Disconnect everything and reconnect it,if that doesn't work, try to hook it up in a different room. If you are still having problems, you need to contact customer support and may have to order a new power supply cord.

My Ac Adapter i think is broken and my Xbox wont turn on but the AC adapter has a orange light that when i unplug it the orange light still does not go off.


Hi if the main brick has got an orange light then this is telling you the mains lead is working so try doing the following

1 unplug all leads from back of xbox and turn the power brick off at mains
2 plug the power lead back into the xbox, now when you push it in and it stops try pushing it in a little bit further usually they just dont push in far enough and it can be quite tight so make sure you are pushing it in hard enough,
3 now plug the video lead in and try switching it on,
keep an eye on the orange light whilst you switch it on if it comes on then it should continue to work if it dont come on watch the orange light and see it if changes color at the same time your switching it on, it will either flash green or red just once before going back to orange.

let me know what happens ok

When my Xbox 360 is off, the light on the AC Adapter is orange, but when I hit the power button to turn the Xbox 360 on, the light on the AC Adapter turned red.


HI you did not mention is you are able to use the unit even tho the led turns red. If not then the unit is drawing to much current and the power supply is shutting down. Or the power supply is faulty, If you can and know someone with a 360 system try to borrow theirs and see which part of the system is faulty if you know his is good and the same thing happens, or take yours to his house and try, but if same results then the 360 is at fault.

The system does not turn on. i have checked the power cord and hard drive on another system and they are okay. any ideas?


Sounds to me like the main board is bad. Last step to try just to be sure. Try another AC Adapter on your 360 and if it still doesn't work then you know the main board is bad. Also try just plugging in your ac adapter and see if the green light goes away or if it turns orange. Those are sure signs that the main board is shorting out the ac adapter. Also hook up the 360 to another power outlet.

Try moving everything to a different room on a different electrical circuit (as in electric panel outside your house). You might have too much load on that circuit for the plugs in that room. You could try unplugging everything except tv and xbox too.
