    Has the light on the power brick turned red?

    Basically after leaving the power brick unplugged for several MINUTES (not seconds) give it a good 15 to 20 minutes and disconnecting it from the xbox when you plug it in it should be red meaning it is not running any power through it.

    When you connect the xbox it should turn orange indicating the xbox is drawing standby power

    IF this is the case what colour does the light turn on the power brick when you press the power button on the console. Any lights or sounds made by the console?

    Or do you get absolutely no response?

    I need as detailed answers as possible.

    When you press the power button does the light on the brick change colour?

    Try unplugging everything (including the brick from the console the hard drive the av cable and the brick from the wall)

    Leave unplugged for a few minutes

    Try reconnecting everything but the Hard drive if you have one.

    What happens? any cahnge in lights on the console or the power brick

Why wont my xbox 360 stayed powered on the light on the power brick is orange what does that mean

You might need a new charging brick. Make sure you get the right one, as many are different. The "Brick" is actually the Ac/Dc converter. The reason the PS3's don't have them, is because they are built INSIDE. I wish Xbox would figure that out. ^^ Good luck.

When i plug the xbox up the light on the plug adaptot turns orange and the xbox wont turn on

This is usually caused by the power brick over-heating. Try cleaning out the vents on the power brick. There are little holes on the ends and overtime they become clogged with dust and lint. If that doesn't work then you'll have to replace the power brick.

My powerbrick lightis orange but my xbox360 wont turn on

If the light on the power brick stays orange after turning the console on it means the brick is not properly functioning. You can attempt to clean the power brick with a can of air. Also make sure it has ventilation and is not sitting on carpet. This can cause the power brick itself to overheat and cause issues with it and the console itself. Also make sure your 360 is not plugger into a surge suppressor as this can cause issue due to double protection.
If possible, test the power brick on a different console, and test the console on a different power brick. This will narrow down your problem area.
