Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

No power! My xbox 360 will not turn on. I was wondering if it was the power supply or if it was something a little more serious. There was a storm and now the television that was plugged into the outlet still works but both my 360 and regular xbox wont even turn on.

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!

Xbox blew after storm


If you have a friend with an Xbox 360 then ask to borrow his power cord to see if it's just your cord that took the damage. If it still doesn't work then your basically in the hurt bag.

We just lost power due to storm and my xbox 360 was plugged in with the generator running and now we have power but my xbox 360 will not turn on. I havnt the slightest clue what to do.


Leave it off for a few minutes then try to reboot it. If it continues to stay dead after your original power source comes back on, you may want to take it to a technician to have it looked at. It's very possible that the storm could have blown the battery, but lets not jump to conclusions so soon!
Good luck!

I finished fixing the red rings and my 360 was working fine but it doesnt turnm on now. WHY?


Is your power supply getting power (ie. is the light yellow). When you hit the switch on the (XBOX), does the power supply turn light turn green? If not, the XBOX is not recognizing the switch or the power supply is bad.. If it is, then you may want to recheck your red rings fix. The parts you've installed may have come loose and shorted something out.

If your trying to turn the XBOX on with a joystick, you may have to resync them. Try using the XBOX switch on. If it turns on with the XBOX switch and not the joysticks, it could be the wireless component in the XBOX or the joystick batteries.


**NOTE: I am saying XBOX but I mean the 360.

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.

Red Light on Plug in connecter thing


Sounds like there is something wrong with the Xbox 360 power supply, try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord.

If it's still red that suggests fault with your Xbox 360 power supply so will need to contact Xbox 360 customer support if its under warranty they should be able to sort it out for you. If out of warranty it might cost you for a new power supply!

Orange or Yellow Indicator Light

When the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow this means there is no problem with your console but the power supply can't supply it with power.

To remedy this problem, first try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. You'll also want to uplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord.

Wait for about five minutes and then reconnect everything. You might also want to try plugging it into another wall outlet without an extension cord.

If you are still getting an orange or yellow indicator light, then something is at fault with the Xbox 360 power supply. If this is the case, contact the Xbox 360 customer support to get a new one

E74 error


E74 for XBOX 360 is a hardware failure.  Unplug all controllers, hard drives, memory card(s).  Unplug and reseat the power cable and the A/V  cable.  Check the power supply to see that color led lights up when you turn the console on.  If it is red or orange it is an issue with the power supply (either overheating or too much/too little power.  If you are plugging the power supply into a cheap surge protector plug it directly into the wall.  If none of these suggestions work then you need to contact Microsoft.

Help with xbox 360


try pressing and holding the bluetooth button on your 360 while doing this turn your xbox on and keep holding until it boots completely even if it does not make it to the boot screen just keep holding it until you think the time would have passed for it to boot up. power off your xbox. wait about 5 minutes and then reboot believe me this little method fixes alot of the xbox problems so it makes me wonder if some of the error codes are really correct. one more thing i strongly recommend the use of a cooling device for the 360 which ever one you choose
