Take a flashlight and check inside the two USB ports plugs .
Some times the plastic contact guard breaks allowing some
of the contacts to touch . if that's the case simply straighten
them out with tweezers. The second possibility is the power
brick may be failing, also watch the orange light very carefully
when you plug it in to the console ,if it dims slightly then
it's a short in the USB ports as mentioned above.


If you have any questions feel free to ask.

My xbox power box is displaying the amber light and the xbox wont switch on is this related??


An orange light is illuminated on the power supply for one of two reasons. Either the console is turned off or the power supply is disconnected from the console. The orange light means that the power supply is in standby.
Even if the console is turned off, the power supply light may still be illuminated orange. This can occur if the power supply cord is not fully inserted into the power socket of the console.

My xbox 360 had gotten the red ring, so I heated the mother board with a heat gun and then replace the thermal paste, now the power brick is orange/yellow when plugged in, turn on the box it goes green for...


We STRONGLY recommend you not to use heat gun as it can heat other components, when your system have 3 red light and no fan are spinning it means that one of your fuses has gotten damaged and no power can go through your GPU chip.
Thanks

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.

Three red lights flashing


Well mainly it is down to overheating, and as you play your games the motherboard flexes ever so slightly and the soldering snaps off and that is when you are left with the red lights of doom.

Step 1: Turn on the console, and check the light on your power supply
The power supply light is located on the black box that is in the middle of your power cord.

Step 2: If power supply light is green, try this solution

Step 3: If the power supply light is red, is orange when the console is powered on, or is not lit, try these solutions:

Solution A: Unplug your console, plug it into a different outlet in a different room, and then turn it on
This will help determine whether the problem is with your power supply, your power outlet, or your console.

Solution B: Request a replacement power supply
If the power supply light is still red, orange, or not lit, the problem is with your power supply. Contact Xbox Support to obtain a replacement power supply.

Good luck!

My console plays my games, but there is a full red ring? what does this mean?


OUCH! You have the red ring of death! Did you by chance have xbox on it's side for a long period of time instead of flat? If so, that's why. They say there made to do this, just like the old ps2's, It a load of ****. The laser lens circuit will need to be replaced. If you didn't have it on it's side, then you have a bad graphics chip, or cold solder joints, or the motherboard is shot.

Orange LED indicator on the "Power Ring"


From the sounds of things you have a bad RF Board. This is the board that controls the syncing of your controllers, as well as your ring of light. If there is someone in your area that fixes the RROD they may be able to replace your RF board as well. I'd be happy to do it, but shipping would be almost the same cost as the repair. Contact me at Jordan@jordanselectronics.com for more info.

My xbox 360 won't turn on!!!


When it says ORANGE on the Power box, that means that the Power box is waiting for the console to be connected, You might wanna try another power box if you have a friend or relative nearby, and if another power box does the same thing, then you can call xbox support to check the warranty of your xbox 360, then send it in for repairs

FYI:
The light on the power supply should be GREEN in order for the console to turn on

Is your power box light orange or green. It should be orange if turned off and go green when turned on if it is red your power supply box is no good you can unplug it leave off for 10 minutes or so then try again if light doesn't go orange you won't be able to turn it on. I had the same problem and it was power supply box with red light got new one works great.
