Hey... check the usb port where you have been connecting the controller to recharge... If the pins in the USB port are bent and making contact with each other or the metal casing around them the console won't turn on at all... not even for a sec. If they are bent or damage try and straighten them out and... Hope this help!!! God Bless You All...

Check the date of manufacture on the back of the console and if its less than 3 years old register it with microsoft,l once you have done this contact them about your console and tell them it has the red ring of death
they will send a courier free of charge to pick it up and then repair it for you free also.

Can i put my x box 360 hard drive on an xbox arcade.


I assume you mean the XBOX 360 Arcade system.
Your 360 hard drive will work on all 360 systems.
It does not matter if you have a Pro or Elite or Arcade system, the Hard Drive is the same.

try the clearcache trick used to wipe only the basic memory from the HDD this may do the trick,
Go to the system blade and then select memory.
Press Y on the HD symbol and then press X,X,Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X. Once you do this a messsage will appear saying: Do you want to perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage devices?

Old Harddrive New Xbox


You will not have any problems using the Hard drive on your new console. The only catch is any Live Arcade downloads will not work offline until you do the DRM transfer. Even though you are using the same Hard Drive the DRM is married to the original console. They have made it easy to transfer now. All you need is to be logged into XBOX Live and a computer that is on the internet. Just turn on your console, log it into XBOX Live, and use the computer to go to www.xbox.com/drm That will solve all of your problems.

Xbox 360


The Arcade model comes with no harddrive, no hdmi (for digital connection to an HDTV), and I beleive the controller is wired instead of wireless. If you are planning on just playing games then the arcade may be a good choice for you as it's cheaper but you may find yourself wanting a hard drive sooner than later. Without a hard drive you will not be able to purchase or rent movies and you will not be able to download game demos and Xbox Live Arcade games. To compensate Microsoft includes a disc with some of the greatest hits of XBox Live Arcade with the Arcade version. The Pro comes with a 20GB hard drive but still no HDMI. The Elite version has a 120GB hard drive and HDMI. For most people the Pro is the one to get. If you were to get the Arcade then purchase a hard drive later you will pay more than the price of the pro.
