    Xbox slim won't turn on

    I was playing my xbox two weeks ago and it randomly shut down. The PSU turned to a red led. I tried to unplug the connection and start it back up again, no luck. Once the PSU is plugged in it's on standby (orange) when I try power on the machine the xbox
    green light turns on for a split second but the PSU brick turns straight from orange to red which powers off the machine. I've tried everything, disconnecting everything, replacing PSU and I'm still faced with the same problem.

    The strange thing is even through a google search I haven't found any problems like this. The problem is always the PSU for everyone else but for me it seems like it's the console. Does anyone know what the problem may be? Fan failure perhaps? because if
    the console won't turn on due to the CPU being overheated once cooled down it should boot for at list a few minutes before going into safety mode.

    Regards,

    Stroppy.

    The my diskdrive is broken thread

    @goatsnatcher - The ps4 doesn't have problems. The Internet made a lot of incorrect noise and the failure rate is at around 1%. Due to the 360 fiasco at launch everyone jumped on the PS4 IS BROKEN bandwagon. I along with 90% of the people over at PSU

    Rumor: Smaller Xbox One incoming

    The RROD problem was with the chips and power supply not actually the case. The Xenon chip and the big PSU had the huge failure rate. Once they moved to the Falcon and Jasper ( couple other chips in limited production were also released) and smaller PSU's
    the problem ended.

    I think the new slim case will be more of a cosmetic upgrade rather than a performance upgrade, that's why if they expect us to buy a new console every two years they'll need to justify it with performance increases.

    360 does not stay on long enuff to even start/play a game

    If the PSU is green, there's a good chance that it may be overheating or suffering from a generic hardware failure. Phat consoles can no longer be repaired. Make sure that all your cables are attached properly, maybe try to use your console with no accessories
    or HDD. If it still shuts down, it may need to be serviced.

    Power supply shouldn't be plugged into a surge protector??

    It is 100% not a good idea to plug into a Surge Protector. This has actually been a BIG no-no since the 360, because the 360 PSU and the X1 PSU both have a built-in surge protector. What happens is, even with a brand new power strip/surge protector in Mint
    condition, by plugging the PSU into it, then it into the wall, you are putting two layers of surge protection between the wall and the console. This effectively chokes the power flow, which is very dangerous especially during the startup routines, when the
    console actually needs additional power above its normal operating requirements.

    Over time, the reduced flow of power can cause issues with the console, including complete failure of specific components, rendering the console unable to function. This was actually one of the leading causes of RRoD on the Xbox 360, such that MS actually
    had to amend the setup instructions (and the help documentation) to specifically say NOT to use a surge protector (and they continued this with the Xbox One.) I have also seen numerous reports of people with things like startup failures and drive failures,
    who ended up tracing their issue back to the fact that they were using a separate surge protector. (In many cases, eliminating the surge protector fixed the issue, but for a few, it was too late.)

    It does feel very odd to NOT use a power supply and go straight to the wall, especially with sophisticated electronics, but speaking from experience, it can cause lots of problems! :)

    Xbox One Power Problem

    Actually there is an even easier way to test your PSU (Power Supply Unit). Give this a shot:

    Try unplugging your PSU from both the outlet it's plugged into and the Xbox. Then take it and plug it into a wall outlet directly, no power strips or surge protectors, and confirm the Orange/Amber colored light comes on. Once you have that, then plug it
    into the system and watch that light on the PSU. One of four things is going to happen:

    1) The light will change to White for 5-10 seconds and then go back to Orange/Amber. This is the ideal outcome. The white light for that interval means it's charged the capacitors in the system and it should come on by pressing the power sensor on the
    front of the console.

    2) The light will flash between White and Orange/Amber several times. This indicates a short in the PSU and it needs to be replaced.

    3) The light will do nothing and just stay Orange/Amber. This indicates that the PSU is unable to pass power to the system or even recognize it at all. This usually means that the console isn't accepting power and the console needs to be replaced.

    4) The light will go out completely when you plug it in. This means a complete hardware failure in the PSU. It needs to be replaced.

    Use these steps to either fix the issue or at the very least narrow down the issue to the actual culprit.

    Good luck, let us know how it goes.
