  1. Xbox One PSU


    I have had two power supplies do the same thing to me. The first power supply worked for a good amount of time, 2 or 3 years. After that it started sounding like the fan in the PSU was going out. I was living in a dusty area at the time so I figured that
    it was just dirty. So I got a new one, moved to a place that wasn't dusty. The same thing happened with the second power supply within 1 - 3 months. No dust, hardly used. I did research and plugged it into a wall outlet instead of a surge protector, it's not
    over heating, it's not on the carpet or in a poorly insulated place; but yet the fan sounds like it is dying. Every once in a while the whole system will just crash. My concern is not the power supply, but my Xbox. I know it's possible that I could have just
    gotten a bad PSU but, is it possible that my Xbox has a short where the PSU plugs into the console? Could my Xbox be causing the PSU fan to die? I keep my Xbox on Power-Saving mode to prevent more ware and tear on the PSU fan. When the Xbox is off the PSU
    light is orange and when it's on the light is green. I have a hard time believing that my first PSU fan started going out in a different location and once I move and have new PSU, it starts to die the exact same way while hardly being used at all. Any ideas?

    :)

    Can I use an Xbox 360 slim power brick on an Xbox One

    Not unless you want a broken brand new xbox one, The xbox 360 power brick is totally different from the xbox one power brick and Im pretty sure they both have different voltage and different amperage out put? ah Hell here's some info from xbox.com I looked up for you below about the whole thing....

    About your Xbox 360 console’s power supply unit and cord
    Your Xbox 360 console has an external fan-assisted power supply unit (PSU). The PSU has the same basic design in all countries. The maximum dimensions of the PSU are as follows:

    • The 220-240V power supply measures 8.62 x 3.03 x 2.13 inches (approximately 21.9 x 7.7 x 5.4 cm).
    • The 110-127V power supply measures 8.42 x 3.03 x 2.13 inches (approximately 21.4 x 7.7 x 5.4 cm).
    Some PSUs are shorter but have the same capabilities. For example, the PSU is slightly smaller in countries that use 110-volt electricity.

    • Xbox 360 E Console: The Xbox 360 E console uses a 120-watt PSU.
    • Xbox 360 S console: The Xbox 360 S console uses a 135-watt PSU.
    • Xbox 360 original console: There are several versions of the PSU for the original Xbox 360 console. Depending on the power requirements of the console, a 203-watt PSU, a 175-watt PSU, or a 150-watt PSU may have been included.
    XBOX ONE Power supply unit and cord
    Your Xbox One console has an external fan-assisted power supply unit (PSU). It measures 6.69 x 1.88 x 2.96 inches (approximately 17 x 4.8 x 7.5 cm). Note that the PSU has the same basic design in all countries. There are no dimensional changes between the 100-110V, 220-240V, and 100-240V versions.

    Important Microsoft does not license any non-Microsoft accessories that plug into the Xbox One console's power socket. The use of any accessory other than the standard Xbox One PSU may damage your console and void your console warranty.

    Notes

    • PSUs are designed to be used only in the regions where they are sold.
    • Don't try to use an Xbox One PSU that was built for a region that has different power requirements.
    • Don't use an unlicensed accessory, such as a non-Microsoft replacement PSU, or any accessory that plugs in between the console and the PSU.
    • Don't use the Xbox One external PSU outside the country where it was sold. If you use the PSU in a different country, it or your console may be damaged, and the warranty may be invalidated.
    • The Xbox One PSU contains an internal fuse that helps protect your console from voltages that are too high and power surges. However, the PSU is a sealed unit. Therefore, you can’t replace the internal fuse.
    Power cords

    Xbox One PSU [​IMG]


    DC power cord

    The PSU has a hard-wired, direct-current (DC) power cord that connects the PSU to the console.

    • The DC power cord is approximately 3 feet, 6 inches (1.1 meters) long.
    • A proprietary power connector is permanently attached to the end of the DC power cord. This connector is designed specifically for the Xbox One console power socket.
    AC power cord

    The AC power cord connects the PSU to the wall socket. The AC power cord is detachable from the PSU.

    • The AC power cord is approximately 5 feet, 9 inches (1.2 meters) long.
    • The end of the power cord that plugs into the PSU has two holes. If you use a power cord other than the one designed for your PSU, you may damage it or your console.
    • The plug at the end of the power cord that connects to your electrical outlet can be one of several types. The plug type depends on the country and region where you purchased your console.
    Power supply placement, temperature, and noise
    To provide sufficient cooling, the Xbox One external power supply uses a built-in fan to blow air through the PSU.

    Notes

    • The PSU fan automatically starts when you press the power button to start your console.
    • Typically, the fan makes a "whirring" noise.
    • When your console is in energy-saving mode, or when it’s disconnected from the PSU, the fan doesn’t operate.
    • If your console is in Instant-On power mode, the PSU is still on and the fan will spin.
    • The speed of the fan increases or decreases when the temperature of the PSU changes. If the fan speed changes, the whirring noise that the fan produces increases or decreases.
    To help the power supply operate efficiently and safely, follow these precautions:

    • Don't block any ventilation openings on the PSU.
    • Don't put the PSU on a bed, a sofa, or any other soft surface that might block the ventilation openings.
    • Don't put the PSU in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless that space is well-ventilated.
    • Don't put the PSU near any heat source, such as a radiator, a heat register, a stove, or an amplifier.
    • Don't stack other electronic devices on top of the PSU.
    • Make sure that the PSU is positioned horizontally and lays flat on the four rubber pads on its base.

    Can I????

    You're asking if you can substitute a 360 PSU for an Xbox One PSU? No.

    You're sending in your PSU? Why? Exchange the system with your retailer. The Xbox One is less than 30 days old.

    Power Brick Fan Sounds Like It's Going To Explode

    I don't know anyone else with an xbox one, but if anyone does, it might be worth trying the 'noisy' PSU on another xbox one to see if it's a console or PSU issue? I still think it's a PSU one, though we can never tell.

    New Xbox One Power Supply

    Actually Microsoft has warned you against the use of xbox one consoles in other regions that have different power requirements:

    support.xbox.com/.../about-power-supply

    PSUs are designed to be used only in the regions where they are sold.

    Don't try to use an Xbox One PSU that was built for a region that has different power requirements.

    Don't use an unlicensed accessory, such as a non-Microsoft replacement PSU, or any accessory that plugs in between the console and the PSU.

    Don't use the Xbox One external PSU outside the country where it was sold. If you use the PSU in a different country, it or your console may be damaged, and the warranty may be invalidated.
