Hi first i connected the xbox with the given xbox power spply adopter later from that smoke had came out and i immediately switched off so now my xbox power supply adopter was spoiled or not it means i...

The first thing I would do, is find a buddy with another power supply and see if it was not the system. If your system is still under warenty, they will fix it for free. The power supply is way cheaper to purchase than a whole system, so you really need to make sure you're not needlessly buying things.

My xbox 360 is not coming on but there is no red rin of death. And on the box on the powercord no light is coming on. I left it in a hot room for a long time. can anyone tell me what is wrong?

Hi, if you take the power lead out the back of the xbox and plug it into the mains and switch it on you should get an orange light this should light up without the xbox being connected if this orange light on the power brick dont light up then check the fuse in the plug, change it anyway with one of the same type ie amp, then plug it in and give it a try if it it gives you orange light plug it into your xbox and you should be up and running, if it still dont work then the power brick needs replacing, see if you can try a friends to make sure your xbox hasnt blown as well and hopefully all you need is the power brick.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My xbox 360 console wouldnt turn on what to do

first check the adopter line because it is a power adopter that it requires a power point that is a more wattage point than a normal one second after that check the the four rings on the console which will turn green when power is there note that depending upon the number of controllers the green lights respond one for one controller etc note that the lights turn red when there is insufficient power so try this and get to me via this site

3 rings of death

Yes, Microsoft will give you a new xbox console if you send them your old one. Just call Microsoft at 1 800 4MY XBOX (1 800 469 9269) and follow the voice prompts.

Original xbox

16 - dashboard - Clock cannot be set.
Basically it comes down to this. Error 16 has to do with not finding the menu setting with which you can set the clock of the hdd. This happens to a lot of people that erase their hdd (original/upgraded) or MS dashboard files and after that they don't immediatly install the hdd but leave the xbox without power longer than 5 hours.
It's all about the hdd can't find the menu with which it can set the clock. This is mostly because the xbox hdd is empty (you removed dashboard or fux0red it via ftp). The problem arises when xbox searches for menu to set clock with, can't find it and voila: error 16. Well read on please!
So you have an error 16 huh? Don't worry "nothing" is broken!
You have an xbox hdd that is locked. And normally you can boot in original and modded mode. Retail or upgraded doesn't matter. You start playing around with xboxdash.xbe etc. using ftp programs. While doing this you "accidently" remove your MS dashboard and also your alternate dashboard (Evox, etc.) so there is no dash anymore on the xbox hdd.
You end the ftp session and after that you shut off your xbox. Normally when you would start up again it gives you an error 13/14 ( no dashboard found). No worries with a slayer Evox cd (and a hardmod), all is ok. BUT this is only WITHIN 3 hours or so.
This is because the internal clock of the xbox will only be kept alive by the capacitors for only 3 or 4 hours. So when you leave your xbox unplugged from electricity for over 5 hours after you have played with the .xbe's AND you have removed your (ms and evo-x) dash from your xbox than you are fux0red. Why do you ask?
Why can't I boot from disc?
Its as follows Xbox starts booting==> (almost 1st thing a xbox does is) searches for internal clock==> doesnt find internal clock because there hasn't been any electricity on the xbox for 5 hours so battery that kept clock alive is empty and clock is gone==> searches for the proper dashboard menu to set clock with ==> doesnt find msdashboard or evo-x dashboard menu becuz you have removed it from the hdd for whatever reasons you had==> xbox gives error 16: cannot set clock.
So what do you do about it? Two options!
1. There are some bios'es around that allow the chip to boot past the clocksetting. (do a search!). So how do you get that bios on your chip because you cant boot to a flash program or something? Well you need to have an external flasher.
It seems the m8 bios will take care for you of booting past the clocksetting. Or use the latest Xecutor bios
2. This is the more easy and newbie friendly strategy
-Get a friend with a modded xbox.
-Unlock his hdd with eeprom management from a slayer evo-x cd.
-Than, place his hdd in your xbox.
-Boot with your chip on.
-Now the xbox DOES find a dashboard when you boot in original mode and you can set the time in the msdashboard clock settings.
-Shut off xbox and remove your friends hdd
-PLace his hdd back in his xbox and lock it again
-Install your hdd
-(clock has been set) So boot up with slayer cd.
-Install normally whatever you wanna install
-lock hdd

If you get an error 13 after this, please read up on the error 13 explanation!
13 - kernel - Dashboard launch fail (due to missing/bad key, or anything else that would prevent it from running) and the dashboard didn't specify why it failed.

The error it gives is because of the incompatibility between the (older) dashboard (4920) that older slayer cd installs and the new dashboard/kernel versions found in some new xbox's and found in xbox's that have been connected to xbox live (when you go on xbox-live, it'll upgrade your dashboard file to i believe it is now 5659.03. This dasboard is incompatible with the dash that (old) slayer cd installs (for example 2.5 or lower) for you.

(In detail, in the eeprom chip there is a kernel which is incompatible with the dashboard (4920) that slayer installs.)

So what do you do to fix it? You can use the dashupdate found on most new xbox games! Be sure to 1st unplug your ethernet cable before you do so!!!

Besides that, just use a good installation disc and all is fine. Use a 2.6 slayer or something similar
