i have a major problem!! I was playing halo2 over xboxlive. The game finished and took me to the scoreboard. I then turned off my xbox360. When i truned it on again the ring around a power button was red and it wouldn't start up! Im just gonna leave it now. My power adapter thingy always has an orange light so i assume thats normal. JUst tell me why she is dieing!!! Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

Ok i just unplugged al my cables and put em in again. When i first tried it again it turned on. But then the green ring dimmed and it turned off. The second time i tried it stayed on and it is now working. I think it may be a power suuply fault. I'm keeping an eye on it but any ideas wud put me at ease. Confused

Where abouts is your console and power adapter? It sounds like one or the other is overheating. They need to be kept cool, so make sure they aren't wedged in a corner or whatever.

Do you mean it has an amber light on all the time? Mine has a green light when it's on and amber when it's off. Not sure if that's what you meant, but I thought I'd check.

Red light: When you unplug it or it needs more power( on the power block)
Orange: Xbox is in standby, Not on but plugged with enought power to start
green: Xbox is opened with enought power to run


Now the LED Circle on front: green= Ok
Red= Not ok

The main problem i've got with it is that Your video cable isnt plugged properly. Either on its back either on front. dont fear to push it hard..

Hmm, another thing you can do is make certain that the Xbox system is in a completely open area (I have mine on the floor since it was getting too hot even in a three foot space slot), and put it on a flat, hard surface.

I took four plastic bottle caps and put them underneath the system at the rubber stoppers, gives it some more ground clearance. Only do this if you have the system laid flat, don't do it while vertical.

Keep us posted on what's working and what isn't, it might be a hardware flaw.

It doesn't matter... You could've gotten the first xbox 360 made and it wouldn't matter - xbox live updates.

Well you can always hug it and ask it to not do it again. Wink Worth a shot. Or you can just sit it ontop of your regular xbox, play it for less than 4 hours and look at it when your in pregame lobby in halo 2 for xbox live on your original xbox. Laughing
