Wii will not turn on


Hi Ron,

Have you tried using a known Good power Adapter and see if the unit will power ON?

-First remove the power adapter, then press and hold down the power button for at least 10-15 seconds just to drain any power left in the main board.
-after doing the power drain, reconnect the power adapter and power the system ON again see if it will power.
- if the unit will still not power using a Known good power adapter and you also did the power drain then the problem is most likely to be the power port where the adapter connects to is not relaying any power to the main board of the unit or the main board of the unit is not distributing power properly on the machine to have it power ON. wither way you will have to go and have the unit checked if that is the case.

NOTE: try a known Good Power Adapter first, if that fails you can disregard the other Troubleshooting steps and go have the unit checked to avoid any fuzz...

I hope this helps,

My power supply is blinking orange when i put it in the xbox 360 what do this mean.


Hello.An orange light is illuminated on the power supply for one of the following reasons:

a The console is turned off.
b The power supply is disconnected from the console.
c The power supply cord is not fully inserted into the power socket of the console.
d The power supply is faulty.
e The console is faulty. (The console might be faulty if it does not turn on when the power supply light is orange.)


The power supply has several built-in safeguards to help prevent damage to either your Xbox 360 console or the power supply itself. The power supply will automatically turn off if either the current flow, the voltage, or the temperature is too high. When the power supply turns off for any of these reasons, the light on the power supply will turn from green (normal) to orange or to red, or the light will turn off. When the power supply light is green, the power supply is working correctly. What you are experiencing is an over heating issue, that may have damaged the supply.

With that being said, i would try to reset the supply by disconnecting the unit form the console, and unplugging the power supply unit form the wall socket for 5 minutes. Once the 5 minutes have passed, reconnect the unit to the console, and plug the power supply into the wall socket. If the console dose not power up, and the supply unit is still showing an orange illuminated operating light, this will confirm that the power supply unit will need to be replaced. Contact Microsoft for the correct replacement parts needed(power supply unit)


TIPS FOR PREVENTING OVERHEATING ISSUES

1 Do not block any ventilation openings in the power supply.
2 Do not put the power supply on a bed, on a sofa, or on any other soft surface that might block ventilation openings.
3 Do not put the power supply in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.
4 Do not put the power supply on a stereo speaker, an amplifier, or a heat source such as a radiator or a heat register.
5 Do not use an unlicensed accessory, such as a replacement power supply that was not manufactured by Microsoft, or any accessory that plugs in between the Xbox 360 console and the power supply.
6 Plug the power supply directly into a working wall outlet. You may have problems with the power supply if you use an extension cord or a power strip if the extension cord or the power strip is faulty or cannot supply the required power to the console.
7 If you are not sure about the reliability of an AC power outlet, power circuit, or power cabling, do not use it. Contact an electrician.

The ac adapter red light stays on and the counsole will not work


This problem occurs when the external power supply has detected a fault. The power supply has several built-in safeguards to help prevent damage to either the console or to the power supply. The power supply will turn off if one of the following conditions is true:

• There is too much current.
• The voltage is too high.
• The temperature of the power supply is too high.

When any of these conditions are true, the light on the power supply turns red. Here are some steps that you can use to try to fix the problem.

Step 1: Make sure that the power supply is cool

The red light might indicate that the power supply is too hot or that it has overheated. Follow these steps if the power supply light is red:

1. Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned off.
2. Disconnect your Xbox 360 Power Supply from your Xbox 360 console and from the wall outlet.
3. Let the power supply cool for two hours in a well-ventilated space. Do not connect the Xbox 360 power supply to the console or to the wall outlet during this time.
4. After the power supply has cooled for two hours, reconnect the Xbox 360 Power Supply to the console and to the wall outlet.
If cooling the power supply does not resolve the problem or if the problem persists, use the steps in the next section.

Step 2: Make sure that the power supply is plugged in correctly

Make sure that the power supply is directly plugged into a working wall outlet. You may have problems with the power supply if you use an extension cord or a power strip if the extension cord or the power strip is faulty or cannot supply the required power to the console.

If the power supply is still not working as expected, use the steps in the next section.

Step 3: Plug the power supply into a different wall outlet

To eliminate the possibility that the wall outlet you are using is faulty or that there is a blown fuse, plug the power cord into a different wall outlet in a different area of your place of residence.

If this does not resolve the problem, use the steps in the next section.

Step 4: Try another Xbox 360 Power Cord and Xbox 360 Power Supply

If you have a different Xbox 360 Power Cord and Xbox 360 Power Supply, try to use them to test the console. If the console turns on when you use a different power cord and power supply, you need to replace the faulty power cord and power supply. If the console does not turn on, the issue may be with the console itself.

If this does not resolve the problem, use the steps in the next section.

Step 5: Obtain a replacement Xbox 360 Power Supply

If the steps in this article did not resolve the issue and the Xbox 360 Power Supply light continues illuminate red, you need to obtain a replacement power supply.

Power supply light is red


This issue occurs when the external power supply has detected a fault. The power supply has several built-in safeguards to help prevent damage to either the console or to the power supply itself. The power supply will turn itself off if one of the following conditions is true:
  • There is too much current
  • The voltage is too high
  • The temperature of the power supply is too high
Under these conditions, the light on the power supply turns red.

Step 1: Make sure that the power supply is cool loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); The red light may indicate that the power supply is too hot or that it has already overheated. If the power supply light is red, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that your Xbox 360 console is turned off.

If it's still doing the same it will be definitely a fault with the Xbox 360 power supply.
So, in this case please contact Xbox 360 customer support to fulfill the Xbox 360 power supply.
