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!

Power adapter for xbox360 is flashing orange


When the power adapter flashes orange, it usually means your console/adapter is only getting half the power it should be getting.
Check all your plugs and make sure everything is plugged in correctly.

If your console isn't turning on, contact Microsoft suppport or buy a new power adapter. If it is turning on, there is no need to do anything.

After about fifteen minuetsof playing it turns it self off it also feels warm to the touch


Solid green or solid orange light: Your power supply is working.

Flashing orange, solid red, or no light: Your power supply may need to be replaced. Try the following solutions:
  1. Try plugging your console's power supply into a different electrical outlet. Do not use a surge protector.
  2. If the power supply light is solid red or flashing orange, unplug the power supply and let it cool for 30 minutes. Then, plug the power supply back into the outlet.
There is no crack or damage done to it right?
Also try plugging it into the wall dirteclty no surge or power strip and let it lay flat

My wii has no power then like no light on at all to indicate that it's on


Wii Console Won't Turn On, and Has No Power Light
Situation:

The Wii console won't power on, and the Power LED is unlit
The console powers on, but shuts off after a few seconds/minutes
Attaching an accessory to the console turns the power off

What To Do:

Check any accessories attached directly to the console to make sure that it is licensed and undamaged. Unlicensed or damaged accessories shouldn't be used with the console.
Try using a different wall outlet, or plug a different device into the outlet to make sure the outlet is providing power.
Perform an AC Adapter Reset. (How To)
 

Situation Not Resolved:

If the system still won't power on, the system and AC adapter will need to be repaired. To start the repair process, click here.

Xbox pack light is red not orange


Hi there, This can be a result of a few things that have happened. There may have been a power surge and your power supply switched to safety mode to prevent damage to your xbox. It also might just have overheated, in which case just let it cool down in a well ventilated area for a couple of hrs and try it again. You can also try just plugging into a different power source like a mains supply instead of extension lead if you had it plugged into one. If using a different mains or cooling down don't work then I'm afraid you will need to replace your power supply. Hope this helps

After not using my wii for about a month i went to play it the other day and it wouldn't turn on. The indicator light on the power button is off, not green, red, or orange. All the cords are connected, I...


Unplug it from the wall outlet (NOT from the Wii). Leave it unplugged for a good 5 to 10 minutes. The AC adapter needs to be reset (more on that below).

Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii.

This is a common problem with the Wii. As I said, I'm very surprised Nintnedo didn't cover this in the owners manual FAQ, considering it happens almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc.

Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector, this happens. Power comes back on, but the Wii appears dead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators won't light. If there was a power surge, or the power went out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter,not the Wii itself.

There is a circuit inside the AC adapter that needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

Wii won't turn on!!!


Try resetting the AC adapter.
  1. Unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, SD Cards, memory cards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, hookup cables, the AC Adapter, and Sensor Bar) from the outlet and Wii.
  2. Let the system rest for about 90 seconds. While you're waiting, check to see that controller cords, AC Adapter, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables are not frayed or have exposed wires (this can cause the system to shut off); if so, you should replace those parts.
  3. After the 90 seconds, Plug the AC Adapter into the system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. Check to see if the power light on the Power button comes on.

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

AC Adapter has a blinking orange light...


Try moving everything to a different room on a different electrical circuit (as in electric panel outside your house). You might have too much load on that circuit for the plugs in that room. You could try unplugging everything except tv and xbox too.
