Try another known working ac adaptor and if you get the same symptoms then you know the system is bad, if the symptoms go away then you know its a problem with your original ac adaptor.

Cannot open the disk and cannot read the disk as well. The green light at the center of the ring always blinking


Hello
If you only get a flashing green light on the center while you turn on the console. You should get a green light going in a circle around the center light, (the 4 other lights, that can turn red as well (famous Red Ring of death))
if you don't get any red or green lights around the flashing center ring, then the console is not able to turn on / boot up properly and is in need of repairs, check the powersupply led, what color is it? it should be green when you power on and orange when not in use.

Xbox 360 power supply light turns yellow when xbox 360 is off (usually i think) and turns green when on, I've had one red ring on my xbox to,twice


make sure your xbox is in an open area where it can breathe, otherwise the one red ring means there is a hardware failure, if it is under warrenty send it back into xbox, otherwise there are some diy fixes on youtube

Controller wont hook up with console ?


Is this a new controller?
Are the batteries new/recharged?

This is the sequence summary on where you are going to focus:
Step 1 - Controller
Step 2 - Console
Step 3 - Console
Step 4 - Controller
Step 5 - Both

Assuming your controller is a wireless version, Lets start!

Step 1 | Press and hold the Xbox Guide button until the controller turns on. The Xbox Guide button is the round button with the green "X" near the center of the controller.

Step 2 | Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned on. If your Xbox 360 console is not turned on, press the power button. The power button is the large round button on your Xbox 360 console.

Step 3 | On the Xbox 360 console, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small round button on the Xbox 360 console.

Step 4 | On the controller, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small button on the front edge of the controller, between the left bumper button and the charging port.

Step 5 | After the Ring of Light spins and flashes one time on the controller and on the console, the controller is connected. The quadrant on the Ring of Light that remains lit indicates the position in which the controller is connected.

Light indicator on console
Green light in the center- power is on
Green light on one quadrant - controller is connected
Four green lights rotating on four quadrants - ready to connect with controller

Light indicator on wireless controllers
No lights - no batteries
Green steady light on one quadrant - connected
Blinking green lights - its either its ready to connect or the batteries are dying

*Make sure that you have a fully recharged rechargeable batteries
*Make sure that you have a functioning/new non-rechargeable batteries
*If the steps above aren't working use another Xbox360 controller and follow the same steps.

If the new/working controller is connecting with the console this means that the previous controller is faulty - needs replacement.
If the new/working controller is not connecting with the console this may mean that the console is faulty - needs repair.

*NEVER TAMPER WITH ANY OF THE TWO AS TAMPERING WILL VOID EXISTING WARRANTY.

I finished fixing the red rings and my 360 was working fine but it doesnt turnm on now. WHY?


Is your power supply getting power (ie. is the light yellow). When you hit the switch on the (XBOX), does the power supply turn light turn green? If not, the XBOX is not recognizing the switch or the power supply is bad.. If it is, then you may want to recheck your red rings fix. The parts you've installed may have come loose and shorted something out.

If your trying to turn the XBOX on with a joystick, you may have to resync them. Try using the XBOX switch on. If it turns on with the XBOX switch and not the joysticks, it could be the wireless component in the XBOX or the joystick batteries.


**NOTE: I am saying XBOX but I mean the 360.

Xbox won't turn on


Thisis what happens before the red ring of death comes. Prepare for it. Get ready to send it in. To manually fix it takes great electronic skill.

My xbox controllers will not charge with the plug in kit. The light turns red, then either immediately green, or it starts to blink red-off-red-off.


I had the same problem. The Battery pack on mine was dead for a long time as i havent touched my Xbox 360 in a while. So
SOLUTION
Step 1. Plug the play and charge cord into the controller
Step 2. If Light turns green within a minute or so, Unplug the play and charge cord and go to Step 1 (Repeating this process until the light stays red on the play and charge cord (3-10 times))
