Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Hey guys, I've had my XBOX Elite for well over half a year now, recently I've had one or two freezings when I play Oblivion but I put that down to a disk scratch, as it didn't do it with other games. However just today, I've moved the console to the TV downstairs and it won't start. The power LED on the brick is flashing orange, but when disconnected from the console (and not the plug socket) it shows a solid orange. I'm not sure if this is connected to the RROD purely because I have been lucky enough never to have seen them.
I'm not sure what to do, I brought the 360 via GAME.co.uk, but I can't find the warrenty agreement (long story, hotmail servers down) do I take it up with them, or with Microsoft?
Hmmmm you should first ask microsoft what the total cost or something would be. then go to the game.co.uk people

The power supply can turn itself off when there is too much current, too much voltage, or too high a temperature. Under these conditions, the light on the power supply will turn from green to orange or to red. Or, the light will turn off. When the power supply light is green, the power supply is working correctly.
To help the power supply work correctly, always try to use the following best practices:
