It you are not getting any error lights at all when you turn it on it is a power issue. What color lights are on the power supply when you plug it in (before powering the 360 on) and what color lights do you have after you try to power it on? Orange means the power supply is in stand-by mode or the plug is not correctly plugged into the system (when you try to power it on. Red means the power supply detected a fault, it is either too much current, to little current or overheated power supply. Plug the power unit directly into a wall outlet, no extension cords or power supplies. Has you son changed or played with the faceplate? Sometimes when you remove or change the faceplate they don't seat correctly and the power button on the faceplate does not contact the power switch under the faceplate. My guess would be an issue with the power supply so I would start there first.

Best,
Bob

Hello my xbox 360 wont read a disc it says open tray can u help me.


Your Xbox's disc drive is most likely broken. This happened to me about a month ago to a used xbox I had bought. You should call Xbox Live Support. They are very helpful.

Xbox 360 not working


Call 1-800-4MY-XBOX if you see red rings around the power light.  If you just bought it 7 months ago, it is still under warranty.  Do not use one of the custom shops who say they will fix the red ring errors as this will void your warranty with Microsoft.

Xbox 360 burning cds


Its laser burn. I have had this. Ask your son if he has tipped the xbox 360 with a game in it as that can cause this. If not the tabs that hold the game in place are broken causing the disc to 'wobble'. If you get the bottom right quadrant illuminate red then contact me personally at: sauldaedalus007@yahoo.co.uk

Red lights


Your Xbox has overheated, this has happened because of dust clogging up in the fan of your xbox. This cannot be fixed and you may need to get a new xbox. Thanks

Red circle of death


if you bought less than 12 months ago, you pay nothing when you notify microsoft calling 18004MYXBOX. An expensive way to deal with this is simply getting the xbox elite which never has this problem at all!
