    Well if you can solder, you can buy the part from herehttp://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?... I recommend using a professional soldering iron and a soler ******, not a heat gun, as you will melt the plastic struts for this repair.

If you are good with soldering, you can do the repair yourself. Remember, this will void the warranty on your console. You can buy the part from eBay. You will then have to open the console, there are many guides to opening the console on the internet. Once the console is open, strip it and remove the motherboard. Then use a soldering iron and a solder ****** to loosen the usb-port assembly. This can get tricky. Remember not to use too much heat or you can damage the pc board. Once the part is loose, clean the circuit. Now place the replacement part into the same position and solder it in. I'm doing this repair. Just waiting on the parts. I'll post pictures when I do it.

My power supply has a yellow light and my xbox will not start up.


The power brick is ok, I find that this is usually a fault with a usb port, remove your faceplate, and look into the 2 usb ports on the front of the console, you are looking for any pins that are touching each other, or damage to the black locater bar, if there is damage this will short out your box thats why it won't switch on.
The best thing to do is to separate any pins that are touching or remove the broken locater bar, then put some tape over the port so you don't use it by mistake.
Vote if ithis helps.

My usb port is broken the metal bits have bent right round


There is no real fix for this other than trying to bend them back. Has this happened to all USB ports? There are 2 on the front & 1 on the back of the 360.

If not, use a USB hub on one of them to make up for the broken port. Not much else you can do other than take it back to the shop you got it from or contact microsoft to see if they will repair it though it will likely cost a lot.

My xbox 360 isn't tuning on i press the button and


It might do when you say you have broken the USB port there could be a short which is preventing the Console from turning on. Mske sure none of the pins are touching one another but make sure you turn off the console so you dont do any more damage,.

Front usb port of xbox looks broken, unit does nothing now


Simple. Just solved it with advice from this site. If you see any of the gold prongs touching the side (or possibly each other) then find a thing tool and try to hook the gold prongs so they point direct upwards. how bad they get bent doesnt matter, just get them all standing up and not touching the sides. you probably cant use the port again but atleast it turns on.

Xbox 360 ethernet port -not working usb??


no the xbox doesnt work with the usb to ethernet adapter. i thought it would work also. and it turns out it does. this would be because you have to install the device drive for it to work, and you cant do this on your xbox. but radioshack sells ethernet ports for about $6 if you know how to switch them out.
