This means that there is a problem with your power supply, because it cannot put out enough power to be used by you Xbox 360. My suggestion it to buy a new power supply to replace the one you have now before anything might happen to your system.

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 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907588/ ) Your original xbox 360 console will not turn on

Power box light is blinking orange and sometime a steady red and console want come on.


Green Indicator Light:

The default indicator light is green. When the Xbox 360 power supply light is green it means that there are no problems with your power supply. However, if you are having problems and the power supply light is green, this means that the console is faulty and you need to contact Xbox 360 support.

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.

Red Indicator Light:

If the xbox 360 power supply light is red, then there is something wrong with the power supply connection. If this is the case, try the same solution as listed above of unplugging the power supply from the console, unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet and unplugging the 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 the indicator lights are still red, then there is a fault with the power supply. If this is the case, contact customer support about getting a new one.

No Indicator Light:

If the XBox 360 power supply light is not illuminating at all, this usually means that the Xbox power supply is not connected to the wall outlet correctly. On the other hand, it might also be a fault with the power supply or the power cord.

Either way, try the same solution as listed above for the red indicator lights. If you still don't see any lights illuminated after unplugging and then reconnecting everything, you'll need to contact customer support about getting a new power supply.

Green and Orange Indicator Light:

If the indicator light is flashing green and orange, this may mean that the console does not detect the AV Pack.

Disconnect and then reconnect the Xbox AV Pack. Make sure the connections are firmly connected. Turn your Xbox back on.

If the indicator light is still flashing green and orange, try another AV pack if one is available.

If the indicator light is still flashing green and orange, you'll need to contact Miscrosoft Customer support.

Flashing Orange Indicator Light:

If your Xbox console's indicator light flashes orange, this means the internal components have overheated and the Xbox has automatically shut down to prevent damage.

Turn off the console and let it cool for at least 10 minutes.

To prevent the Xbox from overheating in the future, make sure that it's not placed in a closed cabinet or on carpet. It's best to get the Xbox elevated off the ground where the PSU can have maximum heat release.

You'll also want to make sure the Xbox is not located near a heat source like the back side of a television, computer, monitor, or other electrical device.

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!

No power in console, but light is on ,on the power pack


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.

My xbox 360 will not turn on just getting the orange standby light on power adapter. what do i do to get it started up again?


If the power pack wil not go green - it sounds very much like it is the faulty component. Be careful when purchasing a new one that it fits the back of the xbox and has the right wattage - as they do vary.

Flashing Power Pack


Amber light is ok its when its red that is the problem, this might be your 360 that is faulty and until we have a closer look we would not be able to help further. You could try a different power supply from a mate, if the console works with a different power supply then you know its your supply thats faulty. but if the 360 still will not turn on then its the 360 at fault. Be carefull when using different power supplies as there are currently i think 4 different revisions and all have different power ratings. We could look at this for you www.fixmyconsole.co.uk
