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.

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 xbox wont turn on i just got it back because i got the 3 rings of death i plugged everything in and it wont turn on i am extremly pissed what the hell is wrong with it?

Is the light on your power brick red, if so this is your problem, its overheating, if cooling it down does'nt work try another power brick.

If the power brick light is orange, but no power at all to the console, look into the usb ports on the front of the console, its easier if you remove the faceplate,make sure there is no damage or bent pins touching, this will short your console so it wont switch on.
Remember thumbs up if this works.

Won't turn om

Check that the Power Brick that comes with the XBOX 360 has a yellow/orange light. If it is red, then you may be using the wrong voltage or the is a fault in your power supply.
If it is orange, check it is plugged into the back of your Xbox 360. If not, then plug it in at the bottom of the back of your Xbox 360.
If its plugged in and still doesn't turn on, then call Microsoft (US Number is 1-800-4MY-XBOX) and tell them the problem.
Thanks, Venturer
