    Sorry I ment to post that as a clarification not a solution.

    Are you playing with a play and charge kit, if so disconnect the wire from the console,this happens with mine sometimes.

    If the center light is on but no ring and your controller will not sync,and you are using an hdmi cable make sure it is pushed fully into the console and tv.

    Remember thumbs up if this helps.

Power supply light stays orange and wont turn on the XBOX PRO. HELP!

I hope this helps The power supply light is orange for one of the following reasons:
  • The console is turned off.
  • The power supply is not plugged into the console or the connection is not tight.
  • The power supply is not functioning properly.
Note An orange light usually indicates that the power supply is connected to electricity and ready to power the console. When you turn on the console, the power supply light should change from orange to green. If your console does not turn on, please see the following Knowledge Base articles: 907588 ( ) Your original xbox 360 console will not turn on

Orange LED indicator on the "Power Ring"

From the sounds of things you have a bad RF Board. This is the board that controls the syncing of your controllers, as well as your ring of light. If there is someone in your area that fixes the RROD they may be able to replace your RF board as well. I'd be happy to do it, but shipping would be almost the same cost as the repair. Contact me at for more info.

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

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
