    Solid red light on console, solid orange light on power brick


    During a thunder storm the other night, my xbox 360 slim, as well as my TV and other devices in the same outlet powered off. My house did not lose power, so I believe what happened to be a power surge. Now my when I power on my xbox, I get a solid red light
    and a blank screen. I tried taking out the HDD. I tried disconnecting/reconnecting cords. I tried a different outlet. I read if all that fails, I need a new power brick....but my power brick has a solid orange light. Not red. Not flashing. Help me please.
    Could the power brick still be the problem if it has a solid orange light?

    :)

    My Xbox 360 Slim turns off after I turn it on.

    Darknessx03,



    When your Xbox shuts down what color is the light on the power brick? It might be that your power brick needs to be replaced.



    Solid green or solid orange light: Your power supply is working. If your console won’t turn on, try our

    Xbox No Power Solution
    .

    Flashing orange, solid red, or no light: Your power supply may need to be replaced. Try the following solutions:

    1. Try plugging your console’s power supply into a different electrical outlet. Do not use a surge protector.
    2. If the power supply light is solid red or flashing orange, unplug the power supply and let it cool for 30 minutes. Then, plug the power supply back into the outlet.
    If your power supply light is still flashing orange, solid red, or unlit, your power supply needs to be replaced. You can

    Order a replacement Xbox 360 power supply
    from our Xbox Online Service Center. Console registration is required to replace the power supply under warranty (the power supply warranty is the same as your console warranty).

    Hey there Cloudhauler Solid red light on console, solid orange light on power brick :)



    I understand where you are coming from with 2 conflicting problems countering each others solutions out. According to

    'this guide'
    even if you follow the selection for an orange light on the power supply, it suggests still trying a replacement. My advice would be to try that and hopefully it resolved the issue for you.



    Once you have a replacement, if you still have problems then follow through with the steps in the below page under section "There is a solid red light on my console and the screen is blank.
    "

    I hope this helps.

    AC converter issue?

    Yes, I understand that, that means that there is an issue with the power supply and it needs to be replaced.

    1. Try plugging your console’s power supply into a different electrical outlet. Do not use a surge protector.
