Hi, I have an xbox that shows orange on power brick..When I turn the console on, the fan runs for a sec or two, the power brick flashes green then console shows three red lights and power brick reverts to...

If you watch the power supply light it will probably
flash red for a 1/2 second then orange . And if
the fan shuts off then you have a shorted regulator and
it's normally the two closes to the Ring of lights P.C.
board plug . I have swapped those parts out before
but their tough to get of the board with out the right
tools ( reflow wand) the cost of repair shouldn't be
more than 60.00 -80.00 so shop around for the
best warranty.

Power comes on but will not do red or green lights.power light flashs.all controler lights flash and do not stop

Check the power supply, check wires and make sure they are plugged in securely. Also make sure that the power brick (if you have one) has an orange light when plugged in. If not, you will need to buy a new power supply (wire) for your xbox.

Console flashing red, wont do anything,is there a reset

This may be an indicator of a problem with the Xbox 360's hardware. To help confirm this, turn on your console and check the power supply (the big gray brick) light. If the light on it is red, orange, unlit or anything other than green, make sure it's plugged in correctly. If that checks out, try a different outlet. If it still doesn't work, you'll have to buy a new power supply for it.

If the light is green, then you definitely have a hardware problem. The only way to resolve this is to go to this site where you can ship the 360 in for repairs. If you've bought the 360 less than 3 years ago, the repair will be of no cost to you, and Microsoft will even provide the box.

If it's been more than three years since you've purchased your 360, I believe it will cost $93 to have it repaired.

Hope this helps :)

Xbox 360 has orange light on the power brick,no power to console?

Mine has an orange light and works fine. i think that's standby mode. it turns green as soon as the 360 powers up. try replacing the power cord that goes from the 360 back to the power block. It may be faulty.

My xbox 360 AC adapter is in yellow light and the console is not working, what i do to make it to chage to green light?

If you have no power to the console or the console itself is not powered on then the light will not turn green. In other words...until you can turn the power on to your xbox 360 the light will remain yellow. Check the connection to the back of your 360 it may have wiggled loose somehow. The instant that the power brick senses power making a complete cycle in your 360 your light will turn green. If the 360 fails to turn on when you push the power button or when you push the center button on your wireless controller or when you push the center button on a wired or wireless controller that is connected physically to the 360 then I hope it is still under warranty. If not then you should contact someone about how to repair this issue. It may be that the power button is the only thing broken on this machine.

While trying to power up my xbox 360 the power brick has an amber/Orange light. When I hit the power button on the 360 I get a green center light and a quick green flash on the power brick, but then...

The red ring of death occurs when an Xbox 360 overheats and melts some of the internal solder that holds components together. This occurs because microsoft distributes them with low quality solder to save money. There are many people who can solve this problem in every state. I live in Rhode Island and there is one person who lives right down my street who does it. You can also send it back to microsoft if it's been less than 3 years since you bought it, because that will be covered under the warranty. -Good luck, and I hope this helps

What color should the light on the power brick be? I am new to the 360s so im unsure. The light on the power brick is orange. I just bought it

Well the Power Brick in Orange because the console is truned off, signaling the "Brick" is on standby. Or the Orange light can mean the "Brick" is not connected to the console.
