Well the Power Brick in Orange because the console is truned off, signaling the "Brick" is on standby. Or the Orange light can mean the "Brick" is not connected to the console.

Monitor turns black


As you had stated that the monitor is working if the power brick is off.The back light shutdown might be a cause of static from your power brick, or other thing is it might be your setting for back light level or power scheme.Some configuration needs to open BIOS settings.To check if the power brick is the cause of problem is good to have a known good one or try to monitor if it is charging or not by monitoring the battery indicator if the power brick is off.

The power brick on my xbox 360 is red and is not overheating yet i smaell burning plastic from my xbox 360 console anyone have any tips?


A red light on the xbox 360 power brick usually indicates the Xbox 360 console has a short circuit. Here is how to be sure:

1. Try unplugging the power brick from the wall and from the xbox 360.
2. Wait about 30 seconds and plug the power brick into the wall power outlet.
3. Make sure the indicator light on the power brick is orange. ( If it's not orange then get yourself a new power brick and try again ).
4. Plug the power brick into the Xbox 360 console and try to power it on.
If your power brick turns red or you get an immediate three red ring error than you will need to have the console professionally repaired.
If your warranty with Microsoft has expired; the company I work for GATpro Repairs offers this service at a low flat rate and we pay for the return shipping.
Good Luck and I hope this has helped!

I have a xbox console and 3 month ago used to work but now it does not and even it does not start on .i donot know if it is the power cord or what.


Check the colored light on the power brick. It should be orange when the xbox is off and green when it's on. If the light doesn't light up then you have a bad power brick.

My Xbox 360 won't turn on. When I plug the power cable into the wall, the orange light on the power brick lights up as normal, but if you plug the other end into the Xbox, the orange light starts blinking....


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

You can daignose if the problem is with power brick or computer itself, by connecting any other electorinc device from power brick. See if the green light continue to blink. Further there is a chart given on the power brick, which indicates which lights should be ON for normal state. You can also try replacing the phuse on power brick, if faulty.

Xbox 360s power brick is making a beeping noise and orange light


Your power brick might be faulty. Unplug everything, wait 10 minutes and then plug it all back in. You can also try connecting your X1's USB jack to a nearby PC or laptop to see if that helps. As a last solution, you could just get a USB power adapter like Turtle Beach sells for the X1: http://www.turtlebeach.com/products/efx1a/replacementparts.aspx
This will let you plug in your X1's power directly to an electrical outlet.
