Mine has an orange light and works fine. i think that's standby mode. it turns green as soon as the 360 powers up. try replacing the power cord that goes from the 360 back to the power block. It may be faulty.

Sounds like a bad power supply, or on two occasions I have found that one of the USB ports had a bent pin which was shorted to the metal housing, which wouldn't let the unit power on. So check all of the USB ports

Are you using a plug and play kit? if so disconnect it, mine does that sometimes, if thats not the case comment me,I would write them all down but I am getting a bit fed up with writing lots of solutions to problems and getting no response from the person I give the time to help.
