Hmm sounds similar to me. I saw a post stating that usb port where the controllers are connected were shorting out to ground. So I took my 360 apart and sure enough the pins were shorted to ground. A good thing to check is the orange light on the power brick. If before you plug it into the back of the 360 its a steady orange light and then you plug it into the console it blinks (pay attention) its a good possibitility that it is shorting out somewhere in the console. If you have a mulitmeter you can check the back of the power plug input to ground or the controller usb to ground. Even though I found that this was my problem with my xbox unfortunately for me my board was also fried. From now on Im going to collect xbox's that are broken and use them to fix my new xbox when it breaks(im sure it will) because microsoft enjoys putting out an infererior piece of ****. I'll be dam*** if ill pay anyone a penny and wait half a year to get a repaired (but still broken) xbox back, when I know Ill be able to fix my own. Maybe Ill open up my own 360 repair shop just to show microsoft how. customer service should be handled. Anyway hope that helps and you have better luck then I did.

Alright, lets fix this!
Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow.
Usually when the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange it's on standby so there is no problem with your Xbox 360 console but the power supply can't supply it with power !
First you have to try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for a minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cords at all.
If it's still doing the same it will be definitely a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply.
So, in this case please contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill the Xbox 360 power supply.
Xbox 360 power supply light is red.
There is something wrong with the Xbox 360 power supply connection so try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cord at all.
If it's still red that would be for sure a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply .
So, then contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill your Xbox 360 power supply .
You can also find replacement power cords many places online. See if you can get your hands on another cord and try that to see if its the current power cord.
Hope this helps you out! Please don't forget to rate :)

That means that the Power box is waiting for the console to be connected. if it does not work again then you can call xbox support to check the warranty of your xbox 360 then send it for repair.
I hope that will help you.

could be a simple broken power button or maybe a cracked solder point in the base of your console female power plug...
or even a internal eletrical problem...
Check and test with another power supply...

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.
