help the power supply work correctly, follow these guidelines:
  • Do not block any ventilation openings in the power supply.
  • Do not put the power supply on a bed, a sofa, or on any other soft surface that might block ventilation openings.
  • Do not put the power supply in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.
  • Do not put the power supply on a stereo speaker, an amplifier, or a heat source such as a radiator or a heat register.
  • Do not use an unlicensed accessory, such as a third-party power supply or any accessory that plugs in between the Xbox 360 console and the power supply.
  • Plug the power supply directly into a working wall outlet. The power supply might not work correctly if it is connected to an extension cord or surge protector.
hope this helps.

Ac adaptor for my xbox360 console hs and orange blinking what should I do?


i think its safe to assume that its a power problem try disconnecting all the power plugs and try puting it into a wall (you could be overdoing an extension cord if you don't have one you should because that is the surge protector)

Check power brick. The power cord could be loose. If your ac adapter is red unplug it from the wall, the surge protector and re plug it back in. If problem persist call ms and ask for replacement

My Wii stopped working. Nothing lights up.


This is a common problem with the Wii. As I said, I'm very surprised Nintnedo didn't cover this in the owners manual FAQ, considering it happens almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc.

Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector, this happens. Power comes back on, but the Wii appears dead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators won't light. If there was a power surge, or the power went out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter,not the Wii itself.

There is no need to buy a new one or a AC adapter. Resetting it should work. There is a circuit inside the AC adapterthat needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

After not using my wii for about a month i went to play it the other day and it wouldn't turn on. The indicator light on the power button is off, not green, red, or orange. All the cords are connected, I...


Unplug it from the wall outlet (NOT from the Wii). Leave it unplugged for a good 5 to 10 minutes. The AC adapter needs to be reset (more on that below).

Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii.

Everything is plugged in, and it wont turn on


It seems even 5th or 6th problem is this. The AC adapter needs to be reset. Unplug it from the wall outlet for 5 to 10 minutes (NOT from the Wii, it HAS to be from the wall outlet).

Is your Wii just not turning on, no indicator lights? No red, yellow, or green, and pressing buttons doesn't work? Try re-setting the AC adapter.

My wii won't turn on


You likely had a power failure. You need to reset your AC adapter. Here's how:

  1. unplug the power cord from the wii. Unplug the adapter from your surge protector or the power outlet.
  2. wait 90 to 120 seconds. (Some people say to wait 30 seconds. Wrong! At least 90 secs is required for the AC adapter to rest.
  3. plug stuff back in and you're good to go.
NOTE: electronics like your wii, ps3, etc should be protected from power surges and power failures! Plug them into a good surge protector. Always!
