Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I need your help, my son is freeking out because his 2 month old xbox 360 just won't even turn on. The orange lihgt on the black power box thing is on, but the system won't do anything at all! What should I do?? Why are there so many problems with these consoles, and why isn't microsoft replacing them or fixing them for free??? Thanks.
Yo i tried everything and it turned out to be what one dude on her said about the usb ....if u look close in the usb port ...ther is 4 things sticking out ..in one port they were all straight ...in the other port they were crushed up against the wall so i took a knife and smashed them back down away from the wall make sure they are pointed down AWAY from the walll i cant plug a controller in that port but i can the other port.....soooooooooooooooooo it dont matter and bammmmmmmmmmmmm it came on i started **** in front of everyone

Most likely you have had a short in the box that box is a surge protector but i think you got to replace them if something like that happens the light is supposed to be a lighter color yellow witrh a little tint of orange

I have only 2 plug ins on one wall and my t.v. and stuff is on this other side so I use like 2 small extension cords that have like 3 plug ins on them and one of them must have been bad because my xbox randomly shut off last night and I was to tired to fix it and I plugged and un plugged it a lot and it would not turn on but I changed one of the outlets and it worked so if you use those try switching plug ins.

SOURCE: my xbox 360 won't turn on!!!
That means that the Power box is waiting for the console to be connected. if it does not work again then you can call xbox support to check the warranty of your xbox 360 then send it for repair.
I hope that will help you.
