SOURCE: XBOX 360 power brick flashing orange and green

according to the microsoft website:

The power supply has several built-in safeguards to help prevent damage to either the console or to the power supply itself. The power supply can turn itself off when there is too much current, too much voltage, or too high a temperature. Under these conditions, the light on the power supply will turn from green to orange or to red. Or, the light will turn off. When the power supply light is green, the power supply is working correctly.

To help the power supply work correctly, always try to use the following best practices:

  • Make sure that all ventilation openings in the power supply are free to ventilate.
  • Do not put the power supply on a bed, on a sofa, or on any other soft surface that may 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.
  • Plug the power supply directly into a wall outlet. In other words, do not use extension cords or power strips.
Basically, feel if it is overheated. if it is let it cool down. If not try a different wall socket. If that doesn't work you probably have a problem with your power brick or console. Try borrowing someone else's power cords.

SOURCE: my xbox 360 won't turn on

I know what to do.... it happened to me, but I fixed it. Ok you will need a peperclip for this to work. Take off the faceplate of the 360. And then what should have been the powerbutton, use the paperclip to hit it. It should turn on, then you can put the faceplate back on.

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.

It sounds like your power brink may have over heated or faulted. Please see this page for information.

The light is flashing orange on adapter and no power to system when turned on


It is possible that there is some foreign particles inside one of the connectors. Since the power supply does come apart and also disconnects from the unit, you can try to clean it to see if it will sort out your problem. Here's what to try:

1. Disconnect the AC adapter from the wall and the console. Let it rest for a few hours so that you do not electrocute yourself.

2. Disconnect the wall power cord from the AC adapter brick. Check the connections on both ends to see if it needs to be cleaned.

3. Clean any ends of the adapter with alcohol solution (isopropyl, or "rubbing" alcohol). Make sure the connection to the console is clean as well. Allow to dry.

4. Reconnect all necessary parts and try your console again.

If that does not work, there could be another problem with power flow to the AC adapter or a problem with the adapter itself.

All of sudden the xbox wont turn on, never had problems before


well if you press the power button and light isnt on check plug connection going into console and then from console it goes back into the ac adapter. make sure its plugged in tight. To make sure ac adapter is working fine there is a small light on the side if it is green it is working fine if it is either orange or red you have a problem and may need a new adapter. If so you can get a new/used one from your local game store. hope this helps and good luck

I just bought a Belkin wireless router for my internet to connect with my microsoft xbox 360 wireless adapter. the light turns on the adapter but it is a amber color and not red or green like always...


I've never heard of a Wireless Adapter turning amber or orange? This can be a simple light problem inside your Xbox 360. If it were fixed, the highest possibility is that color should be red. If so, this means the connection is not strong enough to your modem, and adapter. You will have move your Xbox 360 console closer to your wireless modem for the connection to be the best.

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.
