Check your Audio/Video cable connection, sometimes those lights means that the plug isn't in the xbox/tv all the way

My xbox was working and it cut off 5mins into me starting, the power supply light turned red. so i unplug evrythng plug it back up, the light is on standby (,yay) try to turn it on and the light turns...

I wouldn't recommend messing with it. The power supply is defective, and messing with a power supply is very dangerous. get a new power supply, just make sure that it is compatible with your xbox(there are 3 different versions of xbox power supplies out there)

Do you have a battery powered controller? Try replacing the batteries.
Corded one? Make sure it is fully plugged in and the cord is not frayed in any places.

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. Give it a minute then reconnect it all back, also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cord at all.

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
