You have to Call 1-800-4my-xbox.
Then tell them what happened, you will have to mail it out with the Console, and the plugs.

They will send u a brand new console.
Hope this Helped.

I Have a COBY 50i inch, We had a thunder storm wiped out my cable boxes & I think it wipe out my TV. It wont even turn on. Do you think its fried


Fault to the main power supply regulator section. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

My xbox360 Elite was wont even turn on...???


Hi Bruce,

This is something well out of our pay grade-- my guess is that the electrical storm fried your hardware and completely ruined the machine.

Your best bet at getting a replacement would be to contact Microsoft directly and explain the situation to them. You can do this by clicking here.

Had a lightning storm,now brand new aircon wont restart,remote is ok


The electrical storm may have caused a power surge and burned out the circuit board. Especially, if the power went out briefly and then came right back on. Most manufacturers recommend turning the unit OFF during a power outage/electrical storm.

Hope this helps you.

We had a storm and now the wii will not even turn on.


Was the Wii running while the storm was going on? Was it a lightning storm? If the answer is yes to eaither one of these then most likely there was a power surge and the power supply and / or motherboard has been damaged

Xbox wont turn on after storm


You had a power surge, I recommend you invest in a surge protector power strip. Your 360 may be fried the best thing to do is have it fixed professionally which will cost you. It would probably be cheaper to get a new one unless you have a warranty.

Monitor wont come out of standby


You got two outlooks, a fried motherboard or a fried component. If you have integrated graphics then its probably your motherboard, if you have your own, separate graphics card installed then it could have to do with your graphics card.

Google is your friend. It might not be damaged hardware, just some bug.
