Similar to: Power cord overheating at outlet - melted cord a bit

Hey Johnathan,
I can't tell you exactly what the problem with your cord might be, but it almost definitely lies within the cord itself and not in your appliance. The best option is service for your product, or replacement. You could splice a working cord to your product, but this is a sketchy process that will likely involve future electrical hazards that I'm sure you'd like to avoid. Hope this helps!

My powerbrick lightis orange but my xbox360 wont turn on

If the light on the power brick stays orange after turning the console on it means the brick is not properly functioning. You can attempt to clean the power brick with a can of air. Also make sure it has ventilation and is not sitting on carpet. This can cause the power brick itself to overheat and cause issues with it and the console itself. Also make sure your 360 is not plugger into a surge suppressor as this can cause issue due to double protection.
If possible, test the power brick on a different console, and test the console on a different power brick. This will narrow down your problem area.

Two rings of death

If by two rings you mean that only two of the four parts of the ring is red, then I can help you.
The two rings means that the console is overheating and will not play games until you have cooled it down. Also try to put the console in a well spaced place, so that it may have enough cool air and you will never experience this problem again.

Xbox360 repair price

Hey Javon,

From my experience you only have to pay to get it repaired if you're out of the warranty. However, I don't believe you should have to pay regardless if the problem you get on your xbox360 is a problem caused by Microsoft's design. IE.. The overheating issue.

But, if your laser goes bad, DVD drive door isn't opening and things of that nature, it's not out of the question since alot of those problems could be caused by something the owner of the xbox has done.
