Re: Xbox 360 got wet

  • Yes, +12 and +-5v fuses.. inside.. near the power connector pads on mainboard.. The first series they were round black buttons with silver numbering 5 and 12 xxxx (memory screams 5s-v2xxx on the 5v ones.. dead simple to find.. first thing in line with the voltage rails..) on the tops.. they should show no resistance if tested. I would hazard a guess at the +12 being the culprit as all the lights are powered from that line, but any one missing will stop it starting up.. chances are if you investigate in that area you will find a cap or a regulator/stabilizer blown/burned.. There's alsonanfuse in the power brick, for all that its worth its just too much trouble to go through just buy a new console. We aren't here to insult people who need help with problems Diini80.

I plugged 110 volts xbox 360 into 220 volts outlet. and it's dead. what will i do?

Unless the item has internal fuse, it is burned up.
Look for product manual.
Many times, there is a glass fuse rated for unit voltage.
Replace fuse.
Each fuse has specific markings.

My xbox 360 wireless controller won't turn on

If it has a rechargeable pack on it try swapping it out with a "AA" battery pack. sometimes the rechargeable batteries can go bad. If the controller still won't turn on then you have an internal problem and you will need a new controller. :)
Or you can try getting your controller fixed, although there in not very many people that are willing to work on controllers

Hopefully I can help with this.
Go to google and type Windows Live Log In. you should see a link to visit the windows live log in page.
Click "sign in" Click the " Forgot your password" link.
Select "I forgot my password" and "Reset your password

Enter the email address you think you used for Xbox LIVE. Continue entering email addresses that you've used in the past. Once you enter the correct one, a new page will appear. You can guess your email as many times as you want.
Select "Email me a reset link." Click "Next." Open the email account you send the password to. If you forgot your password to that email, use the email client's password recovery tool.
Open the "Xbox LIVE" email and click on the provided link. The link will redirect you to the password reset page. Enter your new password twice. Click "Next
Turn on your Xbox 360 and sign into your Xbox LIVE profile. You should be able to enter your new information to log on to your account and access anything on Xbox LIVE, such as buying a game.

Hello Brian

Using Xbox Live on Dial up Modem would be a big pain, still listing the steps for you, hope you have a stable connection to successfully connect

Required Items

- Windows ME, XP, Vista
- PC with dial-up connection working
- Ethernet Cable (RJ45) cable or CROSSOVER CABLE
- Xbox 360

Let's Get Started

1. First connect the Xbox 360 and the PC using the Ethernet cable.
2. Double Click your Dial-up Network connection and wait for it to connect.
3. Choose "Start Menu" and then choose "Settings" then "Control Panel".
4. Select "Network and Internet Connections".
5. Open the "Network Setup Wizard" and then press "Next".
6. On the next screen Ignore the checklist and press "Next" again.
7. Select "This Computer connects directly to the internet." and press "Next".
8. Now Select your dial-up internet connection as your default connection to the Internet and press "Next".
9. Select "Local Area Connection" as your private connection and leave all other areas untouched and click "Next".
10. On the Workgroup screen leave all settings alone and click the "Next" button.
11. On the next screen Turn on "File and Printer Sharing" if you want to share your files, mp3's, divx files with your xbox 360 and click "Next".
12. Now review the settings and click "Next" to apply the changes.
13. You do not need to run the Network Setup Wizard on any other pc's so just click "Next" and continue.
Now that the wizard has completed you may need to reboot your PC and dial your internet connection again.
Xbox 360 Setup

Now we have configured your PC to share its internet connection and files to your Xbox 360 we need to configure the Xbox 360.

(Steps for old Xbox 360 Dashboard, in case you do not have NXE dashboard)

1. Go to the "Xbox 360 Dashboard".
2. Select the "System" Blade.
3. Select the "Network Settings" Option
4. Now choose "Test Xbox LIVE Connection".

Your Xbox 360 will now attempt to contact your home network. It will check to make sure it can assign itself a IP ADDRESS from your PC and then it will also check DNS server information and XBOX LIVE.

Hi i have xbox 360. it was on 110volt some on plugged into 220v. it seems it has blown the power supply. can anybody help me to to fix this problem. any reply will be highly appreciated. thanks

Hi, the power brick on your 360 is designed to "blow" in the event of a power surge or in this case to much power. Take your power brick and try to plug it in to someone else's 360 and see if it works. If it doesn't then you need to buy a new power brick ( a cheap alternative to replacing the 360). But, if it still works then you may have totally burned your 360 since they don't have an internal fuse. At that point I would take it to a repair shop and let them look at it to see the extent of the damage and give you an idea as how much it is to repair.

My 360 recently got the ring of death. it was plugged into a surge protector, lightening struck my house, and the power went out. when it came back on, my 360 had the ring. i reset the console, and it...

wrap your xbox in a DRY towel and take all the cords out except the power cord, turn it on and let it overheat, this might fix your problem did for me and about 8 of my other buddies.
NOTE: the mistake most people make is using a wet or damp towel, this can ruin your xbox
