    Anyone in UK sent their noisy power brick off for replacement?


    My power brick is making an abnormal noise.

    It started off as a quiet buzzing but it seems to have got louder over time.

    It's now so loud that I can still hear it when the 360 is switched on.

    Has any one else in the UK who had a noisy power brick managed to get a replacement?

    If so how long did it take from the moment you sent it off to when the replacement arrived?

    And also is the replacement quiet?

    :)

    Power brick noise?

    Hi all,

    anyone had a replacement from MS with the noisy power brick, and if it was fixed?

    Cheers

    Xbox 360 Slim noisy power adapter

    I know this is a little late but might help others.

    I have also had a noisy power adapter and have had it exchanged. The new adapter is almost silent when you power up the console. If you listen hard you can just hear a faint whisper of air from the fan in the brick.

    The old brick blew really hard from the moment I switched it on and the noise level from the brick was considerably louder than the console itself. The power adapter should not be louder than the console as mine was.

    Not sure if this is relevant but the noisy power brick I owned was a (rev b) purchased in the UK. I've seen it mentioned elsewhere that this type of brick is noisy so perhaps there is a problem.

    Hope you got your brick changed.

    my xbox console is making terrible groaning noise

    it turned out to be the power brick! opened the case and got some dust bunnies out of there. then realized the case fans weren't noisy at all, and that it was really the power brick all along

    Xbox One pretty warm in standby. Power brick noise too.

    My power brick is noisy as well. I've been unplugging it at night because I otherwise cannot sleep. My XBOX is in my bedroom.

    Xbox one power brick

    All Xbox 360 power bricks have fans. They vary in the noise made. I would expect the Xbox One power bricks to be the same. I've had noisy fans in 360 power bricks and I've had silent fans. Luck of the draw.

    If it's really annoying, I would pack the whole thing up and exchange it at your retailer for another unit.

    Does XBOX ONE purchased in US work in Europe w/o limitations?

    Also to play this all you must do is switch he power brick correct? I don't need any loud noisy transformer do I?
