This is normal. The light will always be on if the power pack is plugged into the wall. There should be no lights lit on the Xbox if the power is turned off, but the power pack will still have an orange light.

Learn how to connect a wireless or wired controller to your Xbox 360 console.
Connect a wireless Xbox controller
  1. Turn on your console.
  2. Press and hold the Guide button on the controller until the controller turns on.

  1. When the lights surrounding the power button on the console stop flashing, the controller is connected.
On the Xbox 360 S console, each connected controller is assigned to one of four positions. Each position corresponds to a lighted section around the console power button and the controller Guide button. On the 360 E console, a solid green light on the front of the console indicates that the controller is connected. To determine the player position associated with your accessory, look at the ring of light that surrounds the Guide button on the controller.

71add0b7-ddf2-4439-b4b4-f50f156d92b7.png?v=1#controller-batteries-m-m.png If the controller does not turn on, check the batteries. Insert fresh AA batteries, making sure they are correctly positioned in the battery case.
You can also use the Xbox 360 Play & Charge Kit or the Xbox 360 Quick Charge Kit to power the controller. Learn more about Xbox controllers and chargers.
To connect additional controllers, follow these same steps again. You can connect up to four controllers to the console. Each connected controller is assigned a position that corresponds with the lighted sections that appear around the console's power button and around the Guide button located in the middle of each controller.
  • To disconnect a wireless controller, press and hold the Guide button for three seconds, and then choose to turn the controller off.
  • When you turn off the console, the controller will reconnect the next time you turn on the console.
  • The controller can be connected to only one console at a time. You can connect the controller to a different console, but the connection to the previously connected console will be lost.
Connect a wired Xbox controller
5fb17f50-7448-45d5-a294-9ea90994f55b.png?v=1#controller-wired-m-m.png Plug the Xbox 360 Wired Controller into a USB port on the Xbox 360 console. There are two USB ports on the front of the console. To disconnect the controller, pull on the connector, not the cable.
cbe46bf0-3a46-4d53-9d8c-6697aa57622a.png?v=1#controller-cable-release-m-m.png The cable on the Xbox 360 Wired Controller has an inline release. The inline release on the controller cable is a safety feature designed to reduce the chance of the Xbox 360 console falling if the cable is pulled.
Wireless controller troubleshooting
If your wireless controller disconnects or cannot connect to your console, see Xbox 360 Wireless Controller disconnects or can't connect.
If your wireless controller does not turn on or loses power, try the following solutions:
Solution 1: Replace the batteries
Insert a new set of AA alkaline batteries into the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, and then try to turn it on.
Solution 2: Try a different battery pack
If you have another Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, take the battery pack off that controller and attach it to your controller. Then try to turn your controller on.
If your controller works with the different battery pack, your original battery pack might be defective. If your controller is under warranty, you can order a replacement battery pack from Xbox Support . See the Assistance section at the bottom of this page for more information.
If your controller is out of warranty, you can buy a new battery pack from a retail store.
Solution 3: Try a rechargeable battery packIf you or a friend has an Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack, attach that battery pack to your controller and try to use your controller. If your controller works with the rechargeable battery pack attached, you can buy a new battery pack from a retail store or order a replacement battery pack from Xbox Support. See the Assistance section at the bottom of this page for more information.

No power to console. The power pack is good but the unit does not turn on


Maybe a connection problem where the power pack goes inside the xbox. If you have a friend close with one, try their power pack on your xbox and see if it turns on. If it does, the power pack you have is faulty. If it does not turn on, then you know there is something internal in your xbox causing this.

Orange light flashing in powercell pack.console not turning on. tried different powercell pack still not working .used power surge adapter


Hi,To troubleshoot this problem, try the following steps:

Examine the power indicator light that is located in the center of the Ring Of Light on your Xbox 360 console. If there is no power to your console, the indicator light is off and the fans are off.
* Press the power button. The power button and the power indicator light are located in the center of the Ring of Light on the front of your Xbox 360 console. If your Xbox is functioning correctly, the power will turn on.
* Press the eject button on your console disc drive. If your console turns on when you do this but does not start when you use the power button, there may be a problem with the power button or the console faceplate may not be attached correctly. Contact Xbox Customer Support for more help.

If the above step does not resolve the problem, examine the power cord where it connects to your console and to the power outlet. Disconnect and then reconnect the power cord at each end to make sure that you firmly connect the cord.

If this does not resolve the problem, see whether the power cord is plugged in to any device other than a typical power outlet. For example, the power cord may be attached to an extension cord. If this is the case, remove this device and then plug the power supply directly into a power outlet.

If the problem is not a connection problem, examine the light on the Xbox 360 Power Supply.
* A green light indicates that the power supply is functioning correctly. If the light is not green, contact Xbox Customer Support for more help.If these steps do not resolve the problem, your console needs service.
Thank you!

It will not turn on power supply light is red


Your power pack is the problem, turn it off and let it cool, clean out the vents and make sure it is well ventillated, then test again, if it is still red, you will need to buy a new power pack.
Make sure that you buy the correct one, look on the power pack to see if its a 203w or a 175w because the connection to the console is different.
Thumbs up if this helps.

Console switches itself off


If the power brick shows a red light, it means that it is not providing sufficient enough power to power the console. It is overheating and simply crashing. You will probably need to purchase or (if under warranty) get a new one.
