Try plugging into another power source. Check the large box that's between the wall, and the plug into the back of the xbox. Does the orange light on that rectangular box light up?

This is quite a common problem, the good news is that it is probably something really simple.
Have a look at the two USB ports on the front of your Xbox, you will probably find that on one of them the black insert has come out (probably with whatever was plugged into it last) you need to push the now unprotected pins away from the side of the port. You should now be able to turn you Xbox on. Don't try to use this port again, personally I would put tape over it just to make sure.

SOURCE: No power!
Duke, take a look at the big 'powerbrick' that powers your xbox, on the front of it there will be a small LED, it should be red/orange if your xbox is turned off. If you see NO LED light then your powerbrick is no longer functioning.
If you DO see a LED, then its likley the Xbox is at fault.
Hope this helps!

you have to disconnect and reconnect the power cables to the 360. Orange/yellow light means that your power supply is on a standby mode and the 360 is not getting enough power/electricity inside

SOURCE: Scratched Xbox 360 motherboard
Usually if a motherboard has been scored or damaged.
( tracks or resistors/capacitors dislodged et,c )
The board is in the Bin. ( scrap ) unless the damage can be repaired. The RROD Or red-ring of death. Is usually due to the x-clamps fitted to the console initially, by the manufacturer.
Replacing the x-clamps, with a kit ( bolts/washers thermal Compound ) And 4 x heatpads recommended. Can cure the RROD. And in my own experience the 1 red light And E74 error.
Bottom line, if the boards scratched. it,s in the Bin.
