Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Black box problems.

Ok, my xbox has never encountered problems, untill I moved it to another room. I didnt figure it would make much of a difference but It may of, but I dont see how because there's no major differences between them. The black box which connects to the power and to the xbox, that has a large label on it saying something like 6 volts, is not working properly. The plug seems to be disconnecting a lot of the time or something as the light which should normally be yellow, keeps switching from yellow to black whenever I put it on a surface and move it. It worked once in the morning, but it was still being a bit funny, and switching of when i moved it just a little. Now its just impossible to get  started of anything. Any help, I would be extremely greatful, wanna get started playing A.S.A.P

Can a circuit breaker fail? There is no power in my daughters room, but the circuit breaker seems to be fine. It doesn't reset or fix the problem.


Make sure to click breaker completely over to one side and then click all the way back to reset.

Yes, breakers go bad.

You can check your breaker in a simple way.

Turn main breaker OFF.
Mark daughter's breaker.
Take cover off breaker box.
The main breaker will still have power on the lugs where big wires connect.
Rest of box will have no power.
Notice that each 120 volt breaker has a wire connected to end of breaker.
Use screwdriver and tighten this wire.
If screw is already tight, then loosen screw and pull wire out, and move wire to another breaker marked with same amperage. For example if daughter's breaker is 20, then move wire to another 20. Now there will be two wires connected to that breaker.
Turn power ON and see if daughter's room is restored.
This set up will work fine until you have time to replace breaker with same brand as marked on breaker box, usually available at home center (if available).

If power is not restored by moving wire, then there is a loose wire inside a junction box located in daughter's room.
Test each receptacle in room to confirm that nothing on that circuit has power.
If some receptacles have power, start opening other receptacle boxes looking for loose wire, especially at the quick-connects where wires stab into back of receptacle device.
If whole circuit is off, then to isolate location of loose wire, start at the ceiling box, and see if there is a loose black or white wire. Most electricians run wire from breaker to the ceiling box, and then other wires spread out from there and go box to box until each box has a black and white wire that connects back to original breaker.

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.

Try moving everything to a different room on a different electrical circuit (as in electric panel outside your house). You might have too much load on that circuit for the plugs in that room. You could try unplugging everything except tv and xbox too.
