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.

It wont turn on but the box light is orange


The orange light on the brick indicates that the power supply is in standby mode. This can happen when the power supply cord is not fully inserted into the 360s socket. Disconnect and then reconnect the power cord at each end to make sure that you firmly connect the cord. If your using an extension cord of some kind, disconnect and instead plug it directly into the wall socket. Hope this helps!

Try using another Power outlet or try turning it on by pushing the eject button. Your power button may be defective. I'm sorry, but if that doesn't work I'm afraid your gonna have to call 1-800-4-MY-XBOX There may be something wrong with your console.

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.

Ive got an angle iron to fit but unsure how to install in it.im taking the window out and putting french doors in the solder bricks on top of window are lose hence the iron im just unsure how to fit it


The horizontal part fits into the side bricks--you need to remove mortar to allow it to slide in. The upper bricks need to be reset on top of the iron in fresh mortar. Hope you bought a heavy piece of iron to span the distance and support any weight above.

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.

Chris 360 issue


Hi Chris,
If it,s just the power brick, it,ll be cheaper to just have a new one shipped to you. out of curiosity have you checked the plug to see if the fuse has Blown ?
