You can buy power supllies and controllers for it at best buy, but by the time you pay for that, for about 50 dollars more, you can get a new one with the new price drop. Your call.

Xbox power


I had the same issue with an origional xbox 360. I tried different cables but all the same. I jumped on youtube and found how to get into the internals and was quite easy. Then I spent ages cleaning all the dust and crud out. Then it worked well. The power box on the cord also has a fan and I also cleaned it out. Well does in australia. Not shure about overseas models. Could be worth ago

cheeers.

My XBOX 360 will not turn on. The power bar has a green light but pressing the eject button or power button on the console will not turn it on. We have tried plugging it in to a different outlet but that...


Hi christoph52893,

If the Xbox 360 power supply light is green, this means the Xbox 360 power supply is ok and it is an issue with the console itself. You will need to contact Xbox 360 customer support to service your console. However, if you have a flashing orange or yellow light, it means that your console is fine but instead there is something wrong with your power supply. It indicates that it's not getting enough power.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Red light on power box for 360


i have to personally dissagree with 'wildbear' :-)
well not actually dissagree but i think the problem will be at lot less technical than all the writing he has done.
a simpler check.......does the 360 'switch on' ??
i assume with a red light on the power brick it dosnt ??
the problem is more likely a faulty pin (terminal) inside one of the USB slots you have been using for either a controller charger or wired controller (or a usb memory stick to play music thru ur xbox??)......plugging chargers/wired controllers in & out of either the 2 front slots (behind the flap) or the 1 at the back can sumtimes bend one of the terminals causing it to touch the outer casing of the usb slot ?? if it does this it shorts the board of the 360 which in turn stops u powering up the 360 all together :-(
one of the signs of this is a 'RED' light on the power brick & the 360 not powering up at all !! but sumtimes the power brick light will stay orange or even green.....even with this fault ! it dosnt always turn red !
One way to rectify it is (un-plug the powere brick from the mains first) & unplug ALL USB CONNECTIONS TO THE 360 !! (controller chargers ect) & try powering up the 360 !! (after plugging it back in)
if this fails ur gonna need a torch & a little screw driver (or tweezers) un-plug everything from the 360 & look inside ALL usb slots you have used ! check to see if any of the prongs have bent accidently whilst plugging in & out chargers ect ..... if they have straighten them so they are not touching any of the sides of the usb slot....
after doing this ...plug back in and 'hopefully' Whoooop Whooooop :-)

hope this helps ??
failing this it maybe as wildbear suggests & its a problem with the power brick altho i very much doubt it ?? they normally way out live an xbox !
remember thumbs up if this helps :-)

Worth anything?


Hi,
sure it,s worth something. the hard-drives usually fetch around £25-£35.
a new/replacement power supply unit, may cost around £30+ which is the only way to see if it,s Working Order. And An A/V to T/V lead may cost between £7-£10. if you know someone that has a working 360, might be wise to try the console on thier power-brick and a/v lead. before actually spending anything on it. without testing it. the only item of any value is the hard-drive.

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.

My xbox 360 won't start up the light on the power box is flashing orange


This is a common fault with the 360, it says that its a "general hardware failure" which could mean anything
really. In truth its the lead free solder that cracks with so much heat and as a result the Xbox 360 fails
causing the 3rrod (3 red rings of death) or e74 or even no sound but graphics or sound and no graphics just like you are reporting.

if the power is not getting from the power block to the motherboard or there is a problem with the solder like i mentioned above the power brick light will flash to let you know theres a problem.


this could also be overheating though, what i would try is getting another power supply and try it again, if your 360 works then you know its your power supply at fault. if it does the same i would either do the 3rrod repair fix yourself or get it repaired professionally.

Alright, lets fix this!
 Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow.
Usually when the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange it's on standby so there is no problem with your Xbox 360 console but the power supply can't supply it with power !

First you have to try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for a minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cords at all.
If it's still doing the same it will be definitely a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply.
So, in this case please contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill the Xbox 360 power supply.

Xbox 360 power supply light is red.
There is something wrong with the Xbox 360 power supply connection so try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for 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 would be for sure a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply .
So, then contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill your Xbox 360 power supply .



You can also find replacement power cords many places online. See if you can get your hands on another cord and try that to see if its the current power cord.
Hope this helps you out! Please don't forget to rate :)

My xbox 360 won't turn on!!!


When it says ORANGE on the Power box, that means that the Power box is waiting for the console to be connected, You might wanna try another power box if you have a friend or relative nearby, and if another power box does the same thing, then you can call xbox support to check the warranty of your xbox 360, then send it in for repairs

FYI:
The light on the power supply should be GREEN in order for the console to turn on

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
