The external power supply has detected a fault. The power supply has several built-in safeguards to help prevent damage to either the console or to the power supply itself. The power supply will turn itself off under the following conditions:
• When there is too much current
• When the voltage is too high
• When the temperature is too high
Under these conditions, the light on the power supply will turn from green to orange or to red. Or, the light will turn off. When the power supply light is green or orange when it is connected to the wall outlet, the power supply is functioning correctly.

To correct the problem you need to have the XBOX send for repair to correct the problem.

The power brick on my xbox 360 is red and is not overheating yet i smaell burning plastic from my xbox 360 console anyone have any tips?


A red light on the xbox 360 power brick usually indicates the Xbox 360 console has a short circuit. Here is how to be sure:

1. Try unplugging the power brick from the wall and from the xbox 360.
2. Wait about 30 seconds and plug the power brick into the wall power outlet.
3. Make sure the indicator light on the power brick is orange. ( If it's not orange then get yourself a new power brick and try again ).
4. Plug the power brick into the Xbox 360 console and try to power it on.
If your power brick turns red or you get an immediate three red ring error than you will need to have the console professionally repaired.
If your warranty with Microsoft has expired; the company I work for GATpro Repairs offers this service at a low flat rate and we pay for the return shipping.
Good Luck and I hope this has helped!

Xbox 360 elite has suddenly stopped working and doesnt light up


Hi,

check you have a light on the power Brick. Usually Orange On Standby.
Push power On Button, should turn green.
No Light At All Check Plugs Fuse.
Orange light On, but not turning on, or going to Green, power Up.
Suspect Faulty Power Supply Unit, Or Motherboard Fault.

My Xbox 360 won't turn on. When I plug the power cable into the wall, the orange light on the power brick lights up as normal, but if you plug the other end into the Xbox, the orange light starts blinking....


Sounds like a bad power supply, or on two occasions I have found that one of the USB ports had a bent pin which was shorted to the metal housing, which wouldn't let the unit power on. So check all of the USB ports

Xbox 360 has orange light on the power brick,no power to console?


Mine has an orange light and works fine. i think that's standby mode. it turns green as soon as the 360 powers up. try replacing the power cord that goes from the 360 back to the power block. It may be faulty.

Alright, lets fix this!
 Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow.
Usually when the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange it's on standby so there is no problem with your Xbox 360 console but the power supply can't supply it with power !

First you have to try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for a minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cords at all.
If it's still doing the same it will be definitely a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply.
So, in this case please contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill the Xbox 360 power supply.

Xbox 360 power supply light is red.
There is something wrong with the Xbox 360 power supply connection so try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console & unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord, wait for minute then reconnect it all back , also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cord at all.

You can also find replacement power cords many places online. See if you can get your hands on another cord and try that to see if its the current power cord.
