Re: regular xbox

It might be the wiring in the cord that hooks the Xbox(R) into the outlet, or it could be the outlet, hope this helps

Your Xbox 360 lens are most likely dirty. And your 360 probably has something like dust stopping it from scanning your games. I suggest blowing into your DVD drive carefully and gently. If it still doesn't work I recommend sending your Xbox 360 back to Microsoft for a new one if your under warranty. If you don't have a warranty you could clean you lens by your self. But opening your 360 to clean the lens could make it worse so do it at your own risk.

Xbox 360 controller wont connect

Try replacing the batteries. I think you would have tried that but go ahead and try again. If you are new with 360s try to sinc the controller with the 360. Hope that all works.

dont try tearing your controller apart to try to get it to work. If it doesnt work take it back to the store you got it from and try to get your money back.

If all of that doesnt work............. buy a new controller.

My original xbox has no power at all.could it be power supply?

It sounds to me like the PSB. (power supply board)  you can get them fairly cheap, but you have to know what version your xbox is.  If you are unsure, google "determining xbox version".  Then go to ebay or
Here is one for about $15|66:2|65:12|39:1|240:1318|301:0|293:1|294:50

Orange or Yellow Indicator Light

When the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow this means there is no problem with your console but the power supply can't supply it with power.

To remedy this problem, first try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. You'll also want to uplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord.

Wait for about five minutes and then reconnect everything. You might also want to try plugging it into another wall outlet without an extension cord.

If you are still getting an orange or yellow indicator light, then something is at fault with the Xbox 360 power supply. If this is the case, contact the Xbox 360 customer support to get a new one

Sound with no picture

Have you looked at the side of the cable and made sure that the switch is set correctly? you have to select either HDTV of AV I believe. If that isn't the problem, try hooking it up through a different input on your television. I don't think it's your xbox because with any hardware failure, you would get the RRoD (red ring of death). I would definitely troubleshoot the TV. Try to hook up a regular DVD player in the input that your xbox is in and see if it works.
