Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

I have a Xbox 360 slim and it won't turn on... It worked and then I went away for the weekend, came back and it wouldn't turn on. I replaced the rf board. I can get the power supply to turn on when I test it with a meter. I have no clue where to go from here.

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!

SOURCE: xbox 360 won't turn on

I had this problem. Make sure the pins in the USB ports (2 on the front and 1 on the back of the console) aren't bent and there's nothing obstructing them. I unbent some of the metal inside these ports, and voila! I have a working xbox.

SOURCE: MY Power Supply light is blinking orange and xbox

I hate it when people put "Red ring of Death" for a ORANGE flashing light on the power bar and actually a red ring on the front of the Xbox (which then would mean the red ring of death)!

I just fixed this problem for a friend. They had a contoller charging lead plugged in to the front which had a bad connection in it. Thats all it was so I just unplugged the charging lead and it worked.

So Unplug everything except the power and see if it works 1st, if it does then plug things back in one by one and see when it starts to flash and thats your problem lead there.

SOURCE: My xbox 360 4GB Slim

It is having internal power issues, this is very strange for a unit that is this new. Since it is only 3 days old though you are in luck, just return it to the store you purchased it from and they will gladly exchange it for a new one for you. This happens sometimes with electronics, although they are tested in the factory there is always a chance they can die out, sometimes immediately, sometimes it takes quite a while. This is why they warranty the devices, but luckily you don't even need to warranty it, you can just return it and immediately get a new one.

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.


Thanks
Tim

New headset worked about a week. now no sound, but friends can hear me. any help?


Did you possibly drop it at all ? I know that would be a common question everyone would ask seeing as stuff in the headphones could get lose or disconnect. Mine was doing the same thing awhile back and all the sudden started to work for a week or so then stopped again. I went to the store I bought it from and just got them to check it over, mine needed replacing. I would suggest myself taking it back to the store you got it from and tell them the problem.

My xbox 360 slim turn on but instantly turns back off


Sounds like the old brick cooked the Xbox somewhere when it allowed it to overheat. You'll need a replacement console or you could try baking the board but I don't recommend it if you haven't before.

Yes, it's called dead batteries.

Replace the batteries with new ones, and then just turn it on. It shouldn't be necessary to sync it to the xbox, unless yuo have synced it to another xbox lately.

How do u connect an an xbox 360 to xbox live


You need either a blue Ethernet cable to connect the Xbox to an internet outlet or a wireless router. If you use the wireless router, hook it up to your computer so it broadcasts a signal, then, depending on what Xbox you have, if its the new 360 slim you won't need a wireless adapter, you search for the signal, then connect it. If you don't have the 360 slim, then you need to buy a wireless adapter and it plugs into the back of the Xbox.

None of my wireless XBox 360 controlers will connect to to my XBox 360. I have tried replacing batteries, syncing it with the system, turning my system off then on again, removing any obstructions near the...


If the wireless controllers won't connect under any circumstances even with the Charge-and-Play Cable then you most likely have a problem with a board inside your 360, i think it's like the RF board or something, mind you, the C-P cord only forces through an electrical charge and does not force the controller and console to connect, it just works when your batteries are low, in the event that your console is faulty, you can purchase RF boards and replace them yourself (voids the warranty but takes 20 minutes) or send it into XBox HQ (gives you more warranty but takes like 6 months)
