Sounds like an electrical short in xboxs usb port.
check the brick if it has a red light you need a new brick. if not, try unplug the controller from the console and remove the faceplate and try turn it on.
sorry if i cant be more help.

    the power supply the big square you plug into the socket.

    the faceplate is the thing on the front of the xbox check youtube on how to remove it.


  • Alexander333 Jul 10, 2008

    get a screwdriver and press the little button on the inside. it near the top of the hole just before it hits the plastic.


  • Alexander333 Jul 10, 2008

    press the little circle thats in the middle of that square other wise you may need a replacement rf board which requires opening the console voiding your waranty. you can alos try turning on the console via wireless controller by holding down the big x until the controller flashes

Wen i want to play a game on line that i have is ascking to do the update, the update starts then stops freezing what should i do

Put your PS3 in Standby Mode. The first thing your going to want to know is your model number. It can be found on the back panel of the PS3 on the serial number label, and it will begin with CECH. Example - Serial: XXXXXXXXXXXX-CECHXXX -

For models: CECHA01, BO1, E01, E01MG, G01, H01, H01MG, K01, LO1, AND P01, it will have a power switch on the back. Flip it off then back on and you will have a solid red indicator light on the front.

For models: CECH-2001A and 2001B, press the power button on the front until the indicator light turns red. If all else fails unplug the power cord and plug it back

Time to enter Safe Mode. Press and hold your finger over the power button on the front until you hear three beeps and the indicator light goes back to red. Then release the button. (The second you touch it you will hear a beep, that's the first beep. Five seconds later a second beep, another five seconds the third and final beep will sound then the indicator light will return to red.)

Press and hold your finger over the power button again until you hear a quick double beep. The release the button. (The second you touch it you will hear a beep, that's the first beep. Five seconds later a second beep, another five seconds you will hear the double beep.)

You will then see this screen. "Connect the controller with the USB cable, then press the PS button".

Connect the USB cable to the USB port on the front of your PS3 and the top of your game controller, (between the left and right bumpers). Then Press the PS button in the center of the controller.


Select option number 5. (Restore PS3 System). Then select yes to perform step. You will then see this screen. "The hard disk's file system is corrupt and will be restored.

The PS3 will then restart. You will see many different languages, all that is is saying is, "Connect the controller with the USB cable, then press the PS button". Press the PS button and set your settings when it finishes it will start up and its fixed!

Trouble playing ea sports games online

Perhaps you are no longer allowed on EA's server due to possible conduct.
Remember this, XBOX & EA have very different server networks.EA's server ( needed to play online) are monitored very closely due to conduct.This means if u r reported or r monitored, they can & will kick you off, sometimes for a short time, but based upon offense, a VERY long time if not 4ever my friend.

I would suggest just based on a few lines of comment I have read, you might want to contact EA which are based in California.
Ask them about a possible sever reset on you account name.

If you be calm about it you might just get lucky for the reset, this is only
way of which I have heard to reconnect to there.

try the wireless connection button (little white button on the back of the controller by the infared eye) and you might have to push the one on the console to. I have had that problem and have to press the one on the controller and another time had to press both. Hope this helps.
