Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Hello, I have an xbox 360 I bought in the united states. I took it with me to Antigua in the Carribbean islands where the voltage is 220v but I also have a 220/110 transformer. I plugged the tranformer into the wall, and when I connected my 360 in the transformer I heard a pop sound. I know something was burnt but im not sure what it is. Is it the 360 console or the power supply plug into it(the rectangular ac supply)? Thank You, Yazan

Is there an invincibility cheat for dead island?


Hello, Jeremy!

Unfortunately there are no cheat codes available for Dead Island on the Xbox 360. If you're interested in modding your save file then you can look up a program called Modio, and you can probably mod a little bit of cheating into your save such as giving you a bunch of money. Do your own research into the matter though, as modding isn't for everyone and it has some risks involved such as getting your save corrupted. Best of luck to you, Dead Island was kind of a doozy for me too. Thankfully I played on PC so I had cheats available ^_^

How do i fix the 1 ring


The red ring of death occurs when an Xbox 360 overheats and melts some of the internal solder that holds components together. This occurs because microsoft distributes them with low quality solder to save money. There are many people who can solve this problem in every state. I live in Rhode Island and there is one person who lives right down my street who does it. You can also send it back to microsoft if it's been less than 3 years since you bought it, because that will be covered under the warranty. -Good luck, and I hope this helps

Xbox 360 issues


Hi Demirtas,
I'll try and help you out...
1.  You could try the paper clip method but I wouldn't recommend it, if you are able to take your console to a near by games store they may open it for you using one of their power bricks...
2.  You'd have to run the correct voltage through the console or you could cause irreversible damage to the unit, you don't want to fry the motherboard!  You could pick up a pre-owned brick or use a voltage converter...
3. Yes you can use any power brick as long as the voltage is correct..
I hope this helps a bit, sorry if not.  Please rate!
Thank you!

Power brick red light


yeah you definitly need to have a uk to usa power converter. you guys run on 220V which would create way more current then needed which is why the power supply blew. I hope you didnt fry any internal parts in the 360. You need to get a power converter that gives you 120V.

XBOX 360 Power Adapter


What happened when you switched on the console? I think the 360 is supposed to run from 240v (at least that's what it says on the power brick) 220v may not be enough to power the console. You may have damaged the console but I'm unsure as I've never run into this situation before. You could try another power brick making sure you use the correct voltage. I'm sorry if this isn't much help but please rate if at all useful, thanks!
