    Xbox One, Flashing Orange PSU (No sound)


    Had a look all over the forums and Google but couldn't find any solid solutions/answers to this issue.

    So I have a background in engineering and repairs, and thus a good friend of mine has come to me with his Xbox one Original, bought it off some guy way back when second hand, warranty seal broken ect ect way out of warranty back then and 100%.

    Now it's worked for him since about 2014 to this day with zero issues, but now it won't do anything, you can sit there and slap the power button as much as you want but nothing.

    Only indication of some sort of life is the PSU just flashing orange, I would assume this is some sort of error code but again I can't find anything on it bar from some hastily made YouTube videos of people just going out and buying five new PSUs with no
    effect.

    If anyone has had this issue or knows what it entails please get back to me, he you user or Microsoft employee.

    Thanks guys!

    :)

    Orange led on when PSU connected to console without any electricity power

    Hi,

    I received my Xbox one today. Plugged PSU the electricity, orange led turn on, plug PSU to console.. nothing happen. Then I took out the electricity from PSU, the orange light still turn on. Take out the PSU plug from console, orange led was gone. Plugged
    back again to electricity, nothing happen. Change several power outlet didn't help either. However, If I put the PSU back to console again the orange led come back to life again.

    Any ideas ? Should I replace my PSU ?

    Regards,

    Dondy

    Hello

    Can you please try using the troubleshooting guide below for your issue. If after you remove the power cable from the wall outlet for a couple of minutes if the problem still occurs it looks like you will probably need to replace the power or send it for
    repair.

    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.

    Xbox One power supply blinks white then orange 3 times, but console won't power on.

    Hi J! The steps for troubleshooting your power supply can be found at the following link:

    support.xbox.com/.../console-wont-power-on

    but to make a long story short, a flashing orange power light usually indicates a power supply problem - however, since you tried your power supply on your friend's system and it worked, but his gave the same error on your system, this sounds very strange
    to me. The only other thing listed in that support article is to try using a DIFFERENT wall outlet, since sometimes wall outlets do malfunction.

    I'm assuming since you tried your supply on your friend's console, that your PSU was unplugged from the wall AND your system for longer than 10 seconds? This process resets the surge protector inside the Xbox PSU.

    Beyond that, unfortunately I think the only step will be to contact support and explain this to them - they may be familiar with the "white-orange-white-orange" blink pattern, which may well indicate a problem with your console, not just the PSU.
