Red light on xbox 360 adaptor


Under the power brick there is a description for what the lights mean.
Red means there is a fault with the power brick.

Here is a great guide on what to do:
http://www.thetechedition.com/xbox-360-repair-meaning-of-the-red-power-supply-light/

To run you through:
If the power brick is too hot, let i coll down then try again.

If the plug is connected into an extension cord, surge protector etc.. it might be reducing the voltage so plug it into its own socket.

If those dont work you might need to get a replacement adaptor failing that it could be a problem with the console itself but unlikely.

Trying to connect the kinect


First off make sure you have at least 190 mb of space in your HDD before trying to set up your kinect.
Setup:
Step 1: Make sure your xbox 360 is properly connected to the television with the AV cables and power cable to an outlet.
Step 2: Place sensor under or on top of your television on a stable flat surface.
Step 3: Depending on your xbox the sensor has two different connections. If you have the new slim xbox 360 then you do not need the extra add on connection you simply connect it to a special port for it on the back of your xbox 360 slim. If it is a older version xbox then you will need the extra power adaptor since it will not work without it.(Cable with power connection)
Step 4; (ONLY FOR OLDER VERSION XBOX 360): If you have a wireless connection adaptor unplug it from the usb port in the back of the xbox 360 and connect the kinect sensor's power adaptor into the port you took the wireless connection adaptor off of. There should be a special cable that will act as an extension for the wireless connection adaptor you unplugged this is so you can connect it directly to the usb ports in the front of the xbox 360. Then plug the end with the power outlet connector of the kinect sensor power adaptor into the wall socket.
Step 5: Turn on the xbox 360 and the kinect sensor should move up and down to adjust.
Step 6: Put kinect game in and it will guide you through kinect settings and your on your way to start playing! Have Fun!

My Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter stopped working.


Shut off your console and unplug everything.

Connect the adapter then connect the console back together...Turn on console......Go to network configuration...Make sure u are connecting the adapter from the back!

If you are not able to achieve a connection for several attempts this means your should check warranty status for the adapter also.........If you unplugged it while the console was one you could of shocked the cable an blew the fuse.......Normally when u detach any components with a usb port u should alway make sure every thing is shut off before so.

I just bought an xbox i got wireless adaptor, how come i cant sign up for online it says ''cant cannect xbox live select test connection to trouble shoot your connection''


(These instructions are vague because they are from memory, so sorry if they are not very clear)
Go to Console Settings, then go to Network Settings, then click A on the first thing that comes up, continue clicking A until it returns you to network settings. Then try to connect to Xbox Live again, if you still can't connect, then the xbox 360 console is not close enough to your internet source, or you don't have a wireless internet connection.

Hope this helps!

X box 360


Hey tjames2ya,

If your XBox 360 is not turning on, you may wish to verify that the power adaptor is functioning correctly. The power adaptor should have a light somewhere on its casing that shows up green, red or orange when plugged in. Each of these colors is an indication of a different problem:

* Green indicates that power is being correctly supplied to the XBox 360. If the XBox 360 still does not turn on, you will need to contact Microsoft for repairs and support.

* Orange indicates that at least one connection is loose. Making sure that all of the cables attached to the XBox 360 are secure should resolve this type of problem, and allow your console to power on.

* Red indicates that the power adaptor has either overheated or needs to be replaced. If the light is out, this may also be an indicator that the power adaptor is defective, but it may just as easily be a sign that the outlet the XBox 360 was plugged into did not provide enough electricity to power the console.

Unfortunately, in order to reset the XBox 360 you will need power to be supplied to the console. If replacing the power adaptor or double-checking your connections does return power to the console, you may then reset it by performing a "power cycle" (turning the unit off, then back on roughly 10-15 seconds later).

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
