Xbox 360 AC Adapter Problem

We have two Microsoft Xbox 360 AC Adapters. Both of them, when plugged in, only show the orange (standby) LED status. In using either one, the Xbox will not power up. What's up?

There could be two points of failure
the Power supply second the front power button.

Switch of the Xbox and disconnect the power cord ,press and hold the power button for 10 seconds.Reconnect the power cord , press the power button and try ejecting the cd tray , if they tray comes out , this means the powersupply is OK , if not then there could be an issue with the power supply.

let me know if additional help is required, coz we might need to open the xbox to find out the the failing part

    test the ac adapters in another xbox? does your friend have one?

    if they work in your friends xbox then, it seems to be a hardware problem with the xbox, contact your dealer or microsoft for repairs.

    if you need more assistance let me know. I'm here to help.

The light is flashing orange on adapter and no power to system when turned on


It is possible that there is some foreign particles inside one of the connectors. Since the power supply does come apart and also disconnects from the unit, you can try to clean it to see if it will sort out your problem. Here's what to try:

1. Disconnect the AC adapter from the wall and the console. Let it rest for a few hours so that you do not electrocute yourself.

2. Disconnect the wall power cord from the AC adapter brick. Check the connections on both ends to see if it needs to be cleaned.

3. Clean any ends of the adapter with alcohol solution (isopropyl, or "rubbing" alcohol). Make sure the connection to the console is clean as well. Allow to dry.

4. Reconnect all necessary parts and try your console again.

If that does not work, there could be another problem with power flow to the AC adapter or a problem with the adapter itself.

360 won't power up power supply good is there a fuse


They dont have a fuse in side them , it could be dry solder joints on the main pcb where the power plug goes into the xbox, make sure you try your power supply on another xbox as well as your xbox on another power supply. Also check the led on the power supply is green when its running, if the light is orange or red(whislt running, the light will be orange when in standby) .If your led on the power supply is red , you have a faulty power supply. Good Luck.

It is the power brick. If you are under warranty you can have microsoft send you a new one for free, otherwise a new powerbrick is around 80 dollars.

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.

Xbox 360 red lights power supply light stays yellow


you have to disconnect and reconnect the power cables to the 360. Orange/yellow light means that your power supply is on a standby mode and the 360 is not getting enough power/electricity inside
