Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Xbox 360 I've had the 4 flashing lights awhile ago and then i just unplugged everything and left it alone. I plugged everything back in and now the red flashing lights are gone, but now everytime I turn on my xbox it either freezes during the dashboard or in the middle of the game.

My new afterglow controller won't sync but turns on, it is wired.


If by not syncing you mean it flashes the whole ring when you plug the controller in the USB and won't identify? If so I think the problem may be that you have other USB devices plugged in at the same time. Unplug all the USB and plug the controller in by itself. I've had issues with this for awhile myself. I had a bluetooth and another wireless kb/mouse. So I unplugged everything tried it by itself and it seems to identify perfectly.

Conclusion: Unplug all the USB devices and plug the Afterglow 360 controller by itself and that should solve the problem. =)

I got a red light on my power cord, what do I?super


A red light on a power cord for the Xbox 360 usually means it has overheated. Try unplugging the power supply and leaving it alone for awhile to cool down. Make sure to not cover the power supply when you do reconnect it to keep it well ventilated. If this doesn't work you may have to replace the faulty device.

I have a Yellow Led light on power bar, xbox will not turn on

Orange or Yellow Indicator Light


When the Xbox 360 power supply light is orange or yellow this means there is no problem with your console but the power supply can't supply it with power.

To remedy this problem, first try unplugging the Xbox 360 power supply from the console and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. You'll also want to uplug the Xbox 360 power supply from the power cord.

Wait for about five minutes and then reconnect everything. You might also want to try plugging it into another wall outlet without an extension cord.

If you are still getting an orange or yellow indicator light, then something is at fault with the Xbox 360 power supply. If this is the case, contact the Xbox 360 customer support to get a new one.

Hope this helps you out! Don't forget to rate me :)

The power button on my 360 puts the one green light on the right instead of the left


I have a very similar problem I had a few days ago. But what I did was I shut down the Xbox 360 console completely. Then I unplugged the power cord from the Xbox 360 console and the wall outlet, and then I disconnected the batteries from the wireless controller. let it sit for about 5 min. Then plugged everything back in, and finally I hit the the wireless connecting buttons on both the Xbox 360 console itself, and the wireless controller(s).

And from then on, I have had no problems, what so ever since I did that (above).

4 Flashing red lights


unplug all cables from the back of the XBOX and then plug them back on (making sure that they are connected) and then power up the 360.

from past experiences, I've only seen the 4 flashing red lights if the AV connection is not secure.

Good luck
