Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
Our x box 360 just stopped working and when we plg it in will not power up again is there a reset button for it.
If your XBox 360 is not turning on, you may wish to verify that the power adaptor is functioning correctly. The power adaptor should have a light somewhere on its casing that shows up green, red or orange when plugged in. Each of these colors is an indication of a different problem:
* Green indicates that power is being correctly supplied to the XBox 360. If the XBox 360 still does not turn on, you will need to contact Microsoft for repairs and support.
* Orange indicates that at least one connection is loose. Making sure that all of the cables attached to the XBox 360 are secure should resolve this type of problem, and allow your console to power on.
* Red indicates that the power adaptor has either overheated or needs to be replaced. If the light is out, this may also be an indicator that the power adaptor is defective, but it may just as easily be a sign that the outlet the XBox 360 was plugged into did not provide enough electricity to power the console.
Unfortunately, in order to reset the XBox 360 you will need power to be supplied to the console. If replacing the power adaptor or double-checking your connections does return power to the console, you may then reset it by performing a "power cycle" (turning the unit off, then back on roughly 10-15 seconds later).
Hope this helps you out.
