    2Wire: My Xbox power supply started smoking and nearly burned my house


    2Wire (Modems/Gateways): My Xbox power supply started smoking and nearly burned my house
    My Xbox power supply started smoking today in our guest room and because someone was there we prevented the house from burning down.I still have many questions like if my Xbox is broken because of it will Microsoft send me a replacement, is it safe for me
    to plug my power supply back in and see if it works and if the power supply will still work with my Xbox? I want to know what I can do and please answer my questions because I don't know what I'm going to do. Also today the power went off and on when it was
    plugged in so that something to do with it?

    :)

  2. Smoke from the PSU

    I will assume that smoke from the power supply unit on my 360 is a bad thing. Is it going to burn down my house and where do I get a new one?

    Xbox overheated badly last night, power cord/supply melted down and nearly caught fire (setting off smoke alarms) while kids were playing --- they thought I was burning something! Will Xbox work with replacment cord/power supply; if do where do I find one?

    Xbox One Smoking

    My Xbox wouldn't turn on a few days ago. Power supply was orange. Bought a new power supply per the suggestion of the Xbox rep. Plugged in new power supply... same problem. Orange light, wouldn't boot. Took my console to a Microsoft store. Technician
    plugged it in. Wouldn't start. He tried to eject the game, and then a burning electronic smell started. Smoke started pouring out of the vent on top. I quickly told him and he unplugged it and told me there was nothing he could do to help me.... chatting
    with support now.

    This really sucks though! I bought the console at launch and spent $500, now I'll have to spend about another $150 to fix it! For the $650 I will have to invest in this system, I almost could have bought 2 brand new Xbox Ones. Sigh.... This will be the
    last time I ever buy a new MS product. Had 4 Xbox 360's and I bought it at launch too. What a joke.

    Using a UK 220w power brick with my new US Xbox One

    hi how did you get a replacement of power supply in saudi arabia. I did the same mistake and my power supply is burned. I am not sure if it has damaged the console or no

    xbox one power brick problem

    If the power supply was very hot and it smelt of burn, it probably has problems with the electric capacitors. My advice is to replace it as soon as possible. Alternatively, try using a compressor to remove dust accumulated from the holes. In this way, you
    will not smell burnt (because the dust burns if there is heat) and try again using the power supply in a ventilated place.
