It may be a problem with the cord. I recommend you get a replacement cord. If it still does not work after that, you'll have to get the system looked at. Bring it back to the retailer. Don't forget your warranty. If the warranty did expire, then you'll have to buy a new one.

My x-box wont power up, it was okay til my son moved it for one room to another, the prower brick cord is yellow, so its gettin power< but the x-box itself will not power up, can someone help me


Unplug everything from the console. Make sure that the power cord from the brick to the back of the console is firmly connected to the brick. then make sure that the cord is firmly connected to the back of the 360. This cord sometimes appears to be completely inserted but will actually be slightly out of the socket. Make sure that the video cable from the back of the 360 is also firmly installed. Reset the Xbox 360 and the TV and see if it doesn't start up for you.

When i turn on my xbox i'm getting 3 flashing red lights what does this mean


it means your xbox is overheating, you can send it back as they extended the warranty on it for this common fault unless you have modified it, in which case look up ring of death on youtube.

How to setup xbox live


Hello there

No problem, in just a few steps you too will be online and ready to go.

Ethernet Cable

With your Xbox 360 turned off unplug the ethernet cable from the back of your Xbox.

Xbox 360 Power Cord

Next unplug the Xbox 360 power cord from the back of the Xbox 360.

Unplug ethernet cable and power cord from the modem. Wait for about 1 minute and then plug ethernet cable back into the modem.

Now you need to plug other end of the ethernet cable into the back of the Xbox 360.

Plug the modem power cord back into your modem , wait for lights to light up on your modem (this can take up to a minute).

The last step is to plug the Xbox power cord into the back of the Xbox, turn it on and you are ready to go.

Xbox 360 won't turn on


I had this problem. Make sure the pins in the USB ports (2 on the front and 1 on the back of the console) aren't bent and there's nothing obstructing them. I unbent some of the metal inside these ports, and voila! I have a working xbox.

Sounds like there is something wrong with the Xbox 360 power supply, try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet also unplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord. Give it a minute then reconnect it all back, also try it on another wall outlet without any extension cord at all.

If it's still red that suggests fault with your Xbox 360 power supply so will need to contact Xbox 360 customer support if its under warranty they should be able to sort it out for you. If out of warranty it might cost you for a new power supply!

Orange or Yellow Indicator Light

When the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow this means there is no problem with your console but the power supply can't supply it with power.

To remedy this problem, first try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. You'll also want to uplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord.

Wait for about five minutes and then reconnect everything. You might also want to try plugging it into another wall outlet without an extension cord.

If you are still getting an orange or yellow indicator light, then something is at fault with the Xbox 360 power supply. If this is the case, contact the Xbox 360 customer support to get a new one
