It's very possible that your power pack went bad. Try a new one and if that wont work then there is something internally wrong.

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.

My xbox wont start up it flashes like it wants to kick on but doesnt. even ac adaptor wont flash green and stay on

Check power brick. The power cord could be loose. If your ac adapter is red unplug it from the wall, the surge protector and re plug it back in. If problem persist call ms and ask for replacement

When my Xbox 360 is off, the light on the AC Adapter is orange, but when I hit the power button to turn the Xbox 360 on, the light on the AC Adapter turned red.

HI you did not mention is you are able to use the unit even tho the led turns red. If not then the unit is drawing to much current and the power supply is shutting down. Or the power supply is faulty, If you can and know someone with a 360 system try to borrow theirs and see which part of the system is faulty if you know his is good and the same thing happens, or take yours to his house and try, but if same results then the 360 is at fault.

Plugged in powerless 360

The power adapter would have gone green when it was working normlly, its what it does, you need to replace the power adapter 'brick' as it is either faulty or was over heated due to travel. Good luck.

Dell D620 power problem


Sorry to hear that you are having trouble with the AC Adapter on your D620. Now I have not heard the part where the light goes out when the AC Adapter is plugged in before. This maybe a sign of a short some where in he system. So this could be a problem wih the AC Adapter or the motherboard. Hopefully it is just with the AC Adapter. If you know someone with a D620 you may want to try there adapter on your system to see what happens. Also you can try the generic ones as well but you need to make sure that it will work with the D620. Mostly the issue is with the AC Adpater going bad but there is a chance that it could be the motherboard.

Now the D620's have not been out for very long so you might want to contact Dell's support to see if your system is still under warranty. If it is they will send you an AC Adapter and have the motherboard fixed if needed.

If you have any more question and/or problems let me know.

IBM T30 - power issues

You might try cleaning the battery compartment. Makeing sure there are no damaged pins. Often times even a single messed up pin will cause this. Also this is a very good indication of adaptor failure. If you haven't allready I suggest getting another ac adapter specific to you machine. Even a substitute will casue the same issue you are now experianceing.
