It is probably fried. I would have it repaired by some who knows how to fix it.

I plugged 110 volts xbox 360 into 220 volts outlet. and it's dead. what will i do?


Unless the item has internal fuse, it is burned up.
Look for product manual.
Many times, there is a glass fuse rated for unit voltage.
Replace fuse.
Each fuse has specific markings.

My Microsoft Xbox 360 Pro's power brick wont turn


You can try to Reset the AC adapter by following steps below.

1. Unplug the xbox 360 AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the system and from the wall outlet or power strip).

2. After you've waited a full 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter back in on both ends and check to see if the power light comes on.

If this doesn't work it's probably fried from the power surge.

I have a red light on the fourth player spot


Remove all the cables (composite/component, power, you know, anything that plugs into the console) and let it sit for a minute or so. Plug everything back in. If it still doesn't work, remove the hard drive and attempt to start the xbox. If it works, the problem is with your hard drive. If it doesn't work, the problem is with the xbox itself. Regardless, you'll have to contact xbox customer support to fix either of these problems.

We are residing in Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines. My 11-year old son accidentally plugged in our x-box 360 with kinect to a 220watts power outlet. My wife bought our x-box 360 last month 4th of...


Usually warranties will only cover normal failure of a device. Since the damage was caused by user error (plugging it into the 220V outlet), you will most likely have to pay for the repair. If that is the case, it doesn't matter how long you have had the device, Microsoft will always repair them if you pay for it.

In other words, the warranty will cover manufacturer hardware errors while it is valid. It is Microsoft's way of saying that their device will work at least this long without problems or we will fix it.

Just call up Microsoft's XBox support line and ask them where to send it for repairs.

Good luck getting it fixed!

When my xbox is plugged in ether by components or av all i get is mode not surported???


If you are using one of the older models of the Xbox 360, not the one of the "Slim" versions, make sure that the switch at the base of the Component/AV cable where it plugs into the Xbox is on the right correct output. If this doesn't work it is most likely a problem with the TV settings. Try using it on a different TV and see if that works.
If this doesn't work give me some more information and I'll try to help you out.

I Accisentally plugged My 110 Volt xbox 360 into a 220 volt outle


The reason for this is the power overwhelmed the circuit boards and burnt them out you may need to talk to someone up the Game shops or go to support.microsoft.com and see what other people think. even if microsoft tell you to DONT send it in for repair as it gets rattled in the post and rattling the console causes the Open Tray Error an extremley annoying error. hope this helps

Ah that sounds dangerous. Well technically everything can be fixed, but it would be easier and probably cheaper to just buy a new one.

Help.. My xbox has 3 reds lights


Hello.
This is a common problem from the Xbox 360.

The only way to fix this problem is to call Microsoft or email them. Its something to do with the hardware failure. Its over heated. Their is one way to fix it but temporary.
Its called the towel trick.

First, Unplug your xbox.
Then wrap it around with Heavy towels dont expose anything on the xbox 360. Cover everything.
Then plug in the xbox 360 while the towels are around it. After you do all that you wait 15 minutes. Then unwrap the towel from the xbox 360. It should be very hot. Let it cool down for 2 minutes then plug everything in and it should work.
But I hope this helps you.

Good luck!
