    XBox X PSU: Circuit Breaker or Fuse?

    Thanks to this gentleman on Youtube, here is the answer at 36:36...

    Thanks guys, but I was looking for something more specific...

    [Mod Removed]

    Apparently, the Xbox One Internal Power Supply has both a fuse and a current transistor/sensor (30:16) which monitors the incoming voltage. The sensor/protection circuit (30:30) will shut down the PSU and, as in the TS Guide, you unplug it to reset it so
    it turns on again.

    As a last resort, the fuse is there to take the hit. Fuses use a thin wire that melts when the voltage gets too high to separate the current going into you XBox.

    XBox X PSU: Circuit Breaker or Fuse?

    I was about to step in here with a quote from Xbox website

    "Note: Because the console has a built-in surge protector, you should not connect it to an external surge protector. If you connect the console to another surge protector, the console cannot reach the
    full power that is needed for optimal performance."

    But this has actually disappeared from the site. So thanks gimpy, I have a bit of research to be doing now

    Nothing that is user accessible. This is why, like with any computer or piece of home electronics that it's best to use a good surge protector. Not some cheaply made power bar either .APC is my brand of choice, but there are other good ones out there.
    I tend to opt for battery backup as well, so "flash" outages don't turn off my console.

    Just thinking...

    [quote user="A Natural Smell"]Didn't they have to replace the power cable on the first xbox .[/quote]Not exactly. The original XBOX's power connector wasn't connected to anything but the power supply PCB. Continual plugging and unplugging would weaken the
    solder joints on the connector and eventually it broke. The power cable supplied in the recall included a circuit breaker (like your hair dryer) so that if the pins broke and the connector shorted the circuit breaker would trip instead of the console catching
    fire or electrocuting someone.



    tl;dr: The cable was fine, the PSU was faulty.
